The door is made by Sterling, model 1500D-27S, EZ find H50, was on sale for $89.00 at Home Depot. The interior walls will be covered with Formica charcoal boomerang #6942-58, the material against the the alum. wall is from Home Depot, it’s a vinyl light grey type material, Home Depot uses it in all of there bathrooms, very flexible. The Formica wall will set against the outside wood frame of the shower door and will be flush with outside shower trim.

Ahh! That IS what I pictured... I just wasn't sure. Just wondering... if one were to drill big holes in the wood and then cover it up with the formica and inner covering, would the holes telegraph through the laminate and plastic insides? I'm thinking of what could make the walls a bit lighter.. although, I'm sure those walls aren't that heavy.

It's funny, I know there's not that much room in a trailer, but that door makes the walls seems so expansive!
Thanks for the info!
Marc

Raised the shower door to be able to service the Hep waterless trap, the trap sets right on top of the shower tank, there will be a removable front panel to service. The 18 gal tank which is in front of the axle is just for the shower only.

Wow Toastie, that looks wonderful! Better than factory fit on the curves too! What will you use to seal the inside to the wall above. I'm also curious, is the shower pan in already? Does the wall fit inside the lip of the pan?

Bargman lock

I am one of many people looking for this door handle, and I just stumbled on this posting. My interior handle is different, and ugly. Can you send me a pic of the refurbished door handle? I need to get my mine better looking/working. Does re-chroming remove pitting?

2 Bargman lever with locks in one auction, will have a local locksmith make new keys. Parts will be sent out to be chromed, and hoping to end up with one complete set. Also planning and researching for when the weather breaks here.

Thanks Marc, to seal the wall above I will use silicone, I found a perfect color match both outside and inside. I can’t go with a pan because the gray tank is directly below, need to be able to service. The plan today is to go with a membrane with a removable teak floor. If I would have know when setting the gray tank, I would have designed the tank with a internal trap built inside the tank, maybe on the next one.
