23WS Closet Mod

We added adjustable shelves and flipped the left door so it opens toward the kitchen to use as a pantry. Each family member has a basket for their clothes. I'll either remove a shelf to add a hamper, or we'll just shove the dirty clothes in a bag in the lower openings. It's so much more useful than the big opening and rod--who wants to hang clothes up when they're camping?!

Nice, we hung closet organizers there.
Hum, the main door to the wardrobe hallway, it seems to be hung differently than ours??? Ours is hinged on the left where you seem to have your strike plate. and our strike plate is on the right (next to the bath door). If opened wide enough, the door would hit the fridge.
Is yours hinged next to the bathroom door?
(Guess that is why others had no issue with the door but I did).

When shopping for ours, I saw a combo of doors hung on the right and left. I'm guessing they had a hard time deciding which was the lesser of the two evils. Ours is hinged by the bathroom so the two doors bang together all the time. It's especially a nuisance if you're on a very uneven campsite (like us last weekend!). But the way ours swings does make it easy to use the left side as a pantry.

Yeah, we took the door down and hung a curtain.

We talked about it my DW and I and came to the conclusion that a curtain ain't for us.....for two reasons:

1- There's just the two of us
2- The door makes the camper more stylish (my opinion)

Don't blame you if you have kids to install curtains!

Agreed about the stylish part. It's also a good sound barrier. I thought that was the master bedroom, but we'll be giving it to the kids so we can get up early without waking them. And hour or two of peace and quiet is worth it!

It does look nice with the door. But the way the door swings, we had to climb over the counter that juts out from under the TV to get to the wardrobe with the slide in. For us older folks that was a bit of an issue. Though we could still get to the fridge and bathroom with the slide in. We will rehang the door if we ever want to.

I think you would have to jump over the counter weather the door is on the left or right. Our door opens toward the fridge, and I can't get to the rear bedroom (I'm 130lbs)

BTW.........We are stealing the OP's original post..........Sorry!!!
