Any updates on your guys rig, I finally got some car parts for the engine built hopefully Ill have it all built by next week end to get back to the truck. Do any of you guys have some kind of solar shower setup, I was thinking of using a 1 or 2 black pvc pipe on the cap to get a hot shower... yes im a princess I like showers hehehe

I'm going to be wiring up new LED floodlights on my cap sometime this week; I'm going to be putting it back on the truck for Memorial Day Weekend road trip.

As for a shower what would you use to hold and warm the water? I know they make outdoor showers for overland vehicles but no clue what they cost

Well I was thinking solar heat as the pvc is black and it could get really hot on warm days plus I had colder shower anyway...just a thought, lets face it only like 10% of those idea see the light of days but still tempted.

Most of the over landing showers cost a pretty penny. Not really an update to my rig but kinda my gear, been working on my new camp kitchen. Finally done with it.

Walmart sells a Coleman water sack that you can use for showering. I try to find it. But I like the PVC idea! I think the biggest PVC pipe you can get at a local hardware store is 4"? Get a 4' section and rig a hose on the end with a valve on the end of the hose and add a shower head! Or make a custom swing out rig that swings off the side of the rack. So many good ideas!
