We bought a 98' international with T444E

We live in Texas and just bought a bus to convert for road trips and long weekends, maybe spending a summer in it eventually. It's gonna be fun. Any tips on a shower without a roof raise?

Lots of folks use what is often called a "wet bath". Common on many boats too. That's where the toilet and a shower share the same space and it is usually a sit down arrangement. Mine will (of necessity) be such a design simply because I am dealing with a really short shorty. A hand held shower will be used while seated on the (closed) potty.

5 Gallon pail is all the toilet needed, and the chair posted above.

Remove the pail, add the chair, and shower away.

I'm in Austin! Raising my roof this weekend, so I'm only a bit ahead of y'all. Anytime you want to stop by and take a look at my conversion just give me a hollar!
