Alternative to interior folding door?

Curious - my Rockwood 5th wheel came with a very light-weight folding partition between the bedroom and stairs/main cabin. It would have been nice if the entrance to the bedroom had something more solid, like the hanging slider in the bathroom (or maybe a "real" door!) -

Does anyone have any ideas or experience in replacing this with something else?

Hanging slider would be easy upgrade... If you have space for it to open into.

I don't, it's a curved wall so there's no clearance for a solid, sliding door...

It could be framed and a interior door installed. It could be hinged to open into the room and wouldn't interfere with the wardrobe slide if you have one.

And, I guess your bedroom TV is on the outside wall right in way, like mine.

it's on the other side of bathroom door, I'm referring to the folding door that closes off the steps down to living area. it's too bad the bathroom door can't act as a "two way" door - it's close, and in the right spot, and open out, but they didn't make it big enough...

I wonder if this would be a feasible upgrade (custom wood bi-fold door)
