Travel Trailer Bathroom Caulk


Okay, not technically construction related, but give me a break. I'm old.

I recently picked up a venerable travel trailer that's a bit weathered on the outside, but pristine on the inside--except the caulking needs to be re-done in the shower.

I'm not sure my usual go-tos are the best choice for an environment that flexes, vibrates, freezes and cooks on a regular basis. Anyone have experience with a "best in class" for this application?

Polyurethane...Sika 1A, Vulkem 911, Tremco dymonic FC...all will work beautifully.

Big stretch.
Some of the Tremco's and NP-1 and other urethanes, while amazing sealants, aren't recommended by thier manufacturers for indore use- look at msds sheets.

I would only use the kitchen and bath ,mold resistant if using this. won't have to deal with smell. And it holds up quite well.

Thanks, guys. Big Stretch is actually one of my normal go-tos, and readily available here. I know Sika is good, but nobody handy stocks it.
