some rv floorplans just don't have enough 'room' for everything, including sometimes the 'room' you might feel you need to enter the bathroom, though it may work just fine for the rest of us - our's is tight, too, but not impossible, if you really need to make use while traveling.
Our's was the opposite 'handle' issue - the lever type handle kept getting caught on our clothes anytime we would scoot past the bath door to the rear of the coach...switched it out with a 'regular' handle and it works much easier.
