I’ve seen loads of them around and people like them as far as I can tell. I didn’t have the funds, so built my own out of pvc. I’m not sure if you can pressurize those, but gravity alone doesn’t seem to be enough in my opinion. Not sure if this was any help for ya

I have it and used it a couple of times. It's a little on the heavy side when filled of course so hopefully you have a good solid rack to hold it. My Yakima rail system on top of my camper shell is not as sturdy as I like so I do have to make sure that I tighten my rack down before I use the Road Shower. Other than that it works as designed. Nice pressurized water and in the Sun it warms it up nicely. I'm not too handy so I bought my setup.

@ RoarinRow I just picked up the Road Shower 10G for my new build and I can't seem to get it to hold pressure past 50PSI. I hear the relief valve releasing pressure as soon as it hits 50PSI. Which is fine except I lose all pressure with over half the tank still full. Have you experienced this?

Hi @lbrow no I haven't experienced that. I normally fill it and forget it and do quickly enough where I don't look at the pressure gauge once I reach near the target pressure. Maybe one of the values is not on tight enough?

They are def. on tight enough it's actually coming from the pressure relief valve itself. It's brand new so I put a support ticket in with Yakima.
The cap with the pressure relief valve is only $27.00 so I can't imagine they'd have an issue replacing mine.
Thanks for your quick response though and happy trails!
