Be aware that the 95 door is narrower by a few inches than the following production  years. You need a 1995 door.

95 and 96 are both 24" doors.  97 and up 26"

The 95 door is a unicorn.  They KNOW what it's worth if you have to have it.

Sellers market.  They need to pull it.  Box it and truck ship it.

Post some pictures of it.  Bear in mind there are people who can build you an exact P51 Mustang if you supply a data plate.  I'll show my aluminum TIG guy, see what he can do.

Is it a flat door with round corners and maybe a window? If it's like the one in the picture a high end sheet metal shop can built one easily.

Lower stress.  There are still craft people in the country.  With measurements and pictures. It can be built. Think of all the school bus conversions. Tiny houses on and on. Man made it! It can be made again. Its not that hard.

My bad. The new door assembly for my coach came from PTL, not PPL.
