Ooooh! Great idea, Francesca! And Steve, you'd be able to stand up while showering.

What will you use to collect the grey water?

I think the dropped floor could easily double as a shower. I never considered that. It would be less convenient than a dedicated shower room, but would allow owners to retain the front area of the camper.

As for the feel of the camper - I can't really comment on that as we've not stayed in the camper without that wall, so I'm not sure. My gf and I seem to differ than most on the interiors. We like really dark colors and lights on dimmers to keep it dark - it seems most like their campers really bright and airy. We love to sleep in, and keeping the camper dark will work well for us.

Steve

that lay out is great, After seeing it and thinking about it, I believe it would work in mine, I just have to fiberglass two large windows in. But if I am glassing the bath two window should not be that much more. Now the the out side finish will be the challenge...... Maybe paint the whole trailer to hide the where there is no gel coat. I love to hear what anyone else can add to help me finish the outside of the trailer. Thanks Steve.

The horizontal blue line shows the bathroom wall I installed. The vertical blue line is the divider I will install. The scamp has a lower section in the middle between my toilet and refrigerator location, so that's where the shower drain will go. I also mounted the floor under the toilet slightly angled downward toward the shower drain (1/4" shim under the toilet floor) so the water would always drain to the lowest point. The toilet and shower area blue wall will get glassed so it's waterproof. I made the bathroom as large as possible by building the bathroom wall as close to the doorway entrance as possible, which also meets flush with the kitchen counter.

I believe the shower area measured 22" deep. I won't be able to stand in the shower (just under 6' clearance in there) so I'll have to take showers using the toilet as a seat. My GF will be able to stand in the shower area and have plenty of room to wash her hair - which the separate bathroom/shower area was something she insisted on - and I'm all for it!

Steve
