EXACTLY... You wouldn't believe how many $1000 sinks I got out of it - and some are just butt ugly... one tub was $3000.

Either builders dove tail that into a bid or some people have more money than sense! All of this got started by me going to Home Depot to ask about a Urinal... I def want a Urinal in there! It's just me and I don't have a dog so... I want a dam urinal! ha ha...

I wonder if I could bolt up a Square frame of C-channel around the Toilet underneath just to add a hearty stiffner to that area? Couldn't hurt anything! I've got a PEX shutoff valve on the Toilet already to cut water and flush before traveling. Being a Rear Engine this thing rides as smooth as a Cadillac. Even over bumps it's real forgiving.

Worst case on water issue is like my bosses upstairs office(seldom used)if he is on vacation once a week I pour water down the sink,toilet and hower just to fill the traps.
You might want to bend the fill float down to conserve water,you can always add more to the tank...ugh...if you need a big flush.
As for a urinal...hell go for it,I want one in "my" bathroom....

WOW! You don't let any moss grow I don't think you will have any trouble with the toilet--besides, the way it is positioned you will be able to sit there and wave. Congrats on going full time. Your trailer sure makes up for your previous shop and I think that is a GREAT idea. Keep the pics comming (including the trailer)as well as the palaver, we all learn from it!

Perfect! I just took an oldie faucet out of my granny flat and I can let you have it for $420. Shipping is included.(USA only) No charge for the bragging rights! All kidding aside, I think the new toilet and sink look great. Nothing wrong with doing it up posh--especially when it is a bargan

How much water does the toilet us per flush? How big are your waste tanks. I suppose it doesn't matter if you're not boondocking. I've heard that some high-end coaches are using water closet toilets, and you do know that if you keep this up your Thomas will think it's a Prevost.

LOL... I loved reading all the posts! Thanks guys!

Not sure on the Flush but it's supposed to be a conservation Toilet from what I remember reading about it when I got it. I'll find out - I have it printed out.

Ha ha... Just shy several Hundreds of Thousands of Dollars from being a Prevost - But if it thinks it... I'm okay with that~! Ha ha... I just got the Two Direct TV boxes hooked up this morning! Oh man is that cool to be able to watch TV. Oh wait... I have NO time to watch TV. Guess I'll have to catch a show or two before passing out from exhaustion at night!

I'll keep an eye on the ole Gal to make sure she doesn't loose too much of her "Skoolie"... I'm going to get the Washer Dryer Combo at Lowes. Should be in around June 22nd... That'll go into the "Garage Hauler".

I'm really enjoying it... just seems like I spend too much time on the road running to Home Depot or Lowes for nuts and bolts issues. Getting the Electric done is taking FOREVER~!

I personal like post's that have build,tech and FUN in them so much better to read and it gets forum users closer
And what is "conservative water usage" when you flush a thousand doller crapper?

Keep up the good work
And don't forget about dvr!

Its the only way I find time to watch tv
