I am in the beginning stages of purchasing a 22 tri-toon S series. The only thing I know for sure I want is the double Bimini at this point. Do people use the dressing room? I know it is also used for portable potty privacy. Is it worth it?

On my boat YES. Wife said it was mandatory. Better to have it and not need yet, then need it and not have it ......
We use it almost EVERY trip out, vs. our Bimini which we used maybe 5 times.

Our boat is five years old and we have never used ours. We eliminated it from our new boat on order.

We didn’t add it to our build because we are lakeside. We were certain we would simply use our cottage bathroom for changing, toilet access, etc... However, by the end of the first year, we wish we would have added it. Being on a big lake, getting back isn’t always quick, AND heading in also interrupts everyone else’s fun so one person can go to the bathroom.

If we had it to do over, I think we would add the changing room and toilet to ours. I think we would also add the spray down hose as well for simple clean up.

Changing room came with our boat. My wife used it every time we went out. She would change into a dry bathing suit for the ride home. Now that we have the boat slipped across from our house........she still uses it!!! Must have for us.

Here is our changing room.
Poor kid can’t even get any privacy!! ;) My boy (6) just hangs it off the back like it’s no big deal and waves as another boat passes. My wife is hiding under a towel and I’m trying not to pee myself laughing!! We live in the woods so it’s his norm to drop trowel and pee!

We don’t have one nor do we miss it. But we live 50’ from our lift.

Had it on my last Benny, but not on the two I have now. No one used it then and now there is not a choice. I think part of that is due to proximity to restrooms and sand bars..
