Need help with Front and Rear Bunk Doors - Delamation

Hello Group,

We have a 2008 TLX180T Hybrid Camper and both the front and rear bunk doors will need to be repaired. I have searched online for new bunk doors for our camper but R Vision went bankrupt 1 year after we had our camper. The issue we are having is the area where we lie down, that area is bubbling and is seperating from the door. I'm not that handy when it comes to measuring and cutting wood. Does anyone know of anywhere that would repair this or is it even worth repairing? We thought about selling it as is.

Sounds like water is/has gotten in past the top seal and ruined to interior surface of the 'door.' If everything else in the camper is in good shape, selling it as is will be a big hit in the sale price. You might check with a local carpenter/handyman or RV repair shop to see if it's an easy repair and worth it before selling.

I mentioned a carpenter/handyman because they would probably be much cheaper and faster than taking it to an RV repair shop.

Water could have gotten in around the trim edge seals. Also the hinge on the older hybrids was like a piano hinge where there was space every 2"where water could get into. Our newer hybrid the hinge is solid. Yes, bunk door can be fixed. Just your local Craigslist under the RVing tab. I always see folks doing RV repairs listed.

Hi there, I have had to repair, front bunk door for same reason, cut out insulation from the inside, be careful when removing, the exterior skin is just that THIN skin, replaced with solid foam insulation and 1/4/' luan (found original was just that, foam covered with luan on both sides, delam is luan swelling)I was able to save the vinyl covering on the inside and reattached it, then covered the entire thing with indoor outdoor carpet. This won't do any good unless you replace the rubber seals, that is easy peel and stick, be sure it is straight or it will leak again.
