First shower in the 21fbrs

Took our first showers in the camper today. Not even sure I know how to describe it.

I think it's like taking a shower with a sunburn, you have to do it but you are glad when it's over since it's painful.

Thankfully due to advice from here I added a shower liner and splash guards so the water stayed in the enclosure. I also upgraded the shower head to an Oxygenics. With that said, pretty sure that the shower liner may have taken liberties with me

The only complaint I have is the stupid plastic molded shelves hold your travel size stuff until water hits it, then it's on the floor. Which may have led to my comments about the shower liner above

Thanks for letting me vent

Shower liner got a little "grabby", did it?
My condolences.
My Sunseeker shower is just large enough for me to bang elbows and knees around.
You will get the hang of things.

Those "shelves" are worthless. I bought a shower curtain with pockets at K-Mart. Works pretty well.

PS Don't even think about bending over to wash your feet.

I worked out of my 21FBRS, nuclear powerhouses, government nuclear projects, paper mills and oil projects. I get very dirty and completely understand complaints about the 21FBRS shower!!! I wish who ever designed it had to use it daily. That said I have my solution which works most of the time. Weather permitting I use the outside shower. Camping Supply sells a shower head holder that goes on the side of the trailer. Also shower curtain circle can be installed....works except in cold weather.

My son in law uses the outside shower when boondocking. He bought a hula hoop, hangs it from a tree branch next to his trailer and got hooks and a shower curtain. Stands on a wooden platform to keep tootsies from touching the ground. Works for him.

OK here is my advice (for whatever it is worth) seeing that aside from size which is what you would have known from the start, you have made the right upgrades (especially the Oxygenics).

Get a shower caddy like this one. It, along with the Oxygenics, is an automatic mod in my last 2 RVs.



The shelves in the liner typically only has a bar of soap or someother inconsequential thing, or is not used at all.

Thanks for the laugh! I've had exactly the same experience with my shower. That's why I always investigate a park's shower facilities before booking.

I guess that's the advantage to being bald. My shower supplies consist of the following:

Bar of soap
