Custom bedroom door

Hello

My bedroom only has a curtain. Has anyone installed their own door to replace the curtain and add privacy?

The doorway does not have a header. The curtain track is mounted on the ceiling.

Not all RV doors have headers. But with that said, if you are handy with tools and have access to a power saw, this is a fairly easy mod, including adding a header. You just have to be careful that screws don't penetrate where they shouldn't. A Home Depot, etc., folding door might work well, painted or stained to match the interior.

My brother-in-law added a accordion style door he bought at an RV dealer. Just use the same location of the curtain rail.


Not as good as a wood door but better than a curtain. Wireman

At Home Depot you can get a framed fire door. Just kidding. If you just have a good solid side frame you really don't need a header for a light door.

I had one of those annoying according doors from bath to bedroom in my 2008 Keystone Springdale. Very noisy. I got a 24" pre-hung 2 panel interior hollow core door at Home Depot and put it in. I also changed out the bath to living area door with the same door but just the door, not a pre-hung unit. Pretty simple and straightforward job if you are handy with tools. I also did not have a header. But my trailer interior height is such that not much of a header was needed. Why in the world the factory didn't do this is beyond me. Cheap job and made a world of difference. Most all door come with the door knob holes already drilled out so you will end up with a short door knob, but that is no big issue.

BTW, if you go with a pre-hung door you figure your header thickness by what ever trim piece you will use. I actually got a standard door trim kit and just cut the top, header, piece down a bit so I could have plenty of head room walking through. IIRC my total header thickness ended up being about 1".

we have a built-in pocket door. You could possibly consider that.

Our local Home Depot has/had several folding doors on the sale cart yesterday - they may be changing distributors or brand names.

That pocket door mentioned above is nice but it would take a lot more work to cut into the partition to add (our 5er has one as well)

Ours was the same way in our jayco. This is what we did it works great. We already had the door left over from some remodeling, it fit perfect. Just got the hardware from lowes. It took me about an hour to do it.
