To me, this trailers integrity (bones) would be in question, Two very large accesses have been cut into the structure. I would think this could be an issue. The back door thingy is not as much of a concern as the huge, moon roof. And I feel both even if done professionally are potential problems waiting to happen.

And for the asking price you could find a much newer one without holes in it!

Ok, after looking at the pictures again and again, What? a shower was added to the middle of the 13 ft trailer? So yet another hole? Shower drainage? This thing looks like a night mare waiting to happen.

We've seen this trailer before for sale. I'd really, really like to see a better picture of the back door area. It appears some sort of framework was build into the opening. Maybe to strength the entire area?

Yes Robin, we've have members that have added showers to 13 foot trailers. I have links to two setups and pictures at YahooScampers. Plus, there are those that have setup portable showers inside the trailer. The curtain hangs from the ceiling in a loop and a person stands in a bucket or tub. It's a temporary setup... in that it has to be put up and taken down after each use. But with this setup there's no plumbing or drain hole.

Donna, Thanks for the info, I have heard of people putting shower stalls in their trailers, but I guess I assumed they did it in the closet area of their trailers. Not in the middle of the 13 ft'er. . And have even suggested the portable shower idea to people, but never would have ventured to add a shower in the middle of the trailer. But because of the explanation from the seller I am assuming there has to be a place for that shower water to go, hence my assumption of a shower drain. Still question all the egress's. Sorry I just can't wrap my head around this one!

This trailer was also on eBay a while back - sometime this past summer, I think. There were quite a few photos with the listing at that time. (It didn't sell in the auction I was watching.)

Yes, a built-in shower stall in the middle of the trailer.
"Has a unique and roomy shower (44"x44"), shower area is under skylight dome, height is 77" with skylight closed, there is unlimited head room when fully propped open, equipped with three connected shower curtains that are suspended from a ceiling rail system around skylight opening, the shower curtains pull around to fully enclose you while bathing (shower curtains slide on rail and store away while still attached, [b]the shower area floor is waterproof with durable rubber material and a drain is connected to hose bib style connector outside, shower floor is concealed with fitted carpet piece when not in use; simply remove carpet to expose center shower stall, pull curtains around you, flip water pump switch up, and you have a tall roomy hot shower, shower is always concealed until needed, hot water to 3 position shower-head is supplied by a new auto-ignition tank-less propane fired water heater for endless hot showers"
