We travel with a big dog, so it really comes in handy. We've even given him a whole bath using the outside shower. So glad we have one.

We're fulltimers & we use it all the time. The DW rinses off the farmer's market veggies. I use it to wash up after dumping. We both use it after a swim. Wouldn't be without it.

we love ours. we use it all the time to rinse our little boys off after playing in the river all day. Since we don't have sewer hookup it helps us save on gray capacity.

I rarely use ours. Hardly ever did with the pop-up as well. It just wasn't that convenient being on the opposite side of the TT. It was just as easy to go inside and wash up or whatever. I really only used it to wash my hands here and there.

Ours is in the compartment where the plumbing/tank controls are... there's a soap dispenser there also. It's very useful for washing up after dumping the tanks.

Deployed during boondocking, gets a little use for hand and shoe washing.


Located above and just aft of the sewer connects. Perfect for cleaning up!

I use ours to aerate the water system when we setup, i also use it to wash hands / dishes. I did am mod to attach one of those expandable garden hoses, then attach the shower head. the hose shrinks up enough to pack into the compartment with out the head. I also made a wood base so you don't stand in the mud when using it. DW bought one of those outside showers so I'm going to mod it so we can use the hose as a shower. I'll post picks after the 4th.

I use mine all the time! We mainly cook outside and it gets used as an outside sink to rinse off my hands. We also to use it to fill up dishwater and rinse dishes, rinse feet, wash off fishing gear, hose off the dog, the list goes on...... I wouldn't want a camper without one unless it had and outside kitchen.

I use ours twice a year ... in the fall when I winterize and the spring when I de-winterize.

I just had to use mine because our grey tank filled up too fast and I needed a rinse. When I bought the TT I asked myself if I'd ever really use it. My first trip out it came in handy!

Use it all the time with our Pup when we're out. This year we'll build a mod enclosure with a changing area....put some rubber grid mats down and I'll be good to go. Nothing like showering in the outdoors. The neighbors kept complaining about being nakied at the last site, so I figured I better design and build and enclosure. I really think he was worried his wife was gonna get some ideas.

Just wondering where your camping that you can allow shower water to drain on the ground? Every campground I have been too has never allowed water to drain on the ground? I can only imagine after the first 80 or 90 showers what the ground/grass/mud would be like? How polluted the ground would become with soap etc..

I know each of us feel the little I leave behind won't harm anything, but, when the typical campground is full for 3 to 6 months a year, one piece of trash the size of a dime left by each camper, becomes a mound of trash.
Just my opinion, but I try to leave any camp sight I use to be cleaner when I leave then when I arrive.

We have both, and the shower we use as a shower, and the outdoor kitchen we just use to wash our hands. The outdoor shower is great to wash off the muddy kids and the sweaty dog. Wait was that backwards?

No, it's fine. Dogs, kids they're pretty much interchangeable when it come to making messes. Love 'em either way!

I use mine, I will wash my hair instead of using the bathtub, much easer to clean up and you do not have the hair going down the drain.
I do not have a problem of using it. mine is in the back of the trailer.

Well, then. Get more dogs to achieve the perfect Zen-like balance our lives require.
