You don't bathe a cat in the shower, you put him in the toilet. Stand, do not sit, on the seat cover and let the water flow. Cleans both the bowl and the cat.

To get off the seat, just move over to the sink cabinet. The cat will open the toilet seat himself. That's why you don't sit on the seat cover; there's no way you could get up fast enough not to be damaged by the cat because he is so eager to run around outside. Leave outside door open and plan to stay several days at the campground until the cat returns.

This is not advised for very young kittens as they have a habit of falling into the black tank, though they will get it clean and may come out the drain. If they don't come out the drain, turn off the water and open the valve at the bottom of the bowl. Stand back and watch for projectile kitten.

Lets see. My wife is a doctor, so she is a germ freak. We have 4 alcohol germ bottles in the car! She has used public showers before the AS but with flip flops on. Now she always uses the AS. Me, I have a sun shower room outside and have Hung the sun shower in it for the kids and myself. Now I have a hose that hooks up to the AS with a shower head on it. It is tied into the hot and cold water. I get a nice hot shower without filling up the grey tanks out side with a view on the evening sky.

This also works with small children, 2 and under.

I fully understand this system, except for the waiting around a couple of days for the cat. Sal.

Yep, us too, the shower makes a great storage room for the vacuum, Keurig coffee pot, wife's junk, etc. If we were forced to use it, we would, but we have not crossed that bridge yet. Most campground showers are so much larger and one can spread out.

Children always come back in a few minutes. This is the one drawback

We LOVE our Airstream shower and only use campground showers when necessary. We both are in the medical field as well, and fungal infections from someone else's feet just don't interest me in the least. Could be that we are both under 5'10" ...larger peeps might have less comfort than we do....

I copied these numbers from a statistical data web site.

Men's Average Height 69.4 inches
Men's Average Weight 194.7 lbs

I am about 1 inch shorter than this height and 50 lbs lighter. I have plenty of room in our trailer's shower. In fact I had plenty of room in our 15' trailer's shower.

The solution to this problem is obvious. All people above this average size need to start practicing being smaller. If they devote themselves industriously to this endeavor, we will be able to entirely eliminate those disease spreading campground showers.

Shorty, I'm glad I'm still taller than average, though the averages keep increasing; slightly above average wt. (all muscle, of course). This probably accounts for my belief the shower is kind of small, but ok for daily use. I can see how someone 6'2" or obese would feel really cramped.

My problem with it is the wheel well that gets in the way of my feet when I turn around. When I see showers without that wheel well, I wish I had one like it.

My wife never complains about the shower. She used to be 1/2" shorter than me, but is shrinking and is now 1 1/4" less. She won't tell me how much she weighs. So I guess she fits better than me (smaller feet may make a difference).

But the answer is to use the campground showers, get some loathsome disease and you will loose weight and fit better in the trailer. To get short, keep bending while carrying heavy weights and you will probably blow out a couple of discs and that may help you get shorter as the vertebrae scrap against each other. Also walk around with a 50 lb. weight on your head while jumping up and down. Of course you may still have a problem with the toilet if your knees hit a wall. The special reduction knee replacement may be a solution for that and the shower. Lop a few inches off your tibia or fibula or whatever that bone is and no problems.

We use our airstream shower, we are both tall but it works beautifully. Sometimes we do take all of the kids to campground showers to get them over with quicker since there are nine of us, which takes forever one at a time! That's also lots of hit water and humidity.
