    My family and I are going boondocking in northern Michigan for our first time and we were looking at getting a portable shower. We looked at a few options like the zodi hot shower, or a handheld battery powered shower nozzle with water heated over a fire.

    what does everyone else use?

    For a very brief time, I used one of those 5 gallon solar heated showers. Rigging a way to get 40 pounds of water up over your head consistently led to that device getting put in a closet and eventually lost to time. Before the TT, we just did wet wash cloths, which got us through.

    there is a new USP-charged dual battery pumped shower on Amazon - it looks appealing

    Reviews on this aren't very impressive for battery life, or taking a charge after awhile. But it did have my attention by design..

    20 years now still using a single burner Zodi, i preheat the water in a 5 gallon container then turn burner off at desired temp. Then shower..

    I would also look into the Eccotemp L5 i think it is, lots of dispersed campers are going this route of late.

    Helios is another to take a look at, have a buddy who loves his.

    Good Luck..
