In colder weather I pop up an enclosed dunny so it's nice and warm inside, but don't have to deal with all the condensation build up indoors. It's bad enough fighting condensation from my portable propane heater.

Of course.. the above wouldn't apply so much to CG RV'rs, but to each their own. I would imagine anyone with pets would welcome an outdoor shower. Quick access to cold drinking water and perfect for a nice warm bath.

I knew it would fit the outside hole because it fit the inside hole and the siding was super easy to cut.

The shower was so easy I'm considering a window for the lower bunk now. One thing about the 195BH, it was so cheap I'm not afraid to mod it and make it my own. If it cost $50,000 I might be more concerned about resale value.
When u do the window please put up pics and info on it when u are done, i'm considering the same thing. thinking of the same size as the upper bunk window
