Shower curtain

Has anyone installed a shower curtain in the 19?

This is one lonesome thread, so...
Even though mine is a 17B, so I'm not strictly on topic...
The shower curtain that comes with the trailer is very basic. I thought about replacing it with something more decorative. Since the trailer is called Toad, I found shower curtains with a toad motif online. They cost $75 plus shipping.
Thought about how much time I or anyone else spends looking at the shower curtain and decided to save my money.

For those who haven't seen the bathroom in person yet...the 19 comes with a very thin, white shower curtain. It is too long and bunches up some at the floor, especially next to the toilet where the floor of the bathroom steps up. The shower curtain is also wider than it needs to be, and all that extra plastic tends to accumulate water that takes some drying time post-shower.

The shower curtain is an absolute necessity because without it water runs down the inside of the bathroom door and out onto the floor of the aisle. From there it heads toward your husband's socks where he is sitting at the dinette. Wink, wink.

On our current trip, the shower curtain tore through the hanging hole at its front edge. So I sliced off a vertical strip of the curtain about 6 inches wide and now there's a fresh hanging hole at the front. As the next holes gradually tear away, I'll be slicing off more of the curtain until we have the narrowest width of shower curtain that still functions well. Eventually I guess we'll purchase a new curtain with reinforced holes and trim it to size from the start.

Robin didn't like the very thin, minimal shower curtain either. When we looked at it, we realized that the sliding mechanism at the top was unique to our Escape and not easily duplicated at the Shower Curtain Store. She bought another that was designed as a replacement for your home shower. To install it, she cut the top off the original equipment curtain and the new curtain. She then sewed the new curtain to the top of the original curtain so that the new curtain would install properly. She also cut the new curtain to better fit the Escape. It turned-out great and works much better. The sewing was not difficult at all.

The stock shower curtain in our 19 was very flimsy and prone to tearing. So, Kathy, who is a very good seamstress, shopped around and found a regular bathroom curtain but this one is a bit unique. It has a print of an outhouse on it. She re-built it to fit the 19's bathroom leaving the outhouse in plain view when closed. Looks fabulous.

We also replaced our curtain with a nylon one, but we got one big enough to cover the door and also to drape across in front of the toilet area (that corner is held up by a stick on hook).
This works great for us as the whole bathroom isn't soaked after our showers and dries quickly.

Hi: All... We have the exterior shower on our "Escape Hatch". Doesn't require a shower curtain... but I haven't had the nerve to go out and use it yet!!! Alf

A couple more years, and you won't care at all about stuff like that anymore.
