Are you spying on me? That was what I was researching yesterday. For me, its a question of $10/month for a place to shower, or having to pay $10 per dump station visit, plus the hassle of refilling the fresh water too.

Thanks for the suggestions.

Oxygenics Showerhead:
This looks like it may be a big improvement over what's there. I'll have to go look at one.

Shower Curtain Extender:
Doesn't really work in this configuration because of the physical walls.

Planet Fitness:
One location is $10 a month + additional $29 startup fee + additional $29 annual fee = $15 a month, x 2 (two of us) = $30 a month. I'd feel better about doing it if they weren't trying to hide a third of the cost and just advertised it as "$15 a month". They're also a 25 minute freeway drive from me, so not really all that close to be convenient.

I'm a big fan of the Oxygenics shower head. Also removed the flow restrictor in the mixing valve.

My rig has the same shower head yours does and there's plenty of water pressure. Maybe it needs a good disassembly and cleaning?

As mentioned many times before, oxygenics shower head and perhaps a higher volume pump. Ours works great on tank or city water. With the 10 gallon water heater I can literally take a 25 minute shower without running out of hot water. I like it better than home.

While I enjoyed my Oxygenics Spa shower head, DW complained that the spray was too narrow, but good pressure. I saw a demo of the EcoCamel Jetstorm, ordered one and installed it. DW loves it! https://www.ecocamel-showerheads.com/

I much prefer showering outdoors especially when it is hot inside. I mounted a showerhead bracket a foot over my head just above the wet bay and got a shower hose extension. Plenty room to move around and you are not sweating afterwards.

We bought a shower head assembly and hand held head with flex hose thing from Costco.They are meant for household use but adapted to our rig by just screwing on to the pipe. No restriction there, the only pressure issue would be the pump.
I am not sure how this compares to the other one mentioned above.
This one has a switch on it to turn it off. When we are boon docking we turn the water on and get it set to the desired temp. then wet yourself down and turn it off to conserve water. Then soap and wash your self down and add a little more water if needed and when done turn it back on and rinse away. It is not perfect but after the rinse you feel pretty good and it does save alot of water.

Our pressure improved greatly after removing the flow restrictor. We thought the shower head was clogged somehow. It's a Moen and appears to be no different than a household unit. It does have the shut off valve still.

We never use the CG facilities. That was part of the deal getting a larger rig. Our own bathroom and shower. If we are at a CG with no sewer at the site I connect the blue thunder. At 25 gallons as conservative as we get it only gets us two days of showers and I drag it to the dump station. Dumping a tank if gray is not near as bad as black or a mix so I'm happy to do it and use our own shower.

If the water pressure at the CG is low we fill and run off the tank and pump.

Sure looks like you could relocate the shower head holder to a higher location as you have extra hose length based on your photo.

That would solve one complaint.

I decided many years ago that a shower curtain is a big PITA and swore never to buy anything that had one. It seems like as soon as you get wet it attracts the curtain and you spend more time getting away from it than spent washing. Since then I have owned 3 houses and 3 RVs, none had a shower curtain. If any had had a curtain it would have busted the deal. Hate to shower in hotel/motel or CG showers cause most have curtains.
