Rebuilding my shower

The airstream project is slowing coming together now it's getting time to start focusing on the shower. I've looked over number of styles and I really love the look of the showers in the landyatchs. Which is a frameless design.

My plans are to use a 1/4 plexiglass and frameless hinges and latch. So looking for suggestions,idea, research.

I don't think you will be happy with plexi. It's just too "wanky" (technical term). What I mean is that it will twist and warp as you open the and close the door. Plus it probably will get junked up with the soaps and cleaners used.

What material is used in the Land Yacht?

Rebuilding my shower

1/2" Lexan would probably be firm in a frameless design...

But it would cost a mint I imagine.

1/2" X 48" x 96" Clear MAKROLON GP (general purpose) Polycarbonate Sheet - Film-Masked

Superat stultitia.
The fact that I am opinionated does not presuppose that I am wrong......
