We have a converted VWT5 campervan and are a family of five with a large golden retriever dog. Our VW converted campervan does not have a shower in the van, so we have been on the look out for the best portable shower for vanlife in our VW camper. Here are a few of the best portable showers for camping.

Portable shower for vanlife

IF you have tried your hand at camping with kids or vanlife then you will know that not all campsites have great facilities. Sometimes you just need to wash the sand off a paddleboard or if you are camping with a dog, they may have muddy paws to rinse off. We have also enjoyed many a festival with kids in our campervan, and spent many an hour queuing for the washrooms onsite. We recently found this gorgeous family friendly campsite on the banks of a river with limited facilities. This got me thinking about the different portable shower setups for vanlife and we have found just the answer!!! Here are some of the best portable camper van showers.
