Roof Mounted Solar Shower

Saw this posted over at IH8MUDs camping section in a shower thread.
Pretty cool idea, you pressurize it with a bike pump, and it holds five gallons.
I like the fact it is also built in the USA.

Re: Roof Mounted Solar Shower

I was reading up on this guy's project, and he first started out with plastic or ABS I think it was, but they are brittle.
The aluminum he is using now actually soaks up the sun better too warming up the water faster.

Not a bad unit though for those who have room on their roof rack.

Re: Roof Mounted Solar Shower

I might just have to find room on the trailer for this. Thanks for the share.

Re: Roof Mounted Solar Shower

That's awesome! A fixed shower head along with a fabbed up shower curtain would make it a 10/10.

Re: Roof Mounted Solar Shower

So Corey since I have a similar setup to you with the Bajarack and RTT, where would you mount this thing? Are there extension bars that will allow it to mount upright next to the RTT?
