Coleman battery powered camp shower. $24
Coleman 5 gal water tote $6.95
Being able to have a hot shower when I camping -- priceless.

This test was done in the privacy of my house; the Play Pac needs real curtains, yet.

Tried everything out and I'm pleased. The connections seep a bit of water, so that will have to be taken into account when I finish planning the shower in the Play Pac. Got the water way too hot on this first test, but that's much better than too cold in my book.

It took just under 5 gals to get clean, wash my hair and brush my teeth (did that at the sink). I dawdled a bit, wanting to see how long the water actually lasted. I didn't turn it off, which would have allowed two people to do quick showers.

Too cool.

Plotting my next adventures...

That sound like quite a saving other than buying a 17 footer with a shower. Yours in Bolering. Jim

Practice IN the trailer now. Co-ordinating getting dressed, working around that big tub of water on the floor, wrestling a shower curtain in a small space.. and managing to stay dry and keep the trailer dry is a skill.

I can see possibilities in putting a shower tent just outside the door of the trailer, using it for the PortaPotti and for showering. I would probably only worry about showering on a hot weekend, so going outside at night wouldn't be bad. Inside, better, but not practical, I don't think, in my trailer.

The shower water/heater thing sounds great, though.
