I bought a '95 Thor Dutchmen Class C

Not sure what I've got myself into, but it only has 35k miles on it. The inside is a bit rough so I'm working with a friend to deal with various interior issues. Going to tackle the generator this weekend and do a full service.

The entry door (radius corner) is a weird dimension - 26"x78" - is that right? It has seen better days and looks like it was busted open at some point. Every place I've called trying to find a replacement tells me 6-8 weeks to order a new door. There is 1 RV salvage yard in WA state - as far as I can tell - and they don't have anything close to that size.

Any suggestions for sources for parts are gladly welcomed!

Is it possible to install a roof rack without totally messing things up? The roof has been replaced/resealed so I don't want to ruin things, but I want to carry odd things like a canopy setup.

I'd also like to rig up some solar panels too!

You can drill holes in the roof but you need to take LOTS of care with sealing the holes. Eternabond tape is a good choice as well as Dicor.
