Replacing an Interior Bathroom Door

This probably sounds like a stupid question, but I am looking for a guide to help me install a hollow core interior door on the bathroom of my TT. The door is 1-3/8" thick & the door jamb is also around 1-3/8". I really don't want to screw this up and am looking for some help!

1) Is it even possible to put this door into this type of a door jamb, or do I need a different style/type of interior door?

2) What type of hinges do I use to get the door flush mounted?

3) Do I need special type(s) of door latch/knob hardware?

Any help would be greatfully appreciated. I am not too technically challenged, but know just enough to be dangerous!

.............I'm assuming your replacing an existing door. As for the type of hinge, it's called a piano hinge which runs the entire length of the door, hope this helps, good luck and travel safe.

Don't think I've ever seen an Interior door with a piano hinge. Go to a building supply store; they'll have all the answers and supplies you'll need. I assume you're buying just the door and not something pre-hung?
