Apply the FRP over marine ply, then caulk all the seams with urethane sealant.

I've used a 30x60 inch shower pan with the drain at one end. In a far corner I cut a 4" hole to pass a toilet flange through (RV flusher toilet; black tank mounted directly below). I'm thinking of having a shower curtain to close off the corner where the toilet sits during shower time so that the clothes, towel, and toilet paper can hang in that area and remain safe from splashes. I haven't figured out yet whether to seal the toilet pedestal to the shower pan, or to leave that unsealed and instead seal the hole to the outside of the toilet flange. Probably the former. Will also look for a floor mat, something along the lines of an anti-fatigue mat used in a kitchen, to help keep the feet dry when somebody enters to use the toilet before the pan has dried after an earlier shower. They seem to be formed so that water falls through the holes and can run below the mat to the drain.

For the enclosure around the whole thing I might go crazy and try fiberglassing something right there in place. Depends on whether I'm sick of glassing by the time I finish fixing/replacing the front and rear caps after the roof raise is completed!

I have lived in an RV full time for four years and it does NOT have a wet bath but I'm definitely planning one for my dream shortbus schoolie. Thinking about a rectangular 3x4 shower pan, galvanized metal walls, and cedar(reclaimed)slat insert to stand on and possibly secure the natures head to-checked with their website they are totally safe in a wet bath just have to add drain holes to the holding rack for the pee jug.

That being said, given the ten linear feet of living space my bus provides, I'd do the wet bath again. Jack

What is an S&S? I'm looking for bathroom ideas and curious what that meant. Thanks!

Hello all! I too will be putting in a "wet Bath." As a custom contractor I am able to use a lot of my subs to my advantage. My wet bath consists of a showerpan that covers the entire bath floor. I custom ordered my 28"x60" shower pan (that's the whole bathroom) with the drain located 14 inches from the left hand side (to clear the metal floor stringers under the wood floor). My shower guy was even able to make cultured marble sides for the shower so the pan and sides will match. I was even able to choose the depth of the pan. All for $400. a second whole could have been placed anywhere I wanted for a toilet drain but I am using a dry flush toilet so I don't need the additional hole. I would suggest looking to a local shower guy to get exactly what you need made to your exact measurements, its not as expensive as you think and you get a bus shower with the quality of a home shower.

Ps. I'm starting my actual build this week!! So excited, Ill post pics!

"Sticks and staples" -- a derisive (and deserved! ) term for traditional production RVs referring to their typical construction style.

You don't need anything that isn't in the Walmart camping Isle. Lets not over think this.

What exactly is the reason to have toilet in the shower. I have one on my boat like that and its just messy with shoes showering water etc. If your staying in your bus for long periods a big shower and toilet with lots of room around it is so nice. I found this picture and i like it a lot as long as water doesn't sneak around that shower curtain. Would be as nice with a shower door.

I don't want to think about what that cost him to build.

Though having that kind of space would be nice..... but when you have to fit an entire home into a 30 to 35 foot long by 7.5 foot wide space, you kinda have to give up luxuries like a spacious shower.

Of course this isn't news to anyone here....
