You're definitely one of the few that I've ever heard not like it. In fact, you might be the first.

It's not as nice as our home shower, but we have pretty rocking water pressure and a nice shower head. But, for RVing- it's a world better than most that I've seen and it keeps me out of the bathhouses.

I think it's because I'm short and it hits me in the face! LOL. Maybe I'd like it more in a camper with a slightly larger shower. I'm holding onto it just in case we upgrade.

Not mods, but good things to have right off the bat...
  • Surge protector as mentioned.
  • Buy a decent awning mat - one that allows rain and dirt to drop through.
  • Bring two door mats. A heavy duty one for the outside and lighter-weight one for the entryway - otherwise you will be sweeping constantly.
Some of the things that people seem to add sooner or later:
  • X-chocks to control trailer movement when set-up
  • Vent covers as mentioned so you don't need to worry about open vents in case it rains.
  • Oxygenics shower head
  • Good sewer hose like the Rhinoflex
  • Two stick on levels for the camper so you can better level it.

As you camp you will be able to determine your camping style. Triguy, Mtnguy and the others have provided great suggestions.

No you are not. Brother-in-law decided to surprise us and changed out our shower head last Easter and we went back to what we had. We have the "rain shower" head and like it a whole lot better. 2 no's here.

Do you have a link to the shower head? I'm always open to better showers for my long luscious mane...

The newer versions come with the shutoff valve. Don't get the older version without it.

Sorry, I mean this "rain shower" head.

I have an Oxygenics. Actually doesn't have a shutoff, but I added this one right above the shower knobs:

Our next upgrade....

Or something similar. We use a smaller one to monitor the temp inside the fridge but we would like something like this to know how cold it's going to be when I go out to make bacon and eggs. Also will work nicely as a wall clock

You will want to add an extension with a valve to the fresh water tank drain so you don't need to crawl under the camper to drain the tank.

I used this to monitor refrig/freezer/outdoor temps:
