We are always intrigued by the creativity of our fellow RV’ers. Some folks repurpose the most off the wall (no pun intended) items for new uses in their RV. This case is no different. While wandering through a motorhome recently, to my surprise there was a wood bench just dangling off the wall next to the main entry door. I thought to myself, what could this be? It turns out that the owner of the RV took a conventional foldable shower seat and re-purposed it for additional RV seating.
In this particular case he had always complained of a place to sit to remove shoes once inside the RV without tracking through to the couch or captains chairs. He also says it gets used for additional RV seating when they have company. A pretty clever RV mod for that purpose and most likey one that others may find a use for in any number of ways.
Unique Concept for RV Seating: Wall Mount Folding Seat Bench Photos
When it comes to RV seating, anything above and beyond what’s already installed from the manufacturer does not usually get much space to work with. This folding seat could be useful in nearly every room of the RV, as it keeps a pretty compact profile. We are thinking perhaps on the wall in the bathroom next to the sink, next to the entry door and also in the back bedroom for help while getting dressed.
The seat they chose which we thought was very sturdy is the Best Choice Products Folding Wall Mount Shower Seat Bench. They went this route primarily on price. They stated that they couldn’t find anything close to this price when considering the quality. The frame and legs are made of high quality solid stainless steel. The hardwood wood seating area is varnished for durability. The interesting part is, designed for the shower, its intended to take quite a beating making it perfect for the RV in our opinion. Not to forget that really any fold-able seat like this could be used. Which means there are literally hundreds of options to choose from.

The only concern we have is the installation. With RV walls varying from RV to RV in terms of the ability to support a seat like this, you will want to pay extra close attention to how and where you fasten your additional RV seating. Alternatively you could look at using a fold down marine seat which would be lighter but not as “easy on the eyes”.
