Privacy please...

Hi. New to Forum and Forest River. Just bought a 2000 Wildwood 28FLSS last week. Needs some work. First order of business is to put up a door to the potty! Looks like there was something there, but can't say what...a pocket door? Have had experience with those. The trailer we had before had a "pocket" door to the bedroom that kept coming off the track while moving. Any ideas for a bathroom door only 20 1/4" inches wide? Maybe an alternative to a "pocket" door...? Thanks!

Accordion style with a magnetic latch? Just a thought. Don't know where you would even find one. Other thought is a heavy curtain maybe. Most RV doors aren't very "sound proof" anyway.

Thanks, Windrider. An accordion door may do the trick. Anyone have any idea where to find one...? Alternatively, what about a "regular" door? There is room to open outward to "hall" area. Can you buy a door 20 & 1/4" wide? I'll have to pass on the curtain, though that certainly is using the old noggin! Thanks!

I am building out my own 48 foot goose neck and came to finding a way to close the bathroom area. I went to Lowes as well as Home Depot. I got a folding door that is made out of vinyl and has a magnetic latching system. Works fine for us. After a year I did notice the fold is just starting to crack, but I expect that for any vinyl folding door. I had to disassemble the assembly and cut it to the length I wanted. A pain but got it done. Here is what it looks like closed.I did not get the cheapest one that was there and decided to spend a little more money or the higher cost one. Don't remember the cost but I am sure you can check out the stores.

Good Luck

Most all interior doors are hollow now. You could cut one down to fit but then have to glue an edge back into the hollow spaces. Doable if you have the tools.

WELCOME to the forum. call a local door shop and see what they can do. I've had to have a "special" door made before.

A few easy mods should do the trick.

Home Depot and Lowes will probably have what you are looking for. We have an accordian door on our bathroom in our stick house. Works great and easy to install. We got it at either HD or Lowes. They can also probably get a custom size door if you want to go with a wooden door. Stroll through and see what you can find.
