Got her open today to sweep out some crust and kill a resident black widow the size of a thin mint. Also got a few pics of some upcoming work....and keep in mind, nothing here is keeping me from setting up this weekend in the woods for my little girl's very first camping trip. Here.We.Go.

First three pics show issues with the lower front door. The insides are toast, thus the duct tape holding the bottom trim in place. This causes a couple issues- The bottom trim has to be supported with duct tape. The door sags, since the hinge mounting hardware has nothing really to bite into. You need to play with the door (not alot, but a bit) to get it to shut square. The upper door doesn't stay completely linked up after totally set up( due to the saggy bottom half). I have a buddy with some leftover sheet PVC x 3/4" thick that i think would work nicely here.
The latch seems fairly new, and works fine-but is a tad loose and shifts after a firm door shut.
Next, the interior paneling is pretty eaten up along the bottom edge, If I cant make a repair that leaves a nice enough looking fix, I'll need to replace the panel while the door is on the workbench. I totally do not want to take the door completely apart, but we'll see.
Last, there is a pretty decent gap left above the lower door when the camper is stowed. It appears there used to be some sort of seal on top that has deteriorated at some point (see photo), I 'll check a couple local RV joins for availability/pricing on that. Til then, a piece of pipe insulation will do.

The last two pics show the upper door insert. This should be a very simple fix, but the replacement material has me scratching my head. I'll bring in whats left of the cracked piece with me to Home Depot or Lowes to see whats on the shelf. Dixie RV told me it would be pretty pricey to have an entire sheet of the stock material shipped. In the last pic, it shows a small tab at the upper corner of the insert-does anyone know if this is how I remove the top trim piece?
Thanks for looking, all of the warm welcoming, and any ideas that could be of consideration. Until next post, Cheers! P.S. Tonight it is Mission St. 2014 Anniversary Ale, 8.5% ABV

I think you are on the right track. Just keep in mind that these rigs were built by people who aren't exactly mental giants so the assembly methods are rudimentary at best.
