What I've seen is there's a trough in the center and the floor slopes from all sides toward the trough...

There's no curtain so water is going to splash off you over the whole room.

Pick a specific wet room and look at the specifications for it.
Should tell you the specifics and the exact measurements for the drain center and or trough dimension if a trough is built into it or if you need to figure out your own for that suppliers product.
The wet bath toilet thing is not just an RV thing?
Something that just started popping up around here if BATHFITTER that makes there own stuff to refitt an existing unit but should be able to tell you what framing or support is needed to fit there custom design unit as well as drain openings.
Anyone can do fiberglass and with the vehicles thes days we know it flexes so why not a custom build?
Even the state park toilets setting over a 30' deep hole are fiberglass.
Cheap and easy to fix yourself but the finished look to match the existing is where the money is.

The few I saw I didn't like, they were all in Tiny houses and not buses. One had a sliding door on a barn track and had aluminum on the bath side and the shower head was right in the middle of the bath.... Crazy

If you can't afford or do your own custom build then you have to accept something already made which you have to cut to fit anyway?

I stayed in a really cheap hotel once that had a bathroom like this. No thanks.

It has a sliding door on the outside (barn style) but without a raised lip across the opening, water is just going to run out into the living area. Cute...but not too savvy.

Actually, not only is there not a lip, it looks like the tile is higher than the wood. Not good.

Well, they are everywhere, because over on one of the FB Skoolie groups someone posted about how they were so happy with how their shower tile came out.

Man, I have seen so many bathroom builds with minimal to zero water proofing of the substrate it drives me mad. A vinyl liner at the bottom at least would be a good start. There are such easy options now to use that I can't believe people don't use them. Redgard or Aqualock just paints on and cause a non permiable membrane. Heck, it even changes color to let you know it's dry.

It doesn't matter what you use for the grout, including the flexible grout, with all of the movement of a bus, your going to have water leakage at some point. You may not see it, but it will happen and it will be nasty and moldy and gross.

This happens in normal houses that don't bend and flex, now compare this to a moving vehicle. I'm not at that point on my build, but I will be using Redgard when I am (because I'm familiar with that product). Anyways, just my 2 cents.

+1 for RedGard! That stuff was a breeze to install. I put down a layer of the stuff, pushed in some fiberglass mesh tape and then troweled the rest of the bucket for the top layer. I'll sheepishly admit that I haven't even tiled over it yet after 2 years and it's still holding up great!
