What about the shower and toilet in two seperate compartments with each having a sink?  That way one can be shaving and whatever after showering.  I suppose the shower area might either get too big or too crowded with a sink.

My concern about not having a sink in the same room as the toilet would getting germs on the door handle from dirty hand if one has to use a sink outside the throne room.

My travel trailer had the sink seperate from the shower/toilet.  It also had a sliding door so the door to the toilet/shower area could be left open.  My knees hit the door when on the toilet so I left the toilet area door open when using the facilities and just closed the sliding door instead.

Personally, I can't stand hand sanitizers.  They make my hands feel slimey.  I always wash my hands with soap and water when I use the toilet unless I have no other choice.  I don't particularly like sunscreen either, but I don't want sunbuun so I use it.

I guess if you don't mind hand sanitizer one could save a lot of space by not having a sink with the toilet.

We like having a full size sink in the bathroom, but one could look for mini sinks too.  These are not vendor links but just give ideas.

Just put a small piece of toilet paper on the door handle and open.

Sanitizers are doing the same thing that antibiotics have done, making a new generation of  highly resistant monster germs.

Sorry, but this talk of how to make it from the toilet to a sink while limiting contamination is depressing.  There are marine sinks that are only 11" round.  I bet you could even find or design one that is stowable.  I read an article about testing drinking water served in New York restaurants.  There was a much higher possibility of the presence of fecal chloroforms in the water that was served with a twist of lemon.  Whether is was from the harvest or restaurant employees not washing may not be totally clear, but the point is these bacterias are feisty.  I do not know that basic sanitary facilities are the place to compromise.

Hey Jack,  What do you put in the lower Linen Closet cabinet. Thin Sheets Cheesy,  Or is it just an access panel cover.

Looks good!!!

Gus,

The sanitizers have alcohol in them to kill germs.  That won't allow a germ to build up resistance or we would have done ourselves in long ago with wine.  The slimy feeling, unpleasant to me as well, is from the glycerin hand lotion they mix in to make it more attractive.  That evaporates after a minute but I, like you don't like it.  I use it though.  Here, smell my fingers Tongue Undecided Embarrassed Grin Grin

The sanitizers at the VA here put out a shot of isopropyl alcohol...straight and simple.  Every Dr. washes their hands prior to leaving, and I mean carefully, and then gets a hit from the hand sanitizer machine on their hands.  They must have a tub of Jergan's somewhere.

I use the stuff every time I pass a machine anywhere.

My 2 centavos

The bottom cabinet is hinged on the bottom and we store spray bottles of cleaner, holding tank chemicals, etc. It is also an access to plumbing, electrical, and ProHeat "stuff".  Jack
