Best RV Shower Heads in 2021

(Camp Addict does NOT accept payment from any company to review or endorse their products.)

Let's face it, the RV shower head that came with your rig is most likely a piece of junk.

Junk that does a horrible job of providing a good flow of water to get yourself clean.

No, we aren't passionate about this subject at all, lol!

The good news is that the solution to your sucky shower head couldn't be easier.  

You can easily replace your camper shower head to transform your shower experience while on the road.

Below we review RV shower head reviews to find out which is the best choice for your rolling home.

RV Shower Heads 101

RV shower heads are pretty simple devices, but there are a few things you should consider before you purchase one.

Read our Camper Shower Head Guide to learn more, as well as how to stop the dreaded dribble when you 'pause' the water flow.

RV Shower Head Reviews

Do you have to buy an RV-specific shower head?

The answer is yes and no.

Yes, you will want to get one that stops the flow of water, if you ever dry camp.

(When you dry camp, your water supply is limited to the size of your water tank.) 

However, you can alternatively purchase an after-market flow stopper of your own and use it on a regular shower head.

So, no, you don't HAVE to have an RV-specific shower head. Then, what is the best RV shower head?

Below we review several different options, all of which are handheld. Some have flow-stoppers, others do not.

We label ones with a valve 'RV Shower Heads'.

See the video in the guide for information on how to install your flow-stopper valve and, possibly, a check valve.

The truth is, the RV shower head upgrade is one of the easiest and most popular modifications you can make to your new RV.

It is surely well worth the effort and cost.

Best RV Shower Head

Oxygenics Fury Handheld

Oxygenics Fury RV shower head

Pros

  • Mixes air into the line for greater pressure
  • Well known brand among RVers
  • Lifetime warranty against clogging and failure
  • Low GPM (Gallons Per Minute)
  • WaterSense certified
  • 5 spray settings

Cons

  • No glaring negatives

The Oxygenics Fury RV shower head offers one step above the Oxygenics Body Spa shower head in that it offers a wider spray and has adjustable settings.

Our second place pick, the Body Spa, has only one setting and the spray is narrower.

Therefore, being a bit better with options, the Fury is a little more expensive than the Body Spa.

Best RV Shower Head on a Budget

Oxygenics Body Spa

Oxygenics shower head

Pros

  • Uses air to mix in stream for higher pressure
  • Well known as a favorite among RVers
  • Lifetime warranty against clogging and failure
  • Saves water
  • WaterSense certified

Cons

  • One setting

The Oxygenics Body Spa shower kit is probably the most well-known of the RVing showerheads. 

This Oxygenics RV shower head is reasonably priced, offers a strong water stream, and is miles better than the typical piece of junk shower head that is standard on most RVs.

Best Non-RV Shower Head (no low-flow valve)

Niagara Earth Massage Handheld

Niagra camper shower head

Pros

  • Low Flow- 1.5 gallons per minute & WaterSense certified
  • Excellent reviews online
  • Inexpensive
  • 72" tangle-free hose
  • 10-year warranty
  • Adjustable settings

Cons

  • No low-flow valve (can buy after market shut-off valve)

The Niagara Earth handheld massager is not an 'RV ready' model but it is such a good shower head we had to include it as an option.

You can purchase an aftermarket flow-stopper to conserve water.

Read this section of the camper shower head guide for more details on doing so.

Runner Up Non -RV Shower Head (no low-flow valve)

Ecocamel Jetstorm

Ecocamel RV shower head

Pros

  • Adjustable settings
  • Uses air in the stream (like Oxygenics) to increase water pressure
  • Wide spray pattern
  • Proven product overseas
  • 2 gallon per minute flow rate

Cons

  • Low-flow valve and RV shower hose sold separately
  • Price
  • Only a 60-day guarantee

The Ecocamel Jetstorm has been an RV staple on the other side of the pond for a good while now. They are now available in the United States.

This model works much like the Oxygenics brand in that it infuses air into the stream. As a result, it produces a stronger spray using less water.

Conclusion

You don't have to get a showerhead that is MADE SPECIFICALLY for RVs. Instead, you can get any showerhead (low flow GPM is best) and install it if you would like. 

You can stop the water flow to help conserve water by installing the flow stopper valve shown on this page. 

If you are ALWAYS connected to a water source and a sewer drain, the low flow may not matter to you. 

You can simply buy any showerhead you would like. ANY upgrade is good from the regular shower heads installed in RVs off the lot. 

If you have any questions, please read through the comments to make sure your question has not been answered. If it hasn't, pop yours in the comments!

We do try to answer all the good/relevant questions that our readers have. The purpose of this website is to help our fellow RVers!

Camp on, Addicts!

He-llllo. I'm the co-founder of Camp Addict, which my biz partner and I launched in 2017. I frigging love the RVing lifestyle but in December of 2020, I converted to part-time RV life. Heck, I lived in my travel trailer for over 5.5 years, STRICTLY boondocking for pretty much all of it. Boondocking is a GREAT way to live, but it's not easy. Anyway, I'm passionate about animals, can't stand campgrounds, I hardly ever cook, and I love a good dance party. Currently, I can be found plotting and scheming whether or not to start collecting farm animals (or plotting my next RV trip!) at my beautiful new 'ranch' named 'Hotel Kellyfornia', in Southern Arizona.

    • Hi Lynn,

      There is not different recommendation for an RV shower head when you are using a tankless water heater. The tankless heater doesn’t affect the flow of water to the shower head. It only has a bearing on how long you can shower before you run out (or don’t) of hot water.

      Enjoy your new shower head, whichever one you decide to go with!

      • OK, thanks. One last question though – as tankless heaters work on demand, I assume you really can’t use the shut off option on the shower head or there will be no demand for hot water so will have to wait every time you use that option – is that not correct?

        • I’m not absolutely certain how they work with the shut off valves as I don’t have one and I don’t have any friends with one. But, in theory, the on demand hot water heater should just stop heating the water when you use the shut-off valve (pause the water flow) and then start heating the water again when the water flow resumes.

          The water in the hot water line between the heater and the shower head won’t have time to cool off (any more than using a ‘normal’ water heater) as long as you aren’t pausing your shower for 10 minutes at a time. 😉

          • Understood – and thanks! I know the “trickle” shut off seems to cause a little grief in the on demand (due to required flow) so think we will install a proper shut off and see how that goes. Thanks for the advice!

          • Oh, I never considered what the trickle would do to the on demand heaters. Interesting, but totally understandable. And it’s funny that RV Manufacturers would install a on demand hot water heater and then turn around and install a trickle shut-off valve. Things that make you go hmmmm…

            Please let us know how the proper shut-off valve works with your water heater!

  • There is an adapter that allows you to connect a garden hose to a shower.

    After doing this could you connect a garden hose, and utilize as a outdoor shower?

    • Hi William,

      I assume the RV in question doesn’t already come equipped with an outdoor shower? Most modern RVs do.

      I am not familiar with the adapter that you speak of. If there is an adapter that allows you to connect a garden hose to an RV shower, then nothing would be stopping you from running said hose out the door and using it outside.

      Or you could use one of the many stand-alone outdoor shower products available on the market and accomplish the same thing.

  • Does anyone know if the Oxygenics Fury has the same GPM rating for each of its spray settings, or does the GPM change depending on the setting being used? Thanks!

    • Hi Linnea,

      While we haven’t tested the Fury on all settings, I’m guessing that there may be a slight variation between them. However, for planning purposes, I’d assume pretty close to the max flow rate given by the manufacturer for all settings, as it’s doubtful you’d be able to tell any difference in real life between the settings.
