Default RV conversion parts sources?

What are some good companies to look into for sourcing parts for a conversion? Specifically, I am looking for exterior doors, window's/ trim, lighting. Lighting isn't a top priority at this point, but I am about ready to buy an exterior door, and google search isn't bringing up quite what I am looking for.
The specific side entry door I am looking for is a double door, but they are not full width doors. Together, they are a little wider than a stock.
Thanks for any insight.

If you are looking for entry doors like what is shown in the picture, I just ordered one last fall from Challenger door. E-mail Jason Helmuth: JRHelmuth@challengerdoor.com

He is very friendly and will get you setup. My French door was around $450 and freight was another $125. It was custom made to the size I wanted and all you have to do is bolt the frame in. I have also ordered storage compartment doors from them and they are pretty reasonable as well in the $50 to $100 range. I haven't ordered any single entry doors from them yet but I know they make them. If you are in the Elkhart area you can just pick them up and save some shipping money. The best place I have found to buy windows and single entry doors would be Bontragers Surplus Inc. They have anything and every thing you need. Windows have an incredible selection, around $50 each. Have to order trim rings for the fight wall thickness but those are readily available. Their entry doors are around $125. They also have lots of lights. Amazon also has lots of RV lights for sale.

Thanks for the information. I will definitely look them up. Did you install your French door? You said you just have to bolt the frame in...Did you just bolt the base to the existing floor and cut the side metal to fit? Sounds easy enough if that is the case.

Our trailer doors were damaged so I replaced what was there. The hole was already cut. But yes, you would just cut the rough opening in the wall to whatever size you would want. the door frame comes with the doors mounted. All you do is screw the frame into the wall of the trailer after your hole is cut. Pretty simple.
