Looks like you could set that right on top of a coleman stove or similar and heat it up.

Don't forget to bring your biodegradable soap.

We got our "shower" today! We filled it, and test heated it on the gas stove, took about 12 minutes for it to heat up to 100F

We stuck the shower nozzle from a solar shower on the tip of the spray handle (in place of the wand) and took it into the shower to test. I was able to take a very sparing, but thorough shower with the 2 gallons of warm water. All we are going to do is add a longer hose, and it is ready to go! The spray nozzle has a squeeze trigger, that allows you to use more or less pressure so you don't just run out your tap all at once. Great find!!

Now grab one of the $30 shower tents at Wally and you can really set up a deluxe bathroom when boondocking.......

Already had that in mind!! I am just bargain hunting since we don't need it right away. It's one of my favorite past times...

That looks like a good idea to have a roll around water container, even if you don't use it to shower. I filled our 6 gallon container the other day, and could barely pick it up. I like your shower idea, too!

I went to smaller water containers in boating for that reason (when I have to carry them). The typical 6-gallon "jerry jug" is a killer when it's full.

I looked at the Reliance carrier that was linked to. It looks good, although of course it made me think of yet another option

I was just thinking that if one were to use more than one jug, then it might make sense to have non-wheeled jugs, and one single foldable cart or dolly that could be used on all of them interchangeably. Then you'd have the option of larger wheels too, if you tend to camp at places with unpaved terrain.

I like that idea, especially if both the jug and cart are foldable/collapsible. Space is always a concern, and in my case I use such jugs mainly for non-drinkable water, so not having to store a tank full of air while travelling is always a plus.

Edit: Here's one that folds down, with retractable wheels, 150lb capacity.

I couldn't get that link to work, but here is one that holds 150lbs and folds flat. Not very expensive either.

Same one, "Magna Cart". Also here and here, or use any Cdn postal code (H0H 0H0) on the first link.

Hi all,

While checking out the info. on April's Zodi shower, I found that the company also makes a simple shower stall. I kind of liked it because it doesn't have a roof. It has always perplexed me, why a roof on a shower stall? I would think that without a roof the stall would dry faster, and the sun would feel great.
Anyway, another thought. Are these stalls (any brand) made to withstand the weight of a sun shower? I've only used my sun-shower for simple sponge baths and washing dishes, but my husband is thinking a stall would come in handy.
What brand do you all have, how do you like it, and how sturdy is it???

Thanks, and Happy Holidays, Marjie

We have been taking "practice" showers with the new 2 1/2 gallon tank to make sure it will actually suit our needs, and I have found that if you do a fast first rinse to get wet, soap up and shampoo, then rinse, you still have just enough water to slap a dab of conditioner in, and get one more good head to toe rinse off before the water taps out. Definitely adequate for camping needs. I also found a 3 1/2 gallon tank for sale on line, it was about $90 or so, if you don't mind splurging for another gallon. Definitely worth having!
