Don't forget what happened to that bear when he tried to use a campground shower.

Oops, allow me t finish that thought. We were amazed to discover the previous owners had never used the shower. I never use the campground shower and when you run the exhaust fan there is no problem with humidity.
BTW, if you have an acrylic shower stall, the bestway to keep it like new is to wash with a mixture of dish soap, vinegar , and water. No wax needed. Never use any abrasive cleaner.

We don't camp in RV parks, we park and hook up. When we stay in them we'll use the facilities, after all we paid for them. Never had any health issues. We do use our shower when boondocking.

Whose shower do you use..

Yours. I sneak in when your sleeping and use all your hot water.

We went from a 19.5' Van to the 27FB Airstream.

After using the campground showers exclusively in the van and experiencing the good, the bad and the very, very ugly we use the Airstream 95% of the time. The exceptions are dry camping for multiple days trying to avoid filling the gray tank and exhausting the fresh water.

Other than that one of the reasons we settled on the 27FB was the size of the shower, the size of the tanks and the ease of dumping the gray water every couple of days if needed.

Hi, this is how I feel about it too. Always in my trailer and never in the public facilities.

Hi, I'm amazed at what people said they do in the above link.

Our shower

We use the shower in our Airstream, almost exclusively, we hate using public showers. We waxed our shower with auto wax, and use a squeege to clean it when we are done. The exhaust fan does an excellent job with the moisture and we are like the gentleman that stated "that is the reason we bought an Airstream". We love our shower

We almost always stay in State or National Parks or National Forests, where the showers are usually not impressive, if they exist. So, we use the shower in the Airstream. Wet down, soap up, rinse off - we can get three days out of a 28 gal tank of water. Recently, though, Becky used the campground shower at Yellowstone's Edge campground because it was roomy, new, spotless - and she wanted to shave her legs. Located about 10 miles north of the Gardiner entrance to Yellowstone, we stopped there the night before our reservation in the park started. It is the nicest private park we have ever found, and one of very few that I would return to.

This suggestion would, of course, come from you.

You go right on and shower outside, I'll pass on that.

I expect we will never use the shower in the AS. Nice to have it, and in a pinch, perfect. But, with some flip flops, any public shower works just fine!!

We like the quick in-and-out. Water & electric seems luxe to us!

70+ % - Bring your flip-flops. The campgrounds' shower is just fine. We just seem not to end up with sewer at the site. These generally are not available at state or national parks that we prefer

20 % - The outside shower after dark (don't let the campground host catch you doing this!).

< 10 % - We'll use the inside shower last night before leaving the campground only if the gray tank isn't filling ups.

It's all personal style. None of these choices are right or wrong.

Many campers (especially older ones) do not have an outdoor shower. It's definitely not an option in ours...unless I wanted to hook up a hose and use cold water only...
