Citation Bathroom Doors

Hello, my wife and I attended dozens of RV shows and every Citation Sprinter that we went into had broken bathroom door stops. Well we bought one and sure enough the bathroom door stops are pulled out from the ceiling. We were told the solution was to fill the holes with epoxy and redrill for bigger screws. Donít fool yourself, they will only pull out with bigger holes to fill.
I was able to make two hardwood headers to secure the metal magnet stops to for the brackets in the center and the one backstop bracket in the hallway. The header for the backstop door spans the hallway entrance to the bedroom and the other goes wall to wall in the bathroom opening above the doors. I planned a piece of 1 X 3 oak to 1/2Ē thick so that it would fit above the doors like a header. I also routered it so it would be decorative. I secured it to the walls on each end with long screws through the walls and L brackets. This gave the metal brackets something solid to screw to. See photos.

Glad you made a fix... we havenít had any issues with our L-shaped bathroom door. Love the privacy space it gives you for a Class C... 32,000 miles and still rolling. If ours ever does have an issue, thanks for posting!
