Gemini cabinets

What have you guys come up with to fix or replace the cabinet doors in the Gemini. The ones in our coach are stripped out of the fiberboard doors which is a poor design to begin with. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

I replaced all the screws with #10x1/2 metal pan phillips from lowes, that seemed to do the trick for me.

Might be worth using SS bolts and thru bolt the hinges, that should prevent the MDF whole issues you are seeing, or put gorrilla glue and a part of a toothpick in the hole and then add the screw quickly so the glue does not set up. Then the hinge and screw should be stable for quite a while.

Thanks i read on here somewhere about the toggle bolts the wife isnít crazy about that idea. I think come spring i will try the gorilla glue and toothpick that may give me some time to build new doors for it.

I was not thinking of a toggle bolt, but a small machine screw with a nut and lock washer on the inside where it's not seen - good luck regardless of the solution you decicide to use.

Yep sorry that is what i meant to say, Iíve seen some nice ones at the hardware store but she isnít real keen on it. I believe the glue and toothpick should buy me some time.
