Nope, my mommy taught me to use the toilet or a urinal. I do use the outdoors sometimes.

If you are at a campground that has shower facilities why not use them?
If you are at an area that does not have full hookups, ie maybe electric & water but no sewer, you need to conserve? Think of the poor bastards in California where there is a drought.
Buy an oxygenics shower head, use the shut off feature and learn to take navy showers.
Most of all, stop your whining, it is camping, if you want all the luxury stay home

Remember, not all of us are camping. I very rarely "camp". We travel and take our roving hotel/apt often, but only "camp" a couple of times a year.

I've determined there are about 6 main categories of rvers.
1. Those who set up camp for the sake of camping. Enjoying the outdoors.
2. Those who travel and use and RV ad their motel room.
3. Full timers who choose to live in their RVs.
4. Tailgaters. Those who use an RV as party central for racing, ball games and festivals.
5. Cheap housing. Those who live in campers for cheap housing.
6. Work campers. Those who live in RVs while they travel from job to job.
Maybe a few others but I see these regularly. I am mostly 1&2.

You might also check the flow rate on your shower head. Get one that is adjustable in addition to having a shut off button. That way you can get a blast of water when you need it (or want it) and a trickle when you don't.


PS My wife takes 30-45 minute showers at home and quick showers in the RV. It can be done.

I could see a whole scale between 1 and 2. At the 2 end, I see the people that pull their camper to their inlaws house so they don't have to stay in the house, and have never been anywhere they're not in somebodies driveway.

For me, camping for the sake of camping (the 1 end) means being out in tents in the middle of winter, cooking everything over whatever deadwood you could pull from the brush. Then again, I grew up in a scouting household.

My view is that camping in a trailer is cheating at camping. But as long as I got tired bones and whiny kids, I'm gonna cheat. I'd put us down as a 1.7 for camping, but in a trailer with full hookups, AC, etc...
