Outside shower

Postby Jimbo » Wed May 19, 2004 5:15 pm

Anyone ever build in an outside shower like they have on some popups? Just curious. I don't even have my first finished and I am planning on my second.
Started many, finished none... Bought a TTT <Sigh> ;)

I too am interested in this idea. Best I came up with for the beach was a 2 gallon sprayer filled with water...... or use a 12 volt pump, tank etc.
The silverbag thing the walmart/acadamy sells .not interested cuz trees dont grow tall on the beach.

I have the Zodi Shower system (Large 2 Propane bottle) http://www.zodi.com/hot_top.html and it works great – very hot water, and yes in about 5 seconds.

I just bought the Colman model and it works great. I bought it at Sam's where it is a little cheeper than from the Colman site. We all took a shower on our last camping trip with out recharging the self contained battery. I need to find a design for a "stall" for the tear.

PahaQue Tee Pee

Postby tomtrifik » Mon Jun 14, 2004 6:20 pm

I use one of PahaQue's Tee Pees for my Shower & Porta Pottie. I picked one up on eBay last year for 1/2 price. http://www.pahaque.com/

It works great with my Coleman battery powered shower, but PahaQue also has a nice shower system, too. It just takes up more room than I'm willing to allocate for now.

check out this link for a great instant up shower/porta pottie shelter. They are very lightweight and sets up instantly with a neat spring steel frame. I got mine at CABELAS for $49.95 but can probably be found many places!

I'm thinkin' that the heater on that page would be perfect for a TD too. That might be the one I am lookin' for, it won't take up much room and no flame inside to worry about.
I think maybe a small side door with a slide out shelf and you wouldn't have it sitting on the ground. Hook it directly to a 20# bottle and you'd be good to go. The price is right too.

8) I use the Cabelas privacy shelter with shower bag and works great. Had to heat the water a couple of times and poor it in the solar shower bag though when there wasn't enough sun shine to warm it up. Oh and good news there is a Cabelas going in across from the new football stadium in Glendale, AZ it's going to be a big complex with lake to test small boats and such, can't wait.

Kai--did you get the Hot Water on Demand unit? I was planning on using this as my sink water source, as well as buying the optional shower head.

Now that I have a tear and am camping again, wish I'd kept the hot water bottle heater I had... Clear one side, black on the other. Would be able to lay it on top of the tear easily, in the sun, to heat it up.....
