Best Water Heaters for Showers in A Campervan or Car
Submitted: Friday, Sep 14, 2007 at 18:05
I'm seeking some advice on what the best shower system is to install into a campervan. I have a 50litre cold water tank
but want to be able to access it as well as an external source (like a bucket or creek with a hose) to enjoy a hot shower when on the road.
I know that Twine and Glind both make and sell heat exchangers with the pump and showerhead but I'd like to hear from people who have installed either on what suggestions, ideas or recommendations they'd make. Should I buy the kit or just the exchanger? Is there a better way to go about this? Which one should I buy?? Any thoughts gratefully accepted. Hope your travels are smooth and enjoyable, Best regards, Ronnie.

You say your requirements are to install it into a campervan, so the vehicle mounted heat exchangers wouldn't be that practical.
Have you considered a "portable" style water heater such as the Coleman gas fired hot water heater with shower attachment.
Most people would use a shower tent, adjacent to the camper.
The pickup hose can be inserted in a bucket, or creek if you are close enough, or probably attached to a storage tank if that is your preference.
