Took delivery of my new 36RE last week

Has anybody else noted that the bedroom door wasn't thought out too well?
Anyone made any changes?

Based on the models we looked at, we kind of assumed the queen had the hinge to the bathroom wall, and king to the W/D wall because it would block the aisle otherwise.

That was just our guess.

I think it is kind of a damned if they do and damned if they don't. A year or so ago, their were people complaining that they had to have the door closed to get to the washer because it was hinged to the W/D wall so I heard they changed it and hinged it to the bathroom wall side. This causes the getting around the bed issue when it is open. There's no way they are going to satisfy everyone.

We special ordered ours hinged to the washer dryer side. With the king bed option it only made sense. Sure, makes the access to WD a bit more cumbersome but at lease we have clean access to the bedroom without having to slip around the door.

I'm wondering if I remove the door and replace it with something less solid like a curtain if it would look cheap

In my 38GK, when the door is open, and you bring in the slide it hits the door. I've done it twice. ( I like to see the slide move in and I forget not to do that on this one.) I am thinking about removing the door.

Guess we live right, that is how ours came from the factory without any specific requests. I'm getting used to pulling out the wash and sliding it over to the dryer, then maneuvering through the door to access the dryer.

I love that landing up there with the frosted door, I would miss it if we took it off. One of the selling features for us.

Imagine what it'd do if the door was closed!

I've often wished the door on ours was mounted to the W/D side. I am constantly battling that door in the middle of the night.
