We did not get the external shower option, but we are planning on getting something like this and just carrying an extra hose.

We had the shower on the driver's side on our Casita, but got it on the passenger's side with the Escape. My thought is it might actually get used there. Washing the dog behind the trailer next to the awning mat so he doesn't track dirt/mud around, washing hands after s'mores, washing dishes if needed, washing the awning mat and washing the awning itself. On the drivers side, it is inconvenient or impossible to do any of that...But that's just us...

Mine is on the passenger side where it can be used (under the awning if raining or if sun is intense to wash dishes). Many dump station have a water spigot for slinky washing and I wouldn't want to use my shower for that task anyway.

Even better . And both are a heck of a lot cheaper than $150.

Have to ask.... does washing food off dirty dishes at an outside the trailer shower at a campsite someone else will be using make good camping sense?

It used to be that the exterior shower was on the drivers side of the trailers because the water pump, toilet, sink etc is all on that side. Is it optional now?

Yes, at least it was on the build sheet for our 21 due next Feb.

we had ours put on the passenger side of our 19 and it seems like a good place for it. We haven't used it too much, but I doubt if it would get used at all on the other side. Only thing I would have changed is that it was supposed to be behind the stove, but it was put in the cabinets where you store dishes. It would be easier to see if you had any leaks, but it takes up valuable room there.
