After 40 years on the road in hotels 3 - 4 nights a week all over the world you'd be surprised at what I've seen in "public" places. We run with a 40 yr old TT (in very good shape) both FHU and Boonies. I want my own toilet and my own shower and my own bed, period. I even stop along the hiway and take dump in my own toilet as we travel along. The DW wants the same thing. She's from a medical background.
Hiway rest stops and gas station toilets give me the willies YUCK!
Same with public showers
Dumping the tanks doesn't bother me a bit as its mine, all mine :-)
Your mileage may vary

Only use my own shower and toilet. I avoid public facilities whenever possible.

My own because it seems I always come in right after the guy who had 2 extra large beef and bean burritos the night before.

I know my bathroom may or may not be cleaner than the park's but its my dirt.

I did a search in this forum about the best TP for RV's and got as many opinions as I expected. Everyone has one.

Sometimes when I am awake early (most days) so as not to disturb DW. Sometimes it is just nice to have unlimited hot water and room to stretch. I have stayed in some places where they were so nice they park felt insulted if you didn't use them.

On one of our first camping trips after we bought our first Class A we were at a state park in Florida. One day all the cops and rangers were at the public facilities. Seems one lady was taking a shower and while she was showering she looked up and there was a man in the ladies room watching her. So ladies be very careful if you use the public facilities.

Most of the campgrounds I stay at have fairly large showers (compared to the telephone booth this RV has) and very large how water heaters compared to the 6 gallon job I have. Thus using the campground shower means a long hot shower where I can reach all my body parts without exiting the stall easily.

This campground is an exception.. Oh they have the bigger heater. but the showers are the same size.. And with S.E. Ga Weather after I get back from the shower I often need another shower.. So I use my own and fully dry off before I go outside.
Home is where I park it!

Taking a shower in my own is so much easier than taking everything to the campground shower and worrying when it was cleaned last.My grey tank can go a week then I move water to the black tank for a few more days.

We made our purchasing decision of the MH based on the shower and the unlimited hot water from the Aqua Hot. We purchased a MH to get away from motels and public restrooms of any kind.
