Outdoor shower

I am thinking of making and outdoor shower enclosure. So rather than re-invent the wheel I though I would check and see if anyone had done this yet. I am thinking about a neck high PCV pipe suround and not sure what to use for a floor. The key would be that it could be all taken apart and stored. Any one done this already and have a complete set of plans?

Why not just buy one at Cabela's? They have two to choose fromů

One has no floor at all, necessitating the use of a bath mat of some sort if it's not set up in the grass, the other has a fabric floor with gaps around the edges.

Take a look at Amazon. They sell one and probably have some reviews. Don't reinvent the wheel.

Also, google "changing tent for models." (I'll try to post the link below, but not sure if it'll work 'cause it's super long)

Just beware of the ones that twist in order to fold. I used to have one and it was like wrestling a bear to twist it closed.

My time tent camping at Burningman I set up a toilet/shower.
The floor was a smooth (no splinters) wood pallet, I pounded 4' rebar for anchors for the PVC pipe that I used on the corners to support military camouflage walls. I used this vs a tarp because the wind will pass thru it, needing less structure to secure it.

for the floor, you can take thin strips of wood - 1" x 1" x 24". Then screw/nail alternating strips under them. You stand on the wood, and it keeps your feet of the ground as the water goes through. There are commercial versions of this that are made, and they lock together. I will probably build mine out of cedar or Ipe, and stainless screws, and make it in a way I can store in the trailer somewhere.

I'm considering using one of the access panels on my trailer and converting it to an outside shower - but mainly to wash off sand and mud, not an actual shower.

Rob.

I say, if you need a shower tent, you haven't driven far enough down that dirt road yet.
