The shower tent is an often "after-thought" when packing the camping equipment for the weekend get-away to the outdoors. Camping showers are an awesome camping accessory to bring along but despite that urge to "get-back-to-nature", nobody necessarily wants to expose themselves to everything, and everyone out there - which is where the camping shower tent comes in. These privacy shelters are lightweight, easy-to-pack, and surprisingly inexpensive. Today's shower tent comes in 3 basic styles. There are standard portable shower tents, pop-up shower tents, and double shower tents. There are pros and cons to them all, but each has its place at the campsite.

Portable Shower Tent

The standard portable shower tent is the traditional model. They function like regular tents, with poles & stakes. The advantage to the traditional portable shower tent is that they are generally more durable than pop up shower tents which offers a few benefits. One, they will do a better job at standing up to adverse weather conditions. Two, they are usually built around a sturdier frame that will support the weight of a shower bag better. And 3, they are usually larger than pop up versions, which means more room to move around.

The only real disadvantage to this type of portable shower tent is that there is a little more time & effort involved in setting it up and tearing it down.

Pop Up Shower Tent

The Pop Up Shower Tent has become quite popular over the past few years for 2 reasons: first, they are ridiculously fast & easy to setup and tear-down, and secondly they are cheap. Unfortunately, the word, "cheap" doesn't necessarily only apply to their low price tag. The pop up shower tent is an ingenious design, and one that has been taken overseas and mass-produced like crazy. This doesn't mean that they are all bad, but it does mean that in most cases you will get what you pay for, so the prudent buyer will want to be cautious and look for name brands and real customer / user reviews.

Double Shower Tent

A Double Shower Tent is the ultimate "luxury" camping shower tent. What separates these from the standard portable shower tents is their size. As the name suggests, the double shower tent offers you 2 separate rooms. This is a huge advantage because it allows you to change and store your dry clothes in one side, and then shower in the other.

The obvious disadvantage is that it is a much larger tent and therefore does not pack-down small enough for those camping trips where size & weight constraints are an issue (such as hiking, cycling, and back-packing). Unfortunately availability of these models is difficult as not too many manufacturers are currently making them.

Tent Showers

Tent showers are the shower units themselves that are used inside you shower tent. They come in a couple different styles and range in price accordingly. The most common tent showers are Solar Tent Showers, Propane Tent Showers, and Battery Operated Tent Showers. Each has there plusses and negatives depending on your situation, and ultimately your preference.

Solar Tent Showers

Solar tent showers are the absolute, lowest-cost camping shower option available. The great thing is, despite their inexpensive price, solar tent showers work great!

3 Biggest Advantages Solar Tent Showers Offer

  • Environmentally friendly
  • Lightweight & Packable
  • Inexpensive

Disadvantages

  • Require Sunshine to Heat Water
  • Require "Planning Ahead" as heating process takes time
  • Shower duration Restricted to Bag Capacity
  • Limited Water Pressure

Propane Tent Showers

Propane tent showers cost a little more than solar tent showers but their convenience, and often "on-demand" functionality makes them worth the additional cost in many campers' opinions.

Advantages Propane Tent Showers Offer

  • Hot Water - When and where you want it (On-demand)
  • Heats Water despite weather conditions
  • Adjustable water temperature
  • Lightweight options available

Disadvantages

  • Requires fuel (propane)
  • Weighs more than Solar Shower (propane tank)

Battery Operated Tent Showers

Battery operated tent showers are often called "tankless showers". Primarily these are water pumps that draw in water (from a bucket, stream, garden hose, etc..) and send it through to a shower head. Some of them even have there own built-in water heaters. Others can be used for hot showers by simply heating the water over a camp stove ahead of time. The main advantage to Battery Operated Tent Showers is that they provide "pressurized" water and don't rely on gravity. This means there's no need for hanging heavy shower bags overhead for pressure. The disadvantage is that they do require batteries, so when the batteries are dead, so is your shower.
