Shower head/hand held advice

I'd like to replace the plastic (CHEAP) shower head/hand held unit in my 2006 Holiday Rambler Ambassador. Are there any that you guys recommend specifically? Don't want cheap plastic, I'd like to have something like what you'd put in your house. Anything I need to know about RV use or will a residential unit work?

Many recommend this unit for an RV:

I installed this one and like the performance. Did not use the retainer bracket that came with it, used the factory one that came on the RV. Did not use the hose that came with it (plastic), changed to this:

Head is plastic though, hose is stainless and very flexible.

Just replaced our cheap plastic one last week with a more expensive one from Walmart. Works great.

As triplewide mentioned, Oxygenics Body Spa is VERY popular among RVers and has been for some time.

Howver, Oxygenics has a newer and higher rated one for RV use that has become popular too and that's the Fury:

With RV shower heads, what the goal should be is very little water usage but at the same time feeling as if you are getting nice coverage and a comfortable and satisfying shower. Oxygenics is known and proven for doing both. Sure, you can use a residential shower head but water usage isn't quite as important as it is in an RV.

We also replaced the shower head that came in our MH with the Oxygenics.

Some like the ones with an on-off pushbutton on the big handle, so you can avoid draining a small hot water tank at an inconvenient time...

Is "Shower Spa" the brand name? Where did you get it?

Does this one include the hose? Or is it just a new hand held shower head? I couldn't tell from the ad.

The OEM shower head in our Beaver was a residential model (Moen) and when we replace it, it will be with another residential one.

Had this unit for the home many years. Started to throw it away but thought it could be used in the coach. Works great and now I can stand with hands free under a shower head. Also use the body spray to wet down quickly.

Put LED strip in shower to give better lighting. It's always been a little dark.

Yeah whatever I buy will definitely have the on/off button so I don't have to try to get the water temp correct again with soap in my eyes!!
