I may be able to take a snap this weekend.

I put it in the rear bedroom. Just behind the water heater. So the water lines are short.

Our 71 has a built in spigot on the streetside rear where the water hose comes in. If you don't have that you can get an in line faucet to attach to your incoming line at any hardware store. If you don't mind cold water on a hot summer day you can hook this puppy to it and shower away.... 49.95 at Target



Also available is a handy towel tree. The towel warmer next to it - is of course optional equipment.

I think I may be in trouble if I came home with a towel warmer like that.

My plan was to use the fresh water drain.

My trailer has hot and cold water drain valves that drain to a single rubber hose. I would replace the rubber hose with a copper pipe hooked up to a faucet located underneath the trailer. Adjusting temperature would
be a pain. Another issue I had was the inconvenience of getting dressed in a small area. We camp in large crowds. So I put that job off.

I did a home built. I think the idea of an outside shower is a good idea. I put in hot and cold hose bibbs that can be wye'd together to make a shower.

It took more than 4 hrs, but I'm not on the clock.

I can't find it on online but years ago I bought a slotted wooden platform. Two finished squares are hinged together for a carry all and a clasp to keep closed. It's great for avoiding standing on shower house floors or for an outdoor shower. It opens to twice the size of the folded square. I'm guessing it's about 14" square and maybe 2 1/2"-3" high when it is folded closed.
