Re: 87 Wayne Lifeguard international S1700 CXXVI

Just wondering, since you are installing one , what are the pros and cons to a "tub" versus "pan" for the shower? Obviously you can sit (somewhat) with the little tub, but is it worth building up the walls, and stepping over a tub? It seems a shower pan might be easier to get in and out and have more standing room, but a tub could be used for large pots and pans or washing off "stuff" as well? I have a tub like the one you have pictured (not installed yet, older used two piece shower) but I am considering going to just a pan. Any input would be appreciated. It seems to me most use tubs, but not sure why.

If you sink that into the floor you would have awesome headroom

i got this one because i figured i could save a foot of unusable wheel well hump space by extending the sit down part over it. that and it was available at the used RV parts store at the time.

I sank the bath in my bus. It required the addition of a second grey tank with a lift pump to deal with the floor drain.. It is nice to have 6'2" of clearance in the bath though.
