We've got the solar shower but we try to camp in the trees so chasing the sunny through the trees isn't very effective. As for the soap, I'd be willing to skip it to just get that top layer of dirt off!!!! However, we pack our gear in "Action Packer's" so it would be easy to fill it and move away from any water source. Thanks for the heads up on the soap issue!!I've wanted one of the types mentioned here but it always seems the solar shower and a rope over a tree limb works good. BTW, many places sell a adapter so that you may refill the green coleman tanks and need not toss them out. Couple years back camping at eagle lake a ranger busted some poor fool using a zodi since he was not using a catch basin and the soapy water was just running onto the ground. Hummm.... If too near a stream or water source i can see why discharging onto the ground might not be good, even w/ so-called biodrgradable soaps. Seems its best to be as far away from water source as possible. That = lots of hose. All told i like LDs proven method of the on board exchanger-- still have to use hoses but its one less thing to pack, haul and maintain.
"out of stock"Spend the money and buy the r&m hot water shower. It's by far the best one out there. Mines over 10 years old and comes off the vehicle when I sell them. I never open the hood and it's nice never to run out of hot water.
I have talked to them a few times in the past. His wife usually answers the phone. They have regular jobs and he does this on the side. Talked to them last year so hopefully they are still in business. Nice people.yeah yeah, i tried that first bjut after calling them a few times and they never answer the call, google found the posted link to hot camp showers. so thats the question, are they in business or kaput?

Typically not. Even nuclear waste is biodegradeable with enough time. The "biodegradable" soap is not that much different from regular soap. Best to keep direct drainage away from the stream if at all possible. Ok, ok, yea I have done it too, but that doesn't make it right...I have biodegradable "camp soap", just the cheap stuff you can get at Wally-World. Would this stuff be okay to use near a water source??? While it doesn't work as well as shampoo and real soap, it would be great for eliminating a layer of dirt and trail grime.
Hmm.. I am sensing a business opportunity here.

The R&M is a good product but quite expensive, the Helton seems to be much less expensive.
Piranha off road and Twine have them too but like the glind, they're aussie made and I don't know of any US distributors. You can get the Helton from a US distributor and unlike the glind, there are no bare butts on their web page!!
