One Door or Two?

Postby Steve Frederick » Mon Sep 06, 2010 5:47 pm

If you were buying/building a T/D, would you prefer one door or two?
I'm wondering how to build the latest project for re-sale.

Two doors for unparalled cross-ventilation, of course, sir.

There's nothing quite like sitting in the shade inside of a teardrop in the shade and with the breeze gently blowing through...

Two, so we don't have to disturb the other for middle of the night trips.

We tried one door, traditional for a grasshopper design, a royal pain when the other partner has to go to he bathroom :oops:
MM #1 had one door 6 through 7 have two based on our experience.

Steve...I stopped by American River RV the other day. A typical model 6K$ has 1 door, manufactured extra 440$ for the 2nd. Doors on the galley cabinets 175$...and comes with no mattress.

For me, I can't imagine one without 2. Gives the camper the opportunity to set up differently for the camping situation. My standy only has 1...but it's a different critter.

Your sides look awesome! Doug

I was originally only going to do 1 door and 1 large window, but Kerry talked me into having 2 doors. Glad he did... wouldn't want it any other way! Nothing beats sitting in the shade with both doors open, the roof opened up, and enjoying a nice breeze!

Let's assume you just had your door bashed in by a bear or blocked by some hooligan wishing to do you harm:
The second exit sure is nice, and either way, I'm coming out armed.
