    Which water heater shower is descent without breaking the budget. I would like to have a outdoor shower. Some people say electric and most say gas. I just want safe and reliable.

    "water heater shower?" Are you speaking of the water pressure unit you can shower with outside the camper? We keep the heating unit and pressure unit separate, so they're easy to fix.

    Nice to have you here with us!

    I don't use either gas or electric. HERE is my previous post on my shower setup.

    Go to Home Depot and get a 2 gallon pump sprayer, use your stove to heat some water, put it in the sprayer, pump it up, shower.
    Less than 20 bucks. Add a privacy tent if you want- another 30-100 bucks.

    Thanks for letting me know how you clean yourself, but that wasn't my question.

    I shower outside n a privy tent. Coldest was 28f. I preheated tent with hot furnace exhaust, roof offf of tent and proper venting. Turn on water and let it rip. No navy showering this cold. Get done run naked to pre heated pup. This is perfectly ok off grid. Choose a private campsite at campground or just use a towel.

    Do you have a water heater on your pup, and outside shower?

    No I don't I want to purchase one from Home Depot or Lowe's. I dont have a shower/bathroom tent and one of those solar shower bags that is extremely heavy once filled and I have to find something that can carry the weight if I use it.

    THIS doesn't need to be hung up because it sits on the ground and you pump it with your foot. You can either heat it by solar or just add some hot water to warm it up. I have done both. It holds about three gallons of water. My wife uses it also and has never run out of water for her shower even with her longer hair (takes more rinsing). I can get my shower done using about two gallons.

    THANKS for reminding me that I HAVE a Zodi! It came with my NTMe pup and I put it away in the closet. Mine was modified to hook up directly to water spigot/outlet.
    Woo-hoo, next weekend when I go camping I'll take the little propane tank along and test it for lighting up and heating! I already tested it last year without lighting up, on an outdoor water spigot and the flow works fine. Those little buggers are kind of expensive. Mine doesn't have the battery operated pump, but has a modified, direct water inlet connect from hose bib.
    Woo hoo, if it ever gets cold in FL (rare except Jan-Feb) I can have hot water. Just need to figure out how to channel various hoses into a shower tent, but leave the heater outdoors as required for safety. I HATE showering in a public restroom, usually just go without on short trips.
