Outside shower

Has anybody found a replacement for the very high quality plastic outside shower? The door on the compartment won't stay shut on my 2011 23fb, and I'm not sure I can afford the genuine Airstream parts.

(Was that too much sarcasm?)

You can get the white version from any RV supply place, and paint it yourself.

Maybe some people didn't get it, possibly you can notch it up a little more.

Terry, most of the shower replacement kits you mention, are NOT the same as the AS.

I honestly don't know where they source theirs, but it IS a bit better.

Years ago, I installed an outside shower in my Casita, and searched high and low for the best quality, and yes, all the RV sources had them, but they were worse than what AS uses.

Looking around the internet it looks like they are all about the same. If you could find a metal one you'd have to ensure that it didn't come in contact with the aluminum and start corrosion. Buy and pain as previous poster suggested.

Instead of "very high quality" try "awesome and superbly crafted" that might help move the sarcasm meter.

"State of the art, high quality, ultimate in fine Chinese craftsmanship" should just about peg out the sarcasm-o-meter.

Sarcasm is just one of the many services we offer here at Air forums. Glad we could help.

I didn't think about painting it which is strange since I just painted our vent hood cover. The paint was peeling off the equally well designed plastic vent cover so I pulled it off and painted it bright red. My biggest issue with the shower compartment door is the fact that it warps and won't fit flat in the box. Of course I'm sure this is by design.......I'm just not sophisticated enough to appreciate the detail

FWIW, Airstream Inc now makes a stainless steel outside shower (as opposed to the plastic boxes/doors most of us have). I guess it's an option like the other stainless products Airstream sells (think of the furnace outside vent and the hot water heater outside vent). I saw one installed on a trailer recently. It looked good. The owner had it installed at the Alumapalooza a month ago. I didn't ask how much it cost. Russ

There is also a stainless steel range vent, when you get tired of viewing the red vent cover.

That's great. I've seen the SS water heater, range vent, etc but I didn't realize they were making a SS shower door. I've been putting off upgrading the other items, but I will definitely upgrade the shower.

The stainless steel outside shower "package" that Airstream sells includes the box, door, knobs, and shower hose/head, not just the door. Maybe they have a separate door they sell. Russ

It's not on the AS store yet. I'll have to call. Do you happen to know if they will sell it direct from AS or do you have to order from a dealer?
