If you need a container for your shower water, try a four gallon aqua-tainer. It sits low so the water will have a bit of head to drain. At about 32 pounds when full of grey water, it can be emptied into a toilet at the campground or into a bigger container for later disposal. Four gallons is reported to be enough for two people taking navy showers.

Surely you jest! 32 lbs. that would be like lifting 3 sets of my dogs, and then dragging it/ them to a campground toilet. Someone will just have to call the campground police on me.

Its My 1st camper with a shower & I love it. Yes I could survive with just the outdoor shower but after all these years using shower houses, I'm glad I can shower in the privacy & comfort of my camper.

There isn't a holding tank so you'll need to either drain it onto the ground or into a container. I have a grey water container that is on wheels. Sorry I've had it for decades so don't know what it's called but you could probably order one online if you don't live close to a RV store.

Bubble windows in roof design

I'm sure that the folks who have the dinette set up totally understand why they have the double bubble window on that side. If you attempt to seat 4 folks at the dinette (maybe to play cards on a nasty weather day) the folks sitting on the inside will find the bubbles create the needed headroom for someone to sit there. I know it sounds weird...but it really does allow someone to sit there comfortably and have the headroom needed.

@daveinpickerington--have you gotten good at stowing your portable outhouse? I have a similar-sized one (different brand and camo-patterned), and it was comic watching me trying to put it back in the round carrying case. The documentation was no help. I finally found a YouTube video that showed the tricky wrist motion needed to tame the potty monster.
LOL - Lee!! This is the very same privacy tent I bought the first time & after having it up a few times, decided it was a product for someone less challenged than me....so I gave to my DH for truck camper & bought an easier model that pulls up and easily folds down in very little time. The visual anyone mightve seen me with the Cabela brand wouldve been hysterically funny at times. grr.

To tell the truth, Tamara, I haven't taken that little shower/potty tent out of its case in over a year. I think if we decide we need something like it I'll have to get one like yours. Meanwhile the one I have bounces around in the back of the truck and serves as an object lesson about impulse buying. So it's not completely useless.
