Shaving legs in Storm 32V

I know it's sort of a strange question, but does anyone out there have any good ideas for shaving legs in the shower. I did it but just wondering if there was a better way than bending over.

Get a small waterproof folding bath bench to sit on in the shower? The shower head can be taken down and used while sitting it looks like...

Outside with a bucket of water.........

I always got a kick out of it when GF does it that way.

RV showers are just NOT conducive to bending over in

You could get a folding teak shower seat. Unfold it when it's time to sit and shave. I don't think a wall mount unit would be a good idea in an RV, but there are plenty of freestanding seats. Just search for "shower seat" on Amazon.

Granted it all depends on how much room you have in the shower. I haven't seen the shower in your rig, but I know there are some out there with really tiny shower stalls. Hope that's not your situation.

I have a small built in seat in our shower so I prop my leg up when shaving. it is way too narrow for me to sit on. After my knee replacement when I could not not prop my leg up like that, I sat on one of those small foldable stools and used a small container for water. It worked quite well. Most RV showers that I have seen (we are full timers) are way too small to put a portable seat in and then actually sit.

Many of those with way too small showers...like mine, have the toilet right in as part of the shower and you sit on the toilet to shave... but I looked her unit up, and a folding shower seat was all I could see to provide a fix for her, my other answer was... why shave if you are on vacation... or ...eek... use the public shower at the campground...

Ladies understand this perfectly. Leg shaving is very difficult in the typical RV shower. Add age in and many of us have to get creative to get the job done. This did not seem like an unusual question to me.

My wife agrees with this statement. And each lady has her own aches and squeaks. That combined with the fact that not all showers are the same, every solution will be different. That's why she couldn't take it seriously. There is no malice intended.
