Sagging door
3 Replies

I have a 1964 Aladdin trailer.  I have owned it since 1979.  The entry door seems strong but it seems to saga and rub the bottom outside corner of the frame.  Anyone ever dealt with a sagging door? …Continue

"Doors typically fail where they become out of square. Early ones are harder to fix in this regard if the pressed corner pieces or screws running the entire length like a piano hinge. I disassemble and use the sheet metal as a guide to re-square the…"

Sagging door

I have a 1964 Aladdin trailer.  I have owned it since 1979.  The entry door seems strong but it seems to saga and rub the bottom outside corner of the frame.  Anyone ever dealt with a sagging door?  I have loosened the four hinges on right side and lifted with a hydraulic jack using light pressure, then tightened the hinges very tightly.  Still wants to rub that far corner.  Any ideas?BobSee More

Tell us a little About Yourself
My wife and I have had our 1966 Aladdin Magic Carpet since 1979. We purchased it shortly after tent camping with our first child. He was 6 months old then. We used it for years with out 4 children then it sat for at least the last 15 yrs. along side our home. It was being used as a storage shed for our kids stuff when they moved back in from time to time. Just recently my two youngest asked what we were going to do with our Aladdin and I told them we were thinking of getting rid of it, they both were shocked and commented "Noooo, we have memories in that. So we took a second look at it and began fixing it up. Starting with a cleaning and then new putty around the windows etc... a lot of stuff we had let go. Now it is back ready for camping. My 4yr old grandson and I just spent the night in it last night. We had a great time. Loving it!!

Hi Bob,
My husband does not remember the name of the place we got the stainless steel back splash but they are in Beaverton and fabricate stainless steel items for restaurants. You might want to join the group on Facebook that is all about vintage trailers. Someone there might know of this place or others.
