Do you have a picture ?

Mine is beige, I lucked out with my coach didn’t get the extreme colors some have.
Got the nice gold faucet and shower stuff.

I did not replace. Once you try to remove, you'll know why. It's the real deal, at least 30 lbs of cast iron. As Bad Latitude did, it can be replaced with standard household bath sink from either HD or Lowes.

I replaced the faucet. Original is solid brass $$ that can be rebuilt. I just got lazy and replaced.

Thanks for the insight. Embracing gold trim is hard to fathom in the all important "executive stall". I would have guessed that the trim would be the easy part.

Yes, Q sounds amazing but I hope to purchase a rig before then. I'm also wondering if all of the flooring is wood except for the bath, whether that creates any access issues for preventative maintenance or repairs from above?

the flooring in the coach is 5/8 plywood over a steel plate the entire length and width of the coach. The newer coaches have 2 layers of plywood with cork between them. The M380 coaches have a composit flooring

Any of the places that require access from above for "preventative maintenance" will have a removable panel. I cant think of anything in the line of pm that you have to remove a panel. Can anyone??

As Ernie is describing, it's a wood subfloor on a steel pan. If you have a two story house, it will be similar to the floor under your carpet on second floor. The only access from the top I've ran into on the FC is at the steering column to change hoses. I also cut another access plate near the go peddle for easier hose access and to get the grease fitting on steering arm/thing.


It's hard to get the gold in bathroom. There's gold on glass shower doors and a gold beauty cover/band that connects the top and bottom halves of the shower. Those two pieces are difficult to replace on a budget. No sense in spending the time and energy trying to switch to brushed nickel when gold will be back in someday.

One more, some buses have an opening at the base of shower that allows heat to pass under and through the shower stall from the suburban gas heater under dinette. When redoing the floor, leave a small hole (existing hole can swallow a small cat) to allow ventilation.
