    Ok brainstorming hat on:
    1. Saw off the metal lip at the top of the door and replace wood in door with taller piece. Be sure to make smooth edges around door corners because we just never know what he could do back there.
    2. Add a small metal piece with wood with new hinges and new lock on the opposite side. Like a mini door.
    3. Fabricate taller door, all one piece. No new hinges required and it would probably look neater.

    I think any half decent welding shop could do the last 2 options.

    Thank you! THat is a great brainstorming hat you own. I am so out of my element. At one time I thought I was one of those mechanically handy women. I've added new sinks and bath cabinets, refinished cabinets, changed my furnace control, dropped in a new electrical outlet.

    Sort of house handy, you know?

    But, yea. Totally out of my element when someone says: you can fabricate a new door for the back of the trailer. You might as well be asking me to build an iridium energy source.

    You may not be able to do the door yourself, requires metal bending tools, possibly a torch and welding stuff, but a welder's shop could have it done in a day.
