Default Need an enclosed shower and head in 1. Any ideas?

Just getting ready to start building my Kenworth motor home /toter home . Trying to keep the body small to be able to get around with my 39' express cat. Maybe 18-20' body .I want the master bed big and "salon" big so the head must be small but usable. I have seen boats with the toilet IN the shower enclosure ( KInd of like a sit down set up but nice). Can't remeber what boat . Maybe a formula PC or some other cruiser . I have plenty of head room for a standup but not much floor space left . Can anybody tell me who makes this setup or what boat may have one to look at ?

Where's all my motor home buddies ? WHere gonna have to have a pow wow on the fine art of building this monster !

While we're on the subject , Does anyone know of a good chat board for motor homes ? Need to get liscencing , registration , and insurance info. THanks !

My fathers sailboat had a set up like that. There were seperate nobs for the shower and the toilet. Very simple actually. Just make sure that there is not way for water to get out as it will in a confined space like that. Makes you apreciate your shower at home after a couple days on the water

How about a home-style fiberglass shower stall and then just mount a head inside plumbed to a holding tank(flexible??) You may also be able to mount a small sink in one corner for teeth brushings, etc. They come with one piece or folding glass doors for tight spaces. I would epoxy some pipe holders on the back of the thing and make the whole thing removable for service.

My buddy who builds race car haulers might have some info on the RV showers. I know he orders seats/couches from some RV place. He uses full size showers in his but I think the "cabin" is about 28 feet. I'll find out tomorrow and e-mail you.

did you ever get those pic's of that 5th wheel set up I sent?

I would contact several Motorcoach builders and ask for the purchasing Dept. They must buy this exact kind of thing for their coaches. There are a lot of coach builders in Tenn. and Indiana. Try there first.
