Anyone Use a Shower Curtain for Your External Shower?

Curious if anyone has ever rigged up a shower curtain for your external shower. Seems a good way to get a shower close to the TT with no sewer hookup (especially if the CG showers are not so good). If so what have you used and how have you supported it.

One of the reasons I thought of this is our external shower is between the 2 slides so there is "cover" on 3 sides already. Just thinking about how I might hook up a shower curtain for a little extra privacy. Would still take a shower with a bathing suit on of course!!

I've often thought of doing this as well! Though we're usually okay showering inside most of the time, I just have to convince DW to wash her hair outside, then we're golden!

I'm interested to hear what other say on this...

I too have thought about this too. I have seen small portapot tents and wondered about an extension hose for the shower wand. In your case, a couple of Command Hooks placed in just the right place could work great. We have a number of Command Hooks outside our door for jackets and leashes and they have held up great for the past two camping seasons.

In reality the only time we have used the outside shower so far is when my brother and his family has been along with in their PU. They use it to get hot water for doing dishes instead of boiling a pot of water, and for the kids to wash their hands.

Jagiven,

Good tip with the command hooks. Not just for the shower curtian. Could hang a small rope between the hooks with the curtain hanging on the rope. Might just work. Maybe angle the hooks so the rope pulls more in line with the hook. Great Idea.

Any more thoughts?

Since your shower, like mine, is located between 2 slides, what about simply buying a regular expanding shower rod, put the curtain on it, extend it so it extends past both slides, and then sit each end on the roof of the slide. You could take it down between showers and roll it up. Personally, my outside shower(head)does not seem to have the pressure of the inside one, otherwise, I would do the same. When I take the head off the indoor shower and place on the outside shower, it is equal in pressure to the inside one. Went to dealer to have him order me a second one like the indoor one, and was informed they no longer use that shower head....tried several aftermarket, including the one everyone says is so great, but none seem to work as well as the original inside one. Sorry bout getting off topic a lil.

I would check with the campgrounds to see if they have any problem with you doing that.

I use one of the "privy" tents, they make them specifically for showers with a floor that catches the water if you want, it works great, I've used it in campgrounds and while boondocking.

There are several companies who make these, check with Cabelas or Bass pro shops, or any similar competitor

Here is one that is similar to what I have: http://showertents.org/wp-content/up...wer-tent-1.jpg

Go get a spring tension bar for a shower and put it between your slides. Easy up, easy down no brackets or screwing anything to the trailer
