Camping showers are essential for campers who want to shower outdoors, in the camp site. A typical camping shower is made up of a shower head, a long hose or tubing system, and a water container, which is usually a bag or a bucket. The water container is filled with water that travels through the tubing system and is sprayed through the shower head.
Types of Camping Showers
Kinds of Camping Showers include the following:
Types according to power
Plastic solar camping showers
Plastic solar camping showers are also known as sun showers. They use the heat of the sun to make the water warm. Most models have plastic tubings attached to the large bag on one end and shower heads on the other. They usually require a few hours to warm up, making them ideal for standing and group camps. Most models are fragile and do not usually last long.
Propane-powered camping showers
Propane-powered camping showers feature coils and gas burners. They work like home water heaters. They provide temperature-controlled water according to the temperature and the condition of the environment.
Types according to design
Old canvas camp showers
Old canvas camp showers are the most common types of camp showers. They are filled with water and installed above the head using a rope. Most old canvas camp showers do not generate warm water. The more expensive models now come as plastic solar or propane-powered types.
Vehicle-mounted camping showers
Vehicle-mounted camping showers use a water source and a water-cooled engine. They are designed to be mounted on RVs, camping vans, and trucks. They are connected to lakes, streams, and rivers for unlimited water supply. Most models can heat cold water. Most models are easy to install and are durable.
Choosing Camping Showers (Buying tips)
Heater: Choose a camping shower with a built-in heater if you are going to camp at night or going to a location with cold weather.
