I ordered thermofoil doors from big box store. Sometime later after I did this mod, I realized the exact matching doors could be ordered from Keystone. Here are some pictures of how I did this mod.

It is very easy to screw additional framing to the
existing aluminum.

Mine had one new drawer, i put two new ones on in the event that my color match and the framing profiles might be slightly off..........I wanted make sure they were the same.

I did the same thing to the pantry to ensure when i put a larger/longer length door on that it would match and look better.

I did not post the pictures with the new drawer fronts.....because i had literally done it the afternoon before we left for disney.

You can order good doors from any good Shop. If you cannot find what you need i can sell them to you.........and have them drop shipped/ups'd directly to you.

I have a woodworking business/cabinet shop and can get you what you need if necessary. I outsource much of our doors because it is a controlled cost....when we need to make the doors we do.........

Link to doors I sell

As far as cutting you just take everything off and see where you can cut.......and Git-R-Done :)

The end panel was solid. So,, it had to be removed, cut to size for the door, reinstalled with the additional framing, add the hinges and catch.

Here is a link to my gallery. There are descriptions with the pics there.

After you cut the opening use some white binding on the edges to hide the rough wood. Here is a link to buy the doors direct from the manufacturer. They have a couple of shades of white.

I bought mine from Rocklers THEN found this source.
Its really an easy project and if you measure the width of your margin and draw a line to follow with the saber saw you will get a nice opening that is flush with the framework.

Going to bring this one back to life after almost 12 years.  I am fine with accessing the storage from inside the trailer as is when my 2018 210URS is at the campsite, but I would like to know if there are any good ways to add exterior access doors for this area.  That way I can stock/empty/clean it at home when I have the King Bed rear slide retracted.  I was thinking it would look like adding storage doors that match the one on front of the unit.

 

Thanks
