Question Anyone Swap Their Outside Shower

Saw Rick on YouTube "GoingNowhereFast" swap his outside shower for an alternative with a spring hose and multi-spray option head. Once the hose is removed it won't leak/run the water out. His unit cost $50 on Amazon. Any alternatives you've used? Thanks

The only time we use the outside shower is to draw water for cooking or cleaning at the picnic table. The stock fixture is adequate for that purpose.

At one point we used the water heater and drew hot water for dish washing from the outside shower. But we found it more efficient and effective to just heat the water on the 2 burner camp stove. We rarely turn on the water heater.

just our experiences

My outdoor shower is only used as a spare part when the hose in my interior shower fails. Other than that, we don't much use for it. If our dogs get dirty, we just throw them in the lake. If my hands get dirty, I wash them inside the camper. Muddy shoes? I leave them outside and let them dry cuz they will get muddy next time I use them so what's the point?

Two things I can't figure out, outdoor showers and outdoor kitchens. If you are camping and want to cook outdoors it should be over a camp fire or a bbq grill....everything else is done indoors.

What's the next trend? Outdoor RV toilets?

I'm with you on the kitchen (and toilet). But we do use the shower to rinse the sand and salt off. And might use it more if it functioned better.

There is only a few places where you can actually shower outdoors and I highly recommend it. Great feeling indeed.

I use my outside shower for the occasions where I have to wash my dogs when they get into something that is too nasty to allow them into the inside shower.

Last weekend I was cooking some jalapeņo poppers stuffed with chorizo and cheese on my smoker and I forgot to put thee grease drippings bucket under the grease drain. Before I knew it, I had three dogs with orange chorizo grease all over their heads and they were all rolling around in the leaves and scrubbing their heads on my patio mat trying to get it off — i guess the jalapeņo sting was bothering them. Dinner was ready, guests were waiting, and there I was, giving three dogs a shower.

Out door shower

I actually use my outdoor shower as a shower.
When we are boondocking in Elk Camp, afternoons are hot,a nd dry. the season is also 30 days long, so I want to extend my time between moves-to-dump, as long as possible. Showering outside is part of that. Avoids filling the grey water tank so quickly.
We are isolated, so a curtain isn't a real necessity, but we still put up the little shower tent. some duck boards or flat rocks on the floor and it's great. The tent is dark so it warms up inside if there is a chill in the air.
Only problem is that the outside shower is in the back of the trailer, instead of where it would be handy, near the Garage man-door.

We use our outdoor shower as a shower. DW and myself have taken outdoor showers in December (Ocala NF area). Had privacy and it was very enjoyable. We've also used the outdoor shower to rinse off from being in the lake or river. We have a teak deck section to stand on so we don't end up with muddy feet. I prefer an outdoor shower as opposed to an indoor one to help keep the humidity to a minimum inside the camper.

Would rather be outside then inside so love the outside kitchen! WOULD NEVER use the camp ground bbq without a lot of cleaning and still feel unsafe. Only reason we got a tt is to do our crafts and such for resell while we travel, setting up tent got old.
