Inside doors

Hey guys
I'm trying to see what people do for inside doors for the center of the bus. I'm not doing a roof raise so I wanted to see how the top of the door fits so there is no gap if you can but also were you won't have to duck for any frame. I have never built door frames so I don't know if what I'm asking is possible or not.

Why is it necessary to go all the way to the top, or bottom for that matter? Are you trying to seal a room off for some reason? Interior doors don't really need to do anything but block view, or rarely lock to keep someone out.

More of just the way I'd like the doors to be more than anything.

Here's our only door, a nylon strap is the curtain rod so no one (our size)bumps their head.



All walls are open at the top, no steam build up and good air flow. The toilet is right around the corner in the same room.

Lol, Your comment isn't at all helpful to the question at hand. What is asked of everyone is what kind of DOORS have people created or bought for room separation, not a table cloth, blanket or bed sheet. For example a door for your toilet, or for the master bedroom. Privacy and odor control are on most people's list's.

What I plan for my rig are pocket doors with a spring loaded latch to lock in place when either open or closed so they don't just slide back and forth when driving around corners or on hills. That's what I'm planing for but it may just end up being those accordion style RV doors, they're lite and super easy to install.

I M O any doors that roll or swing in a moving vehicle suck. i ripped a door off its hinges a few times in my T T. no matter what lock or foot i put on it. the bouncing and swaying will outsmart about any lock you put on them. im going with the accordion door.good luck

I installed dual sliding pocket doors here http://www.skoolie.net/forums/f10/bu...oor-14708.html

Since the walls aren't finished when I move, I just use a couple handy clamps on the top rail to keep them from sliding back & forth.

Interior doors.

Residential interior doors come in many dimensions. I used 2 closet doors, frames and all. only had to make them a little shorter. Even used residential door latches with sucess

Did mine a little different than others, trip hazard and head smasher. Oh well, bus 6 feet inside, I'm 6'-3" ....already ducking for other stuff what's one more thing. Tipped the homemade locks down a bit so they would vibrate locked instead of opening. All made from 3/4" plywood.
