Outside Shower

Does anyone know a supplier for an outside shower like this? I think it might be a nice addition to my conversion van. It looks like it folds up and down against the side of the van.

Did some googling but came up with nothing. If that's a DIY, it's brilliant.

I did some more digging and I found it. It is called the "pop up shower cubicle" option on the Australian made Trayon Campers. Don't know if I will be able to find a supplier, but at least I know where it came from so I might just tackle the project of making one.

Sounds like an American patent might be in order here. I'd bolt one of those to the rear of my van. Struts hold it up, folds up in to a 3-4" package?

Why did my GF laugh when I said 3-4" package?

That shower package might be small but it sure does look fancy.

If you use the side doors as shower curtains and some neodymium magnets to hang a plastic curtain then there's a nice and big shower stall with easy access to the interior of the van and IF you have heat also...

It's what I've been doing for many years.

Or if you guys want a smaller shower, get a hula hoop and put a shower curtain on it and suspended it from an extended rod from the roof...

I was in CA a few years back, in the middle of my shower and two people walked by and started to giggle. I guess they didn't realize until they were just feet away that I was taking a shower.
If you use plain curtain material and don't sing it looks very unassuming... except for the water running down.

VivaLaVida's shower uses back doors to hold some aluminum profils and a curtain to mask sides and back. Easy to setup (less than two minutes), plenty of room and hot water from the Webasto heater. Definitely efficient and pleasant whe you come back of a 12+ hours hike...
