Re: Transmogrifie and Me

Funny how diferent our views can be. I've had several shower/potties over the years and I just wiped them down after each shower--big deal. I use an industrial type shower curtain in my shower at home because it works better than a glass shower door at keeping the floor dry and it cleans up good in the wash. I also wipe down the shower in my home after each use as it keeps things looking good and keeps mold at bay. I'll be using a combo again in my '35 because it is a space saver--and much more pleasurable to use than some rented NASTY communal bath. Each to his own I guess. Jack

Re: Transmogrifie and Me

I think too it depends on if it's one person or not. I am a short person, (so I wouldn't have to stick my feet out the door to put my socks on). I would be the only one taking a shower or going to the bathroom. Although if my cat had his way we would have double sinks in the morning. And it seems to me that I have the issues of wet socks in the morning even in my big bathroom.

Any suggestions where to find one Jack? And your bus is even smaller too.

I think this guy's looks really neat but I'm not that talented. http://gmc.dwinchester.com/Wet_Bath_...onversion.html

Well, with a all-n-one wet bath, you can always say that you pee in your shower!

Re: Transmogrifie and Me

Shadol, WOW! that is a really impressive bath! I'd be hard pressed to come up with something like that. I pulled the combo unit I'll be using out of a dead 5er I was given. After some cutting and pasting of its fiberglass I'll have just what I need in about 4 square feet of floor space. You might want to try to find a fiberglass combo unit in the junk yard. Fiberglass is EASY to work with and the learning curve ain't all that steep. As for peeing in the shower--I don't know. Ha! Jack

Wish me luck. I know I have to 'travel' about 90 miles to get to a real RV surplus/recycle place. Or maybe I'll call around first. The local one here I am going to make an appointment with but I don't think he has much at all. Much less anything that I'd want.

Re: Transmogrifie and Me

In my case, space available dictates a combination toilet/shower. Simply no room (inside, anyway) for two separate units. And I have to say...I'm not looking forward to that part of the build. It will require custom construction of preferably a one-piece unit. Would be simpler to do in pieces but water leak paranoia has me at least hoping for a one piece fiberglass product. Will likely have to build a form to lay the whole thing up in and may or may not leave the plywood in place. To make matters worse (more interesting?)...it will have to sit atop the driver-side rear wheel well further complicating the shape (yes...you will only be able to take a "sit-down shower"). Times like these make me almost wish for a slightly bigger bus. And since I have zero experience with fiberglass beyond small patching jobs, I am looking for some local expertise. Not much luck so far. The few people I've spoken with who have the skills are in the boat business and real busy with better paying work. It will also require a final finish of sprayed on gel coat. Yet another process beyond my means & skills.

Oh well..."life is for learning"...at least according to CSN&Y.

Onward!
