I'm looking at buying a shower tent/ensuite. The Coleman "Insta set" seems to be fairly simple to erect. It only has a 12 month warranty partly I guess because of all the moving parts that can go wrong. I've also looked at the Oztrail ensuite dome. There is an "Outdoor Connection" outhouse and ultra ensuite that has a special internal pocket that keeps your towel and clothing dry while showering. It's manufactured in Queensland and I haven't come across any in Victoria. Has anyone had any experience with the Outdoor Connection ensuite?

While not answering your question but on the same topic I thought I would include the following:
I bought a Ozitrail Shower/toilet tent. I was great until I tried to fold back up. Many many hours and 4 different people could not do it.
My son said ”Aren’t you taking the toilet tent? And I replied NO, if I can not fold it up in the garage in the cool, I would have buckleys of doing it in the bush and would end up throwing it on the fire!
Went to the shop where I bought it and the bloke there undid another one and failed to fold it back up. So I went back the next day when the other guy who is the expert with them was there. He could not get yesterdays one folded so he opened another one. Guess what, he failed to fold it up and gave up after 45 minutes trying. So now they have two open ones plus the one on display.
He said it takes less than 2 min to do but he seems to have lost the technique, although he has done it many times 9 months ago.
If you buy one make sure they teach you how to repack it into its bag. Maybe even take some photos of how it is done.

I found if you RTFM (printed on the inside of the bag) it's a piece of cake to fold them ;-)

It actually takes 15 seconds to fold.

Who folds them up .I just collapse it flat and load it on top of the camper before the cover goes on. If I camp and dont need to put up shower tent it lays on the ground under the camper for the effort at all.

Buy a Sitro Pop up Change Shelter, very easy to fold & virtually bullet proof. Should cost around $79.00
