I would imagine the early 5.0's had the same bathroom as the 17B's, as the single axle 5.0 is based on that model. When the 19 came along in 2009 it had a bigger bathroom/shower stall. That bathroom/shower stall is used in the current single axle 5.0's, at least it is in my 2012, 5.0.
I've also owned a 17B, so by experience, I know that bathroom is smaller both in length and width as well as height than the one currently used in the 5.0 (and 19).
