Removing bathroom door/wall

We are considering taking the bathroom pocket door/wall out to enlarge the bathroom and dressing area in our 34'. We have an accordian petition just beyond the galley and a pocket door at the bedroom, so there will still be privacy when needed. I wondered if anyone else had done that.

A lot of trailers have a black tank vent pipe concealed in the corner of the inboard partition wall and the wall behind the toilet. No sure about your year model, but there has to be one somewhere in the bathroom area.

Out of Doors Mart, the local Airstream dealer, has said they can do it. Also, I've seen it done in a 30'. You remove the wall and door adjacent to the hallway, creating a bath and dressing room from the sink wall to the closets across the hall. You leave the wall separating the bedroom and bathroom as is. It makes the whole area so much more functional and open.

No door on 34 bath room

We have a 2001 34 ft that we bought four months ago. It has the configuration that you want. Before our first trip we contacted the factory about getting a door for the bathroom. However, after the first day of traveling we threw out the idea of putting a door on the bathroom. We love the room it gives us for toweling off, dressing etc. The accordian door to the galley and the sliding door to the bedroom give the privacy when necessary.

Those are our thoughts as well. The door is just confining and we would prefer the extra space.

Carefull what you remove. Airstream structure, inside skins, bulkheads AND partitions do contribute to the stuctural integrity of the coach.

I'm just planning on removing the door and the pocket the door slides into. I seen others done that way and it really makes the bath open up to the closets. I've checked with the Airstream dealer and has done several that way.

Wow, good timing

I just posted a thread on the removal of our twin beds in our 31 footer...after looking at your thread, I am really enthused over the idea of removing the wall/door as you indicated. I may have to remove a small section of the RS wardrobes and build in a pocket door or two-one at each end of the bath/wardrobe section. I really like the idea-let's see how much work it involves....
