I got it through Ericksons RV in Coeur d'Alene, ID. I don't think they had more at the time, but you can always check with them. Best bet is to look up used RV parts and start calling/emailing.

Only if you are lazy and not careful. There should be no reason why it would be more susceptible to wetness and mold unless you don't dry off before getting out of the shower if you use it. Even then, I'd be more worried about the hallway at that point, because there is more room in the shower than the bathroom floor itself for drying off, and if you don't want to dry off in the shower, then you would have to step into the hallway.
As a general rule of thumb, you don't treat an RV like a house, no matter how much you try to make it seem like one. Similar to a house? Sure. Is it a house? Definitely not. You watch your water tanks constantly in an RV. You take your shoes off at the door (to be honest, if you don't, you are making a bigger mistake than having carpeting in a bathroom). Heck, even in a house, I grew up with a shoes-off-at-the-door rule. If a leak from outside shows up, you don't let it go until you have time to get around to it. You find it and FIX it as soon as you can. Heck, even showering, most don't use it in an RV, but wouldn't give a second thought in a house. If you do, you don't lounge around in it. You wash military style. You don't step out of the shower in an RV and let 1/2 the water run off you onto the floor. You dry off THEN step out.
