Combo shower / toilet agro!!!

Hi all,
I am fed up with my drop down basin in my combo shower toilet.
The drain pipe has split several times and I have had to replace the basin section twice now in 9 years.
Currently I have a large hole in the bottom of the basin (done by me) near where the drain pipe exits, so I can replace that section of pipe when it splits.
Another problem with this drop down basin is that it has never fully self drained, right from when new. I have to tilt the basin up to drain the water every time it is used.

I am thinking about removing the basin section and vanity unit section and installing a narrow fixed basin above the toilet with a mirror above it.

My question: Has anyone had this problem and replaced the basin and vanity unit with a fixed basin?

If so, can you provide any details and photo's if possible.

I'm not sure how a fixed (narrow) basin will work up above the toilet??????

Any advice, suggestions appreciated.

Cheers
Rob

Hello Rob,

We too we’re over the washbasin in our 2008 XC. In desperation my husband ripped the lot out. We never used the washbasin because of the drainage issues. The mirror doors on the cupboard were starting to detoriate. The door latches on the cupboard we’re becoming in reliable on rough roads. The plastic unit had also gone yellowish. Went to several local kitchen/bathroom/cabinet makers but no one could help for at least a year. We were told to buy a sheet of composite aluminium sheeting and sixaflex it to the back wall. Bought a mirror and attached it to the wall. The reno has given us a feeling of a larger area. We are now very happy.
