Recreational vehicle shower heads are not the same as those you find in your home. An RV shower head must be light, have a hand-held capability, and come as a low-volume unit with shutoff capability. The importance of saving a limited supply of water comes naturally in an RV as the tank has a limited capacity. The water heater is powered off the RVs battery, making extra use of hot water a power liability. All in all, the advantages of a good shower head in an RV are incalculable. Here are the top ten available on the market today.
1. Dura Faucet RV Shower Head & Hose Kit
This kit is recommended as a replacement shower head for recreational vehicles, motor homes, campers, and trailers. The unit is easy to install with no plumbers necessary. The shower head and hose consist of lightweight, durable plastic designed with an easy hand-hold grip on the wand and a push-button trickle mechanism. With a hose length of 60-inches and a maximum flow rate of 2.2 gpm, the shower head is ideal for RV shower applications.
2. Camco 43713 Shower Head Kit
Camco offers an RV shower head with a chrome finish over a light-weight and durable plastic. The flexible hose comes in at a full 60-inches while the shower head has a nine-inch wand with a four-inch head surface that offers five spray options from a complete rain-forest deluge to a fine mist. The kit comes with washers, wall mount, and installation hardware. An on/off switch allows for water shutoff while shampooing to conserve water.
3. Builders Shoppe 4120WT Shower Set

Installing this shower head kit provides the possibilities of using as a stationary head or as a hand-held device.
4. Dura Faucet Shower Head and Hose Kit (Chrome)

The head has a three-inch face uniquely designed with 42 self-cleaning nozzles that blast water at an accelerated rate. The head consists of a heavy-duty rust-proof plastic that resists wear. The oil-rubbed bronze finish is an attractive addition to an RV shower setup and can be removed to be used elsewhere.
