Bathroom items

Ok, so I pretty much have everything needed for my escape, except the bathroom area. I have never had a combined area like the escape bathroom. So what all is needed and how do you keep the things you want kept dry!

Any ideas on the bathroom?

There is a shower curtain provided and you can also leave your towel outside the enclosure until needed.Everything else can get well inside.

never in doubt, often wrong

We have a small tall narrow plastic container with lid, as can be found many places, with bath items such as toilet chem packs, tp, wipes that can be used instead of showering that are sold at RV places, and more.

The shower curtain is apparently a "half size" (length wise) that can be purchased at Wallyworld etc. Its durability is suspect, as it isn't very thick.

I use hotel soap and hotel shampoo bottles, so these fit OK behind/in the tiny sink. A more stylish approach would be the "stay station" or similar suction cup solutions that hold 'em. I have a shaving kit bag for holding toothpaste, brush, floss etc. in a cupboard.

Wet towels dry nicely in the kitchen area, but a large suction hook(s) above the toilet area would be OK too. Microfibre for sure and a smaller microfibre towel for drying shower wall.

Most would recommend the Oxygenics shower head, but the stock one did ok for me. Ask me later if I replaced it.

Small squeegee is handy for fast removal of water on the walls, followed by quick wipe with sponge or better microfibre towel.
I drag some of the shower curtain over top of the toilet to keep it from getting too wet. But, if it does get wet, I just think of it as cleaning the bathroom.

ETI sells a packet that has a small caddy plus some extra suction cups. The caddy is handy for items not bothered by water. I use Dr Bronners Peppermint liquid soap so there's no fighting slippery bar soap. The shower comes with a covered TP holder so don't worry about that getting wet. I also keep a small spray bottle of water in there for obvious reasons.

We have found the suction cup hooks don't stay for very long so we have used the stick up hooks that can be removed by simply pulling on the tab below the hood. We hung a mesh holder that holds all our bathroom items from these hooks. It has held very well. The only suction cup item remaining is our mirror which as faired fairly well but still come down from time to time. Hope that helps.

Take care and enjoy!

Hi Linda
We use a bathroom door Caddy (wire) along with pair of Command Strip Razor holders for the toothbrushes and paste. The Caddy hangs on the door which being behind the curtain keeps the contents from getting wet. We did replace the plastic curtain with one of the water proof fabric ones, had to make it a couple inches longer as it came up just short of the door way lip. We had to buy 2.

For the Caddy I needed to use some rubber weatherstripping to build up the hook for the thin trailer door, enough so it does not rattle and bang around as you travel.

Put a couple of the Command Bathroom towel hooks above the toilet but so far we don't use them. Have 2 Umbra hook sets mounted just outside the door that work better.

We use a squeegee and a towel to dry the place down after use. Also have some marine hard rubber floor squares cut to size, unfortunately the name alludes me at the moment.
Happy Motoring

We use a ShamWow (Google it) for drying the shower area. Said to hold 10 times it's weight in water. Worked so good that we got rid of our squeegee at home and use one in the home shower also!
