Missing rear engine door 87 Vogue

Lost the rear engine compartment door on my 1987 40 foot Vogue III motor home. Does anyone have any good places to find one or have one made. Thank you for your help.

We had a missing door for fridge and made one.

If you have photos of the door as a general guide then most body shops and even ac shops can make one.

Difficult part is if it is a vented door as then it is not just a flat panel but then like the above photo it can be a simple frame with cross bars of z stock added.

There are salvage yards as well so search forum for rv salvage to go that route.

But a flat panel door can be easily made for not much money.

Find another user who can supply photos and dimensions will help.

Yes that picture is the very same as mine. Do you have a spare. I have tried several RV junk yards but no luck. Have been looking into having one made. Thank you for your help. Richard

you could always make a template out of wood and find a sheet metal shop and purchase a sheet of 1/8 gauge sheet metal and do a little tin knocking and make your own if your handy with tool's.

I can do a templet of the opening on my MH and then match the style of louvers to one of to side vent. Just thought if someone out their had a lead on one I would go for it before building one. Thanks for all info and help. Richard
