Hi all
This is our quick and simple shower unit. We decided against building a shower/toilet area and went with this. Works really well, can have unlimited hot water supply if attached to a hose or more than enough from a 10/20 litre container.
Made by Shower King.

We also bought this at the same time. Really nice little unit that supplies a good amount of hot water for washing up etc...and it also has the shower attachment. Can be run anywhere with a gas/12v battery/supply of water...stream etc!

It's not exactly the Ritz but it will give us hot showers anywhere we are parked up. We're not delicate little flowers and both of us are happy to keep away from prison camps and their silly charges. Just by backing up close to a wall/fence with the rear doors open we will have enough shelter/privacy. I'm getting a shower cubicle thingy at some stage to make it a bit more "cosy" but even at this stage it'll do fine;)
Shower cubicle thingy...there's a few on flabby, this one is quite expensive but it does look good quality.

That's clever! Not seen a gas fired shower unit like that before.

Brilliant !

Didn't even know you could get that type of shower / water heater.

I was well pleased when we found these on e-bay. They are a local company to us and when we went to see them we decided to buy both options...as you do!!
Either will work for us but the "fixed" one on the back door is REAAAALLY nice....fair price too.

This is the place I got them both from. Not far from us and LOVELY people...small company, real decent.
I bought 2 versions so as we could demo them at my mates workshop that helped me to build our van. The little Geyser hot water system is great to just chuck under a seat, takes hardly any room and the shower is good too.

One problem is that setting that up in the wrong location should bring joy to the hearts of the anti-wild-camping brigade

Ive got a shower set up on my back door, which works perfect in rural locations, however mines just a shower head connected to a submergable pump and I heat the water on the hob first its surprising how little boiling water you need to add to a few litres of cold for a nice shower.

That's why we'll set it up in a place that either won't have people about or is not going to set off the miserable sods that cannot see the pleasures of not being stuck in a campsite, 5 star hotel or the confines of a house....if any one moans i'd be surprised..just gotta use your head...and chin em!!

I was puzzled at you having both.
Like Steve I've rigged up a shower using a battery powered pump. Like these RING RS1 FESTIVAL 'LEEDS' PORTABLE SHOWER BATTERIES or 12v POWER SOURCE | eBay (http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/RING-RS1-FESTIVAL-LEEDS-PORTABLE-SHOWER-BATTERIES-or-12v-POWER-SOURCE-/200715544465?pt=UK_SportingGoods_Camping_Accessori es&hash=item2ebb942791) or you can just use a spare Whale type pump. Mainly for events where it's a six month wait for the shower or where you'd rather shower in a slurry pit rather than use the facilities(?) provided.
If you need to be careful where the water goes kiddies inflatable paddling pools take up no space but catch most of the water.

We went to buy just the one on the rear door but got the 2nd one as a demo for the T5's. Handy little unit.
As it goes it fits nicely under the sink area so it now lives there.
