Hi Carolyn,

Don't think I'd change anything on the layout from the way it is.

The wet bath has been fine and I use the shower all the time. Size has been fine. I ditched the door and just use the shower curtain to close it off and that gains some space. The door opening is smaller and the lower sill is much taller which helps to contain the shower spray. I also moved the plumbing fixture to the rear bulkhead next to the bed which makes the plumbing run simpler and keeps the water lines from running through the bath. I wipe the bath dry after showering and use a little vinegar to keep it clean. No soap scum after three years.

Otherwise, all the changes I made to the Caravanner layout have worked well. Fresh and gray tanks are in the frame and hang down 4 inches. The big tanks are great--don't have to run full, but it sure is nice for extended boondocking which I do a lot. They are uncovered and that hasn't been an issue. Putting those sliding bins in the wardrobe really helps the storage. Very happy with the recliners.

Cheers,
Steve

First She Had to Take a Ride on a Boat

Thanks Steve. When I have it drawn on the floor it looks so small in there. I didn't get to be in the bath when I first got the trailer as the floor was rotted through there. Your input is great.
Thanks!
Carolyn

Over the last 8-10 hours I have read this thread from the first post to the last one. I have made several notes based on the wealth of information here, even though I'm dealing with a different year/model. You are such an inspiration....I've fought through tears over the last few pages....but I'm so glad you're doing well with the full-timing. Thanks for following along on my thread & offering insight.

Thanks, Denise! Those of us with 50's trailers have got to stick together. You're almost to the fun stuff on yours.

cheers,

Great meeting all you Malimishers finally after following your blog for years. Brissy was totally unimpressed by your drone, Dan.

Cheers,
Steve
