mud room/bathroom ideas

Hello everyone! Newbie here. My wife & I are just getting ready to start the demo on our bus. It’s an ‘02 international 40’ with front , rear & side doors.
My question is: Has anyone thought of putting a mud room/bathroom in their floor plan? If so, where in the bus would you put it & where in relation would it be to the bedroom? We have a big dog that likes to play in the water/mud & my job sometimes involves dirty/greasy clothes.
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

you know that side door?

if you use that as " the filthy entry" I suppose you could work out some sort of plane to have some sort of "shower/hose off area where mud and muck could just fall onto the ground under with water.. kinda like a giant sized rodent cage. The crap just falls to the ground. have steps out of the area... use a floor trap door hatch kind of thing to cover the steps when shower clean off area is not in use.....put the stair facing rear or front and the deep section can be outside the frame rails but inside the wall...... extend the side door downwards.... with fold out auto steps... open the door and steps extend..... walk into shower/clean off area and shower down. drop wet grungy clothes/boots . walk up steps and close hatch door covering most if not all the shower/steps....

You must be a Northeaster. Mud room! Haven't heard that from a Californian.

If you only have to hose off a muddy dog you can install an outdoor shower / sprayer hose and notnhavw to bring them inside the bus to clean them off.
