Driver Side Emergeny Door floor plan

I poked around a bit, but 'emergency door' hit a bunch of topics that I wasn't looking for.

I have a drivers side emergency door right in the middle of my 30' bus. I was just curious how different people are incorporating (or not) into their floor plan.

I could see it being easy to just lock the door and treat it like a wall for some plans. You could also try to make it an alternate entrance, but that door is fairly narrow and short and on the traffic side, so even with a set of stairs, I don't see it being that much fun to use.

I suppose you could essentially hide it the bathroom, so you didn't have to see it, but could still climb over the commode to make an emergency exit if you had to.

Since I plan to use the back of the bus for motorcycle transport at least some of the time, I want to be fairly efficient in the rest of the bus' floorplan, so though I would ask for the group for some description or pictures of what they had done.

Our side door will be in the bathroom with the toilet one side and the shower on the other side. I will insulate and trim the door to make it look nice.
