For some reason the back accordion folding door on my Barth was removed and I'd like to replace it. Any suggestions that would be a good fit and good quality?

I had the same problem, went to home depot they have them in several colors, I did need to cut the bottom off it was a bit to long, I strap it open with a piece of Velcro and use a magnetic clasp to hold it closed when needed.

I got a white one, should have got a brown one to match the paneling.

Good luck

Have you considered a "barn" type door or possibly building a pocket door ?

I don't want to take any more space than necessary, so a barn door will cut into my limited space walking around the corner with the door slid open. A pocket door takes away the interior space of the adjacent closet. The accordion type door seems to be the least space consuming. I wouldn't need it but I'm taking my mom with my wife on a camping trip to Pismo Coast Village this month and that will give some more privacy. If you haven't been there, it's a great spot in a sleepy old beach town, although it's grown a lot over the last 10 years. Highly recommend it!

We purchase an rv pleated shower door from eBay and cut it
at the bottom to fit the hight of our shower door minus about
2” inches to help the shower with the ventilation and we are very
Pleased with the results, not very expensive...
