The Best Solar Camping Showers

So you are camping with a vehicle, but it’s not a big caravan or RV – what solar camping showers are best for you?

When you have a car, you don’t need to worry so much about getting a lightweight solar camping shower because you don’t have to hike around with it on your back…

But you won’t necessarily have a high enough vehicle to use our giant 38L bag, which is designed to be filled up when it is lying on top of your caravan or RV. So you will need a solar camping shower that you can easily hang up.

How many people will be using the solar camping shower when you are car camping?

There are a couple of options for car camping, but it really comes down to how many of you there are. And of course, how much hair you have to wash!

Here is a guide to help you choose:

The 3 Gallon / 11.5 Litre Summer Shower gives you about 3 minutes of

running water, which is good for one person.

The 5 Gallon / 19 Litre Summer Shower gives you about 5 minutes of running water and is good for two people.

So you can mix and match any combination of these to suit your family’s size.

The important thing to remember is that the 11.5L solar shower is going to heat up faster than the 19L, simply because there is less water to heat up.

Both of these solar camping showers are durable and insulated (they stay hot longer) – really good options for car camping.

Summer Shower EnclosureThey also have a comfortable handle with a clip for easy hanging and work brilliantly with our Summer Shower Enclosure.

You might be out bush or you might be in a holiday park. Either way, it’s great to be able to have a hot shower in privacy!
