    Where can I find a replacement doorknob like this?

    Also, how can I replace one cabinet door? I don't think they sell them like that.

    For the lock your best bet is a trailer repair facility.

    For the cabinet door, contact the trailer mfg., you can look on-line, or take the door to a local cabinet shop, which may b e able to replicate it.

    Is there a way to put plywood in front of the cabinet where the door is and have it not look bad?

    Also, had a tub leak. Any idea how to patch all this floor?

    Also, I have a 6" x 6" hole in plywood floor in other part of trailer. It's in a corner with nothing to attach to on 2 sides. How do I patch that? I could get a picture tomorrow.

    Leave it open and when you advertise it for rent, put some small artificial flowers in the space, and if it's mentioned, tell them it's left open to display decorative glassware.

    What about the drawer in the bathroom?

    Any hrdw. vendor will have decorative vinyl trim for around the tub.

    The floor looks place-n-press tile so just clean it up and either add more or replace it all.

    You should cut the floor and find the joist for support and repair from their.

    There's no joists in the corner.

    I'm talking about replacing the bits of soggy plywood I had to rip out. It's next to a wall, so nothing to support it with.

    If I don't put something down here (red), I have nothing to stick the tile to.

    The floors and walls are supported somewhere.

    You'll need to crawl under there and find the support mechanism and work from there.

    Exactly, it's an amplification of the term "gopher".

    I also have to replace these decades old pieces of plastic that were on the outside of cabinet doors. Nothing at HD or Lowe's comes close to matching.

    What to do?

    Change all of them to the same new material, so nothing to match, but all the same.

    Yea. Problem is there's nothing dark tinted. These hid the contents of the cabinet. Nothing at HD or Lowe's will do that.

    Then do the same thing cabinet vendors have been doing for years, cut a piece of paneling and fit it into the recess in the doors.

    A piece of bead board might look good.

    Or wallpaper the insert. The variety is only limited by your imagination.
