I have not heard of any changes that would make for a dry bath in the Elite II.  Why do you ask?

There is not enough space in the LE2 for a dry bath. It is a very compact design, less than 7 feet wide (inside) which appeals to those who buy the trailers. And obviously the LE1 is even more so. There might be a larger Oliver in the future if you are willing to wait, but so far that is just wishes and rumors. Why don’t you take a look at an Ollie in person, before you decide it won’t work?

I am quite confused about your statement, the diagram is pretty self explanatory.

Pizazz: The partition at the top of the image is a closet, not a shower. The wet bath was one of my concerns, too, but after reading up about them we think it's worth the trade-off for more interior space.

In that image the closet does look a lot like a shower so I can understand the question.  But a closet it is, for better or worse.

Oliver could probably turn that space into a separate shower with some clever design work, so you ought to mention that to your salesperson, if only so they can gauge interest.  Perhaps in the future they’ll be able to offer options.

For the most part, Oliver leans toward the practical when it comes to design trade offs like that. That tendency appeals to some, not to others.

You do have an option to have a shower curtain installed such that the side with the toilet is blocked from the shower.  We have this and it is really better that a 'dry' bath because the curtain will flex out of your way when you move around giving the functioality of a larger shower.

Storage is a premium in the Ollie's but I would give up the closet for a separate shower.

Where would you put your coats/ hats/ clothes? There really are not any good alternatives, unless you put up a line and leave them all hanging in the middle of the cabin. I do that with wet towels, but I would never consider it  to be a permanent solution!

I have the biggest shower, it is located in the campground restrooms, why would you want to shower in a 3x3 area. Ok, I know many would not use the campground shower because they have "Cooties".

A dry bath in a small camper is comprised of some "expensive" real-estate given how much actual time is spent in that shower versus that same space's other possible uses.  Yes, I know of a number of people that use the shower as a storage closet, but, of course that means cleaning out the closet/shower each time you would like to use it for wet purposes.  The Oliver is my first camper with a wet bath and I didn't think that I would actually be happy with it - but - I am now.  The fiberglass is very easy to clean/wipe dry and the space used for the closet is much more practicable.

I didn't think I would like a wet bath but it is incredibly practical. 

1. Sit on toilet to shave legs

2. Toilet gets cleaned everytime you shower - ahem, whether it needs it or not.

On our boat, the one dry bath, separate shower often becomes a sail locker, or storage locker. The original bath becomes a wet bath. 

Separate shower in rental rvs often gets the same destination.  Laundry bags, boots, etc, til we need to use it, then its a mess putting stuff elsewhere. 

I'm of course really used to wet baths, so take it for what it's worth. I have zero issues with a multipurpose room. I actually prefer it.

I don't worry about Cooties but athlete’s foot is a common fungal infection picked up from a public shower floor. Also, wart viruses and HPV can be present. The most serious common infection that you can acquire from a public shower is MRSA, or methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus. This can cause abscesses in the skin that may require treatment with antibiotics or surgical drainage.

I think most of us built up immunity to cooties while in grade school.  I never worried about cooties after I got to high school.  Mike
