Lightbulb Hoping to pick your BRAINS!!!

I have a 2007 29X. The bedroom "door" is nothing more than a cloth accordian folding door on an overhead track. I would lilke to put up something more private. furthermore, the latching mechanism does not keep the "door" closed. I don't want to modify the TT beyond repair and I would like the mod to be simple and tasteful. Any comments would be great!

I have the same set up in our trailer. I'm either going to frame in a door jam and add a door which would have glass panels in it like a french door, or use the bathroom door as a dual purpose door for the bedroom and bathroom. I could frame in a jam just where the open bath room door is square with the bedroom. There may be some pics on this or the RV.net site.

Its kinda hard to go with swinging doors due to tight spaces - has to be sliding, according, or folding panels type doors. I always thought the folding panel doors looked nice when all painted up to match your decor. Hard to beat a sliding door if you have an adjoining wall for it to slide on.

Sometimes a hanging tarp works great hehe...

I found a suitable replacement. I found a vinyl folding door at Lowe's. It is lightwieght and only 4 inches wide when open so it is not intrusive. The color is neutral so it works with the interior colors. I had to buy two doors and combine them to make a door the size of the opening, but it was pretty easy. The price was reasonable, too. It would be easy to put the old door back in if I decided the sell the TT. Thanks for your suggestions. Click image for larger version

bi-fold door

I took an idea from some one on this forum. I had these sitting in the garage and it fit perfect with no down sizing. helps keep the noise out and light out.

I bought a slide door track with rollers and hardware from Amazon and two narrow hollow core doors from Lowes. Added wood bracing to the top before installing the rail. Then added the doors and installed a wood apron on both sides to hide the hardware. Stained the wood to match the rest of trailer cabinets. Total cost was just under $200 and total time was about 2 hours to install (not including staining). Now the doors shut and the noise stays out. Also does a great job keeping the room cooler when the doors are shut. I added snaps to the doors to keep the doors in place while in transit.
