Shower tent for camping

Mount Rhino privacy pop-up tent for camping showers

One of the challenges of camping can be privacy and the ability to take showers.  We found the Mount Rhino pop-up shower tent to be just what we need. It is roomy and tall with dimensions of 48 by 48 at 6 foot 9 inches tall. The tent is spacious enough for both a parent and child to assist in showering and washing their hair.

This privacy tent is very easy to pop up. However, we found it a bit more of a challenge to fold the tent compactly similar to your windshield sunshades. After watching a great YouTube video, we now have the hang of it. Be sure to practice how to fold up your tent before heading to the boondocks, to save yourself some frustration.

We set-up the tent where we can use our outdoor shower, accessible from one side of our truck camper. The tent has stakes, as well as pockets to fill with sand or rocks, to stand up to the wind. We have connected the tie downs of one side of the tent to our truck camper for added stability.

I like the inside mesh bags for holding soap and shampoo, as well as a hook and towel strap. The hook can be used for a flashlight or your toiletry bag.

The Mount Rhino portable shower tent can also be used for privacy for an outdoor toilet or changing room. The tent is made of high-quality waterproof polyester with heavy-duty zippers and strong stitching.

The top of the tent has an opening for the shower wand and hose to feed through. The Mount Rhino comes with a separate floor section to keep your feet clean, though we have not tried that out yet. We wear water shoes without the floor when making mud is not a problem, as well as to walk back inside, simply kicking off our shoes to keep the camper floor clean. We also carry a fake “grassy” welcome mat that works well to stand on while showering.

While boondocking, water is at a premium so we simply wet down, turn the water off to soap up, then quickly rinse. We figure it takes 1 to 2 gallons per person for a quick shower without washing my long, thick hair. Washing my hair takes another gallon of water.

This handy tent also comes with a rain fly, should you want to use it for a privy or outdoor changing area during inclement weather. We found the material quickly air dries. To avoid mold, be sure to thoroughly dry out your tent before collapsing and storing it.
