    Hi
    Does anyone have any good ways of keeping the door open on a Hobby 750? As it is not flat it can't go back to the main body and rest in a clip like a caravan door. Nearly lost the door a couple of times today in this high wind!

    We use 2 bungees to keep ours open ( not a Hobby though!)
    1 doubled around the wing mirror and 1 doubled through the inside door handle then hooked together!

    I dont know whats stopping you shape of body or ram at the top
    If its shape, take a lookat an American RV the door stay keeps the door about 3to4 inches away from the bodywork
    I'll try and find a link to one or a pic
    If its the ram thas preventing you concider removing it altogether

    Thanks, that looks good. It is the shape of the door as it is like an airplanes in its shape.

    On our old 650 with the curvy door we used an 'eddington flux' door stop - cute little curvy plastic wedge very cheap on amazon!:thumb:
