Maybe you could use one of these on demand propane water heaters with a tub. You'd need a water hookup.

If you take one whole cabinet for the tub... where are you going to put the freshwater tank? In my Scamp the freshwater tank is on one side of the dinette... the hotwater heater and converter... plus wiring is in the other....

Maybe you could just use the tub for the fresh water tank.

Wash thoroughly when done.

Cool I think that inside the trailer is too small

I think it's time to think outside the "box."

We had the small bath tub in a 24 foot stick built. With the 6 gallon water on propane and emptying it, you get maybe 6 inches of water in the tub because you basically need to run it on hot and not mixed with cold so you will need an on-demand water heater unless, you hang some of those black shower bags out each day and heat the water with the sun but they are heavy and I think ours are 5 gallons each, 40 lbs full! We needed the bath tub because our son did not like the shower. This works best in warmer temps as when the temps are cold, the condensation is unbearable. I have a book "Silver Palaces" and it has that bath tub in that little Airstream and it says the interior was 16' (a 19' trailer minus the hitch) and 7 feet wide. Are you just wanting to basically spray yourself with the water or are you hoping to "soak"? I know when we had the wet bath, that you could just sit on the toilet (tall husband had no choice) to bathe and just spray yourself, etc. I like the wet bath since some in our household are like ducks in water!

Go camping where there are hot springs.

I can not imagine wanting a tub in a trailer. I can't remember the last time I took a bath... maybe when the kid was an infant 25 years ago? I'm a shower person!

Some people can't imagine RVing in a 'lil fiberglass camper, either.

Different strokes.

Frederick,
That Cabela's inflatable spa is amazing. Perhaps you could package the whole thing as a "glamping" kit for tiny trailers.

When I found those links (The spa is available at WalMart as well) I thought to myself, "That would be just the thing to take to the Oregon Gathering in July."

We'd need Sharon to bring her Tiki Bar again...
O boy, we could get into some REAL trouble!
