Not so private bathroom

Decision being made to go non standard, what to do about a not so pleasant toilet view. The PO installed an air conditioner right where the hard curtain goes across to enclose the bathroom. So hunting for ideas, has anyone done a cool modification the enclose this area?

My thoughts at first are to build in a solid bulkhead and install a nice wood door like I have on two of my previous boats. Ideas?

Why not install a nice piece of wood an inch or two below the air conditioner from cabinet to cabinet, and attach a curtain track to that. That way you can pull a curtain across, but still access the ac unit. Installing with screws would make servicing the unit easy by removing that piece. You can see that done here on a 69 (which may be factory I don't know) on vintage airstream's archives:

Scott,

That's a pretty good solution. Whatever I do I will have to keep in mind the AC access.

Goransons idea is spot on. The bedroom divider on our 76 is mounted slightly below the ceiling too. As for AC access you could make the wooden bar removable with screws or quick connect brackets. I've seen some suitable type brackets at McMaster-Carr's website.

At hospitals they have a mesh part at the top of their curtains. I doubt the shower would reach the top foot.
