Re: A skoolies sauna?

Some people are very ingenious. I wish I had a sauna.

You should have ridden with me coming back from Tennessee. Your wish would have come true.

We have no air conditioning or steam.... so it's a "dry heat".....

Sometimes the radar shows rain (like tonight) but it often evaporates before it hits the ground. I call that torture. And it smells stinky-funny... like hot electrical wire. I'm told that it's the smell of "Ozone".

Hi, I'm considering a sauna/shower in my build. Found this thread through a search, but the first page is missing. Has someone already done this? Any input is appreciated.

Here in Canada, people wish for weather like you get in the states. Right now it's about 0 degrees Celsius outside and will be that cold or colder for most of the next 6 months. Besides the comfort and awesomeness of having a built in sauna, I think it would use less water for my bathing purposes, which would mean less water in my grey tank.

there was a military guy who got out, and built RV using boatbuilding skills and they traveled europe, it had a Japanese type soaker tub, that actually heated and filtered water

It was built on a freightliner/IH or something american chassis, the entire roof was solar panels

Half the bus conversions here in Finland have a sauna. It's really just like building a tiny residential sauna, but make sure you provide sufficient ventilation to dry it out or the humidity will rot your bus. A roof hatch would be ideal. Finding a small enough sauna stove might be a challenge.
