Bathroom door on fifth wheel

Thinking we might remove it and put up a curtain instead or building a frame and putting frosted plexi in the frame.. has anyone done this? It is the first thing you see when you enter the scamper so I want it to be beautiful. Any other ideas or pics of what you have done?

I built a paneled door for our Scamp, using cherry for the rails and styles, and plywood for the panels. I considered using frosted plexiglass for the panels, but I had the cherry plywood, so it was cheaper.

Scamp replacement bath door

We don't have the 19' but the concept is the same on our 16'. The old MDF door split where all the screws go in, so I created a new door with oak frame (stained) and painted luan panels. I'm sure you could substitute frosted panels instead of the luan.
The new door is half the weight of the old door. We were able to hang the mirror back on and reused the old hardware (hinges and latch).
Not a perfect match, but better than what we had.

When I got my Scamp it didn't have a bathroom door. Didn't have a bathroom for that matter, only the shower pan. The sofa/bunk beds were not there either.
So I converted the area going to the loft into storage and put the Bathroom back together. I decided that a sliding door for the storage area would make it more useable and inorder to that the bathroom needed to slide also.
