Hey, don't judge till you've been there! Used to dry camp at the racetracks (NASCAR) in my pop-up. The pop-up didn't have a potty. Not all the racetrack campgrounds had bathhouses & when they did, they could be a good distance away. I had three different shower/potty tents I took with me at various times. Had a Thetford flushable potty I used. Much handier when you have to go in the middle of the night. Had a very nice shower/potty tent from Paha-Que that DID have a crescent moon on the door so you knew exactly what it was.

Ha ha. I wanted to get one of these for out outside shower...extend the hose and save the gray water use. I guess I am kinda crazy... I thought it was a pretty good idea. I am not sure what the campground would say.

I tried several times to figure out how to use the shower/potty tent with the outside shower on the pop-up. But the spray head didn't have an on/off button so the only way to turn the water off was to turn the tap. Didn't want to drain the fresh water tank by leaving the water running while taking a shower - and didn't want to have to leave the door unzipped so I could reach out and turn the water on & off. So I just used the shower bags. (The potty tent had a "loft" to hold the bag.) However, I did fill the bag up with water heated by the PUP's hot water heater rather than just letting the sun warm it.

Oh, and I was VERY aware of casting shadows on the tent walls in bright sunlight. Always tried to hang the bath towels where they would add some more privacy.

Lol. Shadows. Mine has a shutoff valve. I am sure you can pick up that type cheaply.
Mmm. The shadows. They would not look at me once. It burns. It burns.

We use a shower tent a lot at the lake. I bought an adapter fitting for the outside shower which I can screw a 10' fresh water hose to. I then just put a garden nozzle on the end of the hose.

We used a similar set up when we had a PUP. Actually we even upgraded to a 2 room version. One side had we placed a cassette toilet for night time use. (Wife insisted as she was the one that had to escort kids to the public toilets at night prior to the set up.) The other side we ran the outside shower. Just one small flap so the shower hose could be ran in and the person using could operate the water valves. Ours was red in color and not as subject to the silhouettes.
