Just some friendly thoughts.

Beautiful job - really enjoying watching this thread........

Thanks Ken, I did seal both top and bottom of the plywood and also sealed the edges, this is just added protection, or control. I do know that when I do get a leak that it will not go under the finished floor. I have had friends that have had to rip up there floor to trace a leak, its my early leak protection.............

Toastie... I'll be better able to picture it after it's up I suppose... what are you using to line the shower with? Was this a standard door from Home Depot? Will there be a inner and outer "finish" which abuts the studs around the frame?

The door is made by Sterling, model 1500D-27S, EZ find H50, was on sale for $89.00 at Home Depot. The interior walls will be covered with Formica charcoal boomerang #6942-58, the material against the the alum. wall is from Home Depot, it’s a vinyl light grey type material, Home Depot uses it in all of there bathrooms, very flexible. The Formica wall will set against the outside wood frame of the shower door and will be flush with outside shower trim.

Ahh! That IS what I pictured... I just wasn't sure. Just wondering... if one were to drill big holes in the wood and then cover it up with the formica and inner covering, would the holes telegraph through the laminate and plastic insides? I'm thinking of what could make the walls a bit lighter.. although, I'm sure those walls aren't that heavy.

It's funny, I know there's not that much room in a trailer, but that door makes the walls seems so expansive!
Thanks for the info!
Marc

Raised the shower door to be able to service the Hep waterless trap, the trap sets right on top of the shower tank, there will be a removable front panel to service. The 18 gal tank which is in front of the axle is just for the shower only.

Wow Toastie, that looks wonderful! Better than factory fit on the curves too! What will you use to seal the inside to the wall above. I'm also curious, is the shower pan in already? Does the wall fit inside the lip of the pan?
