Hi: All...We had 2 with our 5.0. Inside and out. We have the same setup with our 5.0TA. I've never had the nerve to use the outside one nor the chance to use the inside one. Always use CG facilities. We pay for them too!!! Alf

It seems to me that if you are staying in a campground with showers, it almost certainly also has a water supply and a dump site, so tank capacity of the trailer (at least for a short stay) is not an issue for reasonable trailer shower use.

We do normally use campground showers rather than the RV, just for the size of the shower stall.

On our two month trip we used the shower only a few times but we were really glad we had it when we needed it.

Good way to look at it, pretty much sums up my thoughts too.

It is like a spare tire, it is good to have one in case the need arises.

In the 4 years we have owned a fiberglass RV we have never used our trailer's shower . We have had problems with the CG showers only once . We seldom camp at sites with sewer hookups and hauling the trailer up to the dump station every other day is a PITA IMHO.
The showers in most campgrounds where we have stayed are cleaned everyday or even twice a day and are often cleaner than the ones I have seen in people's homes . I understand people's aversion to public facilities but we have learned to live with them .We have used our outdoor shower for a quick rinse off

If there is a campground shower, I usually use it. I did spend a month dry camping at Quartzite & the Imperial Dam BLM area where I used the shower a couple of times, but took very short navy showers to conserve water.

Like others, the main use for my outdoor shower has been to wash things too big or dirty to do in the kitchen sink.

We use our 5.0 shower all the time when we're camping. I hate public showers. Only slightly better than public toilets IMHO. It's a great little shower and I get to clean the bathroom without even trying :-)
