Use mine often to wash my hands, wash dishes, etc. Wife has used it to wash her hair when we're in a not to crowded spot.  I'd get it again.

My second owner Casita did not come with the outdoor but it would be on my list if I was buying a new one.

Use ours to rinse off the kayaks, the dog, the boots when you don't pay attention to the dog, and anything dusty and sandy before putting back into truck. Of course, that is with our 88 gallon fresh water tank on our fifthwheel, but I plan on having another one on my Casita.

Had the shower on our 2006 SD. Used it once to was my wife's hair. Now we camp most times in winter so our new Casita does not have one.

Had one on our first Casita but, being travelers and not really 'campers' did not see the need for one on our current one. Can understand that it would be handy if you need to clean up stuff outside though.

Since we usually do not have hook ups, so no city water, it would not be useful for us (too wasteful).  But with an unlimited water supply, it would be nice for muddy shoes, dogs, etc.

    my trailer didn't come with one. i see advantages/disadvantages. would probably keep the inside cleaner if you wash dogs/dishes/boots/hair outside but is also another area for freeze damage to possibly occur. i'd think of how you'll use the outside shower, then get it if it would be valuable for you. also, know you can always add it later if you want, others have done so fairly easily i think. best of luck on your decision..............

I changed mine to a quick connect type so hose can be removed. Have only used a couple of times for rinsing off feet when returning from beach. Only really handy when there are no hookups. If you have hookups I just use a Y-hose valve with one hose hooked to City Water and the other for rinsing things off.  When I ordered mine I fully intended on using it more often than I actually do. Where I usually camp they may frown on showering outside.  Not a pretty picture. :lol:  As mentioned would be great for rinsing off the pets when boondocking.
