I like the idea of the suction cup holder. Do you have a link to that? With the quick connect to the outlet of the taps, it is quite adaptable, that's for sure.

Not sure like the idea of showering with a bathing suit on though, how do you get everything clean?

We have a large stainless food service container that we use for a sink at the picnic table. It sits perfectly on a single-burner butane stove and takes only a few minutes to heat the water for dishes.

It's sort of like camping.
Well, then it sounds like we are in agreement. We'd rather have an outside sink than inside one

An outside sink (basin) for us is a must too. We usually bring two as they stack together nice. Plus, they make a great carrying container for taking stuff elsewhere, like food to the fire pit for cooking and eating.

I got the suction cup shower head holder at ETI. You can see it on the side of the trailer in the picture that I posted of my buddy showering. It's above and to the right of the towel hook ( also suction ).

Does it work with the new style taps too?

Looking at that photo, and with what Carl said, it seems we must be the only ones who shower nekkid.

Nope we do too, maybe it's an Alberta thing.

In the past, I have strung up a small tarp around the exterior shower area and used it in campgrounds that did not have their own shower facilities. Didn't use a bathing suit and hardly any other campers passing by would scream and run off.

This I might do. Doug is right, this must be an Albertan thing.
