Sliding bathroom door replacement

I have a 1972, 31' rear bath Soverign/Land Yacht with the double bed in the middle, that I hope to redo. I was wondering if I could take it out, and put in a sliding door, barn door style. (Hope the picture loads.) My grandma's house burned, and this is the only part of the house I was able to slavage, and I'd like to use it somewhere. Do you think it would work in the trailer? Thanks!

That's a great looking door! Our '76 has a sliding door for the bathroom but it is much shorter and not as wide. Yours might fit with a lot of modification.

Probably too tall to be used as door without cutting it but you could turn it on its side and use as wainscoting

Funny story. I just did this exact thing. Check out my blog in my signature, it's the most recent post. I built a headboard for it to slide behind, but I haven't gotten around to writing that post yet.

rear bath sliding door

It would look great but I know on my 82 excella - rear bath mid twins. You would have to modify the beds and the storage units under them to give the door room to slid.
