For anyone who doesn't like the shower curtain sticking to you while showering, get rid of the stock curtain hanger and install a radius shower curtain rod that can be bought at most home centers, it will give you 3-4" more elbow room. We also found that keeping the door shut with the exhaust fan running (if your fan is in the bathroom) causes the curtain to balloon out giving you even more room to move.

Had to use public showers when I was a over the truck road driver. Though it is small in our latest TT we always use our own.

I have a 23 ft trailer. I'm 6' 285 lbs (no jokes). I use my shower all the time. Its small but it works and water is hot. I stay in Fl in the winter. The campground is good, has a restaurant (great food). Showers suck. Rent is 450 per month.

We are not that big, 5'9" the both of us. Our shower is a huge walk in glass sided jobber. You're damn right we use it.

Even at that, all the trailer showers we have had in the past, we always used them.

We also use ours very often.

I've installed a soap/shampoo/conditionner distributor and it made it a lot easier, as there are no spots to hold that stuff.

It's a BIG plus to have that luxury - some CG have terrible facilities...

our last trailer had a wet bath shower and toilet in same area. We would put a plastic bag over the toilet and use the shower. The gray water would last 3 days with three people showering everyday. The new windjammer has a corner shower witch is used all the time. Why get a great trailer with a large shower and not use it.

We use the shower. I have long hair and will admit that the hand held shower thing that came with it doesn't do a good job - feels like someone driping water from a teaspoon. I am using the bus box (grey plastic dish bin) for baths for my 3 children. There is enough room for them to sit, get soaped and get rinsed. If I am not doing their hair the bin doesn't fill completely for all 3.

My concern about converting the shower (aside from losing the shower) would be the additional weight. Empty space doesn't weigh much.

Ya know some of you who been answering have much larger trailers or even motor homes. Sure, If I had a big ol trailer or motor home with 50 or hundred gallon tanks, I would use it too. This trailer has a 36 gal FW tank. ( Which is fine with us) I guess we are spoiled where camp, (Pennsylvania and mostly at Federal parks or Corps of engineer lakes). Their rest room and shower facilties are exceptional. What we did is left the shower in tact, (just in case), But I did put a subbase over the shower pan then put in a 5 drawer plastic unit from walmart. Held in by bungy cords. It holds all the extra stuff we use.....

SO if you have a BIG trailer (5er) or one of those 33' trailers I seen going down the road towed by a mini cooper, use that shower.

Obviously my original question was wrong.
What we wanted to know was, Who doesn't use the shower and what did you do with space.

Happy camping to all and to all a good night.

latner-where do you buy one of those radius shower rods to fit a shower stall? I see them lots for the shower/tub combo but never for a shower stall.
