One and a half bath layouts

For those of you that have them, where the half bath is located near to or in, the public space, do you ever have those embarrassing moments where someone "uses" the bathroom and it doesn't quite air out completely? I think you know what I mean.... Between that most uncomfortable situation and the corresponding loss of storage area, I'm wondering if there's real value in having one.

Does the RV have a window? fan? a can of air freshener in a prominent place?

 

We full-timed 16 years with only one bath and had no problems. I guess I don't understand the need for more with only two people.

 

Well, that's exactly my point. Even if you have folks visiting, you can always direct them to the main bathroom. I don't personally see a need for an additional potty, but some do, and I'm just wondering out loud if the folks that have 11/2 baths still believe it was a good decision.

We had eight people living in our RV, and the necessary (for us) half bath was in the toy hauler portion (aka, bunk room) of the RV. It had a Fantastic Fan on the ceiling of the half bath, so there was no problem.

Tom, as you may recall we have the bath and a half in our current rig and really love it. Our summer house has two bathrooms and we like that arrangement. When we go to Texas for the winter in the rig it is nice to have the extra potty as far as we are concerned. Guests have not been a problem nor odors, the vent fan in both potties work fairly well. One point that needs to be mentioned is the use of macerator commodes. The front commode is in the front of the rig and the black tank is midship so with conventional plumbing drainage and blockages might become an issue. With the macerator commodes everything is pulverized and drains easily through the 1 1/2" pipe. What type of TP one uses is no longer a consideration, the macerator grinds it all up. After two years we are very happy with the bath and a half and the macerator commodes. Best Wishes, Jay

Been full time for 3 years and RVing since 1984, and never had a reason to have a 1/2 bath. I would rather use that area for storage space.

 

As for odors, close the door, open the vent and run the fan. Stop the fan, flush and run the fan some more.

 

The 1/2 bath could be great for a family with kids, but for me and the wife, I don't need one.

Bath and a half, toyhauler for us. Seemed like a good option for friends & family visitors. Found out I probably use the 1/2 bath for doing the duty more often than the front bath. It may be that ours is a front bath model so the full bath is a little further from the living room.

Like Todd we feel the 1/2 bath is very handy. It is right inside the door on our Mobile Suite and contains the washer and dryer. We too use it more often than the front full bath. it is very handy when outside. With a Fantastic Fan odor is not a problem. Probably boils down to what ever floats your boat.
