We have been lucky that most showers in state parks are well kept. I don't like public showers but there are a few tricks to keep you out of trouble. Always wear sandels. Don't sit on the bench and hang up everything you can. I won't be caught dead in any type of locker room like at a gym or other sports facility. When we go somewhere we usually go for a week. The graywater tank would be full in 2 days if we took showers. I don't have one of those caddy things and I am not sure I want one. Now weekend camping is a different story. The shower is one thing I have not had time to fix yet.

One of the reasons that I have an RV (AS) is so I can avoid the hoi poli, especially in rest rooms/showers. Do you ever look at some of these people and the way they live, no thanks on sharing a shower/toilet etc. Plus talk to a campground host about sometime about what goes on in the showers at a campground, you might be surprised, and not interested in visiting one unless it was well cleaned recently! Only time would be maybe in the off off season, when nobody is at that campground, then, maybe.

Shower Use

We use it a vast majority of the time. We installed a shower curtain (doubled over, Velcro'ed along each side to the stall) so we did not have mess with cleaning the retractable door and worry about leaks that we could possibly discover after it may be too late. Works well for us.

Still brand new to this, but I used mine this morning, here at home. I am trying everything out, a little at a time. Apparently you had a good idea with the velcroed curtains, tsunami. Mine came that way. It was a bit tricky with the "wet toilet" but the water heater works well, so overall it was a pleasant experience. I plan to use it a lot when I camp.

When I had the 22' with the wet bath, I replaced the OEM shower curtain with a larger, much thinner cloth curtain I bought at WalMart. I took off the hangers from the old curtain and bought a couple of additional hangers from the A/S dealer for a nominal fee and sewed them on.

The thin cloth curtain is a lot nicer to work with in the small space and it was large enough to pretty well keep everything dry. I would drape it over the stool to keep that dry.

I hated the stiff curtain that Airstream installed.

They must have changed it. My curtains are not stiff at all. They are similar to the cloth curtains I have seen in hotel baths. Here's a pic. Notice how easily they wrap up out of the way when not in use. I showered and in just a few minutes the curtains were all dry.
