2018 Melbourne Shower Question

Just checking to see if the new door design makes it any easier to take a shower? Most 2016-17 owners will tell you, don't drop the soap unless you are very, very limber... Not even sure an upgrade would be possible but I'm sure to investigate a little deeper. Thanks!

I have a 2009 Greyhawk shower is not much different just take one of those mechanical grabbers you see on tv in the shower with you that is how close mine is.

I'm 6'4" and have a 2016 Melbourne and if you can bend at the knees no problem with dropping the soap.

We have had no problem with our 2017 Melbourne shower however, it does look like the redesign give you a bit more room.

Tight fit for us too in our shower, 2017 Melbourne 24M.
I use one of the mesh "wash rags," which I lather up and then don't need to hold onto the bar of soap anymore.
But when it does slip out of my hand, it's a tight squeeze to pick up...!

We don't mind the shower. About like any other smaller camper we've owned. We have an Oxygenic shower head, which we really like.
