Indoor shower ideas

http://accessoires-camping-car.fr/produit.php?cat=196&souscat=265&pid=3573


Short of having SMB gut the interior and retrofit a shower stall what works best for indoor showers with the limited space we all have?

Ease of setup, drain, tear down and storage are all top priorities I would imagine.

I was about to install an interior shower in my ambo but couldn't quite make it fit. The plan was fairly simple. I was gonna build an Aluminum bottom drawer about 2'x2' with 6" sides and either a center drain lining up with a floor plug or a side drain like the 1st picture above. Store the curtains in the drawer when not in use and hook around the ceiling fan when showering. I'm still thinking about ways to do it but since I changed my original floor plan it might never happen... But hey, I got 2 outdoor showers

Cheers
David

How come they never show a hairy fat guy taking a shower in advertisements? Are chicks in bikinis the only ones who bathe?........in their bikinis?

A side drain would seem problematic, as it would be hard to get all the water to flow out via gravity, and then you'd be left with a shallow puddle in the tray that you'd have to dispose of somehow. A spill just waiting to happen.

Someone on the forum once mentioned using a mop sink as a shower pan, which I thought was a good idea. Small, sturdy, with high sides...

Great idea! Thanks for posting that. I bet that's a lot more sturdy than the thin RV style shower/tub pans.

removable

I have been using a mop sink for years the sides make it easy to keep the curtain contained. It also is good for laundry dogs etc.
It is removable. The drain is under the plug where you put the table leg.

How does this one drain?

Or do you just carry the whole sink out and pour it?

I took out the thing that holds the table leg (which was in a body brace) and installed a pvc coupling with a reducer bushing on top that fits the sink and on the bottom I used another reducer busing that was 3/4 and a 3/4 galvanized pipe elbow to a length of galvanized pipe back to holding tank.
I switched to galvanized due to the heat from the exhaust.
I will be working on the van this weekend prepping for a trip out west I will try and get some pics.

I used a mustee double sink but for years I used a 24x24 to save space.
I cut a 3/4 piece Advantech for the bottom and filled it with great stuff for support.
