Why do I always see so many people trudging over to use the CGs facilities. At this time of year, it was frequently high 20s low 30s in the mornings, but there they go, towels/soap/clothes in hand, both males and females.

Some are coming out of large MHs, some from large 5vers, while the ones from a smaller TT, I do understand.

I mean its like clockwork regardless of weather. And a few of these facilities that I've got curious about and looked at, had no heat!

Have you got so much junk that its stored in the shower?
Are afraid that if you use your facilities it'll ruin resale value?
Do you even know how to use your own facilities?
Do you not have a sewer hose so you can dump?
Do you know how to dump?
Do you have a problem and they're inoperative?

It does'nt matter to me really, I'm just terribly curious. I feel its almost too personal to ask someone in person.

There are many many people who simply do not use their in house facilities. Just do a search about how many people place used toilet paper in a bag instead of down the toilet for some insite into the lack of understanding among a lot of RVers

I like to have more room than our shower provides. I'm 6'3" and not a skinny guy so eventhough our shower in the 5th wheel is large, I like the room the CG showers provide. In addition, no shortage of hot water so I can take a long relaxing shower.

Walking through the cold doesn't bother me as long as I know I can get warm in the shower or back at the RV.

My kids love to take looooong showers so they use the campground facilities. The DW and I uae the fivers. Its a matter of preference.

My TT had a large shower, used it all the time. My old MH had a small shower and never used it. New MH has a larger shower and I will be using it. Most CG I've been to have nice handicapped showers with room to undress/dress on bench. Can't do that standing any more.

Well I used to store junk there save when I needed to use it
No, not an issue
YES I do
Yes I do
Yes I do
Yes there is: LOW flow, Small size, The campground showers are kind of small for my six foot plus 300 pound minus body, The RV;s shower is even smaller.. Plus the water heater... SIX GALLONS,, Not much of a shower let me tell you.

And that's why I trudge to the park shower. Small size,, low flow and little hot water.

But yes, I do use my shower when there is a reason to do so, even in a campground. (Epically if the CGs shower is a bit lacking on heat).


Home is where I park it.

If you really, actually want to know, stop them and ask. That's the only way you'll find out.
