    Hi All,

    Now that we have been out and about, we would like to replace our existing door with the stable door type. Can these be sourced from a breakers yard? If so, recommendations please.

    Thanks

    :thanks:​

    i would say that all they do to make the stable door is to cut it in half then fit aluminium edging and a locking device.

    not on most modern doors with 2 point latches, it would mean cutting the internal mechanism in half

    as for fitting a second hand door...thats a whole can of worms even if you could find one. they distort and go out of shape too easily

    You would need to measure up, and then have a look at what german van doors would fit. These can be sourced from breakers, but are not as cheap as you would think! I beleive they are around £600 new, so a breaker could easily charge £200.

    Also, another consideration is the texture of the door, as most conti's have textured sides to prevent ice/snow sticking.

    Conversion would be the easiest option, assuming the latches are single point - or you could convert to single point ones.

    Had a guy looking at our Motorhome and pointed out that the door adds to the rigidity of the motorhome.:Confused:
