We have a wet bath in our Casita Travel Trailer, which we find fits our camping lifestyle quite nicely. It is quite small, but is very functional and easy to maintain. We enjoy the larger shower space because it encompasses the entire bathroom, which provides us with more freedom of movement while taking a shower.
Wet baths have a smaller footprint compared to dry baths. This feature allows Casita to offer additional counter space and storage cabinets in their trailers.
We keep a small squeegee in the wet bath. After showering, we use the squeegee and a microfiber towel to finish drying off the bathroom. This cleaning process, combined with an overhead 12-volt power vent fan, helps to clean the wet bath dry.
Mildew or mold can sometimes become a problem in wet baths when camping in high humidity weather conditions. We discovered a product that eliminates that problem: its called Concrobium Mold Control. It eliminates and prevents mold with no bleach or harmful chemicals. The product works as it dries on moldy surfaces, creating an antimicrobial shield that crushes mold spores and remains on the surface to prevent future mold growth. You merely clean your wet bath, then spray this product on the surfaces that are subject to retain moisture and the problem is solved!
We discarded the cheap, plastic shower curtain that came with our Casita and replaced it with a water-resistant fabric shower curtain.
We use Dri-Dek Nonslip Shower Surfaceon our shower floor to facilitate the drying process. It is self-draining with interlocking panels that provide a ventilated surface to promote air circulation and eliminate trapped moisture. We use the 12" x 12" panels and trim them for a custom fit.
We hope this information is helpful to other campers.
Tomorrow another adventure begins!
