We have been using the Wall-Up for the last 4 years (before it was even available at Walmart) and it is quite sturdy and works great for outdoor showering. Once you have a morning shower under the trees, you'll never use the indoor shower again !

https://www.walmart.com/ip/The-WallU...x-144/43298551

Has anybody found a quick-connect for outdoor shower use ? The angle makes it a pain to tighten sufficiently to waterproof and untighten and the plastic spigot on the outdoor shower is not going to hold up to constant tightening and removing.

We use that faucet all the time for various things from rinsing off equipment, rinsing off the dog, and I keep soap in the compartment with my hoses and such so I can always wash my hands after various "chores" back there. It works great just as it is IMO.

I've even pondered some kind of curtain to affix to the roof ladder so I could actually shower back there if I ever wanted! LOL!! DW says "nope".

I guess after tent camping for so many years the thought of taking a shower outside just does not appeal to me at all anymore. One of the reasons we bought the 28RLS was the bathroom. It's nice and roomy and the shower is more than big enough for me. I like to take a nice hot shower just before going to bed. I certainly don't want to take it with the bugs and critters crawling around the back of my trailer at night. Nope, it's indoors for me. And then this leads into the whole dumping your grey water at your campsite conversation. If you are showering outdoors, you are certainly (ok most likely) dumping your soapy grey on the ground.

Not quite sure what you are referring to here.
We bought one of these stainless steel flexible shower hoses that we keep hooked up permanently to our outdoor shower fixture. It simply wraps around the hot and cold faucets and stays right in the box that encloses the fixture on the trailer. It is plenty long to extend into the shower tent, but still fits in the box so we can close up the shower box door when travelling.

We do detatch the shower head itself, but since the hose fixture is steel, no stripping. (The shower head itself is a good quality plastic).

Plus you could shower off if you wanted to.

Does that hose fit in the shower compartment? I like the looks for that.

Yes, it fits, along with the original hose it's attached to, a water pressure gauge, water pressure regulator and a 90 degree fitting. It all fits in there (albeit very tightly). But it all fits in there easily without the those additional items (Those items are not part of the shower, I just like to keep them back there near the water hookup).

I've never given the grey water issue any thought until now. We use biodegradable soap (Dr Bronners)

Not to hijack the thread, but has anyone ever gotten in 'trouble' for this?

And I do not mean to call out anyone on the grey water thing, I do a little dishwashing out behind the trailer (one of the reasons for this mod) myself. I guess a lot would depend on where you are and how things are done there.
