I bought waterproof wall panels at lowes and lined everything including door and just used entire bathroom as shower. No pics, but worked great for us. When I put it on Craig's, it was bought by first person who looked at it, and for price I asked for. And only spent about $100 for the remodel

Thanks EHeki81..........I did see a video of another person who did this exact thing you are talking about when he did a Camper makeover. There is hope yet!

Well, if you do tackle the project I hope you will post some pics. It would be cool to see. Good luck!

If he's talented enough to remodel and remove the tub and shower then he could probably remodel again and add a tub and shower before putting it up for sale.

Our bathroom is really rather large for a trailer and as for the toilet ours is in its own, for the lack of better words, large closet. I'm 6'2" 215 lbs and I can move around in it fine. As to what your talking about doing that's a major overhaul and some things won't be moved easily because of location of blk and grey water tanks. When you start removing walls you change the integrity of the structure. In all of these units you can always find a part in one that you would like in another. When It comes to the bathroom we've never really used it, we use the CG bathrooms and showers, unless it's the middle of the night.

I might take a shot at it next winter, as I just finished a remodel on our rear slide that was set up for a family of 5 or more kids. By gutting the rear slide of a large couch and fold down bunk, I was able to install a 39 " double door wardrobe cabinet with plenty of hanging space and shelving, a 36" base cabinet with more shelving(pantry space) and a matching hanging unit above it, with enough space left, 12 inches, to provide more hanger space and I built a cabinet with shelves below it with a door I removed across the trailer from a factory cabinet, to make room for a Splendide washer dryer combo. I removed a smaller couch from the living/dining area and replaced it with the larger couch from the rear slide. I removed the booth and replaced it with a table & four chairs. We topped this off with a Dish Satellite and two receiver and new jacks to feed both inputs from outside. The rear slide area now provides more floor space,6 ft,, to accommodate a swivel chair and hassock. I cut the booth table top into two pieces and attached the smaller piece on collapseable shelf brackets to extend the kitchen counter for meal prep & dishwashing space. The table top & counter top are matching materials. The larger half I hung similarly with two collapsible brackets{ Home Depot $12.99, 600 ibs each) in the rear slide area on the opposite, bathroom exterior wall. This provides desk space or laundry folding space and collapses when not in use and is adjacent to the rear window area which has top & bottom cabinets with a matching counter top that runs the width of the rear, less the bath room area.. There is a TV antennae jack in this location as well. I am just putting on the finishing touches and have not taken after pictures yet, but will tomorrow, maybe. we are shoving off Sunday for the summer and can't wait to try out the new floor plan. I was able to re-use much of the trim, doors and other materials from the tear outs to re-trim everything to give a custom original materials look. My how I ramble. This will do until I can talk Susie in to a 34 ft. V-Lite with the front bath, double sink, cabinets and counter space on each side of the V and double rear slides with TV and fireplace across the rear with two lazy Boys and dining table on opposite slides. May be a pipe dream, but one can always dream. Do good and safe travels!

Hey Mark, not planning on removing or replacing any walls. Tentative plans are to remove tub / shower and then relocate sink to the previous shower area to reconnect to those water lines. Then thinking of possibly installing an outside shower where the pre-existing sink lines are located. Should be an easy install seeing the water lines are readily available and I can tap into them easily. I have an outside cubby not in use so may use that for the shower install. Won't need to utilize the sink drain for this install either. Although might have to re-route the water lines a bit. But as far as the drains for the black and grey tanks, none of this will change.

Not changing the integrity of the structure, just cosmetic rearranging.

Greg, I think a one-way remodel would be plenty. But thanks for the encouragement.

Good luck with the remodel. I am currently camper shopping and require a shower. Although small and probably a pain to use, we need something for the toddler just in a case she needs a quick rinse.
