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
Can't resist, tried really really hard but just couldn't...
Read the second line of Donna's first line again.
