Weight of pre-fab doors

Postby Doug87l98 » Mon Apr 02, 2018 3:08 pm

Hello,

My Son an I are in the planning stages of building a teardrop camper. We have to keep it as light as possible so he can pull it safely with his car. So I'm trying to calculate the weight of the build BEFORE building.
Does anybody know how much a prefab door weighs? That is one # that I'm unable to locate.

Give Frank a call: https://www.teardroptrailerparts.com/pricing.html

They are two pieces of double-strength glass with a couple of pounds of aluminum... I think twenty pounds would be close.

I just put a challenger that I haven't installed yet on my bathroom scale. It says 12 lbs. That doesn't include the inside trim ring or the drip rail for the top. I didn't have enough hands to balance all three on the scale.

Thanks for the information.

What size is the Challenger Door?

I was told 26"W x 36"T is a common size for their 805 series teardrop doors.

Nice to see my video is being used. 12 lbs sounds about right, though I haven't weighed them.
