Yep, the aisle shower used to be state-of-the-art.

Teak mat arrived yesterday. Couldn't be happier with the quality and fit.

I know some here think its a bit if a luxury item, but I think it makes the bathroom look much nicer. The bathroom floor always showed every spec of dirt and nobody likes the feeling of being in a dirty bathroom.

Wife loved it.

Thanks for the recommendation and the template!

It is a luxury item, and we all have them in one way or another.

We don't all have to need and want the same things, do we?

If you love it, and the wife loves it, that is what is most imoortant.

Travel safely,

Maggie

We've made a template from the one that Bill sent us. There is no need to ship the other template around, unless you want to double check that it will fit. Just call us and let us know that you would like to order a mat for your Airstream Interstate. We'll get it made and shipped to you. Also, let us know if there are any questions, we are trying to make this as easy as possible for anyone interested.

I've been emailing with Nick at Teakworks4u cusomer service. He said he has the template for the Interstate. Thought I would let everyone know.

Teak Shower Mat

@c21bill that is exactly what I want... Not to use while showering but to have something to stand on that sits above any water accumulation until I can get to more level ground to drain. Thanks for sharing 😊

There has got to be someone other than teakworks - $172 for 27FB seems way excessive!

It's not. The Airstream Life store sells one, but charges $229 for it!

Well, there's always the BORG (Big Orange Retail Giant) version which is not teak but which I have enjoyed very much for the whopping price of $25. Plus I got to use the rubber scraps for other useful purposes such as lining the bottom of the lithium battery corral. Blog post with details.

If you Google "Teak Shower Mat" you get several products from a variety of retailers for under $50. You might have to alter one to fit the custom dimensions of your shower.

OK, I admit it: I splurged on paying teakworks4u $172 for a teak shower mat for our 27FB.

1. It looks gorgeous.
2. Unlike the fiberglass shower floor, it's not slippery at all --- and I'm an olfogey with balance problems and am fearful of falling, which I DO NOT WANT TO DO in the AS shower --- ouch!
3. I'm an old boater, since grade school, and as an old boater, teak means something special for me.
4. As an old boater, I'm quite familiar with building boat projects out of teak. Teak is now around $30 a board-foot. I priced how much teak I would need to build an identical shower mat, and I got between 4 & 5 board-feet. At $30/BF, that's $120-$150. For $172, I thought I'd let teakworks4u build it for me.

So far, no downsides to the teak shower mat, except possibly that it reduces the standing headroom in the shower by around an inch. I guess if you're a giraffe, that might make a difference.
