been searching the internet and so far this is the best place i found..... $3.80 each plus shipping
http://www.hrpworld....;action=product

Is there anyplace better? dry.gif

my shower is a little larger than 2'x2' those that have used dri dek did you order extra tiles to fit that one inch difference or did you just use the four 1'x1' tiles and center it?.....

Really like the dri dek as that shower floor really gets dirty without it. biggrin.gif

Joe

UPDATE: Upon further investigation i found it was cheaper to go directly to the factory as the shipping was cheaper and they didn't ask for so much credit card info as the other site....... I orderd direct from the factory biggrin.gif

My Dri-Dek came in a sheet of 12 tiles. I cut to exact size of shower floor which takes 6 tiles. You do have some waste but I like the exact fit! One piece of dri dek waste is now used to sit my battery on for winter storage.

Note, when you look at the picture you can see where 4 tiles come together and next to the drain. Make sure that this area is not sitting directly on the drain itself. If this area sits on the drain it will bend the drain screen when you step in this area.

Hi Joe,

I ordered 6 of the tiles and trimed 2 of them to get an exact fit.
I used the left over in the bottom of my storage units in the Casita.

It seems that the "Aquamat" offered by Boaters World and Bass Pro Shop doesn't have the bottom cleats which will help in not bending the shower drian.

blink.gif I found that 4 Dri Deck tiles is all that you need for a full fit in the shower floor. The floor of the shower is about 22" x 26". If you carefully plan the cutting of the short side, the trimmed off pieces will nicely attach to the long side for the required fit. Just watch what direction the connecting tabs go and you've got it beat.

Trimming them this way will also move the centre X off of the drain as shown in Kent's photo. My scrap left off of 4 tiles was a piece about 2" square, not much use for anything so I threw it out!

I agree with Charlie, only I cut some off both sides to make the "X" centered in the floor. (sometimes I hate being a perfectionist!) lol.gif Drains just fine. I bought 4 tiles from West Marine. Grab the scissors and everything works out fine. Great mod to make the shower a whole lot nicer.

I got mine at West Marine. All you need is 4 tiles. You need to trim two of them, save the 2" (about) you cut off and attach them to the other side. It fits in the shower perfectly.

I will be a DriDek supplier to the person that sends me $12 and I will ship these already cut to fit a '05 bath.

They have been stepped on very little and were replaced by another set of gray ones when the decor scheme in our trailer changed.

I just finished putting 4 tiles of Aquamat on the shower floor, looks great. But I did notice that my 2008 Spirit Deluxe shower floor was 21.5 x 25 inches. Comparing to what I've read in the forum, it seems that the newer models are 34.5 square inches smaller.

jhinojosa........with the measurements you give, I don't think the shower area in your trailer is any smaller than any of the others. If you note my comments it says "about". This number was a guesstimate based upon the original size of the dri-dek and approximately how much I had to trim. Unfortunately, right now our trailer is under snow ice and everything else, so it is pretty hard to get real measurements.

Charlie:

I did overlook the word "about". Your words are comfort, I would hate the newer models to be smaller.

Happy Holidays!

The bath floor in our '05 measures exactly 22" X 25" I ordered four tiles from DriDek (twice)

After snapping them together, I trimmed 1" from one 24" dimension and used it to snap into the other dimension. Then the second 1" trim was from the side opposite from the first trim, so that I was trimming off the attaching tabs. I actually measured 22" from where I had previously trimmed to get the new trimming point. This trimmed off piece is waste.

Finally, I trimmed off the attaching tabs from the fourth dimension, which should be 25" from its opposite edge, so that all sides were trimmed edges.

After a little rounding of the corners, it fit snugly in the shower.

As I say, I did it twice, the same way both times.

I tried to order direct from Dri-Dek yesterday, but they want you to order at least 12 squares. I ordered from HRPWorld.com tonight for $27.00 total.
