Why people love it

  • Does the job 
  • An awesome price 
  • Heats quickly and retains the heat well  

This 5-gallon camping shower is more than cost-effective; it’s an amazing portable shower. The hose is a decent length and the pressure isn’t terrible either. 

The plastic handle isn’t as sturdy as we would like. Some users also experienced some difficulty using the hose. 


You shouldn’t expect a lot of frills when you buy a budget camping shower. And, as long as you live by that adage, you will be delighted with this product. It is basic, but it does an amazing job. The 5-gallon capacity provides enough water for three or four showers and the pressure is surprisingly good.

This solar-heated shower heats up rather quickly and holds the heat well. Additionally, it’s easy to transport, set up, and pack away. That said, you won’t get much more than that; the handle isn’t as strong as we would like nor is the hose as flexible as other models. But, still, look at the price.
