hi- I doubt you'll find a pre-fab shower unit that would fit the curve of your walls. You can get just the shower base and then fashion some waterproof walls around it, or just a curtain like I did. Alum. walls would certainly look good, I think! good luck- tim

Look at RV Shows..

If you go to local RV show or dealers with lots of inventory, the stickers from the manufacturers are still on the shower stalls that are installed as complete units. I think Indiana Fiberglass is one of the larger makers, including the circular units. It is unlikely, though, that a rectangular unit will work with curved side walls in Airstream well, so you may have to start with shower pan from Home Depot or Lowes, and work with aluminum sheet on side walls to make your own... I've never seen one made of aluminum...

In Theory, there's no difference between Theory and Practice, but in Practice, there is usually a difference...

RV parts suppliers carry various types of prefab bath and shower bases that you could use as a start for making your own shower enclosure. I am pretty sure that someone on the forums would have made and enclosure using aluminum. I have seen one that used copper and others that have used various types of plastic. One place to check out is the following RV supply place:

Leading the WORLD in RV Parts Sales - RV PARTS OUTLET

Just type shower in the search window on the right to see what they have available. There are other places that carry such things too. RV products tend to be a bit more compact than ones that you would find at Home Depot but you may be able to find something that works there too (a shower pan not the whole thing).

Only he who attempts the ridiculous can achieve the impossble.
