Hi all,
I am building a small camper and looking for different ideas on building the shower/toilet combo section. The space available is 2'x4' for the bathroom. I was thinking of purchasing a shower/toilet shower pan but I can't find any. Anyone know where I can pick one up or have any different ideas? I was also curious as to why are there step/seat shower pans? You actually sit to take a shower?
Thanks,
Renato

You could form it in sheetmetal or plywood then bedliner it. That is my plan. The seat in the one piece fiberglass factory showers is a fancy dancy way to deal with the side of the pickup bed. My ideal camper is on a flatbed and much rather have the floorspace than the seat. PortaPotties and cassette toilets rule. George

The seat is mostly due to the fact that there insn't enough room for a grown person to take a shower in the space provided. So they compromise by giving you a seat to keep you from falling down while doing the contortions necessary to get clean in that little area.

I would just install a shower and use a porta-potti. The last one I bought had no metal parts so if it gets wet in the shower it doesn't hurt anything. I still use it a couple of times a year when I go tent camping. A medium sized unit lasted my wife and I 3-4 days and can be dumped in any toilet or down a sewer drain. Very easy and clean and leaves more room for a larger grey water tank. My camper came with a conventional RV toilet but I'd much rather have either space for a porta-potti or a cassette toilet and a larger grey tank.

The reason for the step in the wet baths is that there is usually something (like the top of the black tank) underneath.
