I've been eyeballing this as a upgrade, wondering if the rough opening is the same? Scott

Not sure Scott, Haven't seen the new shower except Jim's picture but it does look a lot smaller then the previous shower.
We didn't order the exterior on our 5.0TA so we have a clean slate for mounting.
Cheers

If you mount it on the curb side the kitchen water supply is easily accessible inside over the wheel wells. According to the website all you need is a 5.5" square hole, a lot smaller than the older style set up.

Thanks Jim, it looks my old school exterior shower is 6.1 X 11". Oh well, I guess I'll just keep using my old ensolite insulation pad for shoulder season protection. Scott

Had a look at my old shower installation and there isn't a "gaping" hole. There is space around the hose, which could be easily caulked, if somehow there were a draft.
As for ease of installation of the new shower, if you put it on the curb side of the 17B you would have to route the water from the driver side where the sink and inside shower are.

Where ever your kitchen is located, simple as that.

That makes sense, that is where the water lines are located, each trailer is different, what may work with one will not work with another. The 19 and 21 and 5.0 TA have kitchens on curb side.

Our 21' shower is on the driver's side which is the standard placement. Or at least it was. Don't know now.

On our 2017 21' we can specify the shower to be drivers side.

Or passenger side (just aft of wheel wells)
