19' Airstream Bambi bathroom

I love my 2007 19' Airstream but the bathroom is small or should I say the toilet area. If your 5'11'' on up you feel cramped for leg room. My little 17' that I used to have had way move space. Has anyone created a modification to their bathroom?

Not much you can do besides sit side saddle. I'm 5'9" and I think it's tight! My other half is 6'2" and he's ok with it but when and if we move up we will bypass the 23 ( I love the size) and go to 25 for the bathroom. But for what we use it for (long weekends and one week trips) the 19 is perfect! I love the Bambi.

Some have added a sheet of plywood held by a piano hinge to the inside of the door that closes the open space when the door is open to make the bathroom square.

I think there is a thread on this forum about that. You can search for that thread and I will as well.

Everything about the Bambi is a compromise - it's got all the right pieces - but they are small and tight. The one that caused us the most grief was the 48" bed - it got modified into bunk beds. The bathroom size took a bit of getting used to - but no complaints any more (I'm 6' 2").

After 8 seasons at about 60 nights/season we still have no desire to trade up, down or sideways.

Try a PM to rivetng. They did something similar but used a shower door in place of the ply. Very nice job and effective. Maybe they can send you some pics.

Just downsized from a 25 FB to a 19. Love everything about the size of the Bambi other than the toilet space. I am 6'3" 240 and it is a bit cramped. I have to put one foot in the shower to close the door while sitting. I was thinking of a few options.

1) sew a curtain that will snap in place
2) Piano Hinge plywood to inside of the latch side of the door.
3) Extreme. Extend the wall 6 inches that the door mounts on and shorten the door. This will allow just a little more space without changing the size of the opening. The tradeoff is that you will have a smaller access to the bed area.

Where do I get the brown international CCD particle board?

Any thoughts.

Thanks,
Corbett

Quick question I have the 25' Safari SS with the same rear configuration as the 19 Bambi. The rear bed in mine is 54" wide. I suspect the bathroom is exactly the same as the 19' Bambi with the tight toilet area. My shower seems plenty large.

Are the 25SS bathroom and 19' Bambi bathroom identical?

Edit: probably so because the 19' Bambi is 8 ft. wide and mine is 8' 6". The 6 inch extra width is in the bed.
