Help with shutting outside door

Okay, I have a 1989 Sunline Satellite Series travel trailer, has a screen door that latches fine but when we got home from camping, and me having to shut the door really hard all weekend, we see that the very bottom aluminum door frame on the corner is hitting the bottom of the threshold plate (the part of the frame you actually walk on). Now the door will not shut all the way and stay shut. Really is all I can say at this point due to being really tired for one and another, not knowing what to do now. We are new campers and need a little help in adjusting doors if possible. I looked at the door on the outside, it actually looks like it won't adjust and we did adjust the inside plates for the door bolts, but no luck there either. So, please, anyone have ideas and if I end up having to replace the entire door and frame, anyone know how much this might cost me?

I fought a dragging door for two years trying every tweak and adjustment of the door and hinges I could. I finally came to realize there was nothing wrong with the door or hinges , but that the sill plate wasn't level. A few gentle raps with a ball peen hammer on one end leveled it right out. Doesn't sound like a very technical fix but when all else had been exhausted, it did the trick with no appearance damage and no more door drag for 2 years since.
