  1. Gents,
    Looing for some idea's changing the layout of the campervan just now and wont get the shower tray from the caravan I'm using into the layout as I've got about 4.5ft left till the end of the van. I've still to get a rasied double be into that space as well planning on it being about 4ft above the floor.

    Now I'm prepared to loose about a 1-1.5ft from the bed to accomodate the shower, Any idea's on what to use for the floor? Doesn't need to be a caravan shower tray just something around 500mm width it can be a bit longer if needed. My plan was to cut down the shower tray floor and use some perspex that I can lay my hands on and silicone it around the floor.

    Any other ideas?

  3. Brett I cut mine down, then used sikaflex marine sealant 291 to reseal the cut end with a section of fascia board, still waterproof and aesthetically pleasing 3 years later. Make the join on the door way end of the tray and no one will notice its not a full tray.
  4. MiT,
    Looking to see if there's other options if possible pref next to no cost cause I'm skint
  5. Even if you don't have an off cut of fascia board, and some good sealant you should be able to sort it for under a tenner.

    Make your own little wet room, I don't know how it's worked, as I was only involved in the plumbing side of disabled wet- rooms, but it was good gear.

    I think you had to put in angle beads around the edges to form an upstand, then you can use some type of pvc sheeting to form the walls.

  8. Cheers TT,
    Looking to get it cut square around the plug hole then box it in and use some perspex to act as the side wall if that makes sense unless someone has any other ideas?

    as long as the box it sits in is sealed properly then any vinyl, textured floor will work or even plywood you could even use floor paint to seal it if you put plenty of layers on and use sand as the grippy bit.

    you could also make your own resin one using that casting stone they use in garden ornaments.
  10. There is a Caravan Spares/Breakers less than a mile from where I'm sitting now.
