When we look at RV's, I go straight to the bathroom and if the shower stall isn't big enough for me to bend down and reach my feet, there is nothing more to look at in that unit.

I didn't say it was your fault, I said I was going to blame you.
It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.
The things that come to those that wait will be the scraggly crappy junk left by those that got there first.

Every RV designer should have to live in their creation for six months. They would live with short drawers because they can’t be bothered to design plumbing and electrical neat on the wall. Blocked storage under the sink because the P-trap is parallel to the wall. Drawers that are difficult to use because they don’t clear the toilet. Plugs in odd places. Worlds worst radio taking up a whole storage space for what a single DIN under hung radio could do better; and why not with a DVD to connect to the TV? No hooks any where to hang anything other than in a locker (great place for that rain soaked jacket, eh?). I have made over 100 mods to my TT that mostly should have been done by design and have not spent a grand. I could go on and on but to what avail?

Feel your pain! In 2014 traded in our classA for a new class A. In 2016 with 6000 miles on my rig I needed to replace a cracked knob. Went to the dealer, wife tagged along. I went in and she stayed out. Found my replacement knob, $3.69 and was happy. Came out and couldn’t find wife. Next thing I know she is in a new rig. My response was absolutely No, and we left. After 2 days of pouting we went back to take another look. Bottom line, my needing a $3.69 knob ended up costing an additional $55,000 after trade : but having fun.

My wife and I, on the other hand, see many other TT, 5vers and MH and look at the price tag. Our 2008 WolfPack 295WP is what we like. We simply do not desire the fancy high dollar units. And, ours is paid for.

Just give in now, we were on a trip in our class c and our outside door handle broke. While I was in the parts department learning that they didn’t have any handles in stock my wife wandered into the showroom... we left with a new Mirada

The bathroom sold us in our 2012 Surveyor 310 TT. A lot more room than our 1985 Citation!

My wife gets footitis... just another foot bigger. We started with a pop up with AC sand now in a 42’ 5ver, all based on her taking a little look online

My husband fixed the problem for me. When we built the barn in our backyard he made the door height 10'9 ". I think he knew then that at some point I would want to put an RV in it. So as you can see it controlled me but it doesn't stop me from looking which keeps him "worried".

Yep.... twice I took DW to the dealer with me to get parts... twice I wound up buying different RV's. I am playing the "What do you want to do first? Move to a smaller house or get a different RV?" That should throw her in a tail spin!

We bought our Cross Country a month ago and my DW absolutely loves it! She gushes and gushes about it, while I'm getting used to it from our Georgetown. Dealmaker for her, Bigger Bathroom and Shower!

Yeah, I only consider larger showers.

Can an adult use a 24” shower?

I do. I just lift my leg to wash below knees.
