Options for the bathroom

We have a 73 Overlander that needs a complete overhaul. We've gutted the trailer and are starting to repair and replace. I'm doing so prelim research while husband repairs chassis, replaces floor etc.

What options are there for bathroom renovations? Does anyone ever replace the shower/tub unit or is a fresh coat of epoxy paint the only way to go?

Thanks! Nadine

Ours was cracked, so we replaced everything. We also rearranged the bathroom as ours was/is in the rear of the trailer and we didn't want the sink under the back window anymore. The only thing still in the original spot is the toilet. We put in a step tub and are happy with it. We spent some "quality time' with cardboard box mockups to figure out our arrangement.

Hi Kay,

Where did you find the replacement? Was it an aftermarket "remake" or something entirely new / different? Did you replace the sink/countertop as well?
Thanks, Nadine

We put our own together. Hubby is a pretty good woodworker, so we worked up our own stuff. Thread is "Little Girl Refurb" under '72 Sovereigns if you want to take a look. None of it is AS stock. Actually, that is true for our whole trailer now.... but we like it.

If the tub/shower and sink are in half way decent shape I would repair any defects with fiberglass and paint using Krylon plastic paint. A couple with 7 kids has used the Krylon paint on their renovations and it has worked well for them. I used epoxy and wish that I used Krylon.
