Default B with dry bath?

Are there any mfg's making a 'B' with a full bath ( dry bath)?
Where the shower is separate and not like a wet bath where everything gets wet when you take a shower.
I know the 'B'+'s have this feature.

Hi,

I have Thor with a rear bath. It is so large you could add a curtain to keep the toilet and medicine cabinet dry. I am 6 feet tall and can use in it with no problems. I have been thinking about doing this, but have not yet, high priority updates.

The Class B with large rear bath, two long beds (can change to one very large bed) and stove-sink-frig behind driver seat comes in different models (all about the same):

Thor Dazzle/Twist 2LB (low cost units same as the)
Thor Tellaro/Sequnce 20L
Swift 20T from JayCo
Travato 59k from Winnebago
Nova 20RB from Coachmen

(/ = same van with other name)

Rear bath floor plan. Adding a curtain to keep the toilet and medicine cabinet dry is very easy.

I think I would be concerned that the items in the drawers would get wet and moldy as they are in the wet shower area

Hi,
Yes the Chinook Bayside DB come with a dry bath, no mods needed. It is on the Ford Van.

Hi,

The curtain do work well. To be safe we do have micro towels that we dry everything off after a shower. I installed a clothline in the bath also.

I just looked at the Chinook Bayside website. It looks like they have good quality with dovetail drawers and hushmat all around. Does anyone know about Chinook quality?

I've read not so good, but still likely better than Thor, a low bar for sure.

Another option with a wet bath is to use a shower curtain around the entire perimeter of the shower area so everything doesn't get wet. I put some simple hooks around the perimeter of my wet bath and rigged up a perimeter shower curtain that I can quickly hang to keep everything dry. It doesn't even get that wet with a short van shower and is easy to wipe dry with a micro cloth towel. This would be a better option for me than buying a Thor.

The Airstream Atlas is a class B that is a little wider than a B Van and it has a slide. It has a true dry bath with seperate shower.

I thought the Winnebago Travato has the separate shower?
