We did ours with the door on. EasyPeasy. The biggest tip is to have a shop vac handy, preferably with a helper running it while you cut.. there will be styrofoam bits everywhere.



Signature removed, so as not to trigger any non Ford owners, non Irish Setter owners, current R-Pod owners, unhandy or mod negative Pod owners, or single campers of any gender.

That hole looks familiar, except that I had already removed all the loopy decals.  It's nice to have a window in the door.  You can see if there are any bears outside before lumbering off to the campground head at night.

I think a pain to remove and replace, I vote cut in place, like I did the slideout window on my 2017 179.
