For my '58 Flying Cloud I used teak planks from IKEA. You could always cut the corners to fit odd shaped tubs.

After I did a shower cabinet at home in Toronto with the IKEA tiles I realized that I shudda/cudaa done my ARGOSY the same way.

Looks very cool and has stood up very well after a year of daily use....

The wood is acacia from Vietnam and the tiles are very easily cut to shape.

Another big advantage is cost; $ 40 as opposed to the $200 or $350 being quoted here!

Truthfully, folks......these are quite lovely but for us beg the question....why would you want to cover the floor of the shower with something that is going to capture moisture, soap, hair, skin cells and other assorted, nefarious debris that will then congeal, adhere, mold, smell, etc., etc.?

Isn't it simpler and more sanitary to just clean up the floor and allow it to air dry after your shower?

Just sayin'.

I agree also

I have one but have NEVER showered with it.

It stays clean, always looks new, and smells great!

In response to Doug&Maggie, 73shark & Teamaron, we don't plan to use the AI shower as we primarily stay at campgrounds and rv parks and we're in the habit of donning our flip flops and heading to the park showers. Our concern was stepping into a fiberglass shower with street shoes on and scratching up the floor. With the teak mat, that is not a concern as it can easily be cleaned or refinished.

Wife put down a small rug that just fits to protect from scuffs. Take out for showers.

We use our AS as a daily driver and have never used the shower. More then any practical advantages or disadvantages of a teak mat, I think the bathroom looks and feels cheap. Considering it's entirely white plastic this is no surprise. Also, the floor shows dirty very easily and always looks grimy in my opinion.

TeakWorks4U Shower Mat Template

Thanks to Bill, I have the template for the teak shower mat for the interstate. I was satisfied with the fit-up and have ordered one today. If anyone one else in interested, call Amber @ 866.969.8325 and let her know that you want one. (Teak Bath Mats, Teak Shower Benches, Teak ADA Shower Benches : TeakWorks4u)

My particular rig is a 2012 Interstate EXT Lounge model. If you are concerned about fit-up for your rig, I can send the template to you for fit-up once it is returned to me in a couple of weeks. If you have the same model as me, or believe that the shower pan in yours is the same shape, you can call Amber and order one today.

I went with the plantation teak (~ $30 more if I recall correctly) for the only reason that it would get here quicker.

jquayle, you didn't get the ceramic tile and gold faucet option?

And, ya know, we all have different needs and wants....it's a good thing.

We slip our shoes off at the door of the Interstate, also at the door of our stick house. Was our practice long before we had our shiny, silver, travel thingy, and keeps dirt and crud out of the interior.....including the bathroom. That's another discussion.

The worst debris in the bathroom for us is......you guessed it!....dog hair. Lily doesn't go in the bathroom, of course, but we track her hair in on our bare feet.

There also seems to be a phenomenal amount of lint.

Every day, vacuum or wipe it up. If there was a mat there, I wouldn't see it as readily and it would be a weekly thing.

Again, each to his own. A teak shower mat is just not for us.


Maggie

I'm with you Maggie. We don't take our shoes off at the door (although I may slip into a pair of driving mods.) But one of the things I have liked about the shower compartment is how easy it is to clean. Just hose it out and maybe a quick spritz with "Scrubbing Bubbles" solution. Teak mats look nice and may feel good underfoot, but to my way of thinking they are just one more thing to collect dirt and has to be cleaned and cared for.

But it would be a very dull and uninteresting world were it not for differences of opinion and taste. I am always surprised at how many people do not share my taste for Scottish bagpipe music.

If we all wanted bare bones RVs, none of us would have paid the premium we did for the interstate. ;-)

For me as a first time RV owner and seeing what some of the other Class B offerings had for a shower in the aisle, I thought the enclosed plastic shower/bath was a step up.
