Just bought a PU with an outside shower. The wife will only use it if she has an enclosure of some sort. Any ideas or experience?

Here are some examples of tent enclosures for use with showers or porta potties.

Youo can use PVC and a tarp to make an outside shower enclosure. Natasha's Camping Site has a good example. That site has a number of other good ideas for mods.

Bass Pro Shop has one for 29.99 that I going to try and pick up today for my weekend trip.  Online item number 38-655-871-24.  Its a pop up type.  I figure for 30.00 its worth a shot if it keeps DW happy.

Any suggestions for draining the shower into a container rather than just onto the ground?  Not sure if this is a requirement for a state park, but at the very least it would help minimize the mud.

Most state parks and many federal parks require that you catch the gray water and then dump it at the dump station, not on the ground.  This goes for dishwater, toothbrushing, and handwashign water also.  I have a shower tent from K-Mart that has a removable "tub" as they call it to catch the gray water in.  Hard part is getting it into a container to transport to the dump station, but its not that bad.  Have only used a shower in it one time, rest of the time it houses the potti only.

I purchased a shower tent last year, it is the kind with just the regular tent bottom and mesh around the bottom corner.  Unless you are on perfectly level ground, it tends to pool in the bottom.  My thought is to build a 2x4 frame w/ plywood on top, the size of the frame (minus the mesh) so that the mesh part hangs down.  Then, I was thinking of attaching some PVC (slit open in half to make a half circle "gutter") and use this to direct the water towards a drain, where I could put it into a bucket or container.  Most the parks around here I believe allow you to dump your water under where the community faucet is -- we have washed dishes at the faucet in the past.
