What Is a Shower Toilet Combo in an RV?

It’s a bathroom where the shower and toilet are together in the same space without any separation. It’s also known as a wet bath.

This means everything gets wet when taking a shower. Usually, these spaces are much smaller than standard RV bathrooms.

Vintage RVs, small campers, and Class Bs will usually have a shower toilet combo to maximize space. Occasionally there will be a sink, cabinet, towel rack, mirror, or other features.

When it’s time to shower, close the bathroom door and make sure it locks in place so that all of the water stays inside the wet bath.
