Our son is 6'1" and big like a rugby player and he can not use the shower in our Roo19. He has to bend his neck.

I have a Roo 19.. and my shower head comes off.. hand held.. is it to hard to hold it over your head?.. I do.. I'm 5'8" and have to bend backwards to be "under" it.. so just as easy to hold it over my head.. get wet..put it back til I'm done soaping my hair.. then repeat?..

I can just imagine what will happen to the guys. We usually go to campgrounds with nice bathhouses, and the kids don't choose the rv shower there. I'm trying to get the camper set up for dry camping, and then there won't be a choice. Thanks so much you tall guys who responded, at least I know it can be done!

I will say that I did some mods to the shower to make it more usable. Without those, the stock shower might be less useful. The mods were:
- splash guards
- shower curtain clips
- plexiglass on the side of the sink cabinet

With those three mods, the curtain stays put and we don't get any water outside the shower.

I picked up the shower guards from Home Depot:

And from Amazon, the OXO Good Grips Shower Curtain Liner Splash Guard Clip

If you mean in his 3rd pic, that's a piece of plexiglass attached to the wall of the bathroom cabinet.

I love showering in our 21dk!! I'm 6'1"and when we upgraded our showerhead to the oxygenics one, my DH moved the whole thing up higher in the wall by a couple inches. I barely have to bend backwards =)
