Outside shower can you instal one?

I was disappointed that the 2014 24R has an outside hose (cold only) but not an outside shower with hot and cold. Has anyone installed an outside shower connection? If so how?

I ordered a black one from eBay. Under 30 dollars. Ordered some pex tubing and pex T's from amazon. I cut the hole in the same location as our last tt had the outside shower installed. I ran the tubing through the rear of the kitchen cabenets to T with the kitchen sink faucet. Works well.
Our last trailer came with a fold down rack on the back bumper. We use it as a counter top to wash dishes since it's outside shower was just to the left of the right tail light.
This tt came with an outside shower above the dump valves so out of the way for washing dishes and hands other than a dumping mishap. Here is a video I used as a reference. DIY Outdoor Shower Install

As far as the Pex. I got it from amazon but later learned lowes carries the tubing and fittings also. A live and learn would be not all pex fittings are equal. Prior to installing our kitchen sink water did not have a plastic taste in the water. After putting the two t's just below the kitchen counter now the water has a slight plastic taste. We use bottled water so not a biggie for us but they do sell the fittings that don't have the plastic taste they are just a bit higher. I also bought a cutting tool from amazon. Handy.

I had the same issue - the actual install is easy but I wanted the outside shower on the driver side of the coach. Although the shower is on that side I could not locate the water lines to splice into.....
Now I sold the Solera...
