There have been a few discussion about shower and potty tents in various threads, so I thought it would be a good idea to pull it all together here:
"Re the PahaQue privy shelter...it's nice but also check out the P.E.T.T. shelter. The Pett shelter goes up ALOT faster because the rods (shock cords) are built right in on hinges and the shelter just folds open and closes down quickly....although I think the PahaQue has a few more bells and whistles. I have a large PahaQue ScreenRoom and love it but it is time intensive to put up. (not a fair comparison to the privy I know) Cabelas also has a very nice privy shelter for $99 but it looks time intensive also. I've been in one and they're really roomy (4.5 sq ft base) and nice but haven't seen them set up or taken down. At this point you may think that a few more minutes to put up and take down is no big deal...but the more you're out there, the less hassle and more EASE of setting up and taking down anything becomes more desirable...especially on one-night stops."Pahaque TepeeExpeditionswest:
"Vince is absolutely correct about the shower enclosures. After a few days, Steph and I got pretty quick with the Tepee, but it is definitely a two person job. Maybe 3-4 minutes. The greatest advantage of the Tepee is the design when deployed. Thick rods support the tent, and can even support you if you need to hold on while putting on socks or whatever. There are two internal gear storage netting units. One for shower items like soap and shampoo, and another that hangs high in the top, which you can store your clean, dry clothes in. There are also zippered access points on the sides, which allow you to bring in shower heads, access towels, etc.
One of the other cool things is the horizontal poles on the outside, which allows you to hang towels and dry clothes you have washed"
The PETT System
Vince had this cool shower deck in Baja. I need to get one . I was using my spearfishing fins to stand on.
This is the big daddy Vince talked about from Cabelas:
It does weigh 23 pounds though
I also considered this Outback unit: no set-up
This should make for a good start
