Tent Shower

5 posts in this topic

Ok. I just recently discovered these at the store and have been seeing one or two here and there at campgrounds. Thinking about getting one but interested in what the general feeling is on these among campers on here. Per the RV dumping water post, do most campgrounds or campers want the shower water on the ground near the camp site, granted its a minimal amount in most cases? Is that a big deal to lots of people?

Not to start an argument. But what is the difference between one of those and someone emptying their grey water tanks?

Personally if it is away from the water and maybe off towards the woods, no big deal.

I think that's a legitimate point. We've thought of getting one because it would be easier to wash up our small children on site versus lugging them and everything down to the shower facilities. But not sure if its necessary.

Heck if I was in your shoes I would go for it. You aren't actually going pollute anything, more like have a spot that's kinda wet. I really could see it if you were literally on the lake shore, but back in the campground away from the water you aren't going to harm anything.

just bring camp suds or dr. bonners or aveda shampoo stuff that biodegrades if you have concerns...... if the shampoos are okay, they'll say so right on the bottle...... most aren't..... but it's up to you.....

the showers are pretty slick..... i recommend 'em

    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
    • What do you have against Japanese Beetles?   Diversity is good.   We need all nationalities of beetles.  Even VW beetles.   Asian Lady Beetles, everything.  All nationality and gender identity beetles. 
    • Tysons chicken tender, Top sirloin steak, pork chop, burgers seasoned to taste - crispy crowns, tutor tots, fries - beer batter shore lunch Walleye, Crappie all better than deep fryer, oven or gas grill. Just do potato first & keep hot in oven at 250. Even Spam is better than pan fryed but if your under 40 you may not have a clue about Spam.
    • Yes spray it, or wipe it down with an oiled paper towel before you use it.  I use a little ball of aluminum foil to scrub them after the cook, but while they are still warm. They make disposable grill topper grates that are handy too when you are cooking something that is going to be really messy.
