      Mike…enjoyed reading your article and review of Alaskan Campers. There are MANY things to like about the Alaskan, primary among them the hard side and the well-appointed comfortable interior! However, I find it surprising they don’t offer a full wet bath (with inside shower) since they offer the cassette toilet enclosure…wouldn’t be that difficult to include a shower. (yes, they offer the outside shower) It’s also surprising (even environmentally disappointing/unconscious) that a gray tank is not standard. That’s right…it encourages you to dump your gray water on the ground. I was in touch with them some time ago re this issue and they said they could add a gray tank if requested. But still…poor construction policy. I can’t remember if they said they could include an inside shower…probably.

      Grey tanks in pop-up campers really aren’t that common. In fact, Four Wheel Campers doesn’t even offer it as an option.

      This whole thread raises some interesting points about the difference between camper/camping and RV/RVing.

      I don't like to make plans. They cause the word "PREMEDITATED" to get used in court!

      We own an older model Alaskan camper (2003-4) and we enjoy having the indoor Thetford cassette toilet – a real plus at night. The cassette offers the convenience of dumping at a pit toilet when a dumping station is not available. We have an outdoor shower with hot water and use a pop-up Rhino tent for privacy. We have not been put off that the shower is outside and have found it handy for rinsing off on hot days before heading inside.
