One of the things that sold us on our coach was the size of the shower. Some showers you can just about turn around in.

Attend a football game in Texas in September, and you will want a shower at the end of the day. We use it whether we are on hook-up or dry camping. Fortunately we have some pretty good sized holding tanks.

Almost 2000 showers in our coach since we purchased it less than three years ago.

My health is not the best--so because most campground showers are cold (not the water the air temp) I always shower in my RV---MY Itasca 37B and my 24' TT. I turn on the RV floor heater and then jump in the shower. My wife complains and moves outside and if it's night she just sucks it up and asked me to hurry. LOL. My son like to brag he installed heating elements in his bathroom floor. But I did one better my heating plates are in the floor so I put the bathroom rug over the floor plates and I have a heated floor rug to stand on.

I use our shower, DH usually uses campground's. He likes lots of pressure and hot water and is willing to gather up his washing gear and walk to and from the shower block. Me, I like having all my stuff handy and stepping in and our of my own shower with closet of clean clothes right there and no walking around carrying stuff. We have a large roomy shower in our new-to-us class A but even in our 24' class C I always used our coach shower.

we use the shower its bigger than the one at home. I wait about 15-20 minutes after wife is done and always have plenty hot water unless the incoming water is below 45 degree's in that case i also turn on the gas.

We always use our shower in the Motorhome. That is why we have it. Plus we take our grandchildren along a lot and trust me, 3 and 5 year olds need a bath at night. lol
We had to get creative with them though, we put a little plastic stool in and passed them the wand. For kids not use to showers, they caught on quick. I got a little wet cause they didn't like to shut the door, but whatever works! They like to go with Nannie and Pappa so they have a shower. No ifs ands or buts.

Almost always use the shower in our coach daily when hooked to utilities and every other day when boondocking (with sponge baths on the 'tween day.)
