Class A shower remodel

We currently own a 2014 Thor Tuscany XTE 40EX. We are considering redoing the master bath shower, complete gut an redo with tile. Would this project be worth doing if we are considering the possibility of trading/ selling the RV in 4-5 years?

It depends on how much time you spend in it vs how much you dislike the current shower. If you spend more than 30 days a year in it and don't like it I say change it.

I am currently repainting my entire 5th wheels interior and redoing all the window coverings. I decided that I really couldn't stand the brown color scheme and wanted something lighter and more colorful. So I am all for making it as nice as you want it to be!

Not to me, but you've probably got a lot more money to throw around than I have!

One thing to keep in mind -- it would not increase the price of the rig when you trade it in for a new one, so you wouldn't recoup the money spent to do it.

I do improvements because it make me or my wife happy. As far as resale I hope when we get done I have made an improvement in looks and value. Besides when we get done with our camper it wil be to old to worry about resale.

Have you ever did a shower? I have and doing one in an RV would be a huge no for me. Good luck if you try.

Not sure the walls could handle the weight of the tile. I'm an original is best type of person. No matter how well done the job, I'd walk away from a non factory shower / bath, and buy something else. Mold and leakage are my concerns. Your coach isn't old, why invite trouble?

I remodeled our shower this spring and so far so good. My parents used it for about 10 days this spring and drove it about 1000 miles on the rough Colorado roads and its held up great. If it makes you happy go for it.

Here is a link to my write up.

Tile Shower

Thanks

We are not doing the shower ourselves, Texas Coach Works would be doing the remodel, but we too, thought about the weight. It would be something we thoroughly need to look into. Thank you!
