Keep the door from banging?

We have a 22 Sport, front berth, rear bath. The bathroom door opens and the handle hits the closet door. How are y'all handling this? I was thinking of one of those little rubber circle thingies on the closet, but they're UG-LY.

I have the same trailer and the same issue. I happened to have some 3M felt pads, one of which is about 3" long and 3/8" wide. I put it on the door handle. They come in beige and are self stick and are about a 1/4 inch thick. Works great looks great too.

Not sure if you want to limit door travel or make it stay open, but this may work for you:

Everbilt 3 in. Satin Nickel Magnetic Doorstop with Catch-16096 at The Home Depot

When our 19-foot Bambi wasn't quite level, we had trouble with our bathroom door swinging closed when we wanted it to stay open; and this magnetic door stop was the perfect solution.

If you just want to prevent the doors banging together, this might work:

I'm going to defy convention and answer my own question. FOR NOW our answer is to take a piece of one of those Styrofoam pool noodles, cut a 1 1/2" slice (kind of looks like a bagel) and slide it on the doorknob for the bathroom. No more banging. Cheap fix (about 99c at the dollar store.) I'll come up with something more elegant later.

I had the Styrofoam pool noodle to address a different problem. I cut it down the center on one side, and double-sided taped the u-shaped remainder to the shelf in the storage locker/pantry right outside the bathroom--the one that almost knocked me out when I leaned in to measure it. (See "Bambi 1, Belbein 0.")

We have the 22 sport. 2013 small clear silicone bubbles on the br door handle. Almost invisible. Works like a charm Now i am trying to figure out storage. Lots of underbed but think i am overloading. Too much stuff. Lean and mean wanta be. Getting under the bed is a challenge. I do have a closet organizer but again too much stuff. Any words of wisdom??????
