Thanks for those links Bruce B..
They look great, but I am concerned about the space I have behind the fixture..

I am sure I saw a unt that the shower head and pipe was seperate and plugged in when you needed it?

That's what's on the Interstates. You can order from your friendly Airstream Dealer (check the downloadable Airstream Interstate Parts Book for part numbers).

We've used a friend's Cabela's shower shelter a number of times -- usually when at public parks without a shower house. And about as many times rangers or park supervisors have directed that we not use it any more. I suspect they are worried about site erosion if they allowed this, but the stronger basis is that gray water is classified as treatable sewage in a large number of jurisdictions. Of course a state park, national park, Corps of Engineers, etc, can establish this as their own policy.

Check Dumping Laws

We've used the outside shower on our Safari without a shelter to wash hair, grill grates or dogs without ever being called on that.

Same with us, many times, never an issue. Especially handy for shampoos and dirty dogs.

We met a couple once with a PleasureWay who said (him) that he regularly showered outside in the national parks. No screen, no shelter, no nuthin,

I've done this lots of times after dark, wearing loose swim trunks to keep the bright moon from, uhh, giving me away.

Outdoor shower

Well before you get to far here’s a picture of my outdoor shower unit. I bought the unit at Amazon for $45.00. I plan to spray paint it gray. The hot water tank is right next to it so plumbing was a breeze. I used shut off valves so when the unit is not in use it won’t have a water supply going to it. It’s great for boondocking. Standing outside naked in the middle of nowhere is AWESOME !!!

Outside shower

We use our outside shower whenever boon docking....saves gray water tank. Find the sites with lots of trees, wait until after dark, and a quick clean up is assured. We bought a fold up wooden base to stand on and use a small step stool for the shower "shelf". Life is clean!

If you've got an extrnal shower on your Airstream, you might consider buying an outdoor shower stall…
