DOOR PROP SOLVES
“Many (most) caravans have a window
behind the entry door, which clashes with the
opened door. With the door hitched open, the
window cannot be opened – at least not fully,”
John Candy wrote to GoRV.
And, judging by the photos he sent us, he has
come up with a neat solution.
“I prop the door open with a longer steel rod.
The rod is held in place by three brackets. Two
are used to prop the door open. The third is
used to hold the rod while not in use.
“The brackets are cut from a single household
door hinge – cut into three ‘female’ sockets.
They are screwed and siliconed to the door and
side panel. I found a suitable stainless steel rod
in my shed – I just cut and bent it to size.
“To use the prop, simply open the van door, lift
the RH end of the rod from its socket and lock
it into the socket on the door. Simple. The
window can now be fully opened. The rod has
never been lost while travelling.”
