question on shower surround

My friend just purchased a new 2019 Wildwood and it does not have any thing on the wall in the shower/tub is this normal? The wall is the same wall as in the entire camper. We have a Sunseeker and had a Rockwood camper and both have/had the plastic tile looking surround...

Some manufacturers choose to not install tub/shower surrounds.

I had a SOB that was this way saving them money on every unit.

It was OK for a year or two but then water started to wick up in the corners, bulging the wall panels. We wound up installing our own panels and then traded it off a year or so later.

I googled wildwood 2019 and click on fisrt link. Sure enough, no shower surround. I'd either install one or see if I could find some sealant that would create a water tight barrier. I dont know is that exists.

This is actually not a rarity, in some lines.

This has to be one of the craziest things I have heard with regards to RV's!!!! In my mind that would be a deal breaker!

We bought them at Home Depot.
It was a cut to fit kit.
We glued them with liquid nails adhesive and caulked around the perimeters.
