What you have done there looks great.

I am just saying that a bathroom, historically, has always been designed as a private place, well ventilated, moisture resistant contents, good heating, with good lighting.
When you enlarge this area it becomes more difficult to control all these important design requirements.

If you have females in the family, you may find that occupation time can sometimes go for extended periods of time.

And yes, you will learn to live with it.

All we have between the bathroom and the rear of the coach is the bedroom. I can't imagine a scenario where someone needs to get from the front of the coach to the bedroom so urgently that they can't wait for the bathroom to become vacant.

My wife and I bought this motorhome in 2005 and have been happy with it apart from the lack of storage and counter top space. So, now being retired I decided to do something about it!

Out went the sofa, barrel chair, dinette and most of the carpet. The bathroom door was re-located, a section cut from the bathroom wall and the bathroom floor tiled. The rest of the floor was done with laminate. I made the cabinets from self-assembly oak kitchen cabinets which had to be beefed up a little with glue blocks. The Corian was installed by professionals and turned out to be a good match for the existing counters.

The TV enclosure was made into a storage cabinet and a new TV mounted where the mirror used to be.

This conversion was a lot of work, but has made the motorhome much more liveable for us. If anyone is thinking of doing something similar I am happy to answer any questions you may have.
Different and beautiful.

Well done.

Andy

My first choice of bath placement is a side-aisle design; see photos below. It affords all facilities in one large space, allows for single door privacy and any-time access to the rear of the coach. This particular unit was a major consideration, but for reasons beyond our control, a 40’ wide body became unrealistic.

As our 31’ is only for the two of us, my second choice would be the walk-through. Not sure we'd go the permanent route, as "01 LandYacht” created, but if you slide the bedroom door and pull out the accordion door, it’s reasonable simulation.

We have the walk through bath room in our 33' and find it very user friendly for privacy and love the size of the room for use when doors are closed.

The flooring is Montreal Gun Stock by Dupont.

The lighting may be deceiving. The flooring is not the exact same color as the existing cabinets, but was chosen to complement them.

To remove the sink seems pretty difficult, as access is limited.

Look forward to seeing your pictures!
Getting closer to finishing up, still need to install Corion on backsplash & walls around stove. Here are some pics of sink, table & new upper cabinet doorw with tv. Also a couple pics of plumbing, really went better than I thought it would.

The work looks fantastic! It's gotta feel good!

Sink replacement

Just wanted to mention that I found the most difficult part of changing to a larger single sink was to find one with dimensions that would fit from front to back and wasn't so deep that it couldn't be hooked up with the existing slope of drain. The replacement I used is a Kraus KBU 16, ordered online. If you're thinking of replacing your sink with the same size that you presently have it shouldn't be a problem. The stovetop & existing sink remove quite easily.

Looks good. Real nice looking Corian.

The single sink has the advantage of freeing up some counter space.

I'm curious as to how you shortened the oak doors each side of the new tv.
Did they come apart easily?

Shortening the old doors was my plan originally, but I have a friend who owns a cabinet shop locally and he said it was much easier & cheaper to have new doors built than try to alter the old ones. So the shorter doors are actually new. He also did the Corian for the table & countertop. You know that old saying...it's not what you know, it's who you know? He's helped me out a lot with planning & ideas.

I've just bought a 2001 30' Lan Yacht that I think I'm going to love. It is in nice but not perfect shape. But the previous orginal owners had a problem with the Corian surface attached to the folding stove top cover. When using the back burners it messed up the Corian and it had to be replaced. What is suggested to stop it from doing so again. I only get to cook on road trips so suggestions from more experienced LY's would be gladly accepted.

Make sure it is in full open position, ours was damaged too, but I didn't fix it, waiting to see if it will be damaged more before doing anything with the corian. I did take the top apart straightened some of the metal slide mechanism so that it would work smoother also replaced missing part of the slide. This might have been the reason PO chef didn't put the top up to the right spot. They didn't use it much and had all problems fixed by RV technicians so probably nobody looked at it. When you find cheap source of replacement let us know.

Our unit one year older had it's carpet in the hall and LR, dinette area replaced by AS and they just cut it close to the cabinets and wall, not too neat but all attached items are still in place I replaced the toilet room carpet with tile, I did take out the carpet beneath the commode.
Find a hook carpet cutter so that you can cut from above the carpet. a metal straight edge to keep a straight line and add 1/4 round to finish.
Good luck and remember to keep your fingers behind the cutting blade if you use a regular razor knife.
