    Small as in narrow? The wider the door the more space you lose inside plus the more room you need to open it & the more the wind will pull it out of your hand etc. etc.

    There are companies who will fit wider doors for disabled access etc. but will mean losing some furniture/seating space.

    We love the big door on our PVC which unlike some designs has nothing built into the opening, such as a bit of the kitchen. It makes it feel very light and airy inside.

    It's all to do with The Bible, Genesis, chapter 2. :)

    " And on the third day, God did make a motorhome, and spaketh to Adam, and said, Adam, this is your motorhome. You can use it to explore this world I have created for thee, and for your offspring. It is a goodly motorhome, and doth possess a fold down bed, a grill, for making your toast, and a fridge." And Adam was duly amazed, and walked around the motorhome God had made for him. He fell down on his knees, and did cry out to The Lord, and thanked him greatly. But then, he did espy the very small door, and in his anguish, he spake again unto The Lord (who was on his smoke break) "Oh God, why doth the habitation door have such a small opening?" And The Lord replied, "Adam, in my wisdom, I saw that as soon as you would drive out of Edan, you would stop and pick up the first fat slapper you encountered on the road. Stop you may, but you will never get her on board...........":);)
