How to Shower on the Road

We’ve been covering a lot of mobile living/traveling rigs on the blog lately, but we rarely get into the hygiene question. How do you bathe on the road? Search “portable shower” in Google or Amazon and tons of options will come up. There are plastic bags, battery-operated hoses, full-on stand-up structures — 17 pages worth of products on Amazon. But here’s one you won’t find there yet — the Road Shower. It seems like such a simple solution to a universal problem. Put a heat absorbing tube on top of your car, fill it with water and then you’ll have hot water pressurized and ready whenever you need it. Rad!

    That’s a pretty genius idea! I have a shower stall built in my van with a high-density plastic shop sink as my small shower base. The walls are lined with waterproof shower wall material. I have yet to upgrade my shower from a gravity feed “solar shower” that hangs from a hook but I’ve gotta figure something out! I’ve seen propane-heated HOT camp shower setups that interest me for in the van, based soley on the ability for a hot shower in low temperatures! This is the ideal summer shower though!!
