I replaced mine with a Larsen Security Door which I was able to get in a 32" wide application which fit my door opening perfectly. It hasn't been road tested yet, but with a triple locking mechanism and the windshield style stafety glass I'm gussing it'll do just fine...and lots of glass to see out of too!!

You can look at the install HERE

I installed a 32x80 Emco entry door from Home Depot. Perfect fit in my 88 Blue Bird. I have added a keyed locked to it (made for that type of door) and extra latches on the top and bottom of the door. The latches were needed because of the strong suction that would pull on the door while driving. Overall works great. Even can open the window for extra airflow while driving. I can take pictures of the extra latches I used if anyone is interested (took me awhile to find something that worked)
