Location of external shower

Anyone have the external shower located on the door side? Pros and cons?

If located on the door side, you get to walk through the mud that's created and track that into the trailer.
That space is usually where I have camp chairs and tables. When boondocking, the driver side generally offers more privacy.

Or for a mere CAN$150 each you can get an exterior shower on *both* sides! As are we on our forthcoming upgrade to a new 19 ;-)

I thought the external shower was for washing your boots off before getting into the trailer. I shower inside.

Dish washing station? Foot rinsing station? Defensive position for water fights?

We like the door side because it's far enough back that we can wash our feet, or our dogs paws and still be right next to the awning mat. Plus, if you are in a campground, many times the you are parked tight next to the water/electric/sewer hookups and don't have a lot of space.

Love the fact ours is on the passenger side! Saves us many trips inside or around. Mostly used for dish water, coffee/tea water without extension.
It's very easy to put an extension to it in case you want to use it for showers etc., hooked up to the arm of the awning, which keeps the "mud" away from the entrance.

Whichever side, an 'all-weather' mat from the rear footwell of the tug is handy to stand on so mud doesn't get splashed up on your legs.
