Why don't we refocus in a different direction? What kind of back brush do people use in their trailer showers? Me? Ann bought a plastic one at the 99 cents store! How about you?

I did not feel an affront either, but I can understand why a statement like "you might as well sleep in a box" could be interpreted as an affront. We must remember that we all have our own preferences, which should be respected by everyone else. Hey, I have an acquaintance that will put a hot dog in a bun with mayonnaise as the condiment of choice. Just because it doesn't meet my tastes doesn't mean it's wrong. And just like we all have different preferences, we all have different triggers and reactions to those triggers. We over-react sometimes. Actually, I didn't view the response as coming from a point of anger, either. I read it as the respondent saying "Hey, wait a minute. I'm entitled to use my property as I see fit." Unfortunately, exchanging ideas on the forum is not like exchanging ideas over a glass of wine sitting around the campfire where statements with the potential to offend can be questioned and clarified immediately. But having been guilty of making written statements that have been misinterpreted, probably because I wrote them hastily, I have come to the conclusion that at least 99% of the members here, while they may offend other members, do not do so intentionally. Just keep in mind that everyone here is different, we all think differently, and we all have a right to our choices. They may not be someone else's choices but each to their own.

There was no offense intended for anything that I said about not using all of the assets in the trailer. The main thought is after doing without in tent camping, these luxuries will be oh so sweet. And in a lot of places where we are going to be, the facilities in the trailer will be our only option. And we are also ordering options in the trailer that we probably won't use, but the next owner will. Loren

Do you keep a toilet seat behind the stove all warmed up and ready to take outside for use on the one holer? A warm seat is very much appreciated by all as I recall from my youth on the farm. Big trouble for the person who forgets to bring it in for the next use.

What we use, is a piece of 1" rigid Styrofoam cut to the shape of a toilet seat on the inside. 1/10 of a second after the skin hits it, it warms right up.

I'm glad I kicked this thread into life again, even if it was just to relay a funny conversation I had.
