We’ve received numerous messages from RV Repair Club members asking if it’s possible to turn around their RV door so that it swings inward rather than outward. The urge is understand, and while it is possible on some vehicles to flip the hinges and change the direction the door swings, RV maintenance expert Dave Solberg strongly recommends against doing this.

The reason is more rooted in legality than difficulty. Dave explains that fire codes in most states prevent having doors that swing inward, and talks about what could happen if you do decide to flip your RV door. So before you go pulling screws, heed this word of caution!
