Baggage door catches ripped out.

OK, so I've had two different people decide to shut the baggage doors on my 96' Suncruiser, not realizing that they were ripping the door latches out of the side of my MH, the kind that hold the door up and open. I'm so frustrated because I know they were just trying to help (the last was the DW). If anyone has had any experience with this I would appreciate all comments. I mean what do I have to do make signs that say don't touch my doors? ): Sorry, just venting... Anyhow, now I need to find a way to repare the fiberglass and re-attache the latches. The fiber is very weak now on one spot, feels like the walls are kinda peeling apart from each other. Should I try an epoxy and just scew them back on? Thanks all. (:

I can't picture in my mind what is failing. I would think the catches are attached to metal. Can you post a picture?

Anyone have any luck building on a support to these doors to accept a gas strut?

I'm thinking it might be those little spring loaded clips that hold the door in the up position on some models.

Yes thats exactly it. Little spring loaded clips that are screwed directly into the fiberglass that Hold the baggage sopra in the up position.
