    How did they ever get the name "Habitation Doors?" It's like calling dustmen, 'sanitary engineers.' Thank heavens people don't refer to their house front doors as habitation doors. Can we not just refer to them as 'entrance doors?"

    It's to distinguish between it and the cab doors .. which are also entrance doors..

    some A class and RVs only have one door which is then called the house door .. complete with door bell, lantern light, cat flap and hanging basket :Laughing::Laughing:

    But then we would need another door to act as the exit door.
    Could we call them 'multi-function ingress/egress portal systems'?

    we dont have a 'habitation door'.....we have a side door and always will.
    the cab doors are 'the front doors':thumb::BigGrin:

    not wide enough to be called doors anyway.....more like mis-matched panel gaps with a hinged filler panel.:RollEyes:

    South Wales,

    You would not laugh if you saw the price, for my (2002) Swift 630g!!! The door has de-laminated but swift do not stock a door.

    So the door frame, the door hinges, the door lock and the fly-screen door all have to be replaced along the the door its self which will be of a different design that the original.

    If I could buy the original door I could do the job myself in about 1/2 an hour.

    Doug...
