Have you seen a CG bathtub?

Have you seen any CGs that have real bathtubs in their bathhouses? I don't mind showering night after night in my trailer and/or AI but every once in a while id love to take a long soak - reading a magazine soak. Hate to think I have to rent a hotel room just for this purpose

We have a bathtub in our Airstream. They did things that way back in 1966. Vintage trailers do have some advantages.

I know. I agree with you that there's not enough bleach in the entire world.

I had to take a shower after reading that post, in my own very spacious Airstream shower!

Felt like cooties were crawling all over me!

An old idea that has come around again, a canvas bathtub that you could take with you and fill from your outdoor shower…

Wonder if that would be considered grey water? 😏

If you use soap, then yes, it would. But if you bathe Japanese-style, wash and rinse outside the tub (such as in your shower) and just soak in the tub after you're clean, you could make the case that it's plain water. Just don't bathe your grandkids in the tub until after they're potty-trained or it might end up as black water…

Either way, there are still some places that allow dumping of gray water, where you could use the tub.

And if the campground showers are big enough, you could set up the tub inside the shower stall (maybe in the changing area right outside the shower proper), so that you drain it down the shower drain.

College Dorm Stories

My college dorm had one tub and several showers - the rule was:
  • an optimist scours the tub after bathing
  • a pessimist scours the tub before bathing
  • a lady scours the tub before AND after bathing
Of course the dorm I was in was converted from a men's dorm to a woman's dorm. We had "self watering flower pots" in the bathroom... on the opposite wall from the toilets.

-------------------------------
I made the mistake of using a hotel bathtub ONE time. It LOOKED clean so I didn't inspect it closely - just filled it with deliciously hot water and got in. And Immediately felt 1/8 inch of gritty cleanser on the bottom of the tub and on MY bottom. Even though I got up immediately and rinsed thoroughly I had a bad irritation and rash for a week. Complained to the management without result.

I too love a nice long soak, and with an Eddie Bauer I could get a kiddie pool INSIDE the back door and fill it from the kitchen sink. Might not be quite deep enough but hey, it's camping isn't it? Draining it - siphon with a regular garden hose into the drain - which could be covered with a rock, etc.

There are also soft sided hot tubs, but I bet that any campground would throw you out if they saw you using one of these. Wilderness camping - definitely Soap and Rinse first, then just soak in the clean water in the tub.

Reminds me of a college prank, back in the day. Inflatable kiddie pool set up in an unsuspecting guy's bedroom, then filled to the brim with grape Kool-Aid. Guaranteed to make a mess unless it's emptied ever so carefully. I'll leave it to your imagination whether I was perpetrator or victim of that one…

Answer: golly NO!
Expanded answer: Heavens to Mergatroid, NO!

This may not be what you asked for.. But let's expand...

I wear "beach sandals" when in CG bath houses. I then leave the sandals in the SUN to irradiate the things that hate the SUNLIGHT.

Your question does suggest other options...like the one our dear friends mention above. The outside canvas one would be best used only by one. This could be done using the plastic tarps, too. The downside being wearing a bathing suit unless you are at a "minimalist" beach .... I have only heard of existence of said beach...

Campground bathtubs .... eew. BUT, I'm not sure how one would differ substantially from a hot tub or small pool, really.... (I avoid these as well)

A nice soak sounds appealing, but a jetted tub would be out of the question - no way to clean the plumbing. At least a simple tub you could pre-clean.

Why not bring your own? Google "portable spa" and among the hits is this: Intex PureSpa Portable Bubble Massage Spa Set with 120 high-powered bubble jets

When I head to the showerhouse, I take my spray bottle of chlorox disinfectant. The shower gets a quick spriz from it before entering, and when I get done, the flip-flops also get get thorough spritz of the same stuff. I leave the flip flops outside the trailer when I get back.

Those pump bottles of spray disinfectant are great for lots of things, like cleanup around the waste hose, etc., but, yes definitely around the showerhouse. Rubber flip flops...a great invention indeed.....

EDIT: public use pools and spas have rather strict rules about proper maintainance. Proper chlorination, etc. When my son was in college, he lived in an apartment, and had a part time job doing maint at the complex. Among that was pool and spa maint. His comment to me was along the lines of, "dad, if you knew how poorly public use pools and spas are maintained, you'd never get in one again....."

I liked Protagonists idea... until I saw Gamma Dogs! It might take awhile to fill from the outside shower without running out of hot water, though.

I saw one with a tub about 3 years ago. It was For Sale: 34', triple axle, 80's AS at Camper Clinic II. It had the same flower walls and color as my shower wall, so it must have been factor done. It was a mid bath split walk thru.
