    Use a battery powered liquid transfer pump to drain the heater tray to a gray water tote. Walmart has them for about $15.00.

    The floor in the Ozark Trail tent has mesh on the edges. We use biodegradable camp soap and I haven't ever had any issues. If I did, I would then stand in a plastic storage container.

    I stand in a trash can to shower! The whole setup is inexpensive and folds flat (except the shower, but you could always use something cheaper!) - Just blogged about it, link in signature.

    Pardon my ignorance: when you guys are speaking of a shower...do your pups have an external shower installed that you pull to the tent thing? I have an old pup and was thinking of fashioning some type of external pump shower

    I hook up a hose and sprayer to either my outdoor shower faucet or my outdoor sink faucet. It depends on what side of the camper the shower tent is on.

    That's a sweet setup, Crackerjack. I assume that's used mainly at full hookup spots? I have an old Pup with no external water faucet. Was thinking of putting a splitter inside at the sink to run a hose w/ shower head out side for a quick rinse. I mainly boondock

    You shower setup is identical to mine except I use my camper's outside shower. I just wanted to say I saw a camper identical to yours while camping over the 4th, that is one COOL camper!!!

    We love it so far. It's definitely an adjustment since we used to have a really big, awesome off-road PUP... but I can tow the and set up the new one myself, which I couldn't do before.

    My masterpiece :)
    It is a wall hung laundry sink. I installed some blocking behind the metal skin and attached the bracket. I roughed in hot and cold water under camper from inside sink. The drain is piped under camper to below inside sink drain exit.
    The sink rides in the camper, I pull it out, hang it on the side, connect bottom of steel braided supply lines, hand tight, to straight stops, tubular p-trap to trap adapter. It takes less than 5 minutes and doesn't require any tools.
    On the other side of the camper I hook up a prefabricated drain connection with fernco couplings. I use 1 1/2 sump pump hose to route to my gray water tote.
    It is great for washing dishes. I have a piece off garden hose and a sprayer that I screw on to the faucet. It is great for dry camping too.
