Congratulations on your new project. Replacing the door should be easy enough - catches and locks are available on ebay and the framed out door just requires careful measuring. The canvas shouldnt be too difficult but it may be worth investing in a good 2nd hand older sewing machine (new ones are too light weight to cope with canvas) Have you the old canvas for the template? If you have remember to allow for the seams etc when cutting (running flat seams need a generous seam allowance.)
remember lots of photos before and after and have fun.

I had some bad news on Tuesday, I booked the Monday and Tuesday off of work to sort out the chassis, Sunday afternoon lent it against my wall out the front and put a yellow cone out to mark the hitch was sticking out. Monday all of the prep work is complete, yeah. Tuesday morning ready for underseal coffee made, wait brush, BANG SCRAPE!! what the.... Look out window, nnnnoooo! Man stood scratching his head? Unlocked and opened the front door, 'sorry I clipped your trailer because I didn't clear the ice from my window', I assess the damage and note the legs are all bend and the bed and tent stays are twisted out of shape! Tent part no longer usable, his car is a mess as well.
On the hunt for another 'free to collect' trailer tent if anyone can help?
