I've seen some covers that operate the way you describe, but I don't recall how they were made. Seems like some were off the shelf, and some were homemade. I think the secret is in the latch, not in the hinge, but it depends on the design. Some car gasoline hatch covers operate the way you describe.

A little different, but my 172 has a flush button that you push to open the hatch. Seems like we discussed this several years ago. Did you search the archives?

P.S. After I posted, I read your signature line. With your resume of RV building experience, you should be able to just tell us how to make or where to buy one!
