It is very possible for 2 to take quick showers using the on and off switch normally found on the spray handle. But if upgrading the hot water tank you would need to make sure you have the grey water tank equipped to hold that extra water as well.
But the big question is when & how often are you going to actually be using the shower in the trailer? If I am not mistaken the Lil Snoozy
hot water tank is electric which means you will need to be camping in a campground that has power in order to use - correct? If thats the case I suspect you will find most of camp grounds with power also have showers and its been my experience that the majority of folks that have small showers in there trailers regardless of the size of the hot water tank tend to use the campground showers rather than the trailers. Helps with keeping the amount of water going to the grey tanks manageable (don't need to drain off the grey tank if staying for more than a few days) and you get a much longer shower and don't need to wipe down the whole bathroom after! ;-)
I use my trailers shower often but that is due to camping off the grid and the hot water tank runs of propane
but I can think of only 3 occasions in the past 6 years (well over 500 days of camping with electrical
hook ups) where I have used the trailers shower instead of the campground shower - once due to the bad state of the shower (read dirty), another due to the campground power being out and they had no hot water and the other while camping in Washington State & the ranger station did was not open up early enough to get the special coins needed to shower.
