Rack Mounted Shower

Hi...I saw this rack mounted solar shower on kickstarter and thought it looked cool. Would be great to have a hot shower at the end of a run or be able to hose down the kayak or raft if it was a bit muddy.

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/...d-hot-water-on

Has anyone tried one of these?

I met a woman in eagle county who has an original. I dont know who did what first, but it can be done with pvc as well.

I think this production model with aluminum will hold the heat longer than pvc.

You can make your own for $20 bucks or spend a little more on a better build.

I also think they went away from pvc to aluminum because it last longer and is not as affected by the sun.

good idea.

Yes, they are great. I spent some time with the inventor while he was perfecting his early prototypes. He lives in Colorado, not to mention is a boater. I believe he has found a local (UT) manufacturer as well. The RoadShower can be pressurized with a bike pump, at the gas station or I believe he even has an accessory Co2 pump available. Anyone who has taken out at the Dirty Devil ramp for Cataract this season, I am sure would of loved this on their vehicles waiting in the lot. Definitely support this project and it wont be long before they are a common sight at boat ramps and trail heads.

Hi Joel,
No need to pretend. This is your creation. It looks very interesting. Just put it in a post asking people what they think and if they would like to buy in on your kickstarter campaign.
The best of luck to you with this. I think it is great that you are making them in CO!
