Features of this access door
This access door is manufactured from high grade but lightweight aluminium making it corrosion resistant and perfect for coastal and marine environments. This feature also makes it ideal for use on boats to access all your storage. The access door or hatch is in white, whilst the frame is powder coated in black, ensuring that this access hatch complements the colour scheme of your recreational vehicle. The powder coating is long lasting and durable and keeps your access door looking as good as new for as long as possible.
The Caravan Access Door opens and closes on a full length aluminium piano hinge giving it a sturdy construction. Opening and closing the hatch is simple. All you need to do is to unlock the hatch with your key, press the pop-lock handle and the hatch opens immediately. Then you simply close the hatch, press the pop-lock handle back into place and then lock it with the key. The compression lock and pop-lock handle are ergonomically designed to make it quick and easy to open and close the access hatch. If you want a very large custom access door, we can install two of these compression locks to even out the load on the door.
This Caravan Access Door also comes with a weather seal around all four internal edges to ensure that all your storage items are kept safe and dry and free from dust or sand.

Why purchase a Dunn & Watson access door?
Caravans, RVs, trailers and boats don’t come with a lot of storage areas so if you can create additional storage space that’s a huge bonus for everyone. It makes travelling so much easier when you have the space to store lots of gear on the road or on the water. You might be surprised at the amount of additional space you can find hidden away in the walls that can be transformed into storage space. Our doors allow you to unlock this hidden treasure and keep all of your belongings safely tucked away but easily accessible.
You might already have a few storage spaces but need to update the access door, whether it’s damaged, not operating effectively or simply not looking its best anymore. One of our standard sizes is likely to fit the cut-out, so all you need to do is measure the existing door and match it to one of our standard sizes.
If you are creating new storage spaces from scratch, then you can either use one of our standard sizes for the cut-out or ask us to create a Caravan Access Door to your exact specifications. Creating additional storage space is a great way to maximise your storage space and get the most out of your recreational vehicle. It simply makes sense to use every millimetre of space that’s possible all around the exterior of your vehicle and then lock it all away to keep it safe and secure.
Dunn & Watson manufacture high quality products in Australia and we spend a lot of time testing them to make sure that they live up to our customer’s expectations. All the materials are also sourced in Australia and these access doors are made at our local factory in Brisbane. We are very proud of all of our products, because we know they are well-made and quality all the way!
Adding additional storage space to your recreational vehicle
When you purchase your recreational vehicle, whether that’s a caravan, RV, trailer or boat, you will likely notice at least one external access door. These are essential for accessing both waste and grey water containers, but you might also have other access doors for external storage. Some people don’t realise that you can create even more storage that can be accessed externally, which is where the Dunn & Watson Caravan Access Door comes into the picture.
If you aren’t into DIY projects yourself, you can take your recreational vehicle to a centre that specialises in services and repairs. They should be able to create this additional storage to your specifications and fit it with one of our Dunn & Watson access doors.

If one of our standard sizes is not the right fit for your space, we can manufacture a Caravan Access Door to your exact specifications. Just send us the required dimensions of the cut-out and we’ll have one of our doors shipped to you within a few days.
