Repair - Replace Cargo Door on 5th Wheel

Hi,

I broke the hinge on my front cargo bay door. It looks like a long piano hinge but just hinges on each end. I broke one side. It looks like the door was put on with screws and then someone went along and put a lot (20) small rivets along the hinge. Anyway, does anyone know how I go about repairing the door? Has anyone had this done and know what someplace like CampingWorld would charge? The 5th wheel is a Forest River/Flagstaff.

Is it reasonable to go to the manufacturer and order a replacement door?

Any information about such a repair is appreciated.
Thanks, BobL

I just priced an entire bay door for my bounder and they were under 150.00 of course not painted. I thought that was cheap.
