Road Shower: Rack Mounted Solar Powered Shower
There’s nothing like a hot shower after a long day, especially a long day in the great outdoors. Unfortunately access to hot, pressurized water is quite limited in nature. That’s where the Road Shower comes into play, a roof rack mounted, solar powered shower perfect for cleaning up during camping trips.
Road Shower mounts to your car’s roof just like any typical roof rack, and uses the sun to heat up its 5 gallon tank. You can expect 3 short showers from the tank’s capacity, and depending on the weather, the water can be heated to nearly 115 degrees – but where does the pressure come from? The Road Shower can be pressurized by simply hooking up a bike pump (or CO2 canister). The seven setting nozzle is perfect for taking showers, but is also great for cleaning muddy boots, camp dishes, muddy bikes, fish, anything really. The Road Shower is looking to hit the retail scene in March of 2014 with a price tag of about $299. Watch the video below and support the project on Kickstarter.
