My guys don't think they fit in my Roo shower!

It's a deal breaker if I have to worry about who can fit in my shower all the time. Me and my daughters are OK, but my son's head is in the the skylight of my 183. I looked at the other models, but they don't have 3 bunks to sleep everybody. Even the 233, with 3 bunks, has the same bathroom.

There is an outside shower with unlimited headroom.

Your sons must be really tall! Finding an RV with a shower with more headroom might be difficult. Some of the 5th wheels have high ceilings.

In our family, that just means the shower is for the ladies. I've been overheard to say things like "Buck up, son."

I'm 6'6" and 210lbs. and I use the shower in our 23IKSS all the time. Yes, my head is up in the skylight a little but for the benefit of having a nice clean shower to use and water that is plenty hot, it is well worth it.

Many campgrounds have free public showers for those that are limited in the headroom area. If he is that tall he probably has to duck his head in lots of places. The outside shower hose would also work.

I'm 6'3" and yes, my noggin is up in the skylight. It isn't luxurious but I get clean.

That's all that counts when camping.

The dealerships laughed at us when we were trailer shopping.. Being 6' 3" as well I always first went to the bathroom, lost the shoes then tested the shower. They laughed until I had a few that even with my head in the skylight I was still hunched over. Stinks being tall sometimes... But not often.

Been there, and done that! And it is workable. Actually, I find my "girth" to be a greater limitation than my 6'4" height in the Windjammer's shower. Since we mostly stay in State parks with decent showers, I usually just "rough it" and leave the TT shower (and related grey tank capacity) for the ladies in our family.

Did see a MH with a outside shower curtain. crescent rail which clipped on the side and extended down to 12 " from the deck.
