There is a covered tp holder under the sink. With all the storage in the overheads in the 21' you will not want for space.

The 21 comes with a water repellant TP holder. Having used the showers in both the 19 and 21 there is no comparison. The 21 is vastly superior due to the amount of space. It is a much easier process of showering in the 21 because your movement is less restricted.

We find with the 21 we are less concerned about finding campgrounds with showers as it is such an easy process to shower. There are three of us using the shower and we found we needed to plan a few things, such as a "bath mat" upon exit and squeegee the walls upon completion. No problem with enough hot water, we have not done enough consecutive days to determine water needs but I would estimate at least three days.

Towel drying is something we have not yet solved, especially while travelling.

In our old EggCamper we would usually shower in the campground facilities, but the new 21' Escape has such a roomy shower that, in the 25 night trip home from the factory, we used the Escape shower almost exclusively. We are trying to figure out where to put some towel racks so the towels will dry more quickly.

Micro-fiber towels are great; much more absorbant and dry quickly compared to thick cotton ones. Also come with a handy loop built in for hanging on a hook.

The 21' shower has worked out fine. I put Command hooks behind the toilet to dry towels. That also works out well. I took the clear shower curtain out, put in a quick dry curtain. I also divided it in half. I put up a strip in front of toilet across the top and hung the other half of curtain, so toilet and behind it does not get wet. They pull to side and tie back when dried. I used something similar in our Casita and was happy with the set up. Less water to go all over. We alternate using the escape and campground showers, depending on cleanliness of campground. The TP holder really does keep the paper dry!!

Admittedly dumb question... What's a quick dry shower curtain? I see plastic liners, cloth liners, microfiber liners, and even one that's "a unique horizontal woven dobby striped fabric with a water-resistant finish that is similar to an umbrella". Which one is quick dry?

The ones I get are sold at Bed, Bath & Beyond. They are hotel quality and dry almost immediately. They are not that expensive-it is kind of a sheer material. Holds up well.

I think they say hotel quality or quick dry on the package.

My wife has used these "liners" in our house for the last year or so with no outer curtain. Water falls right off, machine washable and they have little suction cups about 1/3 of the way down and 2/3 of the way down to hold the curtain anywhere you want it. I imagine they would work well in an RV, although you might have to modify the size.

curtain rod holders

I attached curtain rod holders overhead at the right and left sides of the shower such as these:
http://www.amazon.com/Closet-Rod-Hol...in+rod+holders
The holders were attached with 3M double faced tape.
A extendable and rotate to lock curtain rod is extended between the holders. Plastic hangers are used to dry wet rain gear and towels.
A second set of end curtain rod holders was installed inside the cabinets on each side under the sink. The curtain holders are moved from the shower and extended under the sink to keep the storage baskets in place while traveling.
The curtain rod holders can be found in most hardware stores.

Two towels are now on order.
Thanks for the tip.
