Shower question

We are looking at a 2017 grey wolf 26dbh.... Question about the shower as my husband thought he read somewhere that the shower has regular walls and does not have a surround. Has any one else experienced this??? Worried about causing water damage!

All the shower enclosures I have ever seen are the same, plastic enclosures with overlapping seams to shed water to the drain. I have never seen one with regular walls nor could I envision a shower built this way.

Had a 2014 model. It's a surround. You'll need to caulk it, and it'll be fine.

I just bought a 2017 Cherokee 274dbh. No surround in shower. Was told to just wipe down after use and will be fine

I have a 2015 Evo (similar to GW), it has a surround. I caulked the seams for added piee of mind but to have no surround seems odd? What material is the wall then?

Here is a pic from the brochure. The walls look the same but I was told they have waterproof material on them. Kind of weirded me out also. But this is a very popular model and been this way a few years. I'm sure if it was horrible it would of been changed.

Its probably a product called Marlite.Its 1/8" masonite that is coated on one side with a white plastic. Marlite is very durable and water resistant but the edges are not.Water gets into cracks or behind it and it swells up and the coating will start peeling.When I had the marina we relpaced a lot of it on the exterior of houseboats.It is critical to keep it caulked/ sealed at all edges or cuts.

Interesting, I just did a search and found no shower surrounds on trailers since 1980s with a bunch of newer posts starting 2009. Im guessing it isnt a problem. A bunch of posts on other forums say the wall paneling is a sealed vinyl and for the occasional/periodic use that an entry level TT is meant for it is not a problem. I never would have thought.......
