I have an Autosleeper Pollensa, first registered in September 2000.

The toilet door was not properly closed and while driving it swung open quickly and broke into 2 sections along the edge of the recessed panel nearest the hinge.

The door is not stocked by Autosleepers and I would like to know of any suggestions where I could get one.
I have tried caravan breakers but the two I spoke to had none.

I would be grateful for any help.

Thanks

you'll see they are all being sold by breakers so there are some breakers you can contact.

Another place you might find some luck is IKEA or B & Q as often their kitchen doors are a similar construction and might actually be the same size. Perhaps measure the door and then look for a kitchen cabinet the same size and just buy the door. Just an idea.  confused3

Have you thought of repairing the original?

I have made many repairs to wooden items, including load-bearing shelves etc. and have found that proper wood glue (the white runny stuff) can actually be "stronger than the wood itself" as it says on the pack, given that you reassemble carefully, support the work properly and allow it to set fully.  If necessary, some strengthening struts (wood or metal plate) could be fixed on the inside of the door.

I'm about 500 miles away from our Pollensa at the moment so can't check the cabinetwork on the loo door but I'd be surprised if nothing could be done.

I would be almost certain that the door could be glued - hard to say for sure without seeing it.
Not sure that I would use the "white runny stuff" though I would prefer either epoxy or cascamite possibly with either dowels or biscuits (NOT ginger snaps! - the little wooden jobs of the same name) if you feel it is beyond your abilities then any cabinet maker could do it (or try a kitchen fitter).
