Question Of The Week

Dry Bath Truck Camper Confessions

We asked our loyal, and evidently squeaky clean, readers a simple question, “Do you use the shower in your camper?”  While nobody admitted to playing with a rubber duck (we know you’re out there), they have revealed exactly what they do with their truck camper showers.

Here are the dry bath responses:

“I have a dry bath.  Yes, we use it all the time when camping.  The only problem is pressure, and that’s a campground issue.  If we are boondocking, we ration water carefully, but that shower sure feels great!” – L and G Knechtel, 2008 Chevy 3500, 2004 Lance 1161

“I have a dry bath.  We do use our shower regularly when there is isn’t a campground shower.  We find it good once you get over the plastic curtain sticking to you while you shower.  It’s all in the mind.

A suggestion I would have for manufacturers to install the bent shower support (similar to many hotels) that increase the space in the shower stall.  There may be a need to increase the step to make sure the curtain stays in, but I’m sure that can be minimized with a bit of thought.” – Areef, 2005 Ford 350, 2008 Arctic Fox 990

“I have a dry bath.  We definitely use the shower and really enjoy it.  True it’s not like the shower at home but, as the home away from home shower, it’s great.

We recently outfitted it with a new cloth-like shower curtain and new shower head.  Works great!” – Dave Riddle, 1997 Dodge 2500, 2006 Host Tahoe

“I have a dry bath.  We know who has been in our shower.” – Jim Todd, 2009 Dodge 3500, Lance 1191

“I have a dry bath.  Yes we use the truck camper shower.  We had a 1999 with a wet bath.  Personally I liked it okay, but the wife didn’t like taking a shower with the commode.  That is the only reason we upgraded was for the dry bath.

We use our truck camper for dry camping or going on short trips out of town for personal and business reasons.  The shower is one of the reasons I have the truck camper.  Also, the grandkids live four hours away.

On special occasions, when both sides of the family goes, there is not enough sleeping room or hot water in their house.  So, we just set it up in their driveway with everything we need.  If not for the shower, a tall tent would do for me.

We do use the shower for hanging clothes on the way.  Then we can hang them outside somewhere when we get to our camping spot.  I would sell my fifth wheel before my truck camper at this stage in life.” – Jeff Lewis, 2001 Ford F350, 2011 Lance 1181

“I have a dry bath.  We tend to travel in the Spring and Fall when campground showers are pretty cold.  We use our shower almost every day and enjoy knowing it is clean and warm.  It is also our drying place for wet gear and a great place to store muddy boots.  Keep on trekk’n.” – Dave Miller, 2015 F350, 2002 Bigfoot 10.6E

“I have a dry bath.  I have never used it once.  It’s too small and we need the space for storage.” – Jim Dickson, 2006 Dodge 3500, 2004 Alpenlite Santa Fe

“I have a dry bath.  I do use our shower in the camper.  I like a shower to end my day of outdoor activities.  It’s long enough with the hot water but the pressure is low due to water saving.  I turn the water on and off during the shower with the off switch on the shower head.  I would not say that I like the shower, but I am glad to have it at times.

My current camper is a Host Tahoe 10.5 and has a dry bath, no tub, but has a shower and toilet, and a larger bathroom.  I am not a fan of this set up after owning it for a few years, as it takes space out of the camper.  My last camper was an Arctic Fox 990 with a excellent set up for us.  It had a wet bath and was a better size.” – Brent and Patti Portschy, 2005 Dodge Ram 3500, 2006 Host Tahoe 10.5

“I have a dry bath.  On really hot days, I might even take two short showers.  We pull a man cave with a car in it, and extra water.  There are lots of showers in our past and in our future.” – Bob Nelson, 2001 Chevy 3500, 2013 Arctic Fox 1140

“I have a dry bath.  We do use our shower, both for storage (dog food bins, laundry, coats) and showering.  Everything just gets hauled out and put back.

We did install a hanging rod across the length of the shower to accommodate coats and wet towels.  It’s just too much space to not use it for something!” – Audrey Ruccio, 2008 Ford F450, 2008 Host Everest

“I have a dry bath.  I love my shower!  It is large enough for adults, and the pan area makes an effective tub for small children to soak off the day’s dirt, play, and get relaxed for bed.

I especially appreciate not having to use public facilities.  My husband, on the other hand, is willing to go public, thus leaving more capacity for baby and I.

We have a closet rod inside the shower stall where we hang towels to dry and other clothing, which can just rest on the bed while the shower is being used.  We also have an outside shower for cleaner feet and rinsing off from the pool, river, or seas.  I love my own bathroom and hot running water!” – Candace Krewer, 1996 Dodge, 2005 Lance 1181

“I have a dry bath.  We have showered in our campers for years.  We now use it more often, since it is large enough to towel off without hitting walls with your elbows.” – Philip Tron, 2009 Chevy 3500, 2012 Lance 1050

“I have a dry bath.  Sure I use it, except for showering.  It’s where my laundry hamper lives, and our portable electric heater storage and other small items are also stored here.” – Sally Stomberg, 2006 Ford F550, 2006 Lance 1191

“I have a dry bath.  Yes, we use the shower in the camper.  Most of our trips are boondocking and, since we do not have other shower facilities, the camper shower is a welcome reprieve.  I have also used the outdoor shower.” – Terry Berg, GMC 3500, 2013 Arctic Fox 992

“I have a dry bath.  Yes we certainly do use our shower.  One of the reasons we have an RV is that we can’t take staying in filthy motel rooms. We do not use campground facilities for the same reason.” – Thomas Andersen, 2006 Dodge, 2003 Lance 1121

“I have a dry bath.  Yes, we use it on almost every trip.  The Host Yellowstone camper has sixty-six gallons of fresh water and a thirty gallon grey tank so we have plenty of capacity.  We stay out most of the time for a week or two and spend lots of time doing outdoor activities.  A shower at the end of the day is a necessity.” – Mike Borrego, 2005 Ram 3500, 2008 Host Yellowstone

“I have a dry bath.  Yes, we use it to take showers.” – Robert Adams, 2011, Chevy 3500, 2013 Lance 1191

“I have a dry bath.  We use the shower every day.  It is a little cramped and we have to be aware of water and tank capacity, but it is worth it.

Having a shower in the camper is one of the things that makes camping more enjoyable.  We do not like campground showers.

One of the major reasons for our particular camper is the dry bath.  Other manufacturers could learn from Bigfoot.” – Randall Rice, 2012 GMC Sierra 3500 HD, 2002 Bigfoot 2500 10.6C

“I have a dry bath.  Yes, I use the shower.  I am a large person and the size and accessibility of the shower in the 2011 Chalet DS116 camper, I believe, is one of its major selling points.” – Douglas Diehl, 2010 Ford F450, 2011 Chalet DS116

“I have a dry bath.  I use the shower in the camper since many times we are camped for riding quads.  I take a quick shower at night before crawling in bed to clean up the dirt, dust, etc.  It keeps the sheets clean.  If we are camped in a campground, I still prefer the shower in the camper.” – Elliot, 2011 Ram 3500, 2011 Arctic Fox 1150

“I have a dry bath.  Yes, I use it almost all the time.” – Richard C. Raymond, 2005 Silverado 3500, 2007 Palomino Winter Creek 11.5RS

“I have a dry bath.  Yes, I use the shower in my truck camper.  I enjoy the convenience of having everything right there and not having to carry everything to a campground shower house.

In all the many nights I have spent in my truck camper, I think I may have used the campground showers three times.  I usually shower just before going to bed and it’s really nice to get out of the shower and go right to bed.” – Eldon Rhodes, 2008 Chevy 3500, 2011 Lance 1050

“I have a dry bath.  We, as a family always use the truck camper shower and are really enjoying the dry bath of the Chalet.

Wild camping is more or less the only way we use the camper, so we make use of all the facilities it has to offer.  I take a water barrel with us and fill it in streams or rivers and use a little twelve volt sump pump to lift the water into the camper’s tank.” – Allan Huntly, 2008 Dodge Ram 3500, 2014 Chalet TS116

“I have a dry bath.  The dry bath was one of the big factors in purchasing our Lance.  The thought of turning the whole bathroom into a shower was not appealing, nor was the prospect of dealing with wet toilet paper.

We often boondock and the on-board shower makes it much more appealing, knowing that it is possible to shower with a minimum of fuss.

The rest of the story is my dislike for campground showers which I find to be generally grungy and often downright dirty; a most unappealing place to try to get cleaned up.

The real appeal of a truck camper is that it can be parked and used in a great variety of locations and, therefore, should be as self-contained as possible.” – Peter Staples, 2013 Chevrolet 3500HD, 2013 Lance 1172

“I have a dry bath.  Since our camper is brand new, I haven’t yet had the chance to use the shower, but I fully intend to do so.

I used the shower on a regular basis in our old trailer.  I hate, hate, hate, having to lug all my shower gear and clothes to a campground shower room.  I’m a bit squeamish about using public facilities like that.

We store our outerwear on a rack in the shower along with our brooms, extra water, soda, beer, and wine on the floor.  It’s not a big deal at all to me to simply grab the hanging stuff, the brooms and plunk it all on the bed.  I move the other stuff onto the dinette temporarily while we use the shower.” – Joanne Hall, 2014 Chevy Silverado 3500, 2014 Lance 1172

“I have a dry bath.  We use our shower frequently, depending on tank levels, and distance to the next dump station.  I shower in the morning and my girlfriend showers in the evening before bed.  Truck camping has definitely redefined the quick shower!” – Bob Manley, 2012 Ford F350, 2004 Lance 1121

“I have a dry bath.  We like the independence of having our own shower and it’s easier than going to the public shower.” – Dwight Phillips, 2002 Ford F350, Alpenlite

“I have a dry bath.  Yes my wife, two kids, and I showered every night for five nights at Dumont Dunes, San Bernardino County, California.  We turn the water on, get wet, shut it off, lather up, and then rinse.  It just takes some common sense.” – Ed, 2008 Ford F350, 2008 Arctic Fox 960

“I have a dry bath.  It’s used as a closet stall because it’s too small.” – Len Lewis, 2003 Ford F350, 2003 Lance 1130

“I have a dry bath.  Yes we use our shower.  We want to shower in our own place, not a public bath house.  It is tight, but very doable.” – Pat, 2002, Chevy Silverado 2500HD, 2001 Lance 1030

“I have a dry bath.  We always use it when dry camping.  If convenient bath/shower facilities are available at RV Camp, then we use them.  I enjoy a ten minute shower now and then.

My chief complaint of the shower is the ridiculously low water pressure at the head.  Presumably figured into the design to conserve water and prevent the holding tank from filling after a couple of uses.  The pressure throughout rest of camper is adequate and the temperature is always hot.  Lance, are you reading this?

We keep the shower free of clutter and don’t use it for storage, except for a few light weight items on floor during transit.” – Frank, 2014 Ford F350, Lance 1191

“I have a dry bath.  We are now on our thirty-eighth day of traveling in our truck camper to Alaska.  Of these thirty-eight nights, only twelve nights were spent with hook-ups.  The other twenty-six nights were spent boondocking at Walmart, provincial parks with no hook-ups, pull-outs on the side of the road, overflow parking at state parks, etc.  We use ours and like you guys.  We’ve showered in many Walmart parking lots!

We keep a mesh bag in the shower for dirty clothes, a gallon bottle of water for extra water for coffee, cooking, brushing teeth, etc.  We do this to conserve our water tank supply.  We just take these items out for a quick shower.  You do learn to take very quick showers!  Conserving water becomes an art!

So our answer to your question would be, we would not give up our shower for storage.  We’ve learned to pack carefully and light.  We find that items that are not used on a daily basis can be strategically placed in the back seat of our truck.  Our 1191 has plenty of storage for two people traveling for three months as we are doing!  Loving our Lance!” – Ron and Marie Hebert, 2006 Dodge 3500, 2007 Lance 1191

“I have a dry bath.  Yes we use it, enjoy having it, and can’t imagine not using it.  We have a dry shower in this camper only because it came with it. Our other camper had a wet bath and we would prefer it because it has more room.  When you’re done, just wipe it down, and it’s always clean.

The extra space would be much more usable having eighteen inches more on the kitchen counter.  You only use shower once a day or every other day for a few minutes, but the counter is used all the time.  I would like you to see how many want a dry or a wet bath and why.” – Frank, 2007 F350, 2007 Arctic Fox 1150

“I have a dry bath.  We use our truck camper shower every few days when we are boondocking.  With an unlimited water and propane supply (and dump station) we would use it more often.  Between showers we take sponge baths and use pre-moistened towelettes.  Installing an Extend-A-Shower curtain rod gives us welcome additional arm room.  While we are traveling, we store laundry bags and a two and a half gallon water jug in the shower.” – George Dunstan, 2010 Ford F450, 2009 Lance 1055

“I have a dry bath.  Yes, we prefer our level of cleanliness and the comfort of having our toiletries readily available.  We also use campground showers if they’re clean and handy.  We don’t need any more storage than we have inside.  We dry camp quite a lot, so our own shower is a must.” – Jim Cornwell, 2011 Chevy Silverado HD, 2012 Lance 1191

“I have a dry bath.  We shower in it and also store easily removable stuff.” – Michael Fenwick, 2008 Ford F450, 2002 Alpenlite Santa Fe 1150

“I have a dry bath.  Yes, we use the shower.  When we downsized from a thirty-three foot fifth wheel, I said I’d use the campground showers.  I haven’t.  I find it is nice to get up in the morning and not have to get dressed to go to washrooms in the campground.  When not showering, we keep our laundry mess bag hung up in the shower and do store some bags in there.  The bags are easily removed when showering.” – Sue and Bill Billyard, 2000 Dodge Ram 3500, 2000 Forest Real Lite 11.5

“I have a dry bath.  Yes, my wife and I both like to shower every day and generally camp at state parks or boondock.  Generally, there are no showers where we stay, and we don’t like using public showers even if they’re there.  We are willing to pay the price in water usage and bathroom space.  We find that water and dump facilities are easy located.” – Bruce Tinkler, no rig information given

“I have a dry bath.  I love my shower and use it all the time.  And yes, even in Walmart parking lots!  I also have a bucket of cleaning supplies that lives in the shower stall, and I just put it on the floor outside of the bathroom when I’m using the shower.

For the third year in a row, we are living in our truck camper for at least six months at a time from early spring to late autumn.  We are lucky that our Host has a spacious dry bath and a wonderful shower.” – Pat, 2001 Dodge 3500, 2007 Host Yellowstone DS

“I have a dry bath.  We frequently use the shower, regardless of whether we’re in a campground or boondocking.  In a campground, the inconvenience of packing up all of the shower-related stuff, carrying it across the campground, wondering what condition the bath house will be, and then packing up all the wet stuff and carrying it back, is too much work.

When boondocking, there is simply no other choice (other than being smelly).  When we had the Amerigo, it had a wet bath, and we used its bath just as much.  We haven’t used bath houses for years.  We have enough storage and don’t need to waste the shower space to store more stuff.” – Tom Watson, 1999 Ford E350, 1999 Four Winds 22RK

“I have a dry bath.  One of the reasons we purchased a Lance 1181 is because of the shower is large enough to take a shower.

We dry camp a lot and like showers.  Also at some campgrounds, the showers are inhabitable, even at some national name campgrounds.  With the onboard water capacity, showering is a regular activity.” – Gary Gade, 2011 Ford 350, 2014 Lance 1181

“I have a dry bath.  Yes, it’s plenty big for a 320 pound person and it is there when I need it.” – John, 2011 Ford F250, 2008 Okanagan 96DB

“I have a dry bath.  We absolutely we use our shower.  We use it because we exercise a lot and want to stay clean while we are traveling across the country.

I like the fact that we can pull in anywhere for the night, such as Walmart and can take a shower.  If we are staying in a campground for a few nights, we will use the bathhouses because we can take a really long, hot shower.  We never use the shower for storage as we are very good at only taking the necessities.” – Carole Hoskins, 2004 Dodge 3500, 2004 S&S 11DBS

“I have a dry bath.  Yes, we use it for convenience, as long as we know there is water and dump station in the near future.” – Eldor Eisen, 2005 Ford F350, 2007 Lance 1055

“I have a dry bath.  Why wouldn’t we use our truck camper shower?  That’s one reason we bought the model we did, for the dry bath.  We love it, we use it when we travel, and it’s not for storage.  Although we do put our laundry in there when we are on our way home from traveling.” – Tony and Kim Frohm, 2001 Ford F350, 2009 Lance 1191

“I have a dry bath.  Yes, we do use the shower in our 2003 Arctic Fox truck camper.  At times we go to places that have no other facility for bathing.  The shower is a little small, but we do make it work.

Northwood should make their own showers and bathrooms so they could make them with a little more room.  I would like to remake the shower to add a few inches to both the complete bath and shower.  But how do I remake a shower?” – Bob and Branda, 2003 Arctic Fox

“I have a dry bath.  We use the shower because it is cleaner than some campground showers.  Yes we like the shower.” – Jim Greenfield, 2006 Dodge 3500, Lance 1181

“I have a dry bath.  Underway it is a handy storage area for bulky items. When stationary, we do use the shower for its intended purpose.  We use the navy shower method.  That is wet down, stop water flow, soap up, and then rinse off.” – Neil Womack, 2007 GMC 2500, 2013 CampLite 11

“I have a dry bath.  We always use the camper shower.  We like the privacy of our own space and why have it if you don’t use it?” – Gary Raymond, 2012 Ram 3500, 2006 Lance 1191

“I have a dry bath.  Yes, we use our dry bath when another source is not available.  We store big lawn chairs in it when we are traveling.  We had a camper with a wet bath and didn’t like it.” – Teri, 2009 Chevy 3500, 2009 Eagle Cap 995

“I have a dry bath.  Yes I use it for the convenience and ability to use it anywhere.  It can also be used to hang wet clothes on rainy days.” – Joe Bergeron, 2013 Ford F450, 2007 Lance 1055

“I have a dry bath.  Yes, yes, yes, we use our shower.  Both my wife and I shower every morning.  We have been camping since 1971 and have showered in every type of RV.  Nothing starts the day better than a good shower or ends a good day of fishing.  Taking a Navy shower every morning we have found that we can last up to seven to ten days on the sixty-six gallons of water when we dry camp.  That’s one of the main reasons we decided on the camper that we have.” – Dave and Dora Donovan, 2007 Chevy 3500, 2012 Chalet TS116

“I have a dry bath.  We only use our shower as a very last resort, and that is even after the option of showering in the rain.  I wanted the dry bath because the thought of the whole bathroom being wet kinda grossed me out.  Instead, I now have the altogether familiar intimacy with the shower curtain; once it sticks to you, you’re a goner.  The 99.9% of the time that the shower is not used, it serves as a dirty laundry receptacle and extra bottled water storage.” – Michiko Walton, 2000 Ford F350, 2004 Lance 1050

“I have a dry bath.  I have an outside shower that I only use if I’m boondocking.  My camper is used most to attend shooting and motorcycle racing events.  Campers are parked cheek to jowl and my outside shower ends up in someone’s outdoor living area! I built a shower inspired by the International Space Station that hangs inside and drains outside.  It works great and there’s lots of privacy.” – Roy Bertalotto, 2006 Dodge 2500, 1998 Palomino Bronco 1200

“I have a dry bath.  Yes, it is built into the camper to be used.  It is too small but, better than stinking.” – Charles Cashion, 1993 Chevrolet C3500, 1995 Lance 990

“I have a dry bath.  Absolutely!  Our shower is spacious and so is our bathroom.  A morning shower goes hand in hand with a steaming cup of coffee!” – Patricia Rose, 2012 Ford F350, Chalet TS116

“I have a dry bath.  We use the shower all the time when traveling.  Why would you not use it?  We do use it for storage of odds and ends, kept easily together in a carry bin and simply take it out when showering.

We also have a five gallon bucket that serves as a hamper and for clothes washing, again, easily removed and put back.  We also use the outside shower when out in the boonies.” – Cheryl White, 2003 Ford F350, 2005 Arctic Fox 1150

“I have a dry bath.  We absolutely use our shower all the time.  We take nice quick navy showers.

We just learned a great holding tank trick.  While we run the water to get to temperature, we’ll run it into a clean new bucket and use it for other things like dishes.  Or, it can just be dumped outside.  It’s only clean water.

Our shower is nice and big.  When we have hook-ups, it’s even better.  We have always used it as a shower, not as storage.” – Rich and Denise Snyder, 2009 Dodge Ram 3500, 1997 Bigfoot 2500 series

“I have a dry bath.  I can’t say I like it, but it is serviceable.  This is our first camper purchase, and if we had it to do again, we would rather have the wet bath just for the sake of room.  But, the price was almost a steal, so we couldn’t turn it down.

A few minor mods to the shower stall have made it more convenient to use.  We took the camper to Yuma for the maiden voyage and used the shower nearly every day for the majority of the trip.” – Ted Webster, 2005 Dodge 3500, 2006 Arctic Fox 990

“I have a dry bath.  We were new to truck campers when we purchased our Lance.  And coming from a Montana with a luxuriously sized shower, I wasn’t sure how we could make do with the smaller sized shower in the truck camper.

The first trip out, I used the campground shower.  Then I said, the truck camper shower is there to be used.  I wouldn’t have felt right if we didn’t utilize all the amenities that came built into the camper.  So I decided to give it a chance.  To my surprise, our truck camper shower is comfortable and efficient.

Thanks in part to the extended shower rod, I never feel cramped in there.  When we are not needing the shower for its native purpose, we utilize the clothes rod to store our hanging clothes or wet rain gear.  And even our little Pomeranian enjoys using the area as his little out of the way spot for a nap!” – Marcia Cunney, 2004 Chevy 3500, 2013 Lance 1050S

“I have a dry bath.  Yes, we do use it.  Until we made a modification we did not use it.  The shower is just too small for a 6’2″ 200 pound frame.  But we discovered a flex shower curtain rod.  It has two hinges and will fold out and in.  We did have to shorten it to fit, which is easy with a hacksaw.

With it folded out, I have no problems taking a shower at all.  The extra room it makes is all towards the top.  It’s one of the best mods we have done.” – Pryor Donald, 2011 Ford F350, Arctic Fox 1150

“I have a dry bath.  Yes, that’s why I own a camper, so I can clean-up at night after a fun day playing.  Most of the places we play don’t have showers.  I love my dry bath.” – Bruce Moses, 2006 Chevy 3500, 2007 Lance 1191

“I have a dry bath.  That’s why we bought the smallest of the big campers. The Lance 1130 is a dry bath camper.  I had a 9′ Fleetwood Angler.

My wife, daughter, and I drove across the USA in 2002 from California to New York even into Maple, Canada.  It’s was twenty-three days, 6,700 miles in our nine foot Fleetwood Angler.  We did shower in it, but it was small.  That’s the one reason we would not but another camper that would not have a dry bath.” – Kelly Mark Hensley, 2005 Chevy, 2001 Lance 1030

“I have a dry bath.  I have been camping since April 1st, use the shower everyday, and love it.” – Bob Mihailov, 2005 Ford F350, 2010 Lance 10.6

“I have a dry bath.  Yes, the shower stall size was fine and I am happy with this design and size.” – Lloyd Ballinger, 2013 Chevy Silverado 3500HD, 2013 Lance 1172

“I have a dry bath.  Yes, we do use the shower, if we have to.  We love the fact that we have options.  This is our first year with the rig.  So far we have only been to campsites.  We expect to do more dry camping in the future and therefore will enjoy the shower a little more.” – Fabien Cloutier, 2006 Ford F350, 2008 Host Rainier

“I have a dry bath.  Of course we use our shower.  You would not want to sit next to me if I didn’t.  The shower in our Lance 1181 is quite large and is preferable to most campground showers.” – Judy and Jerry Funk, 2012 Chevy 3500, 2011 Lance 1181

“I have a dry bath.  Yes, it’s guaranteed to be cleaner then campground showers and more convenient because there’s no waiting.  We have enough water for eight showers, if you lather and then rinse.” – Rick Law, 2005 Ford F550, 2003 Bigfoot 30C/SL

“I have a dry bath.  Oh yes, I love to go camping and, as long as I have all the comforts of home, I’m content.  Having my own bathroom is a must; it tops my list.  I never thought that I would enjoy truck camping so much.  I will compromise storage space to keep my dry bath!” – Michelle Johnson, 2004 Ford F250, Lance 1050S

“I have a dry bath.  Yes, I love it.  It is what it is.  It is a lot easer for boys than girls.  Long hair shampooing takes a lot of water, filling the gray water tank fast.  It is all about the navy shower technique.

Boondocking, two people can shower every night for three nights, if done right.  We also use paper plates to cut down on dishwashing and water use, along with bottled drinking water.  I have got to have a hot shower before bed.” – Richard Sullivan, 2010 Chevrolet 1500, 2006 Lance

“I have a dry bath.  Absolutely!  We prefer the cleanliness, and privacy of using our own bathroom, including the shower.  We rarely will use the campground facilities.” – Jeannie Coushaine, 2001 Ford F350, 2014 Chalet DS116RB

“I have a dry bath.  Yes, especially when we dry camp, we use it to sleep and feel better from it.” – Ed and Terri Bruns, 2007 Dodge Ram 3500, 2008 Lance 1055

“I have a dry bath.  The answer is, it depends.  We are currently on a three month journey through Canada to Alaska.  When we stay at facilities that have decent restrooms/showers, we use them.  When boondocking, or when the campground shower is the pits, we use our own shower/basin to bathe.

Close quarters makes this a necessity for multiple week travel. Otherwise, our shower stall stores laundry hamper, wet rain gear, a bath wastebasket, shower caddies, and wet towels.” – Chip and Daisy, Ford 350, 2007 Eagle Cap 1160

“I have a dry bath.  The whole point of the bathroom and shower is that it is yours and it is clean, no matter where you are.” – Brian and Glenda Lemoine, 2014 Dodge Ram 3500, 2014 Lance 1172

“I have a dry bath.  We use ours all the time.  We like a shower at night and also use the outside shower to rinse off after a dip in the ocean!” – Don, 2011 Ford F350, 2007 Okanagan 117DBL

“We have a dry bath.  We use the shower every day with our new Oxygenics shower head.  It gives a wonderful aerated economic water flow.  The shower stall is big and tall.  For toileting my knees do not touch the walls.  It’s spacious and has lots of cupboards.  Having previously had a wet bath, where it wets everything, there’s nothing like a dry bath.” – Doug Packer, Eagle Cap 1160, Ram 3500
