Thanks for posting the great pics.

Thanks Tim, there is only one seam and that is where the toilet sets, it would be a challenge to fold/fit into my area, would probably be better off soldering the sides. Going to trim the sides with teak wood then seal for water tight. Will apply a hammer or brushed design to the copper then seal. The copper will not contact any of the aluminum, galvanic reaction, thickness is 0.032” very easy to work with.

Installed toilet to black tank and appears to be plenty of room. Also started mocking up the cabinets.

I love the bathroom. The copper, design, location, everything. You have solved the problem of where to put the bathroom in the 55 Safari. It would be a shame to hide those beautiful polished endcaps in the bathroom. That windowless area behind the door is the perfect solution. The sink cabinet covers the wheel well. Holding tanks just below. Perfect!

Thanks very much, we really like the copper floor, however, if you ever decided to go this way be careful. This is a shower / bathroom with 12v and 120v power. My shower interior walls are covered with a formica and a fiberglass type material. I have only one 120V wire buried inside the aluminum walls (shower area)and that one wire is on a GFI, all receptacle will be on a GFI breaker. The shower really doesn’t touch any of the interior aluminum walls.

Beautiful work as always, thanks for continuing to update with pictures and descriptions. Those speakers are fantastic, and the bath is looking amazing.

too cool! We have two sets (not as shiny as those) in our back yard, one with a white lense like that. We have them around our pool for our stereo out there. Very classy touch!

Assembled, dis-assembled test, took about 5 min’s to take apart, will seal opening’s with a membrane then insulate and then final assembly.
