The shower enclosure below is from Cabela's.
It costs around $100.00.
You can also use a tarp and some rope
to make your own, which will save you quite a bit of money.

try this one . . . just as a precaution to make sure that thing
doesn't fall down on you in the middle of your shower!
The next part of the shower is the Water System.
This is probably the most inexpensive one.
It's the Sun Shower.
It's basically warmed by the sun
and can hold 2 1/2 to 5 gallons of water, depending
on the size you buy.
The cost is anywhere between $15.00-$30.00.
They have them at Target and Walmart as well as the
Sporting Goods Stores.
The shower below is the Zodi Hotman Extreme S/C Shower.
(Sounds like the Binford 2000!)
The cost is $170.00.
The water is heated with a 16 oz. propane bottle,
and can also be used as a cook stove.
The propane bottles are easy to store and inexpensive.
16 oz. Propane Bottles are a great preparedness item
to have on hand.
There are several different types of shelters and shower systems.
Watch for the sales so that you can get the best price.
IN THE MEANTIME
You may want to stock up on a
little extra deoderant . . . JUST IN CASE!
