When we took our new to us 2016 Escape 17B on a 5 week inaugural camping trip this spring, I discovered that a tall person had to watch out for the cabinet door above the fridge. We use this cabinet to hold all our dishes, so it has to be opened often. Its easy to forget to close it.
This door has a solid oak frame with a sharp corner. If you don't make sure it isn't open when you go near it, you can hit your head.
After hitting my head on it more than once, I vowed to do something about it before we took the trailer out again.
This type of door is called a tambour door. I've seen them on older Airstreams. Escape should offer one for this particular cabinet as an option.
There were a number of articles describing how to make a door like this available on the internet. I found a Fine Woodworking article entitled "Reviving the Tambour Door" to be the one I turned to most often.
Other articles I learned bits and pieces from included: "Making the Tambour for a Tambour-top box", "How to Make Tambour Sliding Cabinet Doors", "AW Extra 6/26/14 – Tambour Doors", and "New Yankee Workshop S10E13 Roll Top Desk Part 2".
I removed the inside panels from the cabinet to put in a bit more structure for the tambour track and for a shelf I had decided to install as well.
I used patience and a very sharp chisel to make the sides of the cabinet parallel and the same distance apart everywhere, trying for the nearest 1/32", but accepting 1/16". Escape uses various sized staples when they build their cabinets. It can be a pain to remove panels or add structure to the cabinet frames.
I used red oak for the tambour and the tracks. Since I had no access to the rear of the cabinet I made the tambour tracks in two pieces to allow the tambour to be installed, like this:
I installed the upper part of the tracks,
then I slid the tambour door into the upper track.
Then I installed the lower part of the tracks and closed the door. Voila:
