simplify a search?

Hello folks,

I am trying to narrow my search down on potential AS models by looking for center bath models, 25 - 31 ft, mid 80s yr.

Could a few of you please point me in the right direction. I would like to know what you know.

Thanks,,

Steve

Well, I know the center bath is a good solution for us. That set up keeps the tanks and a lot of other potentially heavy things close to the axles--always a good thing. It also allows people to access the bath from the front sleeping area or the rear bedroom without intruding upon other's sleeping quarters.

There are two set ups for a center bath from that era, the walk through and the side bath. Our 1988 34' has a walk through bath. My dad's 1989 34' Excella has a side bath.

The walk through obviously gives you a larger bath--ours is basically the size of the rear bedroom. Full size tub/shower/washing machine closet on one side and sink/toilet/full size linen closet on other. In (personally unproven) theory, you could have one person using the sink, one using the toilet, and one in the shower--a lot of space in this trailer is dedicated to the bath. Doors are on both entry points to the bath from the rear bedroom and from the kitchen.

Side bath equals much tighter quarters in the bath. It gives a much smaller shower and the toilet and sink are much cozier. It works, and for the time you spend in the bathroom (small amount, relatively speaking) it makes more sense. In the case of my father's trailer, he has a 3 door wardrobe opposite the bath--a good deal of storage.

If I had a choice between a center walk through bath and a center side bath, I would pick the side bath simply because space is always at such a premium and this setup seems such a better use of space.
Hope this is somehow helpful to you in your search.
Good luck.

Here's a link to the specs section from the Mothership's website that may help.

I have a 1986 Argosy 33FK. It's a center bath, side set up. I have a huge wardrobe on the other side of the bathroom that's great for storage The shower is a decent size unit with a functional size seat. I like this set up a lot better than the rear bath in my old trailer.
