Self tapping sheet metal screws?

Best of luck!

+1 on the rivets.
Maybe also use some adhesive behind it when you do.

Aluminum pop rivets….Should get you the thinnest heads I’d think. And if you’re going into metal on the camper they are strong.
look on Amazon and order a stainless hinge that is a bit thicker. They sell different gauge ones. That might work. It’s predrilled with countersunk holes. Small screws though but lots of them so It might work.

Yeah. I guess rivets make the most sense since the existing screw holes are somewhat too big now due to decades of different owners drilling and redrilling screws to accept any more screws. My non practical side wants to build a custom wood door and somehow mount my own jamb onto the trailer somehow but if I kept the original jamb ribs of the trailer I’d lose about 3” or horizontal space from an already small width jamb opening.
