Exactly. For us it just seems to be not that much of a privacy improvement. The solid walls for not reach the side walls. There is a good 3" gap that one can see in. We felt this made it less private. The answer of course if that you can have the shower curtain installed and this will block the line of sight through the gap. But if I need a curtain for all the gaps then why not just use a curtain?
Another concern is that we always keep the bedding on the folded down dinette. That is where we put three comforters, four rolled up sleeping bags, and four pillows. The storage of the bathroom door would have posed a problem. It just seemed like more of a hassle than anything.
I can also shave off a bit of weight by uninstalling the walls. It will essentially be turned into a cassette toilet which we were all comfortable with before.
I definitely hear you on the privacy thing. We have some friends who would never be able to use a toilet behind just a simple white curtain. We lock the camper up when the DW needs to shower. Kids can find something to do for 30mins to give her privacy.
I did like the mirror on the wall. That was a great idea. And the solid wall opens up the mind to lots of mods for extra storage.
