I make pretty much make everything myself so for me personally, no.  But in general I think you should make them available.  Tube doors are awesome!

I also think you should sell pre-fab bits like whatever you would use for the tube door latches.  I've always had a tough time with the latches...

I had in idea a while back for scissor tube doors that open/rotate up from the hinge so when you are to close to a rock or tree you can still open your door. You could have a little hatch strut that pushed it up.  It would bolt to the stock hinges with a flange and have an additional hinge at the top of the flange to rotate up on.

Love that idea!

Yeah I guess they would be tube lambo doors.  I hadn't really thought of that.  That sounds way more trick than "if you are to close to a tree or rock". Now I have to make them...

Where's the "No" choice? I may make my doors removable but wouldn't get tube doors. Now if you came out with a half door like Marlin's then I might think about those.

Amen, or a template/kit to make them.
