Shower heights

Tramping through a number of Entegras today, we noticed that the showers on some models are quite short. A little thought shows that the mid-bath models like the DEQ have a much higher ceiling in the shower, as the rear bath has a raised floor to make room for the engine.

While I am not a tall man, I noticed that in the rear bath models, the shower head was essentially touching the wood trim around the skylight. The padded ceiling and this simple wood trim are just above the head, and it seems that that area is certain to get wet from splashes off of the head, if nothing else. The wood trim was a simple frame and not all that well finished. Has anyone noticed this, or had any issues living with it? I can slap on another coat or two of poly, but the padded roof is what it is. So.... what kind of experience do you have using the shower day in and day out?

That's why I'm in a DEQ...and why I'd like to see a DEQ floor plan in the Cornerstone.

Showers come in two heights.. At over six feet tall in my stocking feet I find many are TOO SHORT.

The young lady I'd like to be courting is closer to 5' tall on tiptoe. and for here.. TOO SHORT.. Note that this is the same shower.

Alas, there is no in between.

Like the T-Shirt day at the ball park.. The lady ask the man what sizes they had, His reply: Just two sizes, too large and too small.

And your problem is? you just work the shower head for her and you can save water at the same time. Looks like a win win to me

I have an RBQ, however I have only spent a few night in it but did not notice a problem with the shower and the height. I am 6'2' and it has as much room as the mid shower in my previous MH which was an earlier Entegra.

The tile shower stalls in the Cornerstones and Anthems are taller than the fiberglass inserts of the Aspires. Also the "wood" trim around the skylight is faux wood(plastic).
