If staying for more then 3 days I use the campground shower and my wife uses the AS shower. It is because I do not want to dump until we are leaving. I have always found teh showers at the state and national parks to be clean but at times very umid

Well, we've been in this campground for a couple weeks now and using the AS shower. She's 5'11 and I'm 6'1. It's a little cramped, but we're used to this kind of arrangement. We're sailors, too. Wish I could get Airstream to do the interior of our catamaran.

My 5 yo daughter is my camping buddy, so I use the shower in the AS when she is with me because I cant leave her by herself. If the DW goes along, I will use the campground facilities. I agree with monkeypants, the AS shower is doable, but at 6'-7" its really tight.
I usually leave the rooftop exhaust fan running all the time when we are camping. If the weather is nice, i keep the bathroom window open to control humidity. so far i haven't had too much of an issue with moisture.

Unlike the "glamour" baths in anything basically larger than us (and interstate), we obviously have the "all in one". We have always taken showers in our AS. I know it's clean and it's a good incentive to limit the number of s'mores I may eat! I'm 5'2...he's 5'8. If we couldn't fit properly, we wouldn't have gotten it! As for water, we've never run out. So we conserve...

Also, it doesn't get humid because the bathroom door opens up right to the entrance door - best ventilation!
btw - I like the 2012 16' bathroom door location.

Whose shower do you use?

The criteria that both of my coaches had to meet was a comfortable bathroom as I detest the typical campground facility. Since acquiring my Overlander in 1995, I have only used the campground facilities once and that was only because my water pressure regulator had malfunctioned . . . I was very fortunate to have been staying at my favorite campground in Kieler, WI as their facilities are meticulously cleaned and checked frequently throughout the day. Both of my coaches have larger air conditioners than would usually be installed on a coach of its size as I wanted to be able to control humidity, and this has worked wonderfully for me . . . never really have an issue with interior humidity with the air conditioning in operation.

I travel a lot for work and stay in hotels... I guarantee a campground bathroom (minus Sunday morning) is probably cleaner than the beds at Marriott (insert your favorite hotel brand here, its all the same).

If you have Netflix, check out the Jim Gaffigan stand up "Mr Universe" hotel bit. The whole video is great and PG.

I'm more concerned about High Fructose Corn Syrup than bathroom floors... Just don't drop the soap!

I have the same AS as you do, and I agree about the door location. But I have seen some advertised with the bathroom door opening to the center of the AS toward the galley! What were they thinking! lol

It's just the two of us, so I'm not usually to concerned about water usage.
I've taken my share of showers in CG facilities, but they are usually not my first choice. I much prefer the shower in the trailer. Even when we had the Bambi.
I'm 6'6' and 235, so I sit down in the shower in the AS. I don't use much water.
My wife,, she uses a bit more water, and I don't think has ever used a CG shower facility.
