We are buying the 300 gallon tank as well. I will hard pipe it. I do plan on showering in my camper. That's what it is there for. Much easier than packing up the clothes and soaps etc. I'm all about relaxing and not making a chore out of the easy stuff even if it costs me a few more dollars. That's the main reason I am getting the big tank. I can save $200 and get a portable to drag and dump at the dump station or I can just pay them and come pump me out once a month or so. I choose relax .

What is the reason people don't shower in their camper? Is it just to save on pump outs?

If I wanted to use a shower house, I would be a tent camper - my own bed and bath ...one major reason for buying the RV 😉

Very true! That is why I love these forums....to get different points of views and opinions on things such as these. Friends that we have at the same campground say to shower in the campground showers and I agreed but I guess I didn't know why I was agreeing.

Some don't want to spend the money on the big tank and/or get pumped out as much. Just personal preference. No way is right or wrong.

Yup, dump black tank first, then the 2 grey tanks to help flush the 'stuff' thru the hose. The campground furnishes the in ground tank which is pumped twice a month as part of the seasonal fee.

Are most of ya'll sites with out plumbed sewer?
All the sites I've looked at had sewer plumbed. It would be a no go for me if it didn't.

I suppose some might not like the navy shower too. At the shower house you can turn it on and let it go until you are done. In the camper you will have to wet down, shut water off, soap up and then turn water on to rinse. It's not for everyone. And without a proper water pressure regulator and oxygenics shower head the rv shower is less than stellar too sometimes.

Thanks again everyone! So it seems several of us on this thread are from WI. When does your campground open up and when will you have your first weekend at the camper? My campground is still covered in snow!!!
