FREE and Easy Fix for a Tiny Shower

In my tiny camper there is a tiny shower. It is 24" x 22" I think.

Here is the shower curtain rail as it came with the camper. Every time I take a shower, I am irritated by how hard it is to move the curtain around a 90' bend. Seriously? this is the engineers design? They should make the designers take a shower in it LOL

I removed the screws holding it to the ceiling. There was not even any caulking in the holes, so it was simple!

The original bend is just a 'v' cut out of the aluminum. I cut two more 'v' notches and put a slight bend in the channel. No special tools required! This is lightweight aluminum. I straightened out the original 90' bend a bit and this is the result!

You can put the ends in approximately the same position as before, so that the shower curtain ends over the shower pan, but I moved them out a little because I want all the elbow room we can have!  The shower curtain can still be placed in the shower pan, so water does not get out of the shower.

We have gained almost 8" of extra space! 
Amazing to think that is the same piece of aluminum, and it goes so much farther, and still hits the wall on both ends! It is so much easier to pull around too!!

 If you look in the picture below, you can see where the original channel was by the holes on the ceiling.  We only lost that tiny front corner and that wasn't usable anyway.

The shower curtain still fits into the base.

The other thing I did that gained a lot of room, is move the shower head . The original position of the shower head was on the right wall. You can see a lighter strip where the hose blocked the uv. That's where it originally was. I realized that if I moved it to the corner, we would have a lot more room. Instead of standing on the short 24 inch side we would be standing on the almost 36 inch diagonal.

By the way all our washcloths have buttonholes,and all our towels have loops so they stay on the hooks while we travel.

See how I turned this
