Lockdown Camper Van Build - not even slightly LR, but potentially useful bits!

Or just put the drain in the middle!

As you might imagine, I did consider that!  However, for expediency I used an off the shelf (fairly nasty) plastic shower tray, which has flat spots in two corners for the plug hole.

I originally intended to make the wholecubicle out of 0.5mm 304 Stainless sheet with a folded & welded shower tray, sink etc.  I was worried though that it might look a bit 'institutional' - so I went with white plastic!  I still have it in the back of my mind to re-fit the whole thing in stainless!

I considered Fibreglass too - but my previous experience with it, a sort of rat-bonnet, said stick to what you know!

Having seen what is available in Japan, I can see something like this already existing !

I mean if only you knew someone who could do fibreglass. :ph34r:

To be fair I don't blame you for using off the shelf it's often far cheaper and less hassle.

I did consider calling 'someone I know' - but it was in the middle of the first Lockdown.  Everything was closed & we couldn't go anywhere.  I thought best to limit myself to what I could buy mail order or make myself!

I'll call said person for the next one though 😉

That 'someone I know' does a good mail order service as I found out in one of the previous lockdowns :rolleyes:. He built some test samples for an R&D project I was working on at the time.
