outside shower rod mod help needed

I'm looking for anyone that has created an outside shower rod mod for HW296. We are new to trailer camping and my husband can't see us using the shower in the camper. Any suggestions and pictures would be wonderful. Looking forward to our first week long trip in our new camper.

The outside showers are more of a rinsing off, than a full blown "butt nekkid" type of shower. However, you can get a portable "shower tent" and use the shower that way for full privacy.

Thanks AquaMan. I totally agree with you, however he didn't like the "shower tent" thing either.

Sounds like he's up the well known tributary without the proper means of locomotion then.

I thought only kids didn't want to take a bath?

So what's wrong with the inside shower that he doesn't think can be used?

He feels the indoor shower is too small for an adult to shower in. He actually feels the whole bathroom is too small for an adult. I understand where he is coming from, but its camping life not home. If you ask me the bathroom/shower is huge compared to when we were tent camping.

When I need to use the outside shower on ours, we hang a tarp between our 2 slides and a small blue one on the ground. Not meant for full blown shower but works to get cleaned up after going to the beach. This gets put away as soon as everything is dry.

When I was a kid, our trailer was so small, our bathroom was a Wet Bath. What that means is the toilet was in the shower, literally. Everything got wet and you stood right in front of the toilet. No place to turn around. So we used the bathhouse 99.9999% of the time.

Now taking showers outdoors, in a campground, the gray water police will be paying you a visit!

I think you should try the shower before saying you can't.
