My Bounder has the bath and a half with just one commode. I have a huge floor to ceiling closet in lieu of the second commode. ( no jokes , its used for clothes and storage ). The shower stall , sink and cabinets and drawers are there as well . It's a full width rear. The mid 1/2 bath has another sink , cabinets and the commode. We love it and find the one commode adequate.

When we purchased our new to us last year I couldn't believe that it had the bath and a half! Love it. I don't think there is any loss of storage. Previous owners opted to not have the washer/dryer and went for shelving instead and that is also an extra in my book.

We still have some unused cupboards. We went from a single central bath 38' to bath and half 42'. Way more (better laid out) storage.

We only have 1 black tank, 45 gal. Both toilets are macerator toilets and pressure flush.

We would never have another coach without a bath and a half.

One time in Quartzite a water line broke that went into the front toilet and I was able to cap that off for a few days and we used the rear toilet until I could get parts to fix the broken line.

Paid for itself right there.

Even with just the 2 of us, even when we have no visitors, the bath and a half will be our next coach. We do love our present coach, but there are times when we both get the urge together. I generally have to hold it while my DW has her turn first.

We do like the layout that has the TV over a fireplace behind the captains chair, and no TV over the cockpit. This combined with the L shaped sleeper sofa would be ideal for us.

Our Adventurer has the bath and a half. Hers and mine. We call mine the 'outhouse'. We love it. It dumps into one tank. (We looked at a model that had two separate tanks with two separate dump attachments. No, thanks!) A recent couple of days with the grandkids reminded me of the importance of an outhouse for growing boys!

Yes for us. Never fails, me and wife get the urge to go at the same time. Half bath works great for guests. Love the extra bath.

Good question I am not really sure of the capacity of the two tanks. 007 said 50 gals but not sure if that is 2) 50 gal tanks or 2) twenty five gal tanks. I'm leaning towards two 25 gal tanks. But not really sure maybe 007 will know for sure.

The 1/2 bath is 50 gal the rear bath is 45 both separate tanks each has own dump valve.
Gray tank is 50 gal, if you look closely on tanks you will see a number with tank sizes.
Fresh water is 75 gal split between two tanks both sides of chassis rails.

We have the bath and half model and would not be without it. In fact when we were searching we narrowed down our focus to just those models, very quickly. Although our tank gauge shows two black/grey holding tanks each, we actually only have one each. Sort of confusing at first. I guess Winnebago uses the same panel device for all the models.

We opted for just the one bath. Winnebago Journey 40U.
On the maiden voyage from Tx. Currantly I up state NY.
we full time, thus we opted for the extra storage in the 40u.
There is more cu.ft storage in our 40' over the 42-45.
After being married for 45 Yrs. plus. One bath is fine.

Our first rig had 1 1/2 baths. It was nice when we took my mother-in-law along on a trip. Since then we have had only one bath in our next two rigs. We have had overnight guests one time only, no problem. We are fine with it. When trying to get ready for something at the same time we are in the same space but it is big enough and we are ok. The dreaded thought that we might both have to go urgently at the same time, has not happened yet.
We will have the grandaughter (age 4) this weekend. I'll report if having only 1 bath is an issue. But I'm optismistic we will be fine.

Irene - you'll be just fine and dandy and lucky too boot!! Enjoy. Not sure what year the first bath and 1/2 came out, but plenty of great times with more people have been had without the 1/2 than with it.

Still love our 1 1/2 and glad we have it - but back in my B Van days the full bath was about the size of my 1/2 now and 2 adults and 2 kids had no problem getting by with that.
