Residential Shower In Camper

I did not like the way the stock shower/sink faucet worked in the shower.  I re-plumbed the whole camper with residential faucets and pipes, installed a residential shower valve and the same shower head that I have at home.  I want my camper shower to feel like I’m still at home.

Residential Shower Plumbing

I cut a hole next to the toilet and fitted the valve.  Once I had it laid out, I plumbed the supplies to it.  In order to hold the valve in place, I loosely covered it with duct tape over the back of the valve.  I then filled the tape with expanding foam to lock the valve in place.

Residential Shower Wet Bath

Then I brought a short nipple out and attached the shower head flex line to it with a valve in between.  This way you can set your temperature and just shut the flow off to save water.  I also screwed an adjustable shower head holder to the wall that doubles as a hook.

It has worked out great.  It has great pressure and feels like I’m showering at home.

It took me eight hours to complete this modification and cost me $200.  In my opinion, the skill level of this modification is hard.
