not sure if MOST folks sit, but it is a position that works.
sitting allows one to take 'water thrifty showers'
sit, wet down, lather up, stand briefly to reach those hidden spots, rinse.
the enclosed stall warms UP from body heat, so it's not necessary to keep the water running for warmth.
a squeegee and microfiber handtowel make wipigng now the stall easy and quick after bathing.
i suspect a LOT of folks with the tiny showers or wet bath use the campground facilities when they are acceptable.
yeah making the bed every night is a pain but the 75ths approach is one of the better setups.
it's important to think about HOW u plan to use the unit and for how LONG on most trips.
2-3 days of nightly set ups is tolerable, but weeks on end clearly not.
which gets back to SELECTING a trailer.
NEW is great, i understand buying new.
for for a total noob, still working full time? expecting to camp what 6-10 times a year?
the depreciation on a new unit is HUGE.
figure 1-2,000 $ per trip that first year...
there are a LOT of single axle units in the pool of modern used streams...
anything from the last decade is pretty much the same in the 16/19 size.
find one that has been well cared for, is clean and so on.
that some1 else took the hit 4 major deprecation.
this would get ya camping and for a lot less coin this season...
then you will be wiser when it comes to ordering/buying a NEW unit.
and the starter trailer can be easily sold again.
food 4 though
