There are plenty of hi-arc bath faucets out there if you don't need the diverter for the shower. I'm wondering if one could use something like this since it pulls out to 43". Of course you would need to add a middle hole to allow the hose to stick down below the sink along the wall and it might have other issues like spraying too hard to be a practical shower and stick out too far out over the little sink. Not sure - just throwing it out there.

I had been looking at that idea, but am concerned about where and how the hose stows when retracted. It might not look so good either.

We are just going to keep the white original unless it breaks for now . I will take a look though at what Airstream and Oliver uses for future reference. Pat

Pat: Funny, it looks like Oliver uses the concept I'm suggesting. A pull out spray faucet in the bath, but they have a vanity to hide the hose and a larger sink.

Dave haven't looked for awhile . If you slide to next picture showing the towel hanging on the bath cabinet that was was what I remember the shower head was also your sink facet doing double duty . Guess they changed since I last looked . Having the bath they have though the pullout would work great not so much what we have . Wish I could find a stainless corner sink to replace the white one though . Our bath is too small to make a little top to put round one in . Charley (tractors1)was working on that but he hasn't posted yet . I need to stay off of Olivers site that is for sure . Pat

I KNEW you'd like it! Way better and more flexible than that crappy white hose ETI gives ya. I didn't even have them install it as I supplied the hose and showerhead and they put them on during the build.

Won't work for us, since we use the shower. The new unit must have a diverter and a d-spud to attach the shower hose. Still searching...

Laura,
What hose are you referencing? I would be interested in changing out the plastic hose too, as well as the shower head.

This is what we bought and really like it.
Camco 43713 chrome rv shower head kit with on/ off - it's a direct replacement.
