But, I was eyeballing the solar pond pump from harbor freight for a cheap and effective water system.

I used one the solar pond pumps but the one I had couldn't produce enough power for a shower. But they have others.
If you search my posts you can find my Scepter/LCI water can shower. Basically you attach a ½" spigot, garden hose, a PVC downspout inside the cap to pick up water from the bottom of the can, and a tire valve to insert air. Bingo: shower. Useful for moving water from the can into the SMB tank too, hosing off dogs, washing crap off the van, and oh...storing water.
Another way to go is a cheap garden pump sprayer. I spray painted a HF one black, left it in sun, and after a few pumps nice little shower. For about $10.
But my fav is still a shower bag. Although having the LCI can and the bag aren't mutually exclusive. No power to worry about either.
