Question Need a custom interior pantry door

I have been browsing the internet looking for a hollow pantry door 24" by 74" or 75". It's like looking for the holy grail. I cannot even find it custom made. Any ideas out there. This is for my 1997 travel trailer. So I am not looking to spend a weeks pay for it. Regards, John

What is the total thickness?

Consider a 24 in. hollow core door slab and cut one end to the correct dimension. You would need to make and install a filler strip to fill the hollow end.

What he said, easy to do. Before you cut the door, scribe the door with a utility knife on both sides at the cut line. This will minimize tearout. Use a sharp carbide blade. The top/bottom rails on those doors are only about 1 1/2" thick, so it will come off with the cut. Strip off the plywood and fit it into the cut on the door, with glue, clamps. And you have a cut down door.

If I remember correctly most mobile home doors are 76" in height although whenever I've replaced one, I've done as suggested above instead of looking for a MH parts dealer. I usually rip a 2x to replace the bottom strip, IMO that's easier than removing the veneer from the cut off piece of the door
