I have to agree with rolling rhoda about this germ thing. I think all this sanitizing has made us more likely to catch something.

Now 'bout the BR. We have one in our MH. Toilet in a room by itself with a door. Shower and sink on the other side and you can open the BR door and it makes for one big room. That was a selling point for us...we wanted a big bathrm. Too many have the sink practically in front of the toilet or a toilet sitting in such a way as one person said "well I can do my business in there but have to have a leg in the hall to do the paperwork!" We've had our MH 7 yrs and still haven't found one we like better.

Had all the items, sink, shower and toilet in one room in our Jayco Eagle 215SD for 18 years and it was crowded, even for normal sized folks. When looking for our new FW, I was thinking about trying to get one with the toilet in its own enclosure. We have a fairly new house and the master bath has the toilet in its own room and we have to, heaven forbid, touch the door handle before getting to the sink. That hasn't seemed to bother any of us that have used it, up to now. We didn't get the separate toilet room in our new FW because it didn't come in any of the outfits that we looked at buying. Suck it up, you'll live a long time if that's the only problem you have.

For those that like the sink near the toilet, be sure to put the lid down before flushing.

That way you will experience less contamination of your toothbrush from the aerosol plume effect!

We specifically look for an RV with the sink outside the commode room so that someone else can be using the sink while someone is in the commode room. It's called multi-tasking. The OP must use that single ply RV toilet paper.


DITTO, but settled with sink in bathroom, and wish it wasn't. A sink elsewhere provides more flexibility, especially when one has to go and the other is using the sink area.

I can't believe they put sinks in the bedroom! That was a deal breaker for me. I have two sinks, one with the toilet and the other next to the shower.


Same here!

I like the layout in our A. It's a split with the sink and potty together and the shower across the hall. With the door wide open and latched it becomes a big all inclusive room. Our MH is only a 30ft'r so this make good use of the available space. And of course there are only two of us these days and we get along just fine. Just my 2 cents.

Our first coach had commode in its own room with sink outside the door across the hall from the shower - split bath. We liked it a lot. Current coach (see signature) is getting a bit long in the tooth but commode with sink in the middle of the coach and shower and sink in the rear of the coach really in the bedroom. we love it!

Had to have the sink with the commode as the rear sink is not readily accessible when the slide is in.
