That would be my choice, too, as with them closed and without a fan operating inside the cupboard I just don't see much of an exchange of air through the vents.

I wanted the vents for the bathroom door (or door trimmed now as the case may be) because I find it so darn cool inthe bathroom-(I just want some of the furnace heat or living heat to get in there a bit)-we tend to camp in May and September and in the Pacific Wet Coast it can often be darn cool at night in the bathroom!!!

Karen's thoughts have made me recognize that I wasn't being skeptical enough about the vents on the cabinet doors. The idea needs testing. It is possible that convection will provide enough air circulation to help, or it may not, but gut feel says she's right.

I may add a couple of vents on the cabinet doors leading under the bed storage, but I won't go overboard adding vents to everything until I've tested things.

But, I think vents on the bathroom door do still make sense. We have both a window and a ceiling vent in there, one or both of which will be open at least a crack most of the time. With the ceiling vent in the main area of the trailer open and the fan on, a door vent will help circulate air in the bathroom.
