​What’s the Best Portable Shower for Camping?

by Eccotemp Canada

If you’re a camper, you know too well that hot water is a luxury you can’t afford to miss. Hot water is a go-to for taking much-needed showers, washing dishes, and other camping activities. With so many options to choose from on the market, how do you choose a portable shower? Let’s help you figure out an outdoor camping shower that will meet your expectations!

What’s a portable camping shower?

As the name suggests, a portable camping shower allows you to take showers whenever needed. They essentially work by using an engine and pump system, and once you set up the shower and engine with the tank and hose, you can connect the shower head to the hose and plug in the engine. Once the engine is running, water is pumped into your tank!

Here's your guide to buying a portable shower for your next camping trip.

Eccotemp has a range of portable showers that will exceed your expectations on your next camping trip. By purchasing one of our portable camping water heaters, you can access an unlimited supply of hot showers while camping. Pack up your shower hose in your camping shower bag, set it up with your tankless water heater, and voilà!
