Probably the best way of dealing with odors would be a door that fits without gaps, an opening window and the ceiling exhaust fan. But, as has been said, it's a small trailer.

That gap at the top and bottom happened after 2012 to allow heat and air to exchange with the bathroom. My 2012 Escape 19 had the first window in the bath but a full door. I had to vent the door to allow the air come in the bath window (it was an awning one also). Sometime later the door was made smaller as well as Escape started to insulate the entrance door because my 2012 was not. So things do change.

Ours does have a small gap at the top - very small.

Yes, the solid door means the bathroom gets quite cold when we're camping in a cold place. I don't worry about it - just freeze my buns off.

That is another reason to upgrade to a 21' Escape, the ability to mount a small electric heater under the bed that heats the bath, I'll miss that.....

We've got about an inch above and below the door. Not a heck of a lot of heat gets in the bathroom unless you leave the door open, seems more for the vent then for heat.

We didn't like that look when we bought our 2015 17B, it kind of made the door look like it shrunk from to much moister. So we asked them to make it full height, which they did.

We just leave the bathroom door open at night.
