    While travelling with the caravan an item inside moved and has put a big scratch along the fridge door.
    I've priced a new one at £135. It's a Thetford N112 with a curved silver/grey door.
    We're now looking at selling the van to raise funds for our first motorhome and it sticks out like a sore thumb.
    Has anyone had one repaired and if so who did it and what was the finished job like ?
    Thanks in advance.

    Is it metal and painted or plastic?, I should think one of these mobile places like chips away or summit like that would be able to help(y)

    There is a fridge door expert on here - I think his name is @DavidG58
    I believe he may have a stock of spare fridge doors.
    He's certainly the go to guy for all things fridge door related. :whistle:

    If I were you I'd look into having it repaired. I know our fridge freezer looks to have a laminated plastic front to it . It matches the work surfaces, so I recon, there must be a way that you could take it out and change it , if you wanted. To repair or for a new look.

    To be honest I was quite impressed with your price of £135 for a new door, you might find that is for the door without the panel though

    Dometic want £400 just for a door I need due to broken fitting, which doesn't come with the décor panel, hope we can move ours across as that adds another £180

    good luck with it

    Thanks for the replies.
    Here is my fridge.
    I've emailed Thetford so I'll keep you informed of any updates.

    Just a google picture Tony. I can assure you it's scratched. Could have kicked myself when I saw it.
