I did a similar mod to my bathroom door as well. Its in my 5er and the door used to swing towards the bedroom door that would block the bedroom door from opening and make it so that if you had to use it in the night you actually had to take two steps down to open the door before you could enter. Now it swing towards the living space. I flipped mine as well but flipped the frame as well so I didn't have to re-hinge it. I removed the door, then carefully pried the molding/frame off and flipped and reinstalled using slightly bigger brads.

Our 5er also did not have a power plug at the dinning table booth so added one so we can now sit there when working on our computers without having power cords across the floor.

As far as a clock, I always hope when I'm out rving, that time will stand still so never want to look at the time. But we have 4 little dogs that tell us when its time to get up, time to eat, time to go out, and time to go to bed.

We like having the door open because there is a sky lite and window in the bathroom and it just makes the trailer feel more open and brighter. .....
We had a bathroom door issue as well, ... in our Micro Lite 25KS, when the BR door is open we have view of the toilet full time, we didn't like that, ... when the door is closed the trailer seems smaller and confining, we didn't like that, .... DW stitched together a curtain to hang over that opening, can still close the door for privacy, ... not our best mod, but simple and effective, problem solved, ....

Our favorite mod is a 12vdc power plug (cigarette lighter for us old timers) we installed in the kitchen sink area. We plug an inverter into the 12vdc and then plug a crock pot into the 120vac inverter....put the crockpot in the sink so nothing slips and slides while we drive to our next destination. When we arrive....dinner's ready !!! And our motorhome smells great the entire drive !!!

250 watt crockpot, 12 gauge wire, 20 amp fuse.

X2. I've never seen that (and I've seen everything....I thought). I think it's going on my Christmas list....

My best mod

I shortened the height of the steps and added one more, from main area to bath and bedroom, on my 2019 wolf pack.
