Do Class-B RVs Have Bathrooms and Showers?

Are you thinking about getting a Class B RV but are not sure if the Motorhome has all the features you need? If that is the case, you should be pleased to know that, despite their smaller size, Class B RVs are equipped with all the amenities required for long trips. This includes a bathroom equipped with a toilet, sink, and shower. However, the bathrooms available on Class B RVs are not regular ones.

Do Class B RVs Have Bathrooms and Showers?

Class B RVs are equipped with bathrooms and showers. In general, most Class B Motorhomes are fitted with a wet bathroom. Since this type of RV is usually 18 to 24 feet long, it’s essential to utilize every inch available on the floor to maximize its potential. This is why RV manufacturers use wet bathrooms. There are also Class B+ luxury camper vans that are equipped with dry bathrooms. This is possible because Class B+ luxury Motorhomes stretch up to 33 feet in length, offering more than enough space to separate the bathroom and shower areas.

Wet bathrooms feature a toilet and shower. However, what makes them different from standard ones is that the shower, toilet, and sink are all located in a tiny space. As a result, the entire room will be fully drenched after you finish showering. Luckily, this isn’t a problem because the space is designed in such a way that it can be easily wiped off. The Grech Strada Ion is a premium Class B RV that offers a great wet bathroom design. The bathroom on this model features a molded sink (with vanity mirror), handheld showerhead for easy access, ceramic toilet (with a foot flush), and a retractable clothesline.

What Types of Bathrooms Can You Get in an RV?

RVs are equipped with two types of bathrooms: wet and dry. Wet bathrooms are most commonly found on Class B RVs. They feature a shower, toilet, and sink in a tiny space. Fortunately, cleaning wet bathrooms is easy. They are designed to be quickly wiped off after showering.

On the other hand, dry bathrooms are only available in bigger Motorhomes because they separate the shower and toilet areas. In addition, dry bathrooms offer extra space to move around and access to more tools, such as a hair dryer.

What Types of RVs Don’t Have Bathrooms?

If you are planning on taking your RV on long trips, a bathroom that provides a toilet and shower is an essential feature. This is why you should think twice about buying an RV that doesn’t have a bathroom. Here are the types of RVs that come in shapes that don’t make it possible to have a bathroom:

  • Pop-up campers;
  • Small travel trailers;
  • Teardrop trailers.


Most Class B RVs are equipped with wet bathrooms. While they might not be the best option because they get drenched when you shower, they are good enough, and cleaning them is easy. If you are planning to spend time at a camping space, you probably won’t even use your bathroom too often because camping areas offer access to showers and toilets fully equipped with the amenities you need for personal hygiene.
