We use the all-weather mat from the back seat of the RAV4 to stand on. Don't have an enclosure. I can't imagine how that would mount on the trailer without supporting legs. Why not just place already available enclosures next to the trailer?

Your info says trailer is a Casita, BTW.

I was a big fan of the navel shower until Laura told me the rest of me was beginning to smell.

Thanks Glen,

Sometimes we make it more complicated then it needs to be. I corrected profile. Have an Escape 19 on order. I note the shower attachment on the side of the Escape. Is it just one of those sticky back attached ones?

Those are suction devices that you can get at ETI. Need to clean the trailer surface ( I use Bon Ami spray for window cleaning ) and wipe the suction cup before attaching.

Glenn, where did you get the picture of George Clooney showering and why is he using your ID to post?

Here's a selection of curtain rods than could be easily adapted to the outside of an RV, either as a fold down or removable. Let us know if you get one and how it works out.

In the 5 years we have owned a fiberglass trailer I have never used the indoor shower.
If the CG has showers I use the CG's shower. If we are camping in a desolate area I use the outdoor shower and I am not concerned about a little gray water draining on the ground.
When we are fishing in some remote area, I take a dunk in the lake.

In 3 years of owning our trailer we have never used the inside shower. We have it rigged, but what a mess it makes and I don't carry enought water to make it practical. When we camp off the grid and do often, we do a sponge bath. Works for us

On the other hand, my small Sunrader Adventure pop-up motorhome had an even smaller wet shower and we used it all the time. By using a shower wand with an on-off control we could get a nice hot shower using less than 3 gallons of water each from a 12 gallon tank. Worked for us.

I have both on my Casita, use the inside one for showering and the outside one for washing dishes. Wouldn't want to be without either one of them but if given a choice I would prefer the inside shower for sure. I could always do the dishes in the little kitchen sink if I had to but I usually make to much of a mess!

I usually do my dishes outside too due to a small one bin indoor sink, but my one friend gave me grief about the gray sink water I was tossing out on the grass.....really??? since when does the food we eat and the dawn dish soap polute the earth more than your excursion you use to pull your 30 ft trailer she used :/ sometimes I just don't get it.....so now I'm always a little concerned people are watching me

Food particles in the dish water attract rodents. That's why parks often provide dish washing stations and require campers to use grey water containers and dumps.
Think about it. Every day, different campers maybe, but every day, campers dumping grey water ( probably on the same bush ).

The first time you pull into a campsite and get yourself all set up and discover the swarming flys and other bugs there & sometimes a bad smell, due to the previous camping feeling its ok to dump their dirty dish water in the bushes beside the camping spot or on a green space you will understand why it is not something those wishing to leave a small foot print would not do.

Yeah it comes down to "over-use". Any popular area just sees so much use these days, with the huge population of people.

Same reason you have to pack your poop with you on overnight river float trips. There's only so much space between the cliff walls along the river. Typically there's someone in every campsite, many if not most days in the summer. That's a lot of poop. Even two people peeing in the same place, day after day all summer long, and man that's gross.

Unfortunately, someday that's going to be the reality on backpacking trips, too. Carrying your poop on your back. I hate the idea, but I also hate showing up to a campsite and not being able to walk any direction without running into toilet paper and worse.

When I'm in the desert, I use my solar shower, outside, and let the water go onto the sand. I avoid areas that see a lot of use, and no one is going to notice 3 gallons of water with a little biodegradable soap, typically just once in any spot I stay, or if I stay long enough, once every 3 days, probably. Someday I won't feel ok about that anymore, as those areas see more use.

Outside showering is great. You don't need to be naked to shower. Sure it might get slightly awkward when you go under your shorts to do some scrubbing down there, but no one can see anything they shouldn't, and it's easy to look away.

I agree with some other posts: if I had to choose one or the other, I'd choose inside shower. But both would be great. I might rig something on my camper at some point. But until then I have a solar shower in case I want an outdoor shower.
