Unhappy Bedroom door

Ok.. its three years living full time in our Class A and most of its great.. all but one really really stupid thing.. When they put this bus together they only put a door on the bedroom that is 3/4 the size of the door frame.. they left the door about 8 inches off the floor so there is a big gap.. Now normally that wouldn't matter except I have a major pain living with me.. My three year old cat who seems to think that whining at the top of her voice for food at 4-5 am every day is a good thing... or if we don't "get up" that jumping on us is just as good and I am sooo done with this.. See my last cats were taught early on that getting me up that early for their breakfast was a no go but my husband has spoiled them so now they think its ok .. and its great for him because he is usually up at 5 am anyways except on days he wants to sleep in.. which leaves me with the problem of how can I fix my bedroom door . With the gap at the bottom of course my cat can climb under it easily.. Soo... Any ideas.. We aren't handy people when it comes to fixing things and we don't have tools.. this is our full time home and there just isn't a place to carry everything in the compartments. The door is on a long brass strip attached to the wall so its not even an ordinary fitting like in a house.. I just can't seem to think of anything that would block the bottom of the door (without replacing it and then having he hassle of rehanging it )and make it as sound proof as the door is .. so frustrated... any advice would be greatly appreciated.. thanks in advance...

Is it a sliding door or does it swing open like a regular door?

You could attach a stiff piece of carpet or plastic runner to the bottom.

Our bedroom pocket door goes within an inch or so of the floor, but the bathroom pocket door is like you describe. It's a pass through bath. I've looked at re-engineering the door, but it'd be a royal PITA to do it. The only reason I can think of to build it that way would be for ventilation of some sort. Our dachshunds go right under it like its not even there.

I think the space below the door is to let air into the room. With the roof vent fan running it needs that air. Without that air input the fan can draw from the sink drain and gray tank smell can enter the room.

Yep, air flow is the reason. And we've gotten used to our seven cats running over us.

Replacing the cat seems like the easiest option.


A more practical option would be to hang a piece of carpet from the bottom of the door. Using screws and washers to affix the carpet to the door should be fairly simple.


Something that you may consider is attaching command hooks to the bottom of the door, cutting holes in the carpet and then hanging from the command hooks.

but a baby gate and put it up on your side of the door the cat can't come in. you will still hear the cat but it cant come in your room and you still get airflow. personally I would not have a cat in an RV because of need for litter box.

Daughter in law had a couple cats when they got married. One of the cats would hurl itself against the door until the food was put out. The cat was not replaced when it finally went to kitty heaven.
