Replacing shower head. What brand?

Have a 2014 Georgetown 328TS. Our shower head is leaking at the base. What brand should we replace the showerhead with? I hope this is a common problem!

We use the oxygenics and love it. It adds a lot of "feel" pressure. I am sure there are others that are just as good though.

EcoCamel. Better flex hose than Oxygenics. Better customer support. Cost a bit more maybe. Love ours!

X2.

We really disliked the Oxygenics and it's crappy, stiff hose.
That, coupled with a larger water flow rate than the factory head made us look elsewhere. (we do a lot of boondocking where water conservation is important)

I put in an Oxygenics Fury RV and it is great. I agree that the flex hose could be better but it is fine when you are just using it as a wall mounted showerhead.

we replaced ours with the CAMCO shower head. not as much "feel pressure" but a very nice shower head and works well with the pump or city pressure.

I tried the Oxygenics and did not like it. I just bought an inexpensive Walmart shower head and hose that has 4 different settings. Love it. The Oxygenics is now my outside shower head.

Oxygenics Original. But I did not like the hose that came with it--it's not very flexible. I'm using my Salem OEM shower hose with the Oxygenics head and valve. BTW, my original shower head produced the same one gallon per minute that Oxygenics does. But the Oxygenics feels like more water.

Oxygenics

Make sure and get one w/ the metal hose, just more durable, $4 more. I had best luck w/ the original Oxtgenics lasting.

There are many Oxygenics showerhead models, but "original" isn't one of them. More often than not, people talk about the Oxygenics shower head without mentioning the specific model.

My favorite thread featured a few people going back and forth about Oxygenics. People just couldn't reconcile how one person was having such a different and negative experience than the other. Turns out the dissatisfied person, on the recommendation from the forum for Oxygenics showerhead, went to Home Depot and purchased an Oxygenics showerhead (that was made, of course, for residential showers).

Turns out that models matter.

As far as I'm aware, of the many showerhead models, only the Body Spa RV and Fury RV are made for RVs.

Both of those models tend to be highly regarded, but there are other options out there.

Body Spa Oxygenics. Tried the Fury and it leaked w/i six months, maybe bad sample.

I bought a Oxygenics and like 5Picker I did not like it. The hose is one issue but worse is that in the pause mode it still puts out enough water to shower with. Not good if you are trying to conserve water. I ended up using a Delta head just like the one we have in the shower at home with a real pause. I did use the shower head mount that came with the Oxygenics becasue it puts the shower head out away from the wall so the water comes down more than if your face.

When I said "Oxygenics Original," I was referring to BodySpa RV, not Fury RV or BodySpa Adventure RV.

We bought the Oxygenics Tri Spa... https://oxygenics.com/products/trispa-handheld/ about a year ago. The supplied hose was actually quite limp. We also installed an adjustable shower head bar. Very happy with the setup.

The Body Spa was the first model by Oxygenics I believe so that is why some older folks (like me) refer to it as the "Original"

Quite frankly I had no idea they made shower heads for the home too.

Plus the "pause" button on Oxygenics dribbles when it's "off". This makes my water pump run-pause-run-pause!!
The shut off on the EcoCamel shuts all the way off. Yes it will be a tad warmer for 2 seconds when you turn it back on but that's easy to deal with.
