sliding door in fr3 motor home

Sliding door between bath and kitchen in hallway- would like to close this door off as to help cool area with indash ac only in the summer- any ideas how to fix a latching system that looks good and works to hold the door closed?

Not sure of the part # StephanFR3. I have a 2015 bought in May manufactured in April. Perhaps ForestRiver could be of some help with this. It looks like a pretty standard piece of hardware for a pocket door which could be found at any Home Depot or Lowes.

One thing you might want to consider is to hang a thick blanket down from the forward bunk. This will help to keep the ac from blowing into the kitchen area. We use two so my wife is able to exit to the kitchen if need be. Yes, it's a pain, but it works.
If you don't want to do this, consider running the coach ac while driving. Yes, you'll need to run the generator while doing this.

We have the 25 that does not have a door to isolate the bedroom so I added a wood closet rod and a large heavy drape that looks like factory original. Stained the wood to match and it gives you privacy and darkness where needed.

For the front we have used the blanket hanging from the top bunk for both heat and cold and it works real well. The cab heater is not much good when it is 20 degrees outside!

Amazing to me that these alike models have such different hardware. Also mine has no way to lock or latch from the inside. Just the ability to latch open for driving.
