I agree, in part. The cost of the door will not bust my deductible. So, I'm going to be out less than I would be filing a claim. If I file, I will be out the deductible, and I'll face a rate increase because I've had a claim. All that plus... I haven't seen too many raves about the work done at dealerships. One more thing... I am going to use the trailer in a few weeks, probably before the door gets here. I don't want the dealer to have it for months while I postpone or cancel trips. When I spoke to a dealer he said he wanted the trailer on his lot so that when the part came they could fix it without waiting for me to bring it.

Thanks...

My door arrived today. It's the wrong door. It has the correct graphics shipped with it and I sent pictures, VIN, and specified which door it is. So I got a back/kitchen door which is the main entrance, and a 26" door... instead of a front/bedroom door which is a 24" door. I'm now faced with repacking the thing and waiting again... depending on their response.

That sucks! Friggn thieves I can't stand a thief!! I have been tempted to go redneck as I am I guess and reinforce the door and sides with metal instead of wood and thrubolt sin hopes that would remedy any "give" if someone tried to pry the door open. However, if they want to get in, they will. Hell, just break a window....
Have you thought about an alarm system? just a thought... Sorry about your trailer....

Forest River is making good on this, so I can't talk too badly about the ladies in their parts group. Mistakes happen, but it's how problems are handled that makes or breaks a situation. They're sending me the correct door without further cost to me. The trailer's usable as it is and I'll be using it in a couple of weeks. My new door is probably 10 days out, and should be an easy replacement. I think this is a pretty isolated incident so I'm not going to worry about an alarm system or anything. I didn't really need all of this going on right now, but it is what it is... life goes on.
