I have my door off my Shasta Airflyte and have the wood out of it. It was in surprisingly GREAT shape with ZERO rot. The only reason I had to replace it was because it had been painted like every other surface in my interior. So I've got the door out and apart, and had all new threshold and framing pieces made that the door attaches to. Now, here's my dilemma. The paint has been mostly stripped form my door. I have new skins for my entire camper, and it will be left with the polar white on top, and a painted color on the bottom. So I'm hoping my metal fabricator might have the polar white and can fabricate me some new skin for the door so it matches the camper. How difficult is it to get the door skin out from the door and put it back together? I hate to do it because as I mentioned, my door is in great shape. But I need to have it match the new skins somehow, so I see no other way than to re-skin it.
I made a new door for my last Airflyte and it’s really not hard to do. The tricky part is the trim around the edge. I made everything using a rented hand brake from Home Depot. The metal was leftover polar white pieces from the reskin of the camper.
old door with hack window from a former owner
Hand Brake cost about $45 for a half day
You will use the old trim as your guide
All the trim and new door jams
If the old trim is in good condition you can just remove the paint and polish it.

I made mine from aluminum sheets from homedepot. I built a homemade brake to bend the edges and did the 6” metal brakes with a pizza cutter. Turned out great. I had about $40 in it. Sorry I can’t post pics on here but if you want to pm me your email I could send some to you.
