Iíve been buying doors from
Www.nicksbuilding.com for years.
Their prices are amazing and they do old fashion construction. Solid as hell.
Look at their site.
They have a lot of stock stuff but they do custom as well.
Iím going to have them build mine, I expect it to cost in the neighborhood of 1000-2000
You can get some absolutely stunning doors for 700-900 stock
1300 gets you a carved door.
So depends on materials and options

Anything you can draw they will make.
And VERY fair pricing.

Thanks, maybe I was not clear, but I am looking for a door to replace my front folding school bus door, I just want a plain white RV style door with a window in it. Made the size of the door opening nothing fancy

You'll probably be better off getting a standard RV door and making your opening fit. Also much cheaper. Or make your own door.

I flipped the forward piano hinge, then braced across the center folding spine, added a lock, and now it opens outward.

flawless and use it many times a day over last 2 years. didn't cost a penny

Tristate surplus $360 delivered, its a surplus site as the name states so there was a tiny dent the size of a dime but a hell of a deal compared to everywhere else I looked with a full Relight door.

That's the setup I'm going with! I love how you don't lose too much visibility.
I never understood how folks drive with a residential door stuck there.

If I were to do a door replacement, this would be a step in the right direction for me....a LARGE passenger side window for intersection that aren't 90*. Can be a beech making turns when you can't see properly out the window. My $.02
