Outdoor Shower shelter

Does anyone use their outdoor shower instead of the shower inside their TT?
I was wondering if anyone has rigged a makeshift shower privacy shelter?
All the ones I have googled has a roof on it so I wouldn't be able to use the shower on the TT.

I saw one somebody made from PVC pipe and a shower curtain. It did the job of providing privacy and was easy to setup/take down. Light weight and inexpensive too.

You could use something like this that appears to have a screen or opening in the back which you could put close enough to the trailer.

or this one

The one issue I see with using the outside shower as a shower is collecting the grey water. Some campgrounds frown on disposing the grey water on the ground.


Hope this helps.

What I do is cloths pin a plastic shower curtain between my two slide outs. That gives me a 3 ft. deep by 3 1/2 ft. wide private shower stall. Also made a 3 ft. by 3 ft. platform out of treated lumber to stand on. Ain't fancy but it works.

I have used a tension rod with a shower curtain between my 2 slides.

I was thinking and you stated you could not use one with a roof I assume that is because of getting the shower head into the privacy tent. Maybe you could mod one that you purchase to accommodate the shower supply line by making a little door in the side wall to feed the shower into the privacy tent. Or place it so the zipper door is facing the TT and feed the shower line in and zip it up to the shower line.

I use my outside shower all the time. Used for washing my hands, cleaning greesy frypans, and for taking the odd shower, usually late at night. We try and find private campsites, a small PVC stall is all you need. Coming back from a sandy beach , the outside shower is a godsend.

Mustang, after much reasearching, I was at my local WalMart and found one there! I am going to set it up at home here to see how I can modify it for the TT shower head.
I know grey water is frowned upon in some campsites, so I was going to look for bio-gradable soap and shampoo.
