I bought this because I hate having the shower curtain rub on my arms when washing my hair, etc. I delayed installing it for about a month. I finally decided to "tackle" the job. It was so easy. I don't know why I waited. It took me about 20 minutes. I only had to drill one hole on each bracket because I used the existing hole on the top from the old shower rod. Once I drilled the second holes, it went together very quickly. I am pretty short so I could not get the center rod screwed in from the top. No problem, I just put the screws in from the bottom. Works beautifully. I'm amazed at the room it adds. I also love that the bathing suits can now drip into the tub and not down the side and on the floor. I am a woman, but I do know how to use a drill. SIMPLE. Can't believe I delayed. Paralysis from Analysis. Just do it.
It replaced a shower door. There is more room now. Our shower is a little narrower than the spec. for the folding rod. Easily cut it to the length needed. It is a robust shower rod, heavy duty pipe and joints.
This rod give us more room in our shower than the door we replaced but we need to
work on the placement as the bathroom door that opens out to close off the shower from
the living area will not let it fully extend at that end and we can not open the door to get
from the bedroom to the living area when the other person is in the shower. Check your
placement in your RV carefully before getting this.
Finally got a chance to install the new shower rod. Worked exactly as described. It took two
to install. Since we have a shower stall I used a regular shower curtain with some
modification. Added a weighted hem to the shower curtain which helps keep the curtain on
the inside and some Velcro on the sides. Plenty of room now. Love it.
This rod has made a small cramped shower into a much more pleasant shower. Now I
can at least turn around, and move without hitting the curtain, splashing water out all
over the place. Great addition to our RV.
We own a Fleetwood Storm and the shower space is not great. I saw this Extend-A-Shower and we decided we would give it a
try. Easy installation and it adds a lot more room to the showering area. The only hitch was I had to buy a longer shower curtain because where the rod folds out it raise the
curtain out of the shower pan. Bought one and hemmed it and problem solved. Rod also works as a towel bar when not in use.
The rod works just as advertised and it really does make more room in our travel trailer's shower. However, I expected a very simple straightforward installation, based on the pictures, but it was a bit more difficult. As it came from the factory, I could not get both mounting brackets to be vertical on the wall; one of the brackets was twisted out of plumb. Finally removed one of the screws attaching the rod to the bracket to let the rod rotate on the bracket. Then I attached the bracket to the wall and inserted a self-tapping screw in place of the original-machine thread screw and it was perfect - square and plumb. The rod works
great. I Recommend plastic shower curtain rings on the white rod.
We removed the sliding/tracked shower curtain and installed this shower rod. It adds more room and light in the shower, and when folded in, it allows air to circulate around the shower curtain. Very heavy duty and easy to install. Highly recommended!!
Easy install for me, Jayco 32bhs. One stud on inside wall easy to find, one side no stud
but I hung it as we don't have kids to pull hard on it. Works great, no more curtain sticking to your back in the shower! moves out easily and tucks away OK but that wasn't a problem as the curtain opened anyway to make room. Its when your IN the shower! I would recommend!
This shower rod is without a doubt the single most useful, cost effective and worthwhile
addition we ever made to our camper. We have a tub/shower and this makes taking a
shower much more pleasant by moving the shower curtain far enough out that is isn't
laying on you constantly. My advice, unless you have glass doors, if you don't have one,
you NEED one.
Works great. Now, we have more room while taking a shower,folds back when not in use. I did put some seal around themounting heads so water wouldn't get in the walls. Gives you
plenty of extra room in the tiny camper showers. I was afraid our shower curtain wouldn't be long enough with the
new shower rod but that's not an issue either. Easy installation.
This rod works great. Installed it myself in about 45 minutes. Easy to work, it gives
extra room in the shower when bathing and extra room in the bathroom when not using the shower. I would highly recommend this. We took a six week trip this fall and this really helped as the trailer can get a little small when living in it for that long.
I was not real happy at first going from a glass shower door in my travel trailer to a shower curtain in my new 5th wheel
so I bought one of these and have to say it is wonderful! I always wanted a drying bar in my trailer shower like this.
Nice to be able to hang wet clothes on it and have them drip only in the shower. When I shower, it pulls out and keeps
the curtain far away from me. Just love it!
This product worked exactly as advertised and was easy to install. It gives a big person that little extra shoulder room needed and I would recommend it to others. The original
shower curtian worked fine and the longer one was not needed.
LOVE IT! It was exactly the size I needed, so no adjusting. It took 2 minutes to change it out, (including finding my screw driver). My husband was surprised and very pleased, as was I, with all the room that it gave us in the tub. It seemed roomier than the glass
enclosed showers that we thought we just had to have when we were shopping for an RV. AND...I couldn't beat the price anywhere! I looked at over a dozen websites and Camping World had the best price. It arrived within 5 days. Like I said...LOVE IT and LOVE Camping World! The fact that it folds back in to the shower is really great also.
This seems like a great idea, however it wouldn't work in our trailer. It comes out several
inches and was too close to our vanity mirror, but it would definitely give you more room in
the shower, disappointed it wouldn't work with our set-up.
This was one the best investments we made for our shower, it not only opened up giving us more room in the shower, but, it also opened up the toilet area when shower wasnt in use. This is a must have item.
Works better then expected. Gives you plenty of extra room in the tiny camper showers.
I was afraid our shower curtain wouldn't be long enough with the new shower rod but
thats not an issue either. Easy installation.
WAS WORRIED WHEN I GOT THE EXTEND A SHOWER BAR, BECAUSE IT
WAS TO LARGE FOR MY SHOWER STALL.
BUT I FOLLOWED THE INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO ADAPT THE UNIT TO
MY SIZESHOWER STALL. IT WAS NOT VERY HARD TO RE-SIZE THE UNIT.
I NOW HAVE MORE ELBOW ROOM, WHICH IS JUST WHAT I WAS LOOKING
FOR.I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS SHOWER BAR.
Extend a Shower will make you want to extend your shower. My wife and I used it for the first time this weekend, what a
difference it makes. No more touching that curtain by accident while showering, also, the curtain now goes outside
of the light in our ceiling so its brighter inside the shower. We love it.
We quickly installed this expandable shower rod in our 28 ft camper. It gives us plenty of room while in the shower, and gives us more room when using our toilet because it folds
into the tub when it is not in use. If you are like me, you don't like rubbing up against a shower curtain when showering, and this rod gives keeps that from happening. I
would also like to mention that this rod seems to be very well made. I would definitely recommend it.
As advertised, this rod makes a world of difference in extra elbow room if your space is small like my 32 in. shower. It is made for 35-42 in. but can be trimmed to fit smaller showers. Though the instructions on the package were useless, I just cut 3 in. off the
middle bar with a hacksaw and hoped for the best. Well, sure enough, that did it and it mounted in a flash. I strongly recommend using the plate against the wall for added support but mine worked okay with wall anchors. When collapsed, it takes the whole curtain away from the edge where you pass by. I haven't hung a lot of things off it to dry yet, but depending on how you anchored it to the wall, will determine how well it holds
up. So far, it was worth the investment and is a nice luxury for showering in a VERY small shower.
Great way to add room in the shower.It is very easy to instal by one person. At least it was for me. Folds back into the shower for plenty of room outside if your bathroom is a little on the small side. Works great and easy to use and I would say to anyone to buy this because you can not go wrong if you are tired of the shower curtain clinging to you while you get clean. Well made to hold up for a long time.
Works great and gives you alot more room in shower; especially if you have a small area to shower in. Installed this in my Class B camper that has a wet bath. Very tight room to shower, but with this extension it is much better and keeps the curtain away from you. My curtain was plenty long enough and works well. Installed myself in about 45 minutes.
This shower rod is fantastic, especially for tight spaces. I
installed it on a shower stall at home - very easy
installation. The finish seems to be very robust and doesn't
seem to be affected by metal shower curtain hooks sliding
across it. We love the way it pushes back into the shower
when not in use - otherwise our bathroom door would strike it.
Another one in the RV is next!
This is a must have for any camper shower! It gives you the extra room you need so you
don't feel so cramped. It's super easy to install and looks great. A bonus idea is when
it is folded inward for the 'stored position' it makes a great place to hang wet bathing
suits, towels etc so they can drip dry right into the tub! We bought a shower curtain that
had lots of mesh storage pockets (you see them alot around back to school time) and
that's yet another great space saving tip!
This made a world of difference in our shower. It was so
easy to install (5 minutes) with a cordless drill or you can
even use a screwdriver. I will probably buy another for my
parents. Put it in my 25' travel trailer......Great product
This is a great product. I'm over 6 feet and around 240 pounds and I never had room in the shower. Now with this, I
just wish, I hadn't taken so long to put it in. You might need wall anchors to do this job, depending on your trailer. In my trailer, I had to use one anchor out of 4 screws.
Fantastic Idea. Gives you room IN the shower and OUT of the shower. Push it in when you're using other functions of the bathroom and you gain so much room. Everyone with a shower curtain on a rod should own this.
My wife and I tired of having the shower curtain sucked against us when we showered. This rod cures all of that. Swing the rod out and it doubles the space inside the shower. Swing the rod in, and it stores inside the shower, could not be simpler. Construction seems very heavy duty. I can't wait for the first trip of the year!
Both my husband and I are big and tall and the extend a rod has made showering in our camper as easy as showering at home. Our medicine cabinet is really close but the extend-a-shower clears it just fine. The extra elbow room it
gives the bathroom when the shower is not in use is also a huge plus. We've recommended the extend-a-shower to several friends and they've all purchased one for their campers.
Well like everyone else on here has stated, this thing is great. I installed it in about 5
minutes with a cordless drill and used it this weekend for the first time. I was worried
about my cabinet being in the way of its function, but it works well even if you have a cabinet close to the shower. It actually helps in the fact that when the rod is in the
unused position you can open your cabinet door another foot or so more. I would definitely recommend this to everyone.
Our camper came with the pleated shower door. It was awful making shaving your legs impossible. This is a wonderful addition. We removed the pleated door and its frame, and had this installed in about 20 minutes. It also allowed me to pick a standard shower curtain making my bathroom more attractive. The way it swings in while not in use is so wonderful! Also, don't worry if you have a cabinet next to the shower. It has no bearing on that. Do it! You won't be sorry.
We have a tiny bathroom in an older motor home and it has always felt like you were taking a shower in a phone booth. This extend-a-shower expanding rod works great. It was easy
to install with the hardware included. It swings back and away easily, stays in position while in use and travels down
the road well too. No bath water puddling on the floor and a more comfortable bathing experience all around. It is an exceptional value.
The one that folds is nice, but there is an optimum space that it accommodates: longer than that and the extra space decreases, shorter than that and it won’t fold inside the tub area. In any configuration it doesn’t provide as much extra space as the offset shower curtain rod by C.i.i. RV Specialties. The best approach is to determine whether your most important consideration is more space or more flexibility.
This is a great product and was very excited to recieve it. The only problem was that I didn't measure my shower before I ordered it, and of course it was too short. So my son now has a new Extend-A-Shower for his travel trailer. Just wish they had Extend-A-Shower for longer showers, This would be an easy fix, just need to put two different length center rods in the package
Except for having to mount it slightly off center because of the need for a wall stud it installed easily and makes a huge difference. Sometimes these types of things are just a good sales pitch and a waste of time but this thing really is, as my wife says, "The Berries".
Easy to install, and makes your shower seem so much bigger. We left the original rod (aluminum strip attached to the ceiling) in place with the small hooks so that we can hang our bathing suits from them and they will drip on the inside of the shower curtain (when not hanging on the awning). When not in use, it simply folds in and you have more room in the bathroom to move around.
Bought this near the end of last season.Works great with shower curtain that came with camper. Our medicine cabinet is also close to the shower, so we push in the opposite side of the bar first, then push in the one near the cabinet, Best thing we have purchased so far.
Love this item and bought it knowing it would probably be too long. I cut the rod to fit my shower and it works perfectly. Mounted high enough it works with the medicine cabinet mounted next to the back wall of the shower. My only suggestion is that they offer it in a smaller size.
It is nice and sturdy, well-built and only took my husband a few minutes to install. It makes our tiny bathroom seem bigger, too. I purchased a standard-sized shower curtain, and trimmed a few inches off the bottom. I would recommend the Extend-a-Shower to all of my RV friends!!!
Should have bought this sooner. Makes a 36" wide shower much easier to use. Now I don't dread taking a shower in our travel trailer. My wife laughed at me when I bought this, now she is thanking me.
You need to find a sturdy place to mount this to the wall. It comes with four screws to mount it, that's it.
This product is definitely worth the money... the added space for taking a shower in our cramped RV shower is wonderful... I wish that we had found this product when we first purchased our RV, then, we would have had more comfortable showers from the beginning. Even tho our shower was 3 inches smaller than the thirty-five inch size for the smallest opening that it was suitable for, I easily modified the rod buy cutting five inches off of the center rod, re-drilling one hole and re-assembling the unit. It then worked perfectly in our RV.... If you have a cramped shower in your RV, I highly recommend this product!!!
Im a pretty big guy. 6' 1" 255 lbs. my orignal shower curtain keep sticking to my body as I showered. Since then with this rod. I have plenty of room. plus it folds inside the shower to make room in the bathroom. Its very well made. Easy to put up. Easy to use. I love this thing.
Will it work if there is a small cabinet right next to the shower?
There's no way to avoid this cabinet. Is it possible for the flexible part to flex out only part-way way on that one end and just stop where it meets the cabinet??
by DonnaMay 06, 2015
The product can be used as you described (partly extended), but will obviously not get the same benefit compared to being fully extended.

What is the length (top to bottom) of the wall-mount bracket.
by AnonymousJune 11, 2014
The wall mount is 1 inch wide and 3.5 inches tall.

Can this be used in a motorhome? If not, why not?
by StevieSeptember 27, 2013
These can be used on showers with opening 35" to 42" wide and has outward clearance for the expansion. While they may be designed with 5th wheel and trailers in mind, it will work on any shower with the correct size opening.

When rod is swung into the shower, does it have to pivot overhead or can it swing down and into shower?
The camper ceiling is too low to pivot overhead and don't want to mount the bar lower than it is now.
by AnonymousJuly 03, 2013
This actually doesn't swing up or down by design. The height stays the same as it moves inward and outward.

Will this work on a 32 inch opening?
by mingoJune 19, 2013
This can be trimmed down, yes.

Does this work on corner showers?
by edMay 03, 2013
Use on a corner shower is possible, however it will limit the range of motion and may not be as effective as it is on straight-wall showers.

How does it stop water from running on the floor? (does the curtain stay inside the shower pan)
by ckosterApril 01, 2013
The bottom of your shower curtain stays inside the pan, yes.
April 02, 2013
Does this come with shower curtain?
by AnonymousFebruary 03, 2013
Shower curtains are sold separately (not included).
