\n\nThis is my Travco, the add, after I got it home, wiring over the new floor patch ready to mount in the bench bed cupbord, ac and dc is done, appliances and heat and air work, no on demand water heater yet, but I got hose water working for cold until I started to renovate the bathroom. \n\nThat is where I have a question. Someone remodeled the toilet into the bedroom, and put a gianormous sink in the shower. Is there any reason to move the toilet and tank to the other side? Is Travco small "Crapacity"? Looks like underneath is mostly wheel well.\n\n\n\nLooks like the pics are reverse order, sorry.

Looks like you are making some headway. Is it possible your floor plan had a wet bath (toilet shower sink all together)? Our 76 has the bathroom on the drivers side in front of the rear axle and has the separate Shower. The black water tank is directly under it. Some of the older units had incinerator toilets and they did not dump in the tank.

My Travco had the shower toilet combo over and behind the drivers side wheel well, it has the holes left, where the toilet used to be. I'm going to look up incinerator toilets, to see what they were, I've never heard of that. Sure sounds like some smoke I wouldn't want to smell.

They are expensive but from what I understand dont smell. The good thing about them is your tank would be gray water. The bad part is you have to handle pooh ash...lol

\nThe 76 Mahal has the bath on the left side ahead of the rear axle. \nIt was gutted when we got it.\nThe vanity and linen closet are Ikea. The toilet is a Thetford and porcelain. The 32 x 24 " tub has replaced the old 24 x 24 shower. Plumbing was reworked to accommodate.

\n\nI patched the grey and black water tanks, and opened the shower up a little, I do fiberglass work now, so it should look good when I'm done.

\n\nI got the fiberglass work well under way. Really was wanting to sleep in it last night, so I did. Dinner, and a movie, and we slept together. I'm not done by a long shot, but I have enough completed that I'm not so overwhelmed. It's hard for me to get much done when everywhere you look, needs fixing, and nothing is sanitary.

I used SMC resin when I did some repairs on a 220. Stuff is wicked strong.

\nWell, it's not done, but it's home.\n\nI am repairing the bathroom with fiberglass mesh and resin, following with ceramic paint. Reinforced the bottom of the travco shower pan, it felt soft, and there was a failed repair over a split in the bottom. Sold a car today, so the shower repair, shower faucet, on demand water heater, fancy dc switches, freezer, and heat are going to be ordered shortly.
