A little different issue and different floorplan: We put a slit open tennis ball over the knob so it won't damage anything when/if it swings when on the road. We travel with our bathroom door open so we have easier access through the whole trailer with the slide in.

Adjust the latch plate so it is closer to the door.

X2 but I recommend propping it shut. Open on our 377 and may then hit the bedroom door!

Tennis ball on door knob is a brilliant idea...

I have 2 interior doors that never open unless we want them to. I installed a magnetic catch to hold it open in case the rig is not perfectly level.

If you'd like to keep the door open while traveling, I use one of these on my bathroom and bedroom doors...works great.
