The Bigfoot 25B25FB is one of the fiberglass trailers that features a full-sized bathroom. This contains a separate shower and toilet as well as a sink for washing up. There is a power fan located overhead on the roof of the unit.
The trailer does not have a bathtub. However, the stand-up shower is equipped with a solid sliding door to keep the water contained when in use. There is also plenty of storage space on the sink vanity. A large medicine cabinet is located overhead.

Oliver Legacy Elite II
The Oliver Legacy is another unit that contains a full-sized bathroom which features a toilet, sink, and a shower. It's set up as a wet bath meaning there is no separation between the shower area and the rest of the room. The toilet and sink will both get wet when the shower is used. However, there's no need to worry as nothing built into this room will become damaged from the water. Underneath the sink, there is a convenient area to hang up extra towels or washcloths.
Some of the things we like about this bathroom are:
- Has a shower, toilet, and sink
Some of our dislikes are:
- No storage drawers or medicine cabinet
- No bathtub
Even though this bathroom is small, you need to remember that the entire trailer is quite compact. It still offers all the basics needed in a bathroom. The only major downside is you will likely need to dry the room after use so that the next person to enter won't step in water when using the facilities.
Escape 19 Travel Trailer
This fiberglass trailer has an enclosed wet bath complete with a shower. The hose for this is hooked up to the sink. To use, simply start the water in the sink until it is up to the temperature you desire. Next, pull the release button to start the shower nozzle instead of the faucet, and away you go!
There is a fan hooked up to the roof vent on this unit as well as a window that can be opened to increase airflow in the room. Above the toilet is a mirrored medicine cabinet which is great for shaving while you shower. It also offers additional storage space.
Some of our favorite features about this bathroom are:

- Convenient mirror/medicine cabinet combination
- Window that opens
- Roof fan
Some of the disadvantages are:
- Slightly cramped
- Will need to dry area before anyone can use the toilet or sink
- Not a lot of storage space

The sink is in the corner of the bathroom but is mounted directly to the wall. This space could be utilized a bit better if it had some sort of shelf underneath. The medicine cabinet isn't very deep either meaning you'll need to find an area outside of the bathroom to store items such as your towels.
The Airstream Nest is another wet bathroom that we are looking at. This one contains a shower and toilet. There is a small sliver of counter space, just wide enough to hold a few small items such as a razor for saving while you shower. One of the more unique aspects about this one is the three holes built into this countertop which will hold bottles of shampoo, shaving gel, or even lotion. Whatever suits you best!
There is a mirror as well as a window. Underneath the counter area is a small cabinet that is perfect for your toothbrush and a few other small items you may need in your bathroom.
