Luxury Camping – The Portable Shower and Cabana
Let’s face it a shower while camping is not a necessity for most. As a matter of fact we probably all can agree there are those that would consider a shower an absolute scared “no-no” if your a “REAL” camper. But when I was little I recall an aunt of mine bringing a portable solar shower and cabana to the beach for one of our great week long camp outs on the California Coast, and thinking now that is living the high life.
Now as an avid outdoors-man and camper I again look at showers as a luxury item and myself prefer to just jump into a cold stream or lake. However if I want my wife to join me camping for more than 12 hours a shower is required. So what about it. What types of Showers & Cabana set ups are there to choose from? Have Campers created their own concoctions in order to save a dollar and still developed a camp of a shower?
