We are looking to move into a newer coach and the wife asked me if any have a bathtub in them...I want to think I know a lot about MotorHomes but she caught me by surprise so I thought I would come to the experts...Does any manufacture make one with a tub...?...BTW if its in the Prevost or Newell class then she will have to find someone else...lol...thanks for the help...

Alot of RVs have what is called a "garden tub" its basicly a small tub. I can't fit in one, but my GF likes it...

our current RV, has the garden tub-shower, but our previous RV a pace arrow, had the long tub-shower with the acrylic shower door, i'm 5'7" shes 5' 9" and either one of us could sit in it and take a normal bath, it was a little short for a stretched out long soak, but a full set down bath was no problem ( no knees in the face ), most of the time we just took showers, but occasionally one of us would want to sit and soak a little, take the ache out of the bones and muscles. we lost the big bath when we got this RV with the walk around queen bed, in same size RV 31ft

so YES they are available, it all revolves around the floor plan.

IF your shopping new, choose the ones with the bath tub floor plan, then pick the one best suited for you from those


Options, always have options, and the journey goes much smoother

my chieftain has a tub/shower about 44 inches long. My SIL tried out one of those garden tubs and said that her knees hit her chin.

The tub and shower in my 97’ Eagle takes up about 55” of space. I’ll never use the tub but, like the extra space it provides.

However a large shower would have been sufficient plus it would have given me more storage in the rig or at the least open up the commode area a bit.

Our Bus has a garden tub. Not the biggest in the world, but not bad. Look around a bit and be prepared to try the fit, but there are some.

There are some Super C manufacturers that build to order and give you a residential tub feature. Other than that I think the Garden Tub is the only production RV style. Ever thought about getting one of those inflatable hot tubs......blow it up, plug it in and in 18 hours you have 100 degrees.

A buddy of mine put one in a trailer he used to haul behind the motorhome but it seemed like a lot of trouble for a hot bath.

We went to an RV show last year in Boston. The American Eagle had a rear bath suite with a full size tub.

My Bounder has a bathtub, It's not full size but big enough to use. I think you can find several when you start to look.
