It`s the habitation door not the cab door Bill. No good talking about what could have been done anyway. I just have to wait and hope it doesńt take too much longer.Yes he will change the door and frame it will come as a unit it is possible to make a mould using the parts on the opposite side if they are identical and just handed but its a lot of time and expensive

Thanks Dick, I had another email from them a short time ago.Hi Jan, hope you hear good news on your parts/van soon, was it RHD? If you don't and you need to buy local why not do your research on mobile.de? Just looked there are at the moment over 46K motorhome/campers on it. It’s got lots of filters to refine the search, you should at least be able to identify what makes/models available in Germany that would suit your needs. There is a toggle to have the site in English.
I'd be inclined to go down that route too Jan. It would certainly be easier than trying to source another, intermediate, MH. At this stage it seems there's very little chance of getting it 'properly' sorted for travel this year and as you've noted before, none of us is getting any younger. A year counts!Barry, Roger and Jürgen have all said just to get it tidied up and the gas going again and use it as it is, I think that's what Matthias is going to suggest as well and if he doesn´t I will.
I have no trouble with the insurance Barry, it´s still insured, not been taken off the road although if I had known it would take this long I would have done.That sounds like the best Idea. Suggest this to your insurance company. Get them to agree to the temporary repairs and also to agree to pay for the van to be properly repaired at a later stage perhaps later in the year when the parts eventually turn up.
I was just meaning that you need to make it clear to the insurance company that you have now been without a van for a year or whatever it is now so as they have been unable to carry out a repair would they be willing to authorise temporary repairs which presumably will be an additional cost to the final repairs once the parts arrived. You just need to make sure everyone is in agreement and knows what is happening.I have no trouble with the insurance Barry, it´s still insured, not been taken off the road although if I had known it would take this long I would have done.
