Take a pc of carpet and form it into a U shape long enough to have about 1-1-1/2" on the door and reaches the floor and up the 1-1-1/2" on the other side of the door. Cover the ends of carpet on the door with alum threshold moulding.

I had the cushion, it cost me nothing. Not fancy, just functional. I don't use it very often, store it in the shower or garage. Just many of the "little things" to make the ToyH a little better. I cannot leave things alone. Mods are something I enjoy doing. My wife just puts up with me. I made three mods this weekend. Nothing is offlimits. The F150, house, and portable fuel tank were modified. F150-phone charger and toyhauler rear camera power were rewired so no cig plugs are showing.
Wired the house for EU2000 gennies. Changed the fuel hose on my 14 gallon tank, the one that came with it had a weak hose (kinked all the time) and flimsy fuel handle. Used a ball valve and much stronger hose. I have two more mods scheduled. Convert tube rims on motorcycle to tubeless, wire Toy hauler for addition shore power hookup.

Under the door cushion, definitely what I am looking for. I think I can handle making that. Thanks for the tip.

I don't have them on my garage door at home. Dont need them.
Dont need or want them on the XLR bathroom door. I wanted something to slip under the door temporarily and is removable. When the rear door is up, blocking air flow under the door is not desirable on any level. Even these brushes will impede too much air flow. The heat and air was designed with the large under door gap for a very good reason.

The OP stated that she was worried about bugs. If you temp block the open area under the door for bugs, then take it away after the rear door is closed. Hate to tell you the bugs are still in the cargo area, and will find their way under the door sooner or later. As for the AC and Heat if you close the vent located on the AC unit it will use the duct work supplying ac to the cargo area. As for the Heat it has a vent in the cargo area automatically. if your concern is the exhaust fan in the bathroom you still have the opening under the door to the living room/kitchen.

You are absolutely right, I don't know what I was thinking.

Kind of a thread revival, but is the exhaust fan really needing that big of a gap? Many homes have small, enclosed toilet rooms in the master bath with a ceiling vent fan, and none have a 2-3 inch gap as is common at both the top and bottom of many TT bathroom doors. I would think 1/4 to 1/2 inch on either the top or bottom would be sufficient.

As for decreasing a gap (for garage odors or just plain old privacy), I'm thinking about just making a custom door. Lowes and Home Depot sell hollow core internal doors that could be cut and modified with a small amount of time & skill. I'd have to move a light for the top gap, but that looks pretty easy.
