I have been thinking lately that some of the newer campers with wet baths have really nice functional wet baths in them to the point where I think they are nearly as nice as a dry bath. Generally it seems that camper manufacturers save their largest campers for the dry bath format but I was wondering what it would be like to keep the large format, do a wet bath and then use the extra space inside for something else.

One idea so far is some additional counter space with top and bottom cabinets. A coffee bar type nook where you can leave some appliances out without being on the surface of the main counter top.

What would you do with extra space if you had it?

We have a large 12' Northstar with a DRY bath. Our floorplan already has the "coffee bar" along the back wall with a huge window and cabinets. We love this space and it is precisely where our electronics live and charge, out of the way of the kitchen counter and everything else. So convenient for lots of stuff.

Northwood does this. Compare a dry bath 1150 or 1140 to the wet bath version.

I did own 2 TC - both in 12' size and both with dry bathrooms (never had 1 with wet bath). Both had similar floor plans, but when Fleetwood had rear entrance, Lance had convenient side entrance.
Took me some time to figure out why I am comfortable taking shower in Fleetwood, but miserable taking shower in Lance, even both bathrooms look like exactly the same floorplan.
Finally tape measure proved that Fleetwood shower was 1.5" wider and that made whole World of the difference as the small width difference would allow me turn under the shower without pulling the curtain on my back.
Fleetwood also had very generous countertop space, when Lance lack of such.
So side entrance is convenient on 1 side, but takes the space from other things.
TC are like Space Shuttles. Each fraction of inch can make a difference.

We specifically sought out an AF1140 WB for this. The extra space is a closet that we used for some of our solar equipment (including batteries) and a few large drawers we use for pantry/dry goods.
