A Question for ALL Members and non Members

This is a public forum for the discussion of all things Eagle. Whether it be an upcoming Eagles International event or the history of Silver Eagle. Trolling or spamming will not be tolerated.


I LOVE MY PANTOGRAPH DOORS!!! Sorry Paul, I just had to do it. That is one of the changes I wanted to make on the 10 before I found this 20.

Obviously I haven't seen the ones on the 25 but mine are very similar to how they sound. They are very light. They go up above the bay area when opened. They do swing out a little on the arc to open, but not a lot. They tuck back in nicely up along side the bus. I think I would be less likely to hit my head on them than I would on hinged Eagle doors. And I know I am less likely to pinch a finger off!

My doors do have a little 'lock' that flips into place to hold them in the up position. It is not the long rod like I have seen on other style doors. It is just a little piece of flat iron about 4 inches long that pivots into a slot when the door is up. It is mission on a few of my doors but it is no problem because the gas struts hold them up fine anyway.

Paul I have cafe doors on my 05 they are OK. I am putting panograph doors on my 15. They are Eagle doors I was able to get a new set with all the hardware.
I am going to get 6 more from a friend that took them off his because he is adding slideouts. When I get them I will see what kind of shape they are in. If I sell them I will just charge what they cost me. Not shure about getting rid of them as I like to have spares around. I have seen Sonnies they work as good as the Eagle ones he did a nice job.

Steve I came up with a way to have hidden hinges. I will poat some pictures When I learn how

AAAARRRRRRGGGGGGG I thought I had this picture posting down. Dale if you see this, can you copy the hinge picture I put up on my blog and put it in this post? I have fooled with it for an hour and a half and now I think I will just go back to the shop and work out some frustrations. :oops: Thanks

Bob, Do you have any pictures of how you reworked the hold up fixture on your 01 doors? My bay doors are not too bad, just darn heavy! ;) I really like your idea. My doors swing up and at full extension the top of the door hits the upper attachment. I opened mine all the way last night and really can't see the benefit on moving the bracket. I must be missing something, I usuall am! :lol:

Pantograph would be a nice feature, but with the way I'm going I better just kick that idea out of my head. :roll:
