lol. I'm a big guy too and I agree with everything you said. Like you were reading my mind. It's small, but very nice that it is clean and ours. That's a good comparison to the mri!

A few simple mods in the shower took it from being practically useless to something that is very usable. I'm 6'6" and about 210lbs. It is certainly not spacious - more like getting an MRI, but I like that it is clean, I like that it is mine, and as long as I don't drop the soap, it works great. You will have to take start & stop showers and if several of us are going to be showering I turn on both the gas and the electric on the hot water heater. Doing that, the HWH keeps up just fine.

I'm 6'3", 210 - it's cozy no doubt, but I manage - and yes, good thing there is a sky light or it would be a no-starter!

Upgrading the shower heard improves the experience, although I'm thinking of installing a couple of hooks with a small net to keep our small liquid soap/shampoo from hitting the floor - that's the worst part for me personally.

Yes the MRI is an awesome comparison. 6'3" and 270lbs. Skylight is a head saver LOL We have some mesh pockets for the shampoo and soap. Luckily i haven't dropped it yet. Although if the showers at the CG are clean I'll use them.

myself the wife and our 3 kids use the shower, no problem at all, turn the fan on to pull out the moisture and also turn on the electric as well as the gas to keep the hot water up to speed. works great. the oxygenics showerhead is a very nice addition.
18 Nights camped so far in 2014
reservations complete for 6 more.
Rockwood Roo is working out better than I ever expected.

Our salesman called the shower in our 21SS a "Ballerina Shower" because of the way one must move around in there. But I'm not a small guy and the sower works just fine for me...and the wife, just not at the same time!

I use the shower (6'3" 225) and my wife may or may not. If she wants a long shower with lots of room with no water police, it's off to the bathhouse. If she is lazy, she will use the camper. The oxygenics shower head is a must. We can make it through a 3 day trip if we conserve water. I can shower using very little water but for me it's better than getting dressed in the morning and sloughing down to the bathhouse not knowing what I will find!

Previous owner put shelves in on top of ours. 2002 232SS I think, Those will be coming out for all the reasons above. Also thought of a set up outside, frame tarp and foam floor and shower outside with our outside set up.
