How would I go about covering the cushions? With all of our kids, it would be great to protect the foam inside and be able to remove them and wash them.

You make or hopefully you have a friend/relative that sews slipcovers with a zipper or Velco that you can remove and wash.
There is some nice heavier, water/stain resistance material used for making outdoor patio furniture that would be great.
You could also get a heavy cotton and ScotchGuard it.

Can I buy a regular shower curtain and trim it down? The shower curtain clips are so tiny.

I don't see why not and I don't see why you can't use regular shower curtain rings either.

Also, thanks for the yellow idea, that never would have occurred to me. Can't wait to start searching for fabric!!

Your welcome. Happy Shopping!

Hi -- you guys are inspiring me!!! Currently our MH has greys and mauves. I HATE greys and mauves!!! We're going to re-do in sage and moss greens. Next week we're going to see how much it will cost to have the couch recovered....then I'll work on the transoms around the windows. Lottsa work but it'll be worth it.

Now - about those tp holders. Our bathroom toilet area is ....well, the best I can say about it, is you won't fall off the seat when the MH is moving because it's such a tight fit!!! Are yours that small and you can still fit the tp holder in it???

Hi dshultz50: Our bathroom is not very big, but I found an area behind the toilet and under the cabinet to fit the round holder. The holder is about 5"-6" across, so a square area about that size would probably work. The toilet is usually set out from the wall a few inches and in our bathroom there is a storage cabinet behind it that goes up to the ceiling, which give us a few inches to use in one corner. Another friend saw ours and put one on top of the cabinet in her bath because she had room there!

In our 5er I installed an extra towel bar behind the toilet because we had space that wasn't being used by anything else. Space is so very different in each RV that no one solution will work for everyone, but hopefully you can find something that will work for you. We've "remodeled" so many RVs and have learned quite a bit about things that not many people care about. It's nice to have a place to share!

My bathroom is TINY. I could never fit anything like that in it. I have found a couple of plusses of the small size. 1) At home I have to be on my knees to bathe the girls. In my camper, I sit on the potty while doing it. 2) At the end of a long day, I can sit on the potty (lid closed of course), lean back, put my feet over the edge of the tub and let some nice hot water run over them. Feels real good.

That actually sounds very relaxing!

Now, if I could just figure out how to shave my legs in the shower stall without becoming a contortionist..

There is a topic on here about shaving your legs while RVing. I recommend an electric shaver. I can do it outside or by the bed instead of in that tiny little shower.
