Looking for a door for my 1989 Blue Bird Charleston SC

Hello,

I am new to Skoolie forums. So I am looking for a bi-fold door for my 1989 Blue Bird. Right now it does not have any front door.I live in Charleston SC and would be greatly appreciate any help on locating a door.

I am aware of Wades graveyard in Georgia but it's 5 hrs away. I haven't been able to confirm they are open. Has anyone been there recently?

I spoke to a Blue Bird dealer and I was told it would cost around $1500 for a new door in parts.

Thanks again and excited to learn.

Shipping rates are gonna be a son of a gun!
I pulled mine, flipped the piano hinges, and remounted it to make a solid outward opening door..... IT TOOK TWO PEOPLE TO MANHANDLE!

Best of luck in your search, but you'll probably want to stay local.
Our school had several buses that were too worn out to sell at auction, so they scrapped them. (Had a scrap yard pick them up)

Definitely trying to stay local. Unfortunately our bus is a great bus but they did not have the door. So considering an Rv door. But really wanted what you are talking about! thanks for the reply.

Door update

So with having very little time left we needed a door. So we went the RV door route. Our friend John new someone that had an Rv they were parting out. The door was almost perfect. We tried the top and framed it in. Needs some adjustments but the husband and I are thrilled.
