DIY roof rack mounted showers are common in the #vanlife and overlanding community. Alternatively, you could save yourself hours by heading to your local REI or rack store and picking up the Yakima RoadShower for this weekend’s adventure. The Yakima RoadShower looks to be a well designed and constructed turnkey solution with a number of features that add to the value of the investment.
Featuring a welded aluminum construction and durable powder coat finish, the durable construction allows pressures up to 55 psi, (or more depending on the model) and features a build in pressure relief valve for safety. (one pressures the tank via a Schrader air valve or garden hose)
Besides the time saved in fabricating one yourself, the RoadShower can be secured to your roof rack with the Yakima SKS lock core system. The feature that stands out for me though is the stick on thermometer strip that lets you know at a glance how warm the water is.
The Yakima RoadShower is available in 4, 7, & 10 gallon sizes. Learn more at Yakima.com or support the site by shopping for Yakima gear at retail partner REI.com.
