following your advice we decided to go ahead and get that tape off and yes, it was a drag. Janelle spent hours removing every last trace of blue tape and applied a nice stain after sanding it smooth, will post updated pics tomorrow.

lol, Janelle and Charley are 5 and an a half, I'm 6' 3" so the finished product will leave me vertically challenged (stool in the shower) but there's a lot more room than a tent

Nice and neat! I'm glad you clarified the one piece of foam ziptied in. I already was staring at it, trying to figure out what it was, lol

just before falling asleep last night I realized I could have gained 1 1/2 inches in headroom in my shower if I'd have cut the plywood and insulation out before installing the pan duh. of course that would have made for a very cold shower floor, I could have insulated that particular spot from underneath. This led me to lay awake for the next three hours trying to figure out how I could still pull it off. Nope, too much glue. Not unless I want to start from scratch on the shower walls. That ain't happening. gotta laugh. It'll be a stool in the shower like I said before. Add this one to the list of "what I would have done different".

Re: Our Bus, Our Home

Put in a "sky-light" above the shower..... maybe a bubble type that would gain you as much as you need and still be somewhat aero-dynamic. If you do it right it might look pretty cool too!

Re: Our Bus, Our Home

I think that the skylight idea is awesome. It is usually dark inside the shower. A skylight would take care of that, well at least in the daylight.
