Dumb Question time

Dumb Question time

Postby BPACH [OP] » February 23rd 2021, 9:10pm

What are the different variations of rear doors? I see barn door and dutch door toosed about willy nilly. I am assuming the Dutch door is the 3 part type and barn door is 2 doors that open side to side, Is there another style?
I need to know the lingo so I can hang out with the cool kids.

Here's an example of Dutch Door, on my SurFari.

Aptly named after the Designer behind the configuration, Dutch Dooer.

Here's an example of Barn Door, on The Van.

Aptly named after the Designer behind the configuration, DouLiveina Barn.

Here is a White One - differing Angles...

A rare one - Barn Door with Pop Top, "Home Made" at that.


I have never seen "True" Dutch Doors or Barn Doors like these on anything besides Astros & Safaris.
And I might add, but then again.

And just to throw a bit of confision in. The dutch door is also called a lift gate.
