Taking showers in the Roo

How many of you take showers in the Roo/Shamrock hybrid campers? I'm not really interested in none hybrids as they are a little different beast.
We always camp where there is a bathhouse. I figured if we use the camper shower it could help cause bunk condensation that I read so much about.
We have never had an issue w/ condensation so far even while camping with 4 adults, 2 kids and 2 dogs.
Sometimes it would be nice to let the kids shower real fast when the campground bathrooms are really dirty.

We only use it when no showers house is available. Otherwise we march in flip flops carrying a shower sack.

Our family is split on this. My 18 year old son hits the bath house. The 14 & 16 year old girls will use either the camper or the bath house. I use the camper. My wife was using the bath house until she tried the camper and realized the water was hotter and the shower head was better in our 23IKSS. Now she prefers the camper too. A few simple mods in the shower took it from being practically useless to something that is very usable. I'm 6'6" and about 210lbs. It is certainly not spacious - more like getting an MRI, but I like that it is clean, I like that it is mine, and as long as I don't drop the soap, it works great. You will have to take start & stop showers and if several of us are going to be showering I turn on both the gas and the electric on the hot water heater. Doing that, the HWH keeps up just fine.

All the time for us. No condensation issues. Crack the fan and it will pull any residual moisture out in no time.

As long as your (Roo/Sham) has a (Real Fan) not just a (Tiny Noisemaker) and it is turned ON while Everyone is taking showers,the condensate should be removed! Youroo!!

This is great to know. Guess I'll add shower mods to our camper's to do list.
(Plexiglas on sink cabinet, tub/shower guard, shower curtain, and maybe a new shower head).
This will help so much when showers are full from busy holiday weekends.
We'll be at John Pennikamp in FL Keys over Labor Day which means a full campground.
Thanks everyone!
