Shower floor

Has anyone used the product called Dri-Dek? I saw it on the Casita Club website. I think it would be a good idea. There were positive comments, and it appears the smaller ones could totally dry off inside the wet bath.
https://www.dri-dek.com/index.html If you decide to try this, there are some caveats. Check out their website first.
Since it looks simple, I may even be able to do it!
Peace and Sunshine
Sandra

Re: Shower floor

Looks interesting.. What we do is totally lo-tech.. we use these Blue Shop towels that are super absorbent and just wipe down the shower floor (they are re-usable since their stronger than paper towels).. We then have a bathroom rug/mat that keeps the dirt off the floor and just take it out when we shower..

Re: Shower floor

I really don't see something like the Dri-Dek being a huge benefit. Maybe for traction, but not so much for dryness. Water would likely stay under them for quite a while unless real good air circulation was provided. I would do like Jeff, or just get a good artificial chamois rag, super absorbent, soft and dries out fairly good too. I do have to admit not seen it in person, nor have I talked to someone who has.

Re: Shower floor


I was thinking that one could dress after drying the rest of the shower then step out and lift the deck and dry the floor last. I for one, like the warmth generated and prefer to face the cooler temperatures clothed.
Thanks for the input!
Peace and Sunshine.

Re: Shower floor

Sandra..

I think that you'll find out that the shower way too tiny to dress in.. you'll probably just wrap a towel around yourself and pop into the trailer to get ready..

Re: Shower floor

Hi Sandra,
We used the Dri-Dek in our Casita, and plan to use them when we pick up or Escape in March. They work great, and drain well (no need to pick up and dry). They keep your feet dry when you're drying off and protect the floor when you need to use the toilet. They are very easy to fit as well. They'll protect your bath floor and last a long time.

Re: Shower floor

Does anyone know if they are sold locally (in Canada) or just out of Florida?

Dear Jeff,
I plan to shed a few pounds, so hopefully I can get some things on before I step out. Just wishful thinking on my part.
