To my knowledge, exactly the opposite has been Wallys ambition. ;-)

But you are right, it is a question of personal preference.

2 persons every day. We filter our incoming water and the only shortcoming is we cannot shower together.

My hubby is 6'4" and rarely uses it. When we have full hook up, I do, otherwise, I use the facilities with flip flops and a shower bag in tow. Trying to dry and balance while getting underwear and flip flops back on, I came up with a solution of using small hand towels, bought at a thrift shop, to stand on while doing the above. It has worked really well for both of us. They just get tossed into the dirty laundry and washed when the laundry bags are full.

We shower just as often as we would at home if we are hooked up. Wet bath? I would never do that. We keep much stuff on the counter that doesn't fit under the sink. When you live in your Airstream half the year you are carrying a lot of stuff.

How often do you use your shower

I voted "never" for a few reasons. First, I most often camp in places that have very nice facilities. Some of the public showers there would rival my home shower for comfort and cleanliness (but yes, I do wear flip-flops while using them). Second, I use my shower space as a bonus storage room. I mounted a hanging rack and added a "table" inside. Very handy. Third, I used to tent camp, back in my younger days. So, if and when I do boondock, I'm just fine with slightly scratchy legs for a couple of days. I can easily do a "cat bath", and I'm ready for adventure.
Caveat: my husband usually does not camp with me. If he did, the shower would once again become a shower.

We shower every day; I Have installed a little SOV between the shower head and pipe to control water flow. (Easier to use than little supplied SOVS in the head.)
Navy style shower works weĺl.
Then some under arm 'Raid" to keep the ' bugs' in check.

To the op. I guess you got your answer. Omit the shower from your remodel and you'll have a hard time selling the trailer.

I never use my shower. I keep the litter box in it, so it is easier just to use the facilities in the campgrounds when I feel the need to take a full shower. I usually take sponge baths and then take showers when I feel they are necessary.

I take minimum of 2 a day, I can't imagine not taking one. Even if I go camping I will go bath in the river, freeze but twice a day.

How often do you use your shower | Poll

It seems to me that using the things in a trailer is the reason they are put in the trailer to begin with.

I probably take about .9 showers a day whether at home or staying in my Airstream.

I might be out of touch, but I find myself surprised at the numbers of folks who seldom or never use their showers in their trailers.

I spent about 180 days in mine in 2015, I showered in it just the same Had I been at home... For me, this is a big part of the reason for going through the trouble of dragging the thing half way across the country.

Brevi tempore!
The fact that I am opinionated does not presuppose that I am wrong......

I prefer to shower in the trailer. Privacy is golden!

I have used a campground shower once, and it was OK, just not as good as my own. BTW, I voted 100% in spite of this one time use, because there wasn't a 99% option.

Never. We are planning to install "spring secured" shelves for storage. Right now it's home to vacuum and broom!

We went through an involved process to have a shower built in our classic that would accommodate my 6'4" linebacker husband. You better believe we use it every time we camp. The Interstate is another answer. I use it every day we camp; my husband uses the CG facilities.

No known percentage. I use my shower when the campground showers do not meet my standards or boondocking.


Do you know what a learning experience is? A learning experience is one of those things that says "You know that thing that you just did? Don't do that."
