    I'd want a bigger bathroom. Are you gonna have a shower in there?

    Are you concerned about weight?  Most RVs use aluminum studs or 2×2 studs to save on weight.  I admire your courage!

    Smaller closet, bigger bathroom. How about a shower? I would make that closet about 2 or 2 1/2 feet deep and use the rest of the corner area for a bathroom cabinet.

    You really need to learn about laminations of wood to make affordable complex shapes with strength and lightness.

    All that effort to put in foam, and your walls are full of voids which completely ruins the use of foam! Those odd angles and your framing needs a laminating stud solution. And you need to stop using actual heavy 2×4 wood. Smart move is before you go any further, switch to metal studs. Use your head, your weight is going to be insane.

    I would've saved the old tub and refinished it, then put it in the corner. toilet to the left of it, and sink to the left of the toilet by the door. for me a shower would be a must have, but that's me.

    I would have used 1×2's for the wall framing to save space and weight. 2×4 walls in a small RV is a big waste of space! Otherwise, looking good.

    I would have cut your 2 x 4's in half length wise for less weight. I would opt for the larger bathroom and put in a slide out closet.
    That is just my idea:)
    You are doing great:) Happiness to you:)

    I am an RV'er and a larger shower I key. The room can be small but the shower not so much

    Impressive how you took it down to an empty shell and are making it truly your own.

    I would put a pull out shelf in the closet with a rod to hang clothes

    I have a question, are you taking notice of the people telling you that 4 by 2s are ok in a house but too heavy in a RV? thank you for reading my comment

    Do not use pallet boards for your wall covering , insane amount of weight added to the RV. … A few 2×4 s turned sideways will add to the roof support but keep your walls no thicker the the side of a 2×4

    i guess im late with this sugg as well 2×2 for the walls since you have no issues with load bearing.

    Great channel guys. A little late for the back wall, you could have used a metal stud (thought for weight saving and no need for a saw) and cut in ribs to bend and shape to fit the wall, and closet facing out of the bathroom. Its great to see people living w/o loans…

    Sound lags..and is their something of a victim here?

    I would put a shower in the corner where you said you are putting the sink, like a curved corner shower…then a small sink and the toilet in the back. I know it is far beyond the fact, but that is what I would have done 🙂

    What type of screws, how deep, and how far apart did you place them?

    Sorry my comment is a year later when you already finished the rv. I have a old renovated RV also. To save space in the bathroom I have the floor waterproof with a small tank underneath. Then just put a shower sprayer on the wall. Works perfect. Can wash the bathroom and your self at the same time. Being single I only carry 5 gallons of water for washing and cleaning. Can easily refill the water container at most truck stops..

    I wonder if Tiling or water resisting the whole bathroom might have been able to make it so you would be able to have a stand in shower as well.

    How is dumping thousands of dollars into restoring a used motorhome your "debt free journey"?

    Why do you need a sink in the bathroom a shower and toilet are all you need brush your teeth in the kitchen sink

    I don't want to be a party pooper like everyone here ….but
    If your not driving this like a lot of people, it's great. I think you know how to build a house. And plumbing electric.
    Do you have o.s.b. and plyboard?
    Elkhart Indiana is using an advanced lightweight material.
    Stay foam is a great idea, knowing how it's built wonderful!
