I'm planning on shaving the body to be the same angle on both sides, with a slightly smaller (by a few inches) door.
The approach angle on the vehicle will be slightly better too.
What are your thoughts on door mods like that?
I tried to understand you ("Look at the left side and you'll note the slope down from the front of the nose towards the wheel well. on the right side, it's squared off") but I probably did have enough sleep last night.... The best if you just mark one picture and post it....
I completely removed old staircase ( was rusty) and build new one. I changed entrance opening by adding angle on top, angle on right (window side), angle on left sides. I noticed the opening wasn't square but I made it square now.
I will build new aluminum entrance (flat) door instead of heavy by-fold monster. New door will be a manual open/close. I will add a window to make driving and turning easier....
Here are some more detailed door opening pics:
Right side notice silver angle:
Top, notice silver angle:
