When I started this thread I didn't think it would be so popular. I sure have learned a lot after getting it started. We will be using ALL of our AS facilities (after we take delivery - hopefully tomorrow!). Brian, thanks for the info on the shower head, Becky saw that and immediately said "We are going to get one of those!". Everyone, thanks for all of the info and the laughs.

Yellow paper goes into the waste can. Brown paper goes into the tank. Just a way to minimize the amount of paper in the tank.

I keep a spray bottle of any one of the shower cleaners hanging on the end of the towel bar in the shower. The trigger makes a hook to keep it there; it has never fallen off in many trips. A bottle will last practically forever. My shower looks like new and has never been wiped down. A few spritzes with the bottle does the trick.

Scott, this we just don't understand some owners. We use our Airstream's full facilities no matter if the campground has nice amenities or not. Even used the shower in our 1997 B-190 Van when we had. We recently camped our in Merc Sprinter seated van with some of the seats removed. We reluctantly used campground showers, but we carried a porta potty and used it.
We run into this mentality in the big Class A diesel world, where owners will proclaim they never use the bathroom and surely don't cook in the coach.
When we travel, we use the entire Airstream, kitchen, shower, potty and all with or without hookups.
Go for it, you paid for it, use it and be happy.

I don't know about Maine. Most showers in RV parks and state parks that we've been to don't charge a fee. We've run into a few locations where you have to pay, most of these have been at National Parks such as Yellowstone. But you get long hot showers for a set fee. The one in Glacier NP is a coin feed. These type aren't so good. So it really depends on where you're going as to whether there will be a shower fee.

The highest price we've seen for a shower was at the truck stop at Coldfoot, Alaska. In 2002 it was $10. I don't know what it is now. This is north of the Arctic Circle and at the southern side of the Brooks Range. Everything is expensive there and in 2002 we were camping in a tent nearby. The shower was very small and I didn't trust it's cleanliness and didn't want to touch the walls. But it would go as long as I wanted, which wasn't very long because it was not an enjoyable place. I didn't want to pay that much, but my wife didn't allow me that choice.

Thanks,

I use mine.....everytime I take it out.

Sorta boondocking in a primitive SP (no hookups, no elec), we got in a conversation with neighbors... they were in tents... and they said something like "this is such a wonderful place but after a few days it is just too long without a shower." I just smiled to myself thinking of the nice hot shower I enjoyed in my Globetrotter that morning.
