Moving the Bathroom?

Does anyone have any experience with moving a bath to a new location in the airstream...does this require moving the black and grey tanks too...

Can someone give me an over view of what is under the floor plumbing setup looks like and what may be required to move the bath to a new location.

Also, is this just not a practical thing to do.

Judging by the lack of replies, I don't think it is commonly done. Of course, with enough time, effort and money, anything can be done.

I think you would pretty much have to do a complete re-build of much of your Airstream to do this.

Here are some pictures from someone doing a complete restoration. You can see the frame structure under the floor.

I think I would buy one that has the bathroom in the right place before I put that much time and money into it.

Yes I'm moving my bath from the rear to streetside wheel well. This will involve a new black tank and plumbing. As it did not have a gray water tank, that will be new also.

Gennerally not practical. The plumbing systems are designed around the palcement of the bathroom. A shell off restoration would be the time to do it.
