Bathroom Wall Protection

Since i got my camper i havent used the shower (88 16ft). Mostly because the wall on the back of the rig is in very good shape since the people i bought it from never used it either. I just dont trust the slightly vinyl feeling wall paper over what is clearly luan. Especially because there is a seem about 2 feet up with a piece of trim at the curve of the wall. I understand that the shower curtain goes all the way around 3 side but try telling other people that.. I plan to caulk basically every seam in the bathroom but would still like more protection on that wall.

Has anyone used some type of wall covering to further waterproof the wall?

Ideally im looking for something one piece i could apply to the wall and then caulk the seam in the corner where the factory plastic enclosure material is.

Hi Dave,

I have not used one of the older camper showers, so I may be off base on this.

I agree with your thoughts, if that wall papered wall is exposed to water, I myself would not trust 1988 year vinyl wall paper to be water proof. It may be, but I have had to deal with too much water damage repair so I am coming from that point of view.

The lumber yards do sell white (or clear) plastic sheets that you may be able to glue on and then seal up. If you can post some pics, of your setup, we may be able to think of some other ideas.

Hope this helps and let us know how this comes out.

John

Shower

We have an 89 Saturn 16 foot and we installed an outdoor shower and use that instead of the indoor shower. It was a simple install and you can buy an inexpensive pop up shower on Amazon to use for privacy. You then can use the indoor shower area for extra storage. Just an idea.

Many campgrounds will not allow you to dump graywater from a shower (or any discharge water) directly on the ground. You must be self-contained or use the campground facilities. I, personally, would not be happy pulling into a campground to find soapy water residue, hair, or anything else that comes from showering, on the ground at my site.

Sorry, we are weekend dry campers and didn't think of campgrounds. We camp by the lake or beach on BLM with the kids and use the shower to get the sand off. Now that I read your reply, I can see the confusion.

Sorry for the rant. I'm at the other end of the spectrum. I rarely dry camp, and when I do it's usually at a racetrack where there are no beaches. I have, however, used my outside shower to rinse off sand from the campground beaches on me and my stuff though. One question. What's BLM?

BLM is the federal Bureau of Land Management. They administer thousands of acres out west. Wish we had some of those lands around here.

Thanks. Might get out that way in a couple of years. After my wife retires. At least that's the plan.
