Outside shower extension hose

I am having trouble finding an extension hose for my outside shower. I want to put a showerhead bracket about 6 feet high to be able to take a full standing shower outside without having to handhold the head. I can find replacement hoses, but not an extension hose. Amazon and Camping World do not have them. Anybody know where to get one for sure

Use a 1/2" close nipple to joint two hoses together.

Ours did not even come with a hose. We add one when we want to use it. (We do not use it to shower).

This is my solution to the stupid design of the outside shower and it's vinyl hose thats almost impossible to store correctly, aside from the fact that it's not long enough for proper use.
Bought a Pheonix PF213247 two handle head with a quick disconnect fitting. Installed it in less than 15 minutes. Also got their quick disconnect fitting, and one of those collapasible hoses.
Now, can attach the hose (25 foot) and wife can bring it around th the right side of our rig and use the hose?head while under the awning.
Original hose would have her standing half under a slideout, next to the water hose, sewer hose, electric cable and power pole. Stupid design.
We use ours primarily to wash the pups, and we can now sit under the awning.

I simply cut the existing hose and added some clear vinyl tubing of the same ID. Clamped it all back up and stuffed it back inside where the original one goes.

I really like your idea! Did the quick disconnect come with the faucet assembly or did you have to buy it separately?

Fitting is seperate, and also a Phenoix part. Pricy, but it fits there stuff. Cheaper quick disconnect from Lowes, Home Depot may fit, but not sure.

For info, the enclosed pic is of the original valve fitting I removed. If you've ever wondered why the pressure to these hosed is so little, look at the restriction hole that is moulded into the end.
This is what the water is forced thru. Bathroom faucet had the same restriction, but had a plug with the hole in it. Was able to pry it out, and water flow improved by 100%.

To put it into perspective, the reason I did this is because of the stupid design and placement of the outside shower. Pic of our Lexi, you can see the outside shower compartment...next to the black area that the gas fliier is located.
With the slide out, the shower is partially under the slideout.
Also, your having to stand in the dirt/grass area, usually next to the electric pedestal at most campgrounds, and right over the water, sewer, and electric line.
The quick disconnect allows us to use a 25 foot hose and bring it around to the right side of the Lexi, under the awning.

Thanks, but if I wanted to shower in a small square, constantly rubbing up against it, I would use the inside shower.
