Best Solar Showers for Car Camping

What are the best solar showers for car camping?

When you are car camping, you don’t have a lot of space, especially if you are taking the whole family. But that doesn’t mean you can’t fit in an insulated solar shower that is going to help you stay fresh and clean, even if you are way out bush.

The best solar showers for car camping are

  • Compact – Fitting everything into your vehicle is a challenge when you go car camping. Turns out all those years playing tetris WERE useful! But seriously, you probably don’t have room for big fancy contraptions, so a solar shower that folds up nice and small is your best bet.
  • Easy to Fill – If you are bush camping there isn’t always a tap. And if there is precious tank water, you might not want to waste it on your shower. Look for a shower bag with a wide fill hole that you can dunk into ANY kind of water source.
  • Medium Capacity – Too big and you won’t be able to hang it, too small and you will run out of water. Somewhere between 10 and 20L is a good size for 1-5 people to have a decent shower from the one shower bag.

These two shower bags from the Summer Shower range are our best solar showers for car camping:
