This is exactly what I was planning to do with one. I was already thinking of putting my shower outside of the bus anyway. This would be better. I can be off the ground, put up a shower curtain via magnets on the end of a curved rod, shower, remove curtain and rod, pull lift back in. I also like the idea of using it to move the kitchen outside at will as well. I actually don't like the idea of having a kitchen inside but I'm weird like that anyway. I'd rather cook outside all the time unless the weather is bad.

I have an 8 window shorty and used it to help me remove the seats out of the bus. I removed it and got it to the ground by myself using a ramp and slid it out! put on craigslist and sold it for$300 to a guy who is installing it in his crown skoolie! It was easy to remove. few bolts and a positive and negative wire.

Pictures of the shower on the lift would be great to sell the idea to the other half.

Does anyone have any pics of their lift being used for a kitchen or outdoor shower? I’ve seen on Pinterest using the doors for your outdoor shower: curtain on a cable that is attached to the doors, toiletries hung on the door and used a solar shower. I found that brilliant. I thought of a patio or shower stall, but being a rookie camper in general, I understand not all campgrounds allow gray water on the ground? I am very interested in a kitchen space that could slide out OR slide away if you needed the lift for chairs or a guest.
