1971 Safari Bathroom Remodel

Good evening.

Has anyone changed a wet bath to a shower bathroom? I know it will be tight, but I have a real problem with the wet bath issues. Also, there is a fairly good-sized hole in the existing bathroom pan/floor, so we are going to have to do a repair on it if nothing else. I am willing to have a tiny, oval stainless steel sink in a tiny cabinet to gain the small shower. I'm thinking a 24x24 shower pan. The tall cabinet will definitely have to come out to make room.

Any thoughts on this? We are thinking of making this a winter project.

We just bought our first Airstream and love it, but this is one thing that I'd really like to change. We are not die-hard keep it original people -- we bought our "baby" to use and to have some comfort while enjoying our countryside and fellow streamers as we meet them.

Thanks in advance for taking the time to reply.

That's an interesting idea, we too are new AS owners. We bought our '71 Safari Twin in April of this year and just had the pleasure of taking it out on its maiden voyage Labor Day weekend. We are also not purest and more interested in comfort and "campability" that might actually be a new word I'm not sure. Anyway, I would be very interested in knowing what other mods y'all might have done or are thinking of doing.

Are you keeping the tambour?

Check out the bath in the 17' Safari Sport. It's built in the same space you have to work with in the 71 you've got.
The big problem is going to relocate the battery charger and fuse panel that is now inside the tiny closet in the wet bath. Since your floor is rotted, you will have to rip a lot of this out anyway. You may also need to move the battery. This would also be a good time to replace the toilet, black water tank, sink,.... well everything in the bath.
I never liked the wet bath either.
