Spray-in truck bed liner for shower tank?

Hello all,

I am starting a custom reno on a 62 Safari. I want to build a shower in the rear corner of the trailer. I was pondering the possibility of constructing the tank out of thin plywood and waterproofing it with a sray-in truck bed liner. Has anyone tried this? I will visit a few spray-in dealers today for more info. I would love to hear from anyone with info, pros/cons, or other suggestions.

Thank you in advance.

David

David, I'd call the factory first. I don't see why a current corner bath or wet bath enclosure wouldn't work. Why not go for fiberglass? Lighter, won't rot or attract insects, etc.

It would be non slip!

I don't think I would do it. The wood will dry out and shrink after a few years (a few days if you live where I live) and the seams may crack and leak. I would go with the fiberglass option. The last thing you wank is a leak and then rotting floor under it!
BTW, I had an Inyati liner sprayed into my TV bed. These guys were pros. I would highly recomend them.

Anyone tried the one coat, self-leveling polyeurathane to redo the sink and shower. I have the white coat but this stuff comes in colors and is intended for boat decks. I can't see why it wouldn't work since the discolored fiberglass would be under it. I wouldn't be tearing anything out. I'm looking at Epifanes One Part Mono Urethane or Toplac, out of the Jamestown Distributors catalog. Any suggestions?

Sounds feasible. I know someone who had the deck of his riding lawnmower sprayed after he bought it to prevent rust and I have read of people spraying the floorboard of Jeep CJ5 and CJ7 vehicles. They also claim you can spray the floor of horse trailers. LineX seems to have a finer grain than Rhino Linings which looks more like cottage cheese.

Boatdoc used lineX or one of those brands on his shower. I looked very nice and he claimed it was totally water proof. He is very knowledgeable in these things to say the least. His Argosy is actually one of the finest rigs I have ever seen. The shower was a boat type in that the pan had a sump and the sump had a pump. When you pumped from the sump, the camel got a hump. Sorry, I read Dr Suess to my youngest a lot. But there was a button on the wall in the shower activate the pump. It pumped into the grey tank and he also used the grey tank water to flush his head.

after a dump and used the water from the pump to move the water from the sump to get the dump over the hump-de-dump.


Sorry - could not resist.......
