as to doors on showers that are in hybrids, never seen anything like that nor any mod like that. and that's after 7 years on various hybrid forums.

in fact, you have to go to a much bigger trailer or way more expensive trailer, to find that kind of thing. usually don't see that kind of thing until you go to a 5th wheel or motorhome.

How to contact Manufacturer?

I've been on Forest River's website looking for a way to contact them with suggestions concerning the shower in the 23 IKSS and similar showers. I couldn't find a link for direct contact.

Does anyone have a link?

I think a standard "oversize" shower curtain rod as well as standard splash guards would be a great idea. At least offer them as options. I installed an oversized rod from Camping World. It is a three piece unit and the rings don't glide smoothly over it.

Some nice like colored full length splash guards(with spring clips)up both sides and, perhaps around the base would be great. A longer curtain would solve the base splash problem, but then you run the chance of standing on the curtain and tearing it away from the rod.

The finish on our shower is bumpy and it is difficult to get adhesive to stick to it.

Anyway, I'm going to attempt contact with Camco to suggest an aftermarket guard, too.

there are already splash guards made that many use in corner showers. they're available at HD, Lowe's and other similar stores.


i know many 23SS owners have installed these in their showers.

Are these the corner guards at the bottom? We already have those. I want something from top to bottom.

I've done a couple shower mods, including a flexible curtain track. You can check out my thread posted here.

I bought one of those 3 ft long corner shields like in bikendan's pic, but haven't installed it. There are screw tops or something (can't recall; trailer's still in storage) sticking out exactly where you'd want the shield to go. I saw in another thread where a guy just screwed a piece of clear plastic (lucite?) to the outside of the shower and caulked it on the inside. I may end up with that.

Have any luck yet?
I found out it wasn't the curtain where the water leaks out onto the floor. What I did was where the shower curtain ends at the bottom, I caulked a line on the top of the basin that channels the water back into the basin. I also level the Roo so the water doesn't run out along the top of the basin. It works. Let me know if you found anyone who makes doors for it and if the expandable curtain rod works. I haven't had much luck.

Got some automotive panel retainers since my last posting. I had to cut the tops off, but then I could cut off the old fasteners, drill new holes farther to the right, and install the new retainers. Then I attached the splash guard. Only problem now is that the splash guard won't stay in place while towing. Seems the shower base and stall flex too much during travel. I didn't caulk it, so maybe that's what it needs.

The expandable rod I bought at Camping World was too small to give any extra elbow room. I bought the same size diameter aluminum tubing and cut, drilled and sprayed the longer lengths. I replaced the original sections from the CW model. It works fine now. All the fittings don't allow the rings to slide very easily, though.

I'm going to HD, Lowe's to find the longer white plastic splash guards. What I used is functional but ugly. I wish I had seen the ones from HDepot, first. We bought a curtain that was way too long and cut it to just a little too long. You don't want to trip/slip on that.
