Shower conversion? Isata 3 RW

Brian mentioned a year or so ago that they were looking into a shower conversion kit for the Isata 3 RW - to remove the shower curtain and install a door of some sort. Has this become a reality? The only thing we donít like about our coach is the shower curtain, which we HATE! With the way the curtain grabs our legs when showering, it decreases the space by 1/3.

Thanks, Sandi & Gerry

I don't have a good photo of my solution to hold the curtain away while showering. The best I have is below. I used a PEX tubing (red tube in photos) about 4ft long and shaped it to push against the curtain for maximum space inside the shower. This holds the curtain away so it doesn't cling to your body. I installed a PVC fitting near the bottom of the shower at the exterior wall and another fitting about midspan in height against the bedroom wall side of the shower. The red PEX tubing is removable. Over time the PEX took the desired twist & bend and is easy to install & remove while inside the shower stall. Hope this gives you some temporary relief to this annoyance.

No, the supplier was working on a plastic shower curtain similar to the one we use on the FW, but they never came through.

We're working on a redesign on the 24RW to see if we can get a shower like the 24FW,...sink would likely move outside the bathroom.

Not what I wanted to hear, but thanks for the reply.

I have a few questions about your modification to the shower. This has been a pain for us too. Did you find it worked best to keep the shower curtain away from you body by having one of the fittings at the bottom and the other mid-way up on the opposite wall? Did you think about putting them both near the bottom? I'm assuming the PVC fittings are standard PEX type fittings? With the shower curtain pushed out with the PEX does this cause any water to get out onto the bathroom floor. I definitely want to try this modification too, thanks for posting.

We use 2 small bungee cords with alligator clips. Just clip it to the curtain before getting in. Click image for larger version
