This is my "tentative" shower base with shower seat and with plenty of head room. The shower base can be removed and sent to the local metal fabricator for stainless steel but the problem with that is service to the drain after it is installed. Could cause a major problem in the future.

The shower drain will be in front of the toilet, right? And then extend toward the rear to tie into the black pipe sticking up out of the floor behind the toilet in your previous post? Just trying to picture it all in my mind.

Could you have an access panel cut into the front side of the plywood - the side that's toward the center of the trailer? Hard to see if there would be enough room under the floor of the shower to let you get a hand or tool into the shower drain if you ever needed to. Just a thought.

I haven't solved this problem in my design yet - what's your solution for the "TP in the shower" problem? My TP either has to be outside the bathroom, or get wet when I shower!

Maybe a shelf up above the level of the shower head? This has to have been a problem as long as wet baths (or "shoilets" as my friend with a Winnebago calls them) have been around. Surely there are some solutions out there?

Well, I was thinking of lining my shower stall with aluminum sheet, then making an aluminum drip cover for the TP holder. But, being temporarily AS-less I don't have a place to try it out.

hey Wabbit, yes, I have access thru the belly pan to drain, that's not the problem, the problem is at the gary tank end. Since this tank is only for the shower, and, if I have a problem at that joint, I can drop the whole tank and replace with new without effecting the whole system. If I do have a leak, the floor should never see water.

In the modern version of the "wet bath" where the toilet and shower are one - there is a shower curtain that is pulled across the door and over the wall with the TP to protect both from getting wet. The door specifically to prevent the water from running under the bottom edge. You could cover the toilet to keep it dry but we never do. Never had wet TP in 4 years.

Built the table top today, the size is, width 32", length 40". I used 1x3's to form a frame support to prevent swaying. Will install formica and then band with 3/4" polished aluminum edging.
