    I like what you did with the shower pan & frame reconfiguration. Does the bottom of the shower pan sit lower to the ground that the underside of the lower floor? I am using a utility sink as a shower pan in the center cut out under the front bunk, fine for my wife but not enough head room for me so I thought about lowering it 2 to 3 inches below the floor either permanently or making the wood floor underneath removeable so when camping the shower/sink can be lowered for more head room and put on top of the removeable plywood floor when going down the road (just have to work out the drain configuration)

    Thr floor of the shower is a little higher than the bottom of the extended frame if you look at the frame pictures. I did not take the 6" frame depth all of the way forward so that that there would be a space for the plumbing/ The drain elbow will have to be lower and the black tank that came with the setup is a little lower than the frame so there may be some problem with clearance in some circumstances. I plan the weld in some skids to help protect the soft underbelly.
    Under the foam insulation the goes under the floor I plan to use a fiberglassed square of plywood for structure supported by some angle.
    I haven't done this yes, but it is coming soon.
    One change begets many!
    The center front offers more headroom than anywhere except in the middle of the floor!
    Connie is 6' and there is space for her standing in the shower. The old setup with the side bath there is no way for either of us to stand. This precipitated the modifications.
    There will have to be a pump to move the effluent back to the gray water tank either way. I have thought about installing one of these or the regular pump and have not decided yet.

    I would use this for sure if I could figure how the get the elevation since the shower floor is already low. If I could run the sink drain to it as well I would do that.
    The street side could be used, but the macerator pump for the black/gray system will go there (I think). More to work out.
