shower1In this edition of How We Roll in our RV, reader Jacob Matthews from Leesburg, GA asks us how we manage to shower in our 23-foot Class B Roadtrek eTrek motorhome (actually 22’9″).

So… we show him.

Sort of.

But people are often surprised that our RV has not one, but two showers.showr2

There’s a lot more room than you may think…until you see how well space is used.

    as fulltimers in a Chevy with 25 gallons water capacity, our shower drill is to find a place where we can fill up and dump, where we both take long hot showers, fill up and dump again, and then we’re ready to hit the road for a few more days all clean and with full freh water tanks. we can usually take a shower with about five gallons, so we get one shower apiece out in the boonies before we head back in for more water.

    5 gallons? Wow. We shower Navy-style. Wet down quick. Turn water off. Lather up. Turn water on, quickly rinse. Dry. Maybe 1.5 gallons used. Unless we’re hooked up to water in a commercial campground or state park. Then, we linger, use maybe three gallons. And we shower every day.

    I see the pup is loving it! :-)

    Nice article – thanks.

    You know what amazes me? My floor outside the shower doesn’t get wet. Not at all.

    We have had a 2013 RS about a year now. We’ve added a three soap (conditioner, shampoo and body wash) dispenser. We’ve learned when you first turn on the water a bit is wasted down the sink trying to get temp right and pressure enough to pull the sink diverter to get water to the showerhead. So set the sink plug in nice and tight, put some soap on a poof and lay in in the sink. After getting wet, you shut off the shower and use all the soapy water in the sink to lather. We’re not too frugal with water, but its so efficient you can allow the rinse to be a little longer.
