There's always Dri-Dek, but I find it hard on my soft feet. YMMV

The shower floor in front of the toilet is only 22" x 28" on a 21? It feels huge in there - must be the way the walls curve out.

I found this package of interlocking mats at Costco for $12-$14 dollars, cut one to fit. Provides a nice cushion.

That stuff looks like it doesn't breathe, Myron. No worries with mold?

It's possible. Too early to tell. Unlikely we'll ever use the shower, though. It lifts out easy enough for drying out. Most important for us is the cushion and non-slip surface.

Not to mention the added warmth too the tootsies for that middle of the night trip.

Now you have me thinking. We rarely use the shower too, and something like this could just be pulled when (or after) the shower is used. Heck, it just needs to be a simple square sized just big enough to put your feet upon.

I have an old folded up bath towel I use the shower pan of my Scamp. Keeps all the dirt and grit off the fiberglass floor, is warm on the bare feet and is easily removed and shaken outside. It too gets washed at the end of a camping trip. I'm likely to do the same in my 5er. KISS

After looking at some items for the shower floor, I think we'll just stick with a bathroom carpet. It's warm on the feet, easily removed when showering, and easy to wash. We'll be carrying 2 for when the first one gets moist. On the trip home from picking up our new trailer, we noticed some pretty heavy condensation below the belly band on the passenger side of the bathroom. We, including Reace, don't know why the condensation was there. It was enough to dampen the carpet. Do any others have problems with condensation in the bathroom?

Paul, our 21 shower floor is 22"x 26". Wonder why the difference?

We use the dri-dek that Donna mentioned. I don't mind the feel on my feet, and it works well for us. When dirty and/or dirt collects underneath, we just take it out and hose it down.
