Our 85lb. dog gets her water and food bowl stand put in there. Keeps it out of the way and is easy to move out for a shower

Makes a great place to store the outside screenhouse and the 8x20 rug that go outside as soon as we get there. We camping we use it to store drying towels and bathing suits--much easier once we figured out the hidden hangers!!
It is also great for taking a shower.

Ditto - I recently converted my hamper to a 5 gallon dry wall bucket so that I don't have to dry out the shower every time I use it before the laundry goes back in. At Alumapalooza I saw several campers who were using these buckets as outdoor tables and chairs - with neat little revolving seats in place of the standard lid. I don't know where to find those, but am on the lookout. My second bucket is the hose bucket.

Trick I've learned, fold your dirty clothes before dropping them in the hamper - much more will fit.

I got a nice three rung towel rack at IKEA that I've mounted in the shower which also allows me to hang anything I launder inside and let it dry there - roof vent open and a fan placed inside at the bottom to aid circulation.

Hi, I bought two suction cup towel racks and stuck them in my shower for wet towels to dry, but there is little or no air movement in the shower to dry these towels, especially since they are so close to the shower walls. So I bought a three bar towel rack from IKEA and mounted it in the bathroom, in a way that they should get better air flow and dry better in less time. Note: I haven't been out since I installed this towel rack, so time will tell.

We use it just for showering and when were traveling we put the dishwashing tubs in it. But I like a hot shower and hate having to move stuff around to take one. I also hate a "cluttered" look and the older I get the more I like things neat and everything put in it's place. If it doesn't have a spot in the Bambi I don't bring it.

Yep, those 5 gal. buckets..that would be Larry and I. We got the swivel lids at a sporting goods store. (Gander Mountain) They make great makeshift coolers, good totes, footstools and extra seating inside if we have a crowd and it rains. Kids love them.

I store the laundry bag in the shower too. It also keeps the shower shoes etc. for when we choose to go to the park showers instead of using our fresh water up.

While I can understand why folks utilize the shower stall for storage etc. I am kind of like blmitch5, we used to keep a bunch of stuff in the SOB shower and started to when we got the Airstream. But I put my foot down (size 13) and we decided that we are not going to keep the AS as cluttered up (shower or otherwise). So now the only thing in the shower (when it is not being used) is the bathroom trash can. For ME it's much nicer entering a trailer without a bunch of stuff piled up, others might not care and that's fine and I can understand the cat pan/dog food etc. Shower stall storage or otherwise, the items we stopped carrying we are now finding we don't even miss. The few other bulky shower stall items, such as a pail that I use to pour rinse water in the toilet when dumping (along with a Johnny Chock), now ride in the back of the truck (we have a cap/topper) and are stored in the garage between trips, instead of the trailer. Only takes a couple of minutes to pop them in the truck before a trip (I keep a checklist on the garage wall of things I MIGHT want to take depending on where we are going).

Now if we could just finish de-cluttering the house, we're getting there though. Going back to blmitch5 again, I am finding as I get older that in general the less stuff/clutter/nick nacks etc. I have, the less stress I have, both at home and in the trailer.

BTW, I don't want to highjack this thread, but if you are interested in de-cluttering I can recommend a really good book to get you started, "Clutter Busting" by Brooks Palmer.

Now back to your regularly schedule discussion.....
