    How bad would removing a toilet/shower hurt my resale? It's a cassette so I guess I could always put it back if need be.

    It will be interesting to hear opinions on this. Personally, I don't think it will hurt re-sale value at all. If I were searching for a pup, it would actually almost discourage me from pursuing buying it. Space is a premium in a pop-up and to me, this is wasting usable space. I always camp in provincial or state parks that have showers and comfort stations though.

    I, on the other hand, camp mostly in spots with no services. Having an on board toilet and shower sounds FANTASTIC and I wish, really wish, I had one. If I found out a unit USED to have one, but it was removed, I'd pass.

    I just might be a deal breaker for me. We had one neither shower nor toilet and traded up. We primarily camp in State Parks [hopefully Provincial soon]. Here are the buts...
    -We also camp National Parks and they have either cold or no showers. Not much fun in cold weather.
    -It is great not having to sit on a cold seat on a cold night.
    -It is nice to not have to walk to the bathhouse in a downpour.

    Another problems with removing the toilet/shower are will it look like it never had those things [e.g. will the floor match the rest] and how useful the added space is. I say this because I had a boat that had the head removed. Evidently it was a port-a-pot. looking from the back, things looked pretty good, they took out a bulkhead [wall] and replaced it with a post. There was another short wall [maybe 8 inches high] that kept the potty in place. This had been cut down to about 3 inches and very roughly, without fiberglassing the sawn off edge. It was a hard place to clean.

    If I were shopping, I'd pass on a unit that had had the potty/shower removed. We don't use the shower, but that doesn't mean we never would. The potty is a must-have for us.
