I have a 1960 Shasta Deluxe. The baggage doors are too large to fit underneath the bed. The previous birch extended into the door opening by a couple inches - When you open the baggage door from the outside, you see the old insulation and a couple inches of the birch paneling. Has anyone else encountered this? If so, how did you handle it. I'd hate to have the doors open above the bed frame, but the paneling left exposed in the door is not great either. My old 57 Shasta had doors that fit fine under the bed but were top hinged, as compared to side hinged on the 1960.

This is it exactly. I am tempted to use smaller doors, if I can find 2 that match. My other thought is to "finish" the back side of the doors - reinforce edges with wood and put birch on them so they look nice. Hate to have a large door and only be able to use part of the opening.
