I purchased a large popup shower tent to use it outside and I prefer the outdoor shower. I've only used my Basecamp shower inside when it was very very cold. And then the shower was so quick I would have been better off just heating water on the stove and doing a quick sponge bath.
If you can find a trailer that already has a built-in shower you're better off. Since you have to get a small trailer, you may rather have the extra space for living area. But I'd recommend you at least find a trailer with hot water system, or add one. Then using something like the drain pan or the dog bath I used, will be easier to set up inside. I'll probably add the water heater to mine down the road.
Good luck with your search!
