I would say it weighs in at about 25 lbs or so. Which in the MBS's case does help.

Best thing ever did was remove it as it really opens up the bedroom and makes it easy to walk around the bed in the 24R.

Thats exactly what I was thinking. I really do not see ever closing the door and the extra room and the saving of the LBS would help a bit also.

What ever works !!!
If I were to remove the door I would take very good care of it,,, so if & when I wanted to sell the unit I could replace it !!! I just don't see the weight or the fact it sticks out a couple of inches being a problem !!! We have never closed ours,,, but I see it getting used,,, maybe if some one wanted to take a nap,,, or go to bed while someone else wanted to watch TV,,, or what ever !!!

I agree I would store it safely to reinstall at a later date. I am thinking of putting a couple nice double coat hooks on the wall as there is not really anywhere to hang a towel or jacket. Might put them on the other side of the bedroom entry door under the TV mount.

I mounted a 1x4 where the door had been. I stained it to look like the other woodwork and mounted it pretty solidly into the wall supports rather than the 1/4 inch wall material. I mounted a towel bar and two robe hooks on it...

Very nice. I may copy your idea only use smaller coat hooks.

I had previously installed smaller hooks in various locations...but found that things liked to fall off of them. So I went with the larger hooks this time.

I used a couple of fairly large Command Hooks,,, on the other side under where the TV would mount !!! They hold up real well !!! Our Menards has a HUGE display of Commend stuff !!!

I drove screws, at 45 degree angles, at both ends of the board. The screws were angled toward the outside so they screwed into the same corner supports that the thin wall material is stapled into. (Definition of an RV? "Sticks and Staples"!)
