When I was de-winterizing our 2011 Zinger camper this weekend, I noticed that the inside plastic panel on the door had developed a couple of cracks running across it. The outside still looks fine.

Is there a place where I can order a new door skin, or the material to cut a new skin from? Or do I have to replace the entire door? I noticed a few strange marks on the outside of the door skin like the plastic it stressed, and could possible crack in the future. Is that common for those doors to crack like that?
Any info would be a huge help!

Thanks!

If you are handy with basic hand tools you should be able to repair it. A good rv dealer, if open, can supply materials.

Some cities have RV salvage yards -- don't know if there is one close to you.

Or, there is always the RVer's best friend -- duct tape! It comes in a variety of decorator colors. [emoticon]

I just did mine, which was worse than yours.
Home Depot or Lowes carry the material. IIRC it was about 20.00 for a 4x8 sheet.
The original is glued to the styrofoam insides
It can be seperated pretty easy. yours is in good enough shape that if it comes off easy, you will be able to use it for a pattern.
Mine came off in many pieces. Arizonas heat just destroys plastic. So I was able to just get the rough outlines for the overall door, and I used a router for the door latch.

Colaw is just down I-44 from you. You might check them out for a door assembly removed from another RV.
