The shower door lower-channel is notorious for being improperly-sealed by Airstream and will leak water down/between the cabinetry and the floor. It will appear that a drain-leak exists beneath the shower and will frighten someone who does not know that the problem is actually that the ends of that channel is not sealed.

After carefully drying and sealing with tub-n-tile silicone the ends of the channel...and being certain the drain-slots toward the shower-pan are clear...everything is just fine. (Airstream is obviously ignorant of and not listening to this common complaint.)

I realize GVWR is a limitation, but in some cases, more storage would be welcome. One of the areas that I found to be very poorly utilized was the space where the "magazine rack" in the bathroom sits. This is a cutout in a piece of MDF with a plastic backer. The backer is, at most, 4" deep. Looking through from under the sink, I see the following space behind that backer:

That's 3-4x the space that we're given. One could relatively easily design and 3D print a new backer that would allow the toilet paper roll to be mounted in this space, and still allow space for toiletries. We're very fortunate in the 22' Sport to have such a great bathroom, but that doesn't mean it shouldn't be better. I plan to look into expanding this space. Has anyone else taken a look or done anything here?
Hi. We are trying to buy a teak floor for our 2016 Sport 22 from Teakworks4you. I see that you have made an inventory of some possible changes to your 2017. Do you have a template for the bathroom floor by any chance? I bought what they said was a floor matt but it was incorrectly laid out. I can make one but that looks daunting and I am fearful of the curve around the sink cabinet. Can anyone help?

Checking back in.

We have continued to use our dinette extension with good results. That said, I continue to hate this dinette. I'm a slim guy, so it's not the size issue; it's just uncomfortable for me. The seats are too shallow and the foam in the cushions compresses under my 155 pound self to the point that my back hurts after 10 minutes of eating.

We typically eat outdoors for lunch and dinner, but breakfast or on-the-road meals are indoors. I am considering a complete removal and redesign of the dinette with the following thoughts/priorities:

* Completely removable table, preferably with pop out legs so it can be used outdoors if needed, and a fixed mount to keep it secure in the camper and in bed mode.
* A deep bench across the back window wall that is comfortable to sit on and lounge/read.
* Built in extensions for a full sized bed, so that we can eliminate my full size mod.

I think I'm fine if the bench across the back seats 2-3 at the table and nobody fits at the sides. I can have a small folding chair and someone can sit in the aisle of the galley. I already do this with a camp chair when we play games indoors, because I cannot stand to sit on the existing dinette seating. A camp chair is tight, but it fits. I'd probably pick something more appropriate for the space.

I've done searches here to see if anyone has done anything similar but I haven't found it. There used to be a gaucho in some of these, right? A futon-like sofa that folds out to make a full-sized bed would be preferable to having to use the table as a base for the bed. If the table is removable, I could just move it outside or against the door when we made the bed.

Any ideas/photos/links are appreciated!
