2015 Roo Shower Walls Useless

Can anyone tell me why FR didn't just make the walls in the shower flat, these two shelves that stick out are useless and I wish I could change them.

You're right! More of a visual effects for appearance, then not. They do look rather useless given the depth they appear.

Might be possible to modify it in a way to accommodate a couple of hanging wash cloths, if indeed you use the shower. Looks about the right size for one, and they wouldn't stick out being they are already recessed.

Agree. Same walls as my previous htt. Nothing stays on those shelves unless your trailer isn't level. Also, the shower controls could protrude just a little bit less.

Mine actually will hold like hotel shampoo bottles, so I don't hate them...but I agree pretty pointless.

Great idea, RooVader.....These little hotel bottles are perfect for camping.

Now that you mention that, I could see a mod being made by attaching some sort of acrylic strip ( being waterproof ) across the entire openings to hold the bottles in place. And they would most likely be secure even while traveling. Or possibly a netting material would work as well. I'm sure with a bit of imagination one could make a sweet little mod.

We got a "Command Shower Caddy" (see here) and mounted it on the wall just above the useless shelf. It's been up for a year now and hasn't come off the wall yet.

To me it is all a non-issue with those awesome hanging pouches. I love those things. I think my shelf might be a little deeper in the DK though...I swear i had a regular bottle sitting on that thing last weekend but now I can't remember.

they've been installing these shower enclosures, with useless shelves, for years.
our 2007 23SS has the same enclosure as pictured.

Nope, they fall off too (unless your camper is not level). But, they don't hurt your toes when they land on your feet!

Maybe they should add a sticker that says "this shower is for simulation only...any attempts to actually shower and utilize the pretend shelf will not be the responsibility of Forest River or its subsidiaries".
