Welcome to the forum.

Fastest way to replace that door is take measurements and check bi-fold doors at Lowes or Home Depot. Then use a little bit of SeaBee engineering to make your own. Probably be a lot cheaper.

In case the op hasn't actually seen one:
It's two piano hinges and a sheet of mdf and a couple of magnets on a 2018.

It's two hours of handyman type labor if it can't be a diy project.

Many of us will post dimensions if the op asks.

Bi-fold door Vegas 24.1

Thanks for the replies- - so fast, too! My thought was that many had removed that door - maybe someone still had it sitting around taking up space.
I, of course, have lived by the "Can Do" motto and I am usually the go-to guy when something has to be done.
I did look into pre-made doors but I would rather make my own if an original is not available. So, Yes, I would greatly appreciate those measurements. It looks like it would be very easy to do and I do need a project. Thanks for offering the help. I'll report back when it's done. Ed.

Ducksface; If you have the dimensions for the door , I would really appreciate the figures, especially if they have been tweaked to perfection. Thanks, Ed

I'll have to you hopefully before the end of this day.
I was hoping someone with the same year vehicle as yours would supply them due to maybe a difference in hall width or opening width.
I've read something about bifold doors having a design change at some year before mine.

(when we looked at new units Thor had changed the fridge to another design.
The bathroom door didn't work correctly because it hit the different fridges handles and wouldn't open far enough to hit the magnets.)

But
You said you're handy so interpreting my sizing to fit your coach will be easy enough for you.

In the mean time take a look through my signature thread.
It's mostly one hour mods for axis owners who can swing a hammer or turn a wrench.

We're you really a SeaBee?
I lived next to a former SeaBee during formative years as a child.
He was a big sway in the way I think. Not a smart guy by any stretch, but tenacious.

Two giant respects I have:
SeaBee and Corpsman.

Absolutely !! I'm giving away my age, but my time and locations were during the Cuban crisis, Bay of Pigs, and John F. Kennedy assassination. Lots happened then, but I must have timed it right- my battalion went to Viet Nam and I was Honorably Discharged. Those guys were the heroes that you read about.
