And I love my L5, but I'm still using it outdoors...
One of these days my shower will make it in the bus.
I'll be going with the porcelain on steel shower pan from Home Depot and poly-sealed red cedar walls.

Same thought here. Waiting for a usable pan to show up at HabitatForHumanity and then laying it down, wooden slats over the pan to stand on, and some type of Poly or Oil sealed cedar or the like for the wall.

A bit OT but I just found out what a PS WS costs. Ours had some stars but one has cracked about 9in long. My best price is $665 installed. Going to try to find someone who can repair, I have seen an 18" repair video.

Update, lots of lumber and wires









Removed the wheel chair lift; I had grand plans for motorcycles, climbing and a mini-garage or delicious kegs being hoisted with this herculean treasure alas, living space and open air are at too much of a premium in this caravan.

Of Note: lower it before disconnecting wires or bolts. OTHERWISE some are unable to be removed. Really fairly simple if done in this manner. Lifts right out. After removing I ran the main positive wire all the wire to under the drivers area and released it, rerouting from the isolator back to where I plan on having my main auxilary (household) 12v systems mounted. Tons of wire to spare too which is awesome as these thick guages aren't cheap. Great present. Also be very careful after removing the door failsafe buttons from the chairlift....if you attempt to rewire them ehhmm...and do so wrong a lot of smoke and heat will eminate from the wall immediately. Beware!

Back Porch

Also took the two bulwark esque half seats from the front and canabalized them. Cut all the foam and upholstery away and took the good metal to pieces with a cutoff wheel in hopes of reusing to create supports for the min-back porch, or at least an interim step. I'll post more of it when I mount it.

Lots of progress made on the front pullout couch/bed and the rear bed/storage platform. Should be done in rough form tomorrow. Then just searching out pallet or cool wood to scavenge and stain for the facade. Really making a hard push to get major accommodations done before I need to hit the road.
