Considering that a "standard sized tub" holds about 60 gallons of water (about 40 with a person in it), unless you pull a tanker behind you, I would think about the only time you could use one would be when hooked up to city water at a campground.

Just a thought.

I'm pretty much trying to build a rolling hotel room.

My fiancee and I have totally different ideas of camping. I'm happy with a tent, cot, and sleeping bag. She wants to rent an air conditioned cabin that has a stove and what not in it.

I can take a bath out of a pot of water, or use my handy dandy foldable bag camp shower. She wants hot water and "comfort".

I'm cheap and enjoy the simpler things in life, she's fancy and likes to "be comfortable".

This is my idea of a compromise. I'm tired of paying $100+ a night anytime we go somewhere because "I'm not sleeping in a tent!". And since I've always wanted to do a skoolie conversion, this gives me a good reason to do it.

So ultimately, while I will have the ability to do minor off grid living, the majority of the time I will be connected to shore power and water.

Yes, you and your partner need to be on the same page. There have been several good options presented in this thread and hopefully there will be more ideas submitted. At the end of the day you have to find a solution that works for both of you or the bus conversion will not work.

Yes sir, you are right. I learned along time ago, the key to a successful relationship is making sure mamma agrees with what you're doing.
