Simple Shower Evap?

Hi,

Last time we went our shower evap sucked. I am wondering if anyone has a suggestion on how to set up a simple shower evap for a shower for 4-5 people.

Not looking for anything fancy just something that works well and is easy setup and tear down if possible.

Re: Help with DIY cold wear

For night, you can buy thrift coats and easily hand stitch or safety pin faux fur or whatever exotic fabric to. Another idea is to collaborate with local people you might meet in the BM community who have fabric and fashion ideas/crafty skills. i'll have to start hunting through the thrift stores. ...

We've been wrapped up in two layers of long johns and she was still cold. Wondering if fleece would be warm enough? Any suggestions f...

Help with DIY cold wear

I was thinking of making my own cold wear for the nights. I was wondering if anyone else has made night clothing and can point me towards tips, resources, advice on this. I am new to sewing and this may be an overly ambitious project. But, since I am on a really tight budget this year I was thinking...

Re: Seeking Cheap White Dome Covering Material

Hi, One of the routes our group is considering right now is not having a single cover for the dome instead creating triangles which would fit onto the bolts at each hub and overlap each other. So for our pros and cons are as such: Pro: -look cool -easy to switch out panels if damaged -easy to create...

Re: Seeking Cheap White Dome Covering Material

Another fabric to consider is Dacron (polyester). It is used for sailcloth. It is what SS uses for dome covers. Comes in colors and is fairly rain repellent, making for multi season use, some versions are UV resistant for many year use. @greycoyote, I like the zipper idea! What gauge zipper, how lo...

What do you think of using tarps nailed into the ground with 2x4's angled up to the height of the shade structure. Basically what I see in the picture above but on all 3 sides?

So first thanks for all of the help so far on this. Really trying to keep the price down but everywhere I look it seems I will be spending at least 1000$ on any fabric i buy.

But your best bet would be to create say two walls that you can easily move around. That way you can adjust as the day progresses or you may find some convenient RV neighbors who shade you or provide wind breaks. How did you create walls you could move easily?
