Aren't most RV walls today constructed with aluminum (sp) studs and joists? If so, then will a stud finder work?

You don't even have to put the doors in the wall. My Cherokee had 2 sliding doors leading into the bedroom. They we're mounted on a sliding track inside the bedroom. There was a small track on the floor on each side of the door to keep them from swinging. Each door had a strap to hold them open during travel. Just a thought.

Seriously considering removing ours and replacing with a curtain. To us, it is useless and a PITA to use.

We have two of the sliding doors in our unit and one "normal" door into the bathroom. It's always in the way so I have been thinking about changing the "normal" door into a sliding door.
Please keep us updated on your progress, I might take up this mod...

I wouldnt be building a wall. Finding the studs would just be for the ceiling to mount the track. The doors slide between the bed and the entertainment center

Not sure if I said why I wanted to do this...kinda funny actually. We have good friends of ours that occassionally camp with us and sleep in our camper. Well....he SNORES like a freight train! I figured i'd try putting doors on to block a little noise...next step i'm suggesting they buy their own camper! lol...

My issue is in the hot times. I dont have ducted AC so I may have to leave a door open or find a way to cool off the room.
