Our Shower Range....
We're constantly developing new moulds to add to our range of ever popular showers. Our modules make your shower & toilet installation easy.
We currently have:
- One piece modules suitable for high roof vans
- Two piece modules suitable for Coaster Buses & similar
- A 'new style' 2 piece module suitable for a range of vehicles including the Fiat Ducato.
- For those DIY RV Builders who want/need to build their own walls we have a couple of shower trays that can be used in any van, bus, caravan or horsefloat.
- We even have a shower base that is designed to fit over the wheel arch of a variety of vans!
- Coming Soon... A rear corner shower!
Once you have drawn up your floor plan it's advisable to start your conversion with the shower and build from there. We suggest installing the one piece showers before your ceiling as you need to maneuver the shower between the roof ribs to get it into position. The one piece shower goes in top first, face down & then slowly standing up in between the roof ribs. Once it is standing you can then move it into the required position. Some people place the shower on a bed of Sikaflex or a thin sheet of polystyrene. This takes up any excess movement. Once in position & firmly fixed you would install plywood bulkheads or similar on either side. You will need to make the appropriate cut out in the wall of your shower and vehicle for access to the toilet cassette. An access door frame is provided with the toilet and the cut out usually slots into the frame as an infill to the frame. For Sprinters/Crafters and Ford Transits we can supply a more stylish access door which is profiled to the shape of the van giving it a more professional finish. Our showers and bases have a toilet plinth area which is on the left hand side. This can't be reversed by us because it comes out of the mould on the left, however, we have known of people adjusting the floor area to accommodate the toilet on the right. This would be a decision totally up to you. The shower tray that is designed for over the wheel arch & the new shower has the toilet plinth on the right.
For fitting accessories we suggest using Sikaflex 291 or similar.
For cutting fibreglass - gloss side up, tape the cut line with masking tape and use a 4" angle grinder with a 1mm cut off blade. Use a jigsaw wth a fine metal cutting blade for curved cuts. Use everyday drills for drilling holes.
Things to know & basic how to guide
We don't supply the front of the shower or the door. This is because everyone has their own idea on what they would like. It also gives you the opportunity to match the outside front wall to the rest of your cabinetry. The usual procedure is to purchase a sheet of laminated/waterproof ply, or material of your choice that will have the appropriate cut out for your chosen door style. This panel is fixed to the front of the shower and sealed on the inside using Sikaflex or similar. Your local shower screen manufacturer can usually assist with the door which could be pivoting or sliding. Fairly new to the market is the Rollaway screen which is easy to install and lightweight.
We can supply a range of toilets suitable for use in our showers. The most popular is the Thetford 402C toilet, followed by the Thetford or Dometic Ceramic bowl. If you plan to install a sliding shower screen we suggest the Ceramic bowl toilets because it is not possible to slide the door with the Thetford 402C. The Thetford 402C has its own water supply while the Ceramic bowl toilets access water from the main water supply. The Ceramic bowl toilets also have swivel seats for better positioning. Once again, the toilet you choose is a personal choice. You can view more info about the Thetford 402C by clicking here and more about the Ceramic Bowl by clicking here.
