Bi-Fold door needed

I have a 64GT that I am restoring. I am wondering if anyone has knowledge as to where I could get a bi-fold door for between the bath and living space. I will use a curtain, but would prefer a door as I have seen on others.

Thanks, Andrew

Accordian door

I purchased a vinyl accordian door at Menards for about $26.00.

It comes in a light tan (very close to original color for my 63 Tradewind) or a lioght grey.

You can get folding vinyl doors at most home-improvement stores, we have two in our house that we bought at Lowe's. I am assuming they will fit in the Airstreams, it is a simple install. Vary in price from $30-60 depending on quality. Lots of colors and styles.

If you are looking for a simple bi-fold door, you could easily construct one with some one-by stock from the lumberyard. Make a frame with a brace midway up. Rockler.com and most hardware stores sell a cheap pockethole jig you can use to easily and strongly attach the pieces together. Then skin with 1/4 or 1/8" oak plywood with glue and brads, and use a piano hinge and you're set to go. After getting materials could have a set in an hour or so of work. The airstream ones I took apart to copy had a honeycomb cardboard core to fill the dead space inside.

We bought one for our Argosy at Lowes but we did have to trim some off the bottom to get it to fit into the old supports and clear the carpet runner. It wasn't too hard and works perfectly.

Thanks, once I get closer to that part of the project, it will be in my blog. FYI, it is 64 GT Restoration on the main page Blogs, Andrew
