I'd really like a separate toilet and shower but like Tango, with 10' of living space the whole thing had to be rolled into one. The toilet and sink are OK but the shower set up sucks. By the time I get the "bathroom" wiped down after a shower I need another bath--oh well. Jack

In our camper I just let it dry on its own. I am glad our bus has room to make a real bathroom though.

Just got the water tank, , grey tank and black tank. Now it is time to build the water closet. no not bathroom, water closet to hold the water tank. That will be part of the pantry and fridge.

Due to space, we went with a combo. We put the composting toilet (yup, bucket and wood pellets) over the rear wheel well, so you have a step up to it after getting in the shower section. I cut a shower curtain to fit the window and the rest to fit over the step so it keeps the toilet area dry when showering. We use magnetic hooks for nearly EVERYTHING and so that makes it easy to put the 2nd shower curtain back on the wall side when done. We also opted to only have 1 sink because really? Do we need 2? And space, of course.

I pretty much shower when he's not home and he pretty much showers when I'm in bed but even when we're both home we've never had to both be in the bathroom at once. So far. *knock wood*

Editing to add that we have a drape that we use to create space. During the day it hangs against the closet. At night or when showering, we hang it across the hallway for privacy. The other drape currently hangs sideways across the windshield...

[IMG][/IMG]Toilet is right around the corner from the near wood wall. The white sink and counter top has been replaced with a one piece top (2x4ft.) and a small stainless sink. To the right of the sink now is our reclining love seats. Shower is about 2-1/2X4 ft. Enough room in there to change clothes etc.

2kool4skool, where is your wheel well? Behind the shower? Maybe in the bedroom?

Actually, I don't think these are ever "done"...

The best style is the one that works for you and your typical/anticipated use. IMO, there is no right or wrong (or all around best)...
ooo-WOW-ooh! That bathroom is gorgeous! What kind of paneling is that?

I agree with you, JD about whatever best fits your needs. My old Winnebago has only 16 feet behind the cab, but still has a decent sized full bath. My bus has 25 feet behind the driver, so I'm definitely going full bath. I'm solo, too, but I just like full baths better - and have the space for it.

JD, nice walk through bathroom!
I plan on remodeling my Class A to have a walk through similar to yours. I can only hope it will be half as nice!
