Great for adding space. However, the hazards of screws into a new RV cause another issue. Hopefully another product can be added to secure the item without screws. Maybe a spacer with an extremely strong adhesive. 640395

I purchased a show encloser for my Rv and a Extend-A-Shower curtain rod. This thing is the greatest invention ever made for tight spaces. Highly recommend, well made product and super service and delivery. 601058

THIS IS THE MOST UNIQUE SHOWER ROD. WE HAVE A STAND UP SHOWER IN OUR HOUSE THAT IS A 36"X36" AND I COULD NOT FIND A CURVED ROD TO FIT IT. SO I FOUND THIS ONE. HOW COOL. WE HAVE ANOTHER ONE FOOT IN OUR SHOWER. NOW. NO THOUCHING THE CURTAIN WHILE TRYING TO SHOWER AND WASH YOU HAIR. AND THE PIVOTING SECTIONS THERE ARE 2. ARE GREAT WHEN YOU FINISH YOUR SHOWER,. JUST PUSH EACH ONE INSID THE SHOWER AND IT GIVES YOU MORE ROOM IN YOUR BATHROOM. I WAS WORRIED THE CURTAIN WOULD NOT STAY INSIDE THE SHOWER STALL DUE TO COMING OUT SO FAR BUT NO PROBLEM. IF YOU HAVE A SMALL SHOWER STALL. AND NEED MORE ROOM THIS IS THE ONE FOR YOU. **ITS NOT AS PRETTY AS THE CURVED ONES BUT**MUCH MORE FUNCITIONAL... VERY EASY TO INSTALL. 320772

I needed more space when taking a shower. The bathroom is also small. The great trick with this product is it expands outward while taking a shower and inward when not in the shower. See attached pics. It's the best of both worlds!! Thanks Cathy K. 324354

I have a Jayco travel trailer and we love it but for a 6' guy the shower was a bit cramped. Every time I would turn around I'd get tangled up a bit in the shower curtain. I've bought several products from etrailer before and stumbled across this product looking for some kind of solution to my shower problem. I didn't think it would work as well as it does but it's great. Installation was very easy and it doesn't cause the shower curtain to leak. If you feel a bit cramped and need some extra room in your RV shower I highly recommend this product as it works exactly as advertised. 722926

just installed it....was real simple to install...like the way that it folds back over the tub...makes more room to shower then leaves room when not using it.... 645219

Everything worked out just fine on my shower rod. Since the rod was made to last for years to come, I removed some paneling from my shower to install blocking, so that I would have the support needed for a product that would last for years, with no problems. Thanks! 591375

Only concern is packaging during delivery. No additional protection over product when shipped and the package was badly damaged. If this is the typical type of shipment I'm not sure if I can order from y'all again. 375963

Review from a similar Stromberg Carlson Extend-A-Shower in RV Showers and Tubs


The straight factory curtain rod in our travel trailer made for a miserable showering experience. I was initially looking for a curved rod, but noticed this one during my search. It has made showering much easier and the ability to flip it inside is great for saving space and drying swimwear over the tub. Product quality is very good and installation was easy. Stainless screws to attach this to the wall are included here as well. Big thanks to George at etrailer as he did a fantastic job with following up on the order and even sent me an email when the product was delivered at my door. What a great personal touch! 500213

Review from a similar Stromberg Carlson Extend-A-Shower in RV Showers and Tubs


I could not find a bar that would work for me until I found this one!! My shower was 41" and the small one wouldn't add much depth, so I ordered the large one and cut it down. I took 4" each off the side bars; re-drilled and counter-sunk the holes. I hung them on the walls (2" inside & above the shower stall making sure the curtain would reach at an angle) at 45 degree angles. I measured the center bar, cut it down and re-attached it all. IT LOOKS INCRIBLE!! It added about 8" depth to my shower!! The material is very heavy, it's very well made, and it works amazingly smooth. I love how it bends into the shower for hanging wet items. I'm going to buy this rod for every bathroom! I give this product 10 exclamation points!! Did I mention that I'm a 62 year old woman?! 246696


Comments
I still love your shower rod. It moves very smoothly and easily its obviously very well made. I not only use it for more space while inside the shower, I also bend it to the inside of the shower to dry the curtain. Such a great product. I would recommend this to anyone.

Product works well in my 36 inch shower. The assembly is very easy for one person. For an easier install remove one bracket from the arm install that on the wall do the same on the other side and then reattach the middle bar install time 15 minutes. 749287

We love this shower rod! It took our cramped RV shower from uncomfortable (shower curtain sticking to our shoulders) to great! It feels like our shower doubled in size. We had to cut it down because of an odd sized shower, but it was easy and there are instructions available on how to do Excellent product, highly recommend. 670828

We purchased this Stromberg Carlson shower curtain rod after our experience with another one installed in our shower enclosure in a master bathroom remodel 12 years past. It still works perfect and it's folding feature is great. Decided to get another for our just completed second bath remodel. Better than any curved shower rod.

  • Recommended Stromberg Carlson Extend A Shower For Motorhome Shower
    The Stromberg Carlson Extend-A-Shower Curtain Rod I recommend for your shower is part # EXT-3542S. This curtain rod is designed for showers that are 35 to 42 inches. I have attached a photo of the curtain rods with the dimensions noted. As noted, the # EXT-3542S has 2 arms that are 9.45 inches long and an arm that measures 19.5 inches long.

  • Length of Pieces of Stromberg Carlson Extend-A-Shower Shower Curtain Rod
    When assembled, the Stromberg Carlson Extend-A-Shower Shower Curtain Rod # EXT-3542S measures a total of 45-3/4 inches long at its longest point. The short rods are approximately 11-3/4 inches and the long rod is about 20-3/4 inches. It does not extend or retract but bends at the two joints. The rod is designed to be used while bent so from end to end will be a shorter distance than if it is installed completely straight.

  • Mounting Method for Stromberg Carlson Extend-A-Shower RV Shower Curtain Rod EXT-3542S
    The Stromberg Carlson Extend-A-Shower RV Shower Curtain Rod # EXT-3542S weighs under 3-lbs and even with the small additional weight of the shower curtain itself should be fine for installation in your shower even if a wall stud or other structural member is not available at the mounting point. It would obviously be better to have such a mounting point to install just about anything on an RV but the included 2-inch stainless steel mounting screws will work for most applications. I would...

  • Recommended Shower Curtain Rod to Extend Elbow Room in Small RV Shower
    The Stromberg Carlson Extend-A-Shower Shower Curtain Rod for RVs - 35" to 42" - Satin # EXT-3542S is the smallest curtain rod we carry to allow the elbow room you are seeking. This should still work for you, but you will need to use a shower curtain weighted at the bottom to allow the angle to keep the curtain within your shower pan. Your mounting locations will need to account for the smaller size shower pan. I've attached a photo showing the dimensions to assist so you can determine...

    The Stromberg Carlson Extend-A-Shower Shower Curtain Rod # EXT-3542S is intended for RV applications in showers that are 35- to 42-inches wide but it could certainly find uses in domestic shower installations. The rod is 45-3/4-inches long overall but it can pivot at two points along its length. We also offer a version in white, part # EXT-3542. Since I am not certain exactly how you measured your shower area you can compare the spacing of the two mounting points. If you like you can...

  • Compatibility of Shower Curtain Rod with Quarter Round Shower Pan
    The Stromberg Carlson Extend-A-Shower Shower Curtain Rod for RVs - 35" to 42" - Satin # EXT-3542S will work with a quarter round corner shower. You will just want to make sure your curtain stays within the shower pan for your application due to the difference in shape between the rail and pan. This combination is not uncommon and will work well.

  • Shower Door/Curtain for Use with Better Bath Neo Angle Shower Pan
    With the neo angle style pans like the # LC325246 that you referenced you can get neo angle shower doors that are glass or you can use shower curtains like the part # EXT-3542S which would be probably better for RV applications as it would keep the weight lower.
