Retractable shower door

Not sure of the feasibility and it's not cheap but ...
check out this link.

SHUB - RVs/Boats - Newline International

Noticed Jeff had something like it showing on his motor home video tour. There's probably more brands out there but I wouldn't mind one. I hate having a wet curtain hanging there especially when you're on the throne seat!

Looks like the same idea as our screen doors. Looks like a good idea if it can be mounted properly without losing much space. Particularly if it can dry rapidly and no mold or mildew would make it a desirable addition. It doesn't solve the "dry toilet area" goal of mine however. I'm going to be trying the "wrapping shower curtain" idea. That however doesn't eliminate the wet curtain issue. C'est la vie!

Reading the info closely, it looks like it will self sqeegee! And it looks easy to install. I wonder if Escape would install them for those that are building theirs. Judging from the price of glass shower enclosures for "sticks and bricks", it appears to be a bargain! Good thoughts, Donna.

Yes this model is the self squeegee one and no mold or mildew.

As a side note, the STUGVIK accessories from Ikea(soap dish and large basket) I installed several months back are a success in the bath area. They mount securely and are very heavy duty. I also installed the one pictured below, which is actually described as a toilet roll holder. Instead I mounted it beside the toilet, close to and pointed towards the back wall. Makes an excellent tieback for the shower curtain and keeps it tucked nicely away, even when wet! 8)

I'm too old to worry about it.

If you've never seen it before, you won't know what it is.

Hi Alf

I don't recognize it either because I don't wear my glasses in the shower....

But truly, it replaces the shower curtain. Y'all close the shower door, don't you?

Hi: PGDriver... We have two showers with our Escape 5.0. Never used the inside one and never had the nerve to use the outside one!!! Alf

Hi Alf

We use our inside one all the time, Reace really does build a nice shower...
Like you we had an outside one installed as part of our build but have never used it.
Just wondering do you think Reace has had anyone request a bidet in a trailer...

We've used the outside shower many times for washing hair. Toss an all-weather mat from the RAV on the ground so dirt doesn't splash up. Saves getting the bath wet.

Our outside shower hasn't been used yet. Maybe some day when my hair grows back.

I assume that outside showers are more commonly used to wash off sand from people wearing swimsuits, and mud from boots, than for complete body showers. Of course, there are shower tents to provide privacy for the latter case.

Outside showers are handy if you're dry camping, and want to extend your gray water holding tank's life. Using a small table and a basin, we've even washed dishes using it, if there is a gray sump nearby.

I ordered a quick pop up shower tent and am going to try it with our outside shower next week. I'll let you all know how it went.
