You shouldn't fear it.

You will spend and waste money using paper towels. There are other good suggestions here.

Get out there, and enjoy!

We use the wet bath in our 16' Bambi all the time. No big deal at all!
We keep an Absorber chamois in there and use it. Some 303 waterproof spray on the shower curtains once a year keeps them doing their job and everything is good.
Think of it this way the toilet is always clean....

Yea, the chamois idea seems ideal. Will buy some.

We spent a ridiculous sum replacing the tiny shower curtain earlier this year, but the good news was that this new one is made out of some synthetic, microfiber stuff that a) goes into the washing machine and comes out clean and b) dries in no time at all.

The old shower curtain was plastic, and washing it never did remove the mildew stains.

If one sewed, and had a machine, could probably buy an inexpensive shower curtain, cut it in half and make replacements to rotate as needed.

Where'd you get your special microfiber curtain? Details please! Thanks.

I use a shammy (Absorber) which is absolutely the greatest for wiping down the shower install. I recently purchased some Dri-Dek from West Marine (you can get this stuff in lots of places) they are interlocking 12x12" vinyl squares and easily cut to match your floor design. They keep you dry and easy to maintain. Cost me $24.00 bucks.

We make do with wet wipes, and on our 5-nighter we showered at the campground mid-week. Really, this hasn't been a problem and we've stayed pretty clean and fresh-smelling!

Wondering what other Interstate owners do. Do you also avoid using the shower? Or do you have some great way to deal with drying everything off before the next person needs to use the toilet!

Thank you in advance for your suggestions and for what I'm sure will be some smart-ass comments...all are welcome!
I have a wet bath in my Cayo C-11.

We keep a small squeegee on a hook next to the toilet to aid in wiping down the space and the floor. Then we have an absorbent cotton bath rug that we put in place to keep socks and shoes dry, which we remove when showering. It works for us. It is not necessary to wipe up every little drop of water.

We also have a squeegee in our Airstream, which has a separate shower area.

We wouldn't use disposable towels for something like that, but, whatever.

It was a replacement part, from the factory, via OutofDoorsMart.

wax the walls and ceiling with Turtle Wax Ice in the spray bottle, about twice a year. Any water just beads up on the walls and rolls right down to the floor. I avoid waxing the floor; spray wax on a textured surface doesn't work so well, plus I don't want to make the floor slippery.
Good Idea Protagonist

How does the T.P. stay dry in a Wet Bath? Is there some ingenious contraption?

We have a medicine cabinet in the bath which, while not completely waterproof, stays reasonably dry, so we usually use that. Or sometimes we just put the roll on the dinette or in the closet.

There are a couple of TP roll holders sold for yachts that I looked at and almost bought, but my rig doesn't have quite the right space for them to work. They have a plastic clamshell cover with seals, and are available in surface and recessed mounting options.

Also, in some cases, the shower curtain protects the TP roll.

The Interstate tp holder incorporates a door that rotates down & closes off over the roll and seems to keep the dry.

It is an ingenious centraption. As you pull the door down, the toilet paper roll rolls up, to ensure that any dangling tail of paper is retracted as well (picture from a vendor's web page, not an actual photo of one installed in an Inmtrerstate):
