My wife and I don't understand. We are staying at a nice rv park filled with nice rv's. We watched a man get out of his perfictly nice class C and go use the parks public shower. I know everyone is different and I am not judging his action. We just don't get why you would use a public facility when you have your own?

Shower size.... I know several people who simply can't stand the size of their shower.

My pressure is terrible, and the nozzle is at chest-height.. I need the nozzle on my head. I don't have a fancy class C, but I can see going to the public shower if it's nice.

DW is the opposite. She never uses public restrooms or showers unless it absolutely can be helped.

I'm right there with you. I have never understood that. Thats one of the main reasons we have a camper. I couldnt tell you what the inside of a bath house looks like in any park I've been to in the last twenty years

Why the shower house?
your own shower

Could be any of the above. We have used them when we had our big TT. Some of the bathrooms in the parks are nice. Offer large spaces, better waterflow and continuous hot water. Plus, you are not filling up your gray tank. Was he by himself? Maybe his wife and kids were using the one inside the motorhome and they were going somewhere. In the essence of time, that could be another reason.

My question is, why were you watching him go to the bathroom? lol

as others have stated, bigger showers, unlimited hot water, don't have to wipe it all dry when I'm done. But if we're on full hookups, I'd rather just use my own because I like to shower in the evening and put my nightgown on afterward.

I will add another reason to this list.

Personally, I just really relax and loosen up in the shower (NOT LIKE THAT-SHAME ON YOU)!
What I mean is, my muscles really loosen up and my whole body stops hurting in the shower. So my showers tend to be l-o-n-g. At home anyway.
When Im out. I have a tendency to take my showers late night. #1 because the temps outside are cooler. #2 I can take a 30 min. shower and "know" that nobody else is waiting for me to get out.

I only use ours when the public ones are in bad shape, too small.
