Put a Shower on Your Car

At one time or another, most of us have used a car as a hotel. A road trip, a bad-weather shelter, or a quiet place to get to know someone — those fold down seats make it our home away from home. But as great as they are, they often lack one important necessity — a shower. While nature works phenomenally as a half-bath, it doesn't always provide a lake to bathe in. Fortunately, there's the Road Shower.

Unlike other portable shower solutions, the Road Shower doesn't take up space in the car and provides a warm shower, since the black tank gets baked by the sun on the car's roof. You can use it like a garden hose, or secure it for a traditional hands-free shower.

The Road Shower can get more clean that just your sweaty body. Putting one of the choicest creature comforts on your car rack will get that mud off that filthy mountain bike, surf board, or hiking boots before they make a mess of your car.

After you fill the five gallon tank, grab a bike pump, CO2 canister, or whatever Schrader-valve compressor you have and pressurize it to 15 PSI (there is a bleed valve if you go over) and you're good to go.
