Yup, same here.

We usually dry camp and freely use the shower. We wipe it dry after use and it still looks brand new. Also, I fit in the shower better now after shedding some lbs. It's much easier to walk around the queen bed, too.

We use the shower not only to get clean but also as a storage space. This makes us clean up and wipe down the shower after each use. This helps us to keep the shower clean and dry all the time. You would be suprised at how much storage space a shower has for large, soft items.

I love it, my wife won't use it. At any rate, be sure to vent thoroughly. To keep it clean, I use a silicon squeegee to wipe down the walls and doors after each use.

I use ours; the wife doesn't. I also use it as a convenient place for the cat litter box for Beastie.

We installed an Oxygenics shower head and can't believe the difference it makes! We use much less water but the flow rate feels like the shower at home. Highly recommend it!

Absolutely

Yes. To me, the fact that I know who has previously used my shower, toilet, and bed is one of the major pluses in owning the trailer. I hate public accommodations and use them as little as possible.

The shower is great for accumulating enough soapy gray water to wash out the blue slinky when I dump.

Over the years I have run into people who never use the shower, never drink the water from the fresh water tank, never use propane and I won't even mention the one about the toilet. It is all there to be used. With proper maintenance it is safe.

We have the Oxygenics and think it's great. You should get one.

We like to boondock. Being able to take a shower makes it civilized.

We always use the shower vent fan while showering. We also wipe Lucy's shower down with an artificial chamois cloth after use.

This is Lucy's shower after about 1,500 showers. It still looks like new.

The seller of my Argosy said they don't use the shower or the furnace because his wife doesn't like the shower and distrusts gas heat. The used the stove all the time though, go figure! They've never filled the fresh water tank either, drinking bottled water and using freshwater hookups at campgrounds.

I haven't had a chance to use it yet... (taking possession today!) but I assume I'll use the shower and I hope the seals on the pump aren't fossilized from disuse. The furnace fired up and worked fine during my inspection, but I need to check and see if it's one of the recalled serial numbers before it gets "cold" again.

We have been full timeing for almost two years and use our shower every day. We see a lot of folks who use the shower for storage. What is that about? Have fun and enjoy the Airstream

We have run across a couple of Airstreamers who never use the shower, toilet, stove, oven, or fresh water tank. They basically use their Airstream as a hard-sided tent. Why bother?
