Slick Sliding Bathroom Door Lock

I'm surprised I haven't had a complaint on this yet... just a matter of time.

Does anyone have an idea for a lock on the sliding bathroom door that can still be unlocked from the main cabin in case of emergency?

We have some sliding doors in our house, called "pocket doors" by the builders, I believe, and they have a locking mechanism. You might be able to adapt one of them to your sliding bathroom door.

I looked into this when I bought the trailer in 2005. The doors in my Classic are too thin for the locks found in hardware stores. I thought of adding a thin overlay right where the lock mounts, but never got around to it.

I have a magnet embedded in the edge of one door and a steel plate in the other. This prevents the doors from being accidentally opened by bumping into them. Beyond that, we are adults and a closed door is deemed to be a locked door. No need for a lock.
