I would think that your 71 still used the beige handled SS Alsons shower head. Van Dykes Restoration which is listed right here in the restoration resources has an exact replica if it is in stock. I believe it is like 95 bucks. Ouch. Otherwise if non original doesn't bother you and cheapo plated chrome plastic, then any old big box lumber store has a plethora of models to choose from

Try your local hardware store. Not knowing your area, if you have a lowes, or home depot. A shower head is a shower head. Nothing special about an rv one. You may want the one with a flex handle and shut off. Dave

I've been very happy with showers after replacing the OEM head in our SOB trailer with this Oxygenics sprayer. Not sure I buy all the marketing talk about adding oxygen to the water, but it does produce a more intense spray over the original one.

This is just the first spot I looked for it, available from lots of suppliers including some big box stores.

Shower Head

I have some pics of two shower heads from my 71 and 72 Sovereigns that I removed from them not sure if original or not but cannot figure out how to load. Send me a private message or email me on the Forums and I will send pics.

Asking for opinions about shower heads is similar to asking which tow vehicle is better, twin or queen beds, 25' or 27', etc. Everyone has an opinion... and now you're going to hear mine.

We have no problem taking a Navy Shower in an effort to use the least amount of fresh water and generate the least amount of gray water. With that in mind I did some testing on a variety of shower heads.

Oxygenics certainly created a stream/spray of water that closely replicated the feel of a shower in our home. However, it was also a water hog! There are several shower heads that use less water than Oxygenics. Some use a little less and some use quite a bit less. The brand we finally settled on has an easy to use on/off lever that allows the user very good control of water use.

We installed this in our trailer as well as our van. Our 50+ gallon fresh tank in the trailer allows us to go about 7-8 days without refilling with water. This comes in handy at campgrounds that don't have water at each site. Similarly the 30+ gallon fresh tank on the van allows us to go 4-5 days or longer when traveling in the van.

The head is available at Camping World. I think I've seen it on Amazon too.

In our wet bath, the shower head is also the lavatory faucet head. Pretty much stuck with the OEM one...it works good enough for DW’s “hotel showers”. Good thing we have a tankless water heater...

I don't know if the OP has a wet bath or a separate (dry) bath but we're using the ITC shower head shown above in both applications. Here are a few pictures of the unit installed in the wet bath of our Interstate.

- The first picture shows the lever locked in the down position for "sink" mode.

- The second picture shows the lever in the up position (no water flow).

- The third picture shows the lever can be depressed partially or fully to control water flow for wetting and rinsing in the shower.

The head pulls out of the faucet to allow for showering. The head uses the same thread that was on the faucet hose. No modifications were needed. Unfortunately, I have not located this specific ITC shower head in chrome finish.

Oxygenics is doing better in its class. I have been using this shower head all the time, saving water and increasing water pressure, which is great. If other people are also annoying to buy which type of shower head, try Oxygenics, it won't let you down.
