Oh wow! Lots of good inspiration! That's really interesting with the access from the bedroom, I hadn't thought of that. I also really like Roach 711's build if my bus could suit that.
I do think a medium bus will work best for me.
Thank you

The combined shower/toilet area in my rig is 31" wide x 38" deep. Quite tight. And even then I had to cut away part of a wheel well. Oh...and forget about standing up. You will pretty much have to step in and out slightly hunkered down.

But...it will be easy to park!

Ha. I'm sure we can figure out how to drain it with enough creativity
I'm not too sure yet what kind of bus I'm looking for. I'm going to start with a list of my necessities and work out a few floor plans to see what the minimum space I can work with is. I want to go as small as possible, but any creative ideas are welcome. I think I might be looking at a 7-8 window.
Thank you

As long as the parking's easy ;)
I don't think I'll mind a small space as long as all the bits get cleaned haha.
Besides, I think the smaller the better. Even though it'll be a nice perk, all it has to do is serve it's quick purpose and not take too much from the living space (hopefully, although I'm expecting it to take a reasonable chunk out)

I have a short shower in a long bus lol. My bathroom is decently sized, 30 x 60, but the shower head is rather low, at about my shoulders. Will work great sitting on a bucket. But when I want to enjoy my shower, I'll go to the kitchen sink, turn my commercial faucet backwards so it is facing out the window and have a nice Tall shower in the great out of doors. Maybe something like that will work for you. I have seen shower pans as small as 28"x28" You can get them pretty small.

Of course this is all in theory. I'm still building and have yet to go out on a trip in my bus.

Don and Mary. It's good to see the inside of a similar bus. Similar, but I have no toilet, shower, sink, AC, curtains and on and on. I'm even missing a paint job. Is that a maypole in your isle?

It's a stripper pole!

It's very handy for Mary to hang on to while underway and as you exit the bus for balance.
