Default Entry door replacement?

The entry door hinge on my 1979 FC-33 is well worn and the door sags quite a bit. I know the door itself is not a standard RV size door. Is there any experience out there in replacing the door or the hinge system? Thanks.

Thanks for your quick reply, Randy. Yes, the hinge appears to be replacable. Lots of screws into both the door and the frame. Is the hinge on the 79 a common hinge?
