We have a dry bath but the shower has a bench seat that is reasonably generous so we don't have any issues.

Try that in a 16' Bambi built before 2013. The bathroom door opens to the outside door.I find that is exactly the moment my wife decides to open the outside door of the Airstream and come inside. It is always a thrill (although not for the poor person who has to see the show ). We have worked out a system to avoid the show....

@BruceB, had to laugh at your reply - before the Airstream and shear luxury by comparison, showers were a bucket, hose, and sprinkler head rigged to hang on the outside of the bed camper. In the Arizona boonies on a hunting trip with no one around for miles, my dad got caught in a mid-shower drive-by, performing the full Monty, for a car load of nuns headed to the adjacent reservation for early Sunday services. It was 'the' camping story retold for a decade and resulted in a curtain rail addition. At least that homespun solution had plenty of head room!

I was 6'-4" a few years back. Now I'm around 6'-3" and I guess getting shorter with age. I hit my head on the entry door sometimes. I sometimes brush my hat on the bottom of the ac. The shower has a little clearance above my head, enough to wash my hair. But, reaching my feet in the shower is impossible unless I use the seat. DW say it sounds like I'm wrestling someone when I shower.

Our Classic has an extra outlet for a hose. I thought this was for washing sandy feet, but if worse comes worse...

Our trailer does have a seat in the shower. I thought it was really designed that way to fit over the wheel well, but it is a nice feature.
