Apex Nano 191RBS bathroom door

Noticed I can't get into the bathroom with the slide in. Bathroom door is hinged on the left. But looking at Forest River's official floorplan it is hinged on the right, which should allow it to open. Is this a factory goof that I need to correct?

BTW, looking forward to others discussing this model. Bought it because it was light (3310) and my tow vehicle is a Ridgeline. Considered the 22QBS but the tiny slide with a couch instead of the 191 dinette just didn't work for my other half.

So far I've installed a backup WiFi camera on the back bumper ($60 from Amazon for the camera and WiFi transmitter) wired to the tailight.
Also bought a large industrial white plastic cutting board and jig-sawed it to fit in the double sink.

I don't have any specifics on your model, but my old 5er had the same problem with the bunk room door. I flipped it without any problems.

I watched a couple videos on youtube with dealers that had the 191RBS. All of them are hinged on the left. What if you left the door open before you retracted the slide? Would that give you enough clearance to get into the bathroom with the slide in?

Except for this 191RBS. This one seems to be mounted on the right. It looks like they changed it into the production run, but I wonder why?

That video proved the door could be either way from the manufacturer. Do they monitor these forums and wade in with advice, ever? I did the 30 min job to flip it around (vertically, door handle opens going up or down). I'll try that for a while and see how it works out.

I hear if you're freebeeing it overnight at the Walmarts that you can't put a slide out. Would suck not to be able to get into the bathroom.

Not entirely true. Opened at 2 different Walmarts. Just made sure we were way off to the side where no one came by and that when open, the slides did not stick outside the parking lines.
