Do you wish your RV’s bathroom were bigger or smaller?

If your RV’s bathroom were the house in the story of the Three Little Pigs, would it be too big, too small, or just right?

If you have a newer RV, we’re guessing you might say it’s just right (and you might even have two bathrooms!). Newer RV bathrooms are sometimes the same size as regular house bathrooms – they’re impressive! Older RVs, however … well, they can still be in the small department.

After you’re done voting, leave a comment and tell us if our above guess was correct. We’ll see if the age of your RV comes into play here…

Just wish the bathroom in my my old 22′ class C had a little more room.

Bigger, only because I don’t like radius showers.

I chose bigger, but actually the size is fine. However it would be far more efficient if the sink was on the wall by the slanted door entry and the toilet on the straight wall along side the shower. This would provide more knee room when sitting.

I spent some time on a sub in the Navy. We’re comfortable “dealing” with what my Dutchman came with…

2007 35’DS Jayco TT: absurdly cramped bathroom but it does its jobs. Shower too short for my 6’2″ head even with the plexidome, little legroom on throne, no way you can dress in there. Rig is 430sf huge, but bathroom is a closet.

It would be nice if the throne room had just a foot more space. Shower space is great in our 5th wheel as is the sink area.

Actually, if I could change the counter top and move the sink back two inches, it would be perfect.

The shower is plenty big, just a little more room around the sink is what is needed.

When I was searching for a new RV I always went inside the bathroom, shut the door, and sat down on the toilet. If I was not comfortable and could not move freely that RV was not for me. I didn’t need a big bathroom, just one where I could comfortably do my business.

As with others, an extra three square feet in the shower of our SPLIT-BATH Class A, would be great. We have a split bath, with a triangle shaped shower and storage cabinet. I’m not sure why they couldn’t have made the shower rectangular and done away with the three inch gap between the shower wall and the cabinet. There is just enough room to put an ironing board and some window shades in the gap, and seems like an annoying waste of space.

As mentioned several times below…it’s not the size of the bathroom that everyone wishes to be larger….it’s the shower. We are starting see this come about in some of the newer motorhomes, but prior to that, they aren’t much larger than the person himself.

We have a 2021 Little Guy Max that’s 21 feet long and has a wet bath that is plenty roomy enough.

The bathroom (head) in our 48yo GMC is a good size for most of our needs. I could wish for a little more room when showering (it is a wet bath), but I would have to give up space from something else. I’m not sure I want to do that.

2000 Shasta Sprite 22′, Class C, Rear Bath and Kitchen. I think my bathroom is just right. Everyone wants a bigger shower, 6″ wider would do for me. The shower curtain extender doesn’t fit for my shower opening. 😁 I travel 3-4 months at a time wandering.

I answered that it is the right size because the question pertains to the “bathroom” in our RV. I do think that it is the right size. However, I also wish that our half-bath (i.e., my bathroom) were a bit larger. I tend to stand part way in the hallway outside the half-bath when I use the sink. However, it is really nice to have two “thrones” in case nature calls us both at approximately the same time. However, we will have to learn to share soon, as we plan to downsize, which will preclude having a half-bath. I am looking forward to that day. 🙂

I lucked out with my new 21qbc cls c. Everything size-wise is working out great! Caveat – I’m 5’2″/145lbs. If i ever have company much over that needing to use the loo, may need a can opener to get them back out! Of course that could be helpful in preventing anyone from becoming a long-term visitor.

We live full time in our class B van. Would like a little more bathroom space, but love where our small and nimble little RV takes us. For now, it’s just what we need!

We have a 2020 Allegro Bus with bath and a half. The full bath is plenty big but the half bath could be a little bigger. But I’m not really complaining-I have a bath and a half in my RV!!

Would I like it a little bigger? Sure but I do not want to give up anything else in order to make it larger. So, it is just right.

We have a 2019 Tiffin Allegro RED37PA. We purchased the PA floorplan because of the bathroom and shower size. The 2 sink vanity is marvelous and it has great storage
