Do you use your on board shower or the one at the campground?
One of the first things I look at when shopping for an RV is how usable the shower is.
As a fulltime RVer, the shower needs to be large enough to move around in easily with an adequate hot water supply to avoid the usual on/off method of showering.
If this is to be my home, I expect to live comfortably and that includes having a good shower experience.
On the other hand, during weekend trips or a short vacation, making use of the campground facilities can make pretty good sense too.
One tip to remember though, with the smaller 6-gallon water heater an on/off method of showering is pretty much mandatory unless you like a really cold rinse.
With an upgraded 10-gallon model you can manage a continual stream shower, if you don’t dally.

I’ve been involved in RVing for over 50 years — including camping, building, repairing, and even selling RVs and motorhomes. I’ve owned, used, and repaired almost every class and style of RV ever made. I do all of my own repair work. My other interests include cooking, living with an aging dog, and dealing with diabetic issues. If you can combine a grease monkey with a computer geek, throw in a touch of information nut and organization freak, combined with a little bit of storyteller… you’ve got a good idea of who I am. To date, I've shared my RV knowledge in over 300 articles here at The Fun Times Guide!
