Having a wet bath in their travel trailer is very important for many people, yet they don't necessarily want a large travel trailer. Instead, they want something they can drive comfortably. Teardrop camping trailers are very popular, but most are so small they cannot accommodate a wet bath. Fortunately there are small trailers with wet baths.
Information about Wet Baths
Not all RV enthusiasts are fans of wet baths. Some people prefer larger trailers because they often come with a separate shower. The wet bath certainly does have its drawbacks. The most common issue is the obvious one; you will need to wipe down the floor and other nearby areas after each use. This is not an incredibly tedious and time consuming task, yet it can be a burden on older couples and those who do not enjoy cleaning after every shower.
In all actuality, wet baths are very easy to clean, and can usually be taken care of in a simple matter of seconds. Using paper towels or a mop to wipe down the floor is the most common way to dry the wet bath. If constantly drying the wet bath is going to drive you crazy, then the wet bath is probably not for you. Just remember, that it is not hard to maintain the wet bath area and it is all part of the experience of owning a smaller travel trailer. If you do not like the idea of a wet bath, keep in mind that there are many additional advantages that come with smaller trailers that might make up for the wet bath by providing a surprising amount of additional space.
