Default Poll: Best bathroom location

Seems like there are opinions on the best location for a bathroom and I'd like to hear what they are.

Even if what you currently have isn't what you want, I'd like to know your PREFERRED bathroom location.

I prefer the rear bathroom design on the Travato K. It looks like it would be easier to clean or repair because you can get to it through the rear doors.

I prefer rear, but the one I like least is passenger side...

Your poll does not distinguish between immediately behind the driver's seat (bad) and driver's side midsection (good).

One good thing about the bathroom right at the door is,
you don't have to tread through the RV to go to the bathroom.
This is a consideration for people travelling with kids.

Or in the middle of the B!

There are a variety of locations, as there are a variety of applications for the B.

After looking at all the basic layouts of Class Bs, I came to prefer the wetbath behind the drivers seat. It made sense to have the widest element of the floorplan across from the sliding door. And it leaves the passenger side aft of the door for the galley. Since your outdoor camping setup is usually outside of the door, when in the galley you're facing that side of the vehicle. In our LTV FreeSpirit, this layout allows the driver to see out the rearview mirror, while having extra space between driver's seat and bathroom wall.

Yes, that is what I was referring to when I said "driver's side midsection". I find a solid wall directly behind the driver's seat to be awful. Pushing it back with a low closet, cabinet or seat allows the window behind the B-section to stay, and greatly improves visibility.

I see the point of having the bath handy to the outdoors, but overall I think the few extra steps are worth it (although I admittedly have never used a B-van with kids).

We like the driver side location as it gives a clear view of the passenger side for lane changing and also a nice clear view of the camp site, but having said this I would consider a rear position.

Outside - campground, trees, bushes etc.
We never use our self contained facilities, never!
But, every one's needs are different...
