The Top Five Best RV Shower Heads

In this post, we are going to review 5 of the best RV shower heads available. Traveling in your RV is such an incredible experience. It opens up so many opportunities to explore the outdoors and enjoy what nature has to offer.

Hiking, fishing, swimming in lakes, sitting outside covered in bug spray, are all things that you may experience while enjoying RV life which will inevitably lead you to need a shower by the end of the day. Or weekend. We don’t judge.

But to many RVer’s disappointment, the standard shower head in your RV bath leaves a lot to be desired.

They dribble water due to a lack of water pressure, which may be important when dry camping, but did you know there are after-market shower heads that can give you a better shower experience using that same limited amount of water pressure?

Or what about those times when you are in a place with full hookups and water conservation is not as important?

I have great news for you, you do not have to settle for the shower head that came with your RV! That’s right, you can swap that junky ol’ shower head out for something better made, less wasteful, and more powerful!

Here are our top five picks for the best RV shower heads.

The Oxygenics 92489 Fury features five spray settings supported by technology that will increase the water pressure in low-pressure environments.

It has rubber finger grips to better help you control and manage the shower head when in use and a flow control lever to adjust the shower pressure to your liking.

It also includes a 72″ hose to easily reach anywhere in the shower.

We love this easy-to-install model because with 5 different spray settings you can switch between a water conservation mode, for when you’re boondocking or wanting to save water, and a residential type shower for when you’re enjoying the amenities of full hook-up locations.

When showering this showerhead has a quick-off lever that will leave the water trickling at the temp you had so when you’re done soaping up you can easily turn the water back on without losing the original temp of the water.

The Oxygenics Body Spa Handheld Shower provides push-button flow control. The design of the showerhead provides increased pressure and a larger coverage area.

It has a pause valve that will limit water flow when water conservation is a concern. The non-stick internal parts prevent mineral buildup, even in hard water conditions.

The showerhead comes with a 60″ hose, wall mount, and plumber’s tape.

Users love this shower head because they find the pressure far outperforms the original shower heads they have in their RVs, they also like that it is very reliable and requires very low maintenance.

Another great perk of this shower head is that the shut-off valve can be installed at the shower handles vs the shower head if that is your preference.

The Camco 43711 Shower head has an on/off switch and has five spray patterns. The shower head is 4” at its widest point and 9” long. It is the most affordable shower head on our list, more than likely because the hose is not included with the purchase of the shower head.

This shower head also does not have a trickle option for water conservation so if you often need to watch the amount of water you’re using, this may not be the best fit for you.

Most users found installation to take less than 5 minutes and were thrilled with the ease with which it installs into the existing water connection.

Some users did note that the on/off switch is slightly more difficult to use than other shower heads so this may not be a great fit for anyone elderly or who struggles with finger dexterity.

Questions about the RV shower head change out

Is there anything I should know before I get started?

You don’t need to be a professional plumber to be successful with changing out the shower head in your RV.

Just remember to make sure the water is off before you begin to prevent an accidental shower before you’re ready!

How do I replace just the shower head?

Replacing just the shower head is as simple as unscrewing the old shower head from the hose and screwing on the new one.

A wrench may be necessary if the shower head has been screwed on tightly but in most cases, your hand strength should be sufficient.

If you do need to use a wrench and are concerned about scratches, place a thin cloth between the shower head and the wrench before tightening or loosening.

How do I replace the hose and the shower head?

If you are changing out the hose and shower head you’ll want to unscrew the hose from the water supply in the shower.

Then you can connect your new hose where you disconnected the old one and finally attach the shower head.

Can I remove any of the old mounts or rings?

If you remove the original mount or rings to replace it with a new mount or ring that does not require screws, we suggest filling the holes with a kit specifically made to repair holes for fiberglass showers or whichever type of shower surround you have in your RV.

The same advice would be given if you’re simply moving the existing or new mount to a new location within the shower.

That’s it. That’s all there is to changing out a shower head in your RV. If you still are unsure that this is something you will be able to handle without assistance, visit youtube and search for how-to videos of RV shower head changeouts. You will be able to see just how simple the process really is!

Final Thoughts

Regardless of which shower head you choose, we know you won’t regret changing it! The increase in water pressure and appearance are well worth the minimal money and time spent to replace the boring, weak-pressured shower head that came standard with your RV.
