I did it that way so as to be able to put it back in the original configuration if I ever sell it. I wasn't too concerned about how it looked.
The lower trim piece really can't be trimmed. It will leave a gap to the outside hall area. It's purpose is solely to close off the bath from the hall when it is expanded.
The expanding door is about a the dumbest thing Airstream does-you would think they would improve it after all these years but hey, why improve anything when you don't have to? It adds maybe four inches-to the very back of the bath where you can't get to. Maybe if you have really large shoulders while you sit on the john where it may add an inch or two, but for me, it was just nothing more than a bother to deal with and rattled to boot.
Roadtrek, on the other hand, actually knows how to design an expanding bath door. It expands in the middle, not the end, and actually increases the room inside with usable space. They should take a look how it can be done correctly.

Anyone trim the piece that sticks out for clearance?
