While some people are fortunate enough to have Living Quarters or pull their horse trailers with RVs, we just have our camper topper. In order to shower, we’ve had to get a little creative. One of the great things about our solution is that it works for anyone who has a horse trailer whether you sleep in a tent or an gooseneck or in the back of your car. You don’t need to do any installation work on your trailer and can set this up y yourself. This will also work for people sleeping over at horse shows and events, not just for campers.
First you’ll need the following supplies:
Solar shower – Amazon has a bunch
Inflatable kiddie pool – we bought one on sale for $7.50. Feel free to get a cheapie.
Bungee Cord – again, no specific recommendation
Camp Chair (optional)
First, fill your solar shower and set it out in the sun. We usually fill it in the morning and leave it to heat while we’re out riding. Once the water’s hot, hang your solar shower in your trailer and place your inflated kiddie pool beneath it.
We use the bungee cord to keep our trailer door shut as it doesn’t have a handle on the inside. As a bonus, it works great as a clothesline for your dirty clothes. We use the chair to hold clean clothes and our toiletries. You could use a bucket or other stand for this.
When you’re done showering, you can dump out the water in the kiddie pool and this saves your trailer floor from getting wet.
