I am restoring a GT. The bathroom is all one stall, meaning the toilet, sink and shower are all together. I would like to turn the closet (which is right next to the bathroom) into a shower.

Where in the world would I begin looking for a shower unit? It has to fit the rounded ceiling and I need something watertight. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

By the way, this is my first time restoring a trailer!

And the forum mislabeled the title for this thread. It's supposed to be "Shower".

The plastic shower unit used by Airstream has the roof curve and a bench over the wheel cutout. I'm sure it's expensive, but maybe a dealer can get the info for you. Try searching the internet for them—someone has to make them for Airstream and you may be able to get them cheaper. Make sure you have room for the drain underneath.

You could make one. Home centers sell the 1/8 shower wall stuff. Just rivet it to the side wall and glue it to the walls. Now the bottom may be a little hard. try and rv dealer.

May you have at least one sunny day, and a soft chair to sit in..

Making the walls shouldn't be that difficult, but you might have to have the shower base/pan fabricated. Maybe have a stainless steel fabricator make you one? I'm sort of dealing with the same issue right now.

I'm completely rebuilding the formerly wet bath in our 71 Tradewind; I plan to make the shower pan using 1/4" plywood w/ epoxy and stitch & glue marine construction. This has worked very well for small boats and a shower to me is just an inverted boat . The wall were already largely waterproof; they'll get caulked, of course. There will be a shower curtain with a waist-high "keeper" rail on the inside to keep the water off the sections of wall that are merely water resistant (.e.g window, etc). I decided to run the water supply plumbing (PEX, red & blue) in the open.

I am also going to convert my wet bath in my 71 GT into a separate shower and bath. I am tring to figure out how to maximize such a small space to fit a shower pan. I don't think 24"x24" will be small enough. I'll post some pics when I get started. Please post some pics of y'alls progress so I know what I am getting into when I get to that project.
