...and so it begins!

We love our arrow, but want to update systems, materials, cabinet space, and sho on. The first remodel project we decided should be first is the shower ( or lack there of for big guys), and toilet area. Was told that i should just build my own...in guessing like materials/kits from like Lowe's or home depot. What do y'all think?

Did you see the post with the bathtub/ Jacuzzi type? Man I would love that.

Yes! My wife isn't all that crazy about the Jacuzzi/whirlpool tubs, but she would like a tub! Could i put a tub in without upsetting the balance when it's full?

I reduced the size of my cabinets and it made a world of difference. What do you want to do? Do you have the option of making it bigger? I too would like to get rid of my goofy little tub. I live pretty close to you if you need help.

I have a super small shower/tub. I have a problem with balance so I found a bench type seat that I can sit on and take a shower and I don't have too worry about falling.

I'm unsure of how i can get more room, the floorplan is a little unforgiving. If i start moving walls inside the coach, will i have gaps in the head liner/ceiling? I would like to put a full size tub in here for her, with it full of water, would it upset the balance of the coach when it's set up, in jacks and with the slides out?

I cant imagine a full size tub. Your water heater is too small as well. Can you post your floorplan, maybe someone can come up with a suggestion.

Planning on putting a tankless water heater in, so no worries with not enough hot water. I haven't found the exact floor plan for our model, but I'm still searching.
