I have this shower rod installed and it is well worth it to gain a little more room in the already cramped shower.

X2! Big difference. And it is great to dry towels or swimsuits on afterwards too.

We have installed the Extend-A-Shower rod in each of the past 3 RVs, and are going to install it on our new Sunseeker. (In fact, we ordered it built without the shower door.)

On the past 3 RVs, the screws just went into the thin wall plywood and nothing else, and they held up fine to lots of traveling. The original shower rods were also screwed into the same places. In the RV world, there is a lot of stuff attached to the wall with nothing backing it up. So, go for it.

I bought a curved shower rod you would install in the home (similar to Thurman) and used a pipe cutter to cut the end to make it fit. I cut the end that has a plastic piece that slips over the end of the rod so the cut marks will never be seen.
I never looked back.
The old straight rod - curtain used to suck into the tub and cling to you. now it gives me a little extra room which makes it nicer.
Here is the thread I did of my install - IN Process of adding a Curved Shower Curtain Rod
