I replaced the stock shower head in my Airstream with an Oxygenics unit. They make several models, but I chose the Body Spa. It works well. I don't know if it would fit your shower hose or not.

Oxygenics works well but are large/heavy if you have flimsy showerhead holder.. Any std water-saving unit should fit the 1/2" threads.. We added an inline shutoff valve to let water dribble (and stay warm while running a little) for navy-style showers) Example: https://www.amazon.com/Energy-Saving...f_B00EA06Z3M/?

We also like the Oxygenics shower head, and don't find it unreasonably heavy or awkward. It mixes air with the water flow, and gives at least the illusion of robust water flow, while low water flow is a a common complaint with many shower heads.

Another vote for Oxygenics showerhead. It is a bit heavier than the stock one but we have not had any issues as a result. You could just take it out of the holder, let it dangle, and wrap a small towel around it so it does not damage the shower wall while underway.

I don't think the Oxygenics Body Spa shower head weighs much more than the Delta shower head that came from the Airstream factory. The Oxygenics unit came with a shutoff valve, and it was easy to adapt to the factory mount on the shower wall.

Thank you all. I had the bathroom switched from another Airstream (not sure of the year) either way the oxygenics should be a real improvement.

I do like the Oxygenics. The only thing you loose using the Oxygenics is a few degrees of angle. ...you can't point it up/out as much as the
Delta. Not an issue if your are 5'9 & shorter. If you are taller and or shower has a lower ceiling, it could present an inconvenience.

I'm 6'3", and I agree with your assessment! The shower in my 23FB is essentially a sitting shower for me, so this hasn't been an issue. I had to sit in the shower with the factory Delta shower head also.
