Photo of door request

Does any one have a picture of the current door in the open position?
The way I understand it is that these doors will not open all the way. Can they be altered to open?

The doors have a 90 degree stop which can easily be removed with 3 screws removal. However you now need a door stop/holder. I purchased a suction holder and put a strap on mine to keep open.

I may add a permanent stanchion once I determine a good anchor place.

Here you go. They switched to the 90 degree door just before we got our trailer and we were not thrilled with the thought of it, we like to have our front door open a lot. But after using it we are really happy with it. Yes, it does restrict the view a bit at times since it doesn't open all the way. But to us that is more than offset by the convenience of using it. It springs open when unlatched and stops at the 90 degree open position, no need to bother with the latch on the side of the trailer like most screen doors. And when we are inside, with the front door closed and want to open it and have just the screen door, it is really nice to be able to just pop the latch and have the front door open itself while the screen door stays shut instead of having to go outside to latch the door open.

If it works, we are prepared to like it..the door on our Casita was a pain..had to have a rubber bumper installed outside to keep it from banging into the sidewalls if a breeze caught it b4 I could latch it..
Then, if the awning was deployed, the outboard door edge had to be bungeed to the front awning support brace, to keep it from banging closed..and of course there had to be something soft jammed between the door edge and that aluminum brace..to protect that fiberglass door edge..always an annoying minor problem.

We have this door as well. I thought it would be irritating and we would take off the bar but it works fine and I never think about it. It stays open really well.
