Re: Interior Shower set ups?

I have one of these.. "Dirty Dog" http://www.amazon.com/ABO-Gear-Dirty-Po ... 78&sr=8-4.. the blue expandable bucket not the dog :-)

It will go flat, or at least only about 2" think and has a threaded drain plug on it that I can run a hose out the door for inside use. They make two sizes and I have found the 24" works best in the van. It doubles as an ice bucket or a trash can too!

Re: Interior Shower set ups?

Bought my van used, it has permanent shower behind drivers seat. I think it is 2ftx3ft with the long end from the side to center of van. I think SMB installed it that way to maximize headroom at ~ center of van since I have smaller height fixed top - 12 inches tall (same as a coversion van). I would think you could retro fit as it's a shower pan with hard sides around it, one with door. My gray water tank is behind the rear axle. Pictures of it in my gallery per prior board request. Haven't added any for awhile so it's probably a few pages deep now.

LenS - Do you have some pics of your shower set up with the curtain? Did you just buy your own shower curtain to hook from the roof? Thanks , L.

Re: Interior Shower set ups?

Bottom of page 5 of my pics shows the shower setup.

I made our curtain. 4 or 6 mil plastic from Home Depot. Drop cloth zipper from Home Depot (made to isolate dusty rooms during construction cut it to length needed to fit shower curtain). The curtain is attached to the penthouse top side rails with 5 wood workers spring clamps. The Sun Shower hangs from the two penthouse front lock down hooks. The shower pan is one of those low under the bed storage boxes you can get at Target. Got one that nests with our ice chest so storing it not an issue. I cut the 4 mil plastic sheet to make a tube (the zipper holds the tube in shape. The top of the tube is about 3' x 4' (to attache to penthouse rails) and the bottom is 2' x 30"( to nest in the shower pan). Works fine. Again I think total cost was less then $40.

I think I overstated the water used. We found we had water left over in the Sun Shower so I think we use about 2 gallons for the two of us. I have very short hair and wife's is on the shorter side.

Re: Interior Shower set ups?

Yes, shows how a 6 foot 200 lb person fits in the shower. The top being about 3' x 4' gives plenty of room for arms to swing around and keep the water in. I do have to bend over to wash my head, but again there is plenty enough room at the top. Wife does want to add friction strips to shower pan. Soapy water in the plastic pan can be slippery. Since we are only putting 2 gallons of water in the 5 gallon Sun Shower I do want to figure a way to raise it higher for higher shower head location.

Re: Interior Shower set ups?

I think louie was referring to the bear attack images in your gallery.

See this thread: Bears
