A great idea but sadly has not worked well at all. Yakima tried to send us some new parts but they didn’t last. Basically it is full of water and will work for a couple quick showers (we use it after surfing) and then it just blows out air even though it still has plenty of water in the tank. Hoping we can get one that works at some point and still talking to Yakima (a year later) to try and get new replacement parts.



by:

This tank is amazing and lots of water to clean of mud/sand. Had some shipping issues due to the distance traveled for the package. I would recommend that Yakima add one extra bolt/washer/nut combo of each size. Our package didn't come with all appropriate hardware. Also, if you decide on the 10' long tank, the hose is a bit short to be completely contained by the Velcro at the sprayer end.

I should have purchased this a long time ago. The Yakima Road shower comes in very useful when I need to wash off my dirty dog because he decided to roll around in the dirt on road trips. This will also be great when I need to wash off during camping trips. Installation was very simple but keep in mind you will need to purchase teflon tape to prevent water leaks from the hose fittings. Although you can remove it and transfer to another vehicle, this one will stay mounted on top of my Jeep. I like it so much I want to purchase another one for my truck! Directions say that you have to remove the road shower in order to drain the tank when not in use, well I came up with a solution so that I don’t have to remove the system. All you need is a long enough hose and you can siphon the water that’s left over after draining. The only request I would suggest is that this unit was lead free so that I can use it as a drinking water source. Overall this thing is amazing and fits our needs!



by:

Awesome product. Use it for everything.
Great
to be able to reach up and grab a water hose for whatever. Wash off dishes, wash hands, spray mud from shoes, spray dust and dirt from my off road trailer it is attached to before opening and using it....and of course take that hot shower :-)



by:

it was leaking in the beginning but switched out the rubber seal and tightened down lil tighter and looks like it resolved issue but on the plus it came with locks which i didn’t think it did so this was a plus



by:

Spray nozzle was bent at end that connects to hose. Schrader valve was bent and cracked need to get replacements.



by:

Use plumbers tape on the fittings. In sunny weather, it performs as advertised.



by:

Fantastic just fantastic



by:

Game changer, I do a lot of camping and the RoadShower works! Fit perfectly on my 2019 Sienna minivan camper conversion, installed in 60 minutes.

  • How To Fill The Yakima RoadShower Portable Solar Shower # Y79VR with Water
    There are 2 ways to fill the Yakima RoadShower Portable Solar Shower # Y79VR with water. If you have a pressurized water source you can use the included quick connect to attach a hose allowing you to fill the tank from the same port you attach the water sprayer hose. You can also remove the check valve/cap from the top the unit to be able to fill the tank. This is the preferred route to use if you do not have a pressurized water source. As it is on top of the tank it may be difficult to...

  • Will the Yakima RoadShower Fit on Subaru Factory Crossbars on 2021 Outback Wagon
    Yes. You can mount the Yakima RoadShower Portable Solar Shower for Roof Racks - 4 Gallon # Y79VR to the factory crossbars on your 2021 Subaru Outback. The RoadShower tank is 6-1/8" wide, so you'll need roughly that much bar space inside the raised side rails in order to mount this unit.

  • Does Yakima RoadShower Fit Angry Elephant Rack System
    Yes, it sure does; the Yakima RoadShower will indeed fit the 3" x 1-1/2" crossbars of your Angry Elephant rack system. There are three different sizes to choose from, and all of them will fit your rack system: - 4 Gallon: Yakima RoadShower Portable Solar Shower # Y79VR - 7 Gallon: Yakima RoadShower Portable Solar Shower # Y89VR - 10 Gallon: Yakima RoadShower Portable Solar Shower # Y29VR The RoadShower has brackets on the bottom that slide to fit different crossbar spreads, and will...

  • Availability of Used Yakima RoadShower Portable Solar Shower for Roof Racks
    We carry 3 options for the Yakima RoadShower. We have the 4 Gallon # Y79VR, the 7 Gallon # Y89VR, and the 10 Gallon # Y29VR. There are times we have a "used" item that has either been cosmetically damaged in shipping or has been used for one of our videos. When that is the case it is listed on the main product page stating there is a used item available and there is a link to photos and specific price for that "used" unit. The discounted items normally don't last long on our site.

  • Various Sizes Of The Yakima RoadShower Portable Solar Shower For Roof Racks
    The Yakima RoadShower Portable Solar Shower for Roof Racks - 10 Gallon # Y29VR is the current 10 gallon road shower that Yakima offers and it is considered the Yakima RoadShower 10G. It is also available in 4 gallon # Y79VR and 7 gallon # Y89VR. These portable solar showers can be installed onto round, square, aero, elliptical, and most factory crossbars with a crossbar spread of 24" - 50", however, the 10 gallon shower requires a crossbar spread of 32"-80". The tank absorbs the sunlight...

  • Difference of Font Color on Yakima Roadshower Portable Shower
    The color difference between the Yakima Roadshowers is related to the size but does not signify really anything else. The 4 gallon # Y04104 and # Y79VR has white writing and the 7 gallon # Y89VR and 10 gallon # Y29VR has blue writing.

  • Can The Yakima RoadShower Portable Solar Shower Attach To The Pioneer Platform Rack
    Yes, The Yakima RoadShower Portable Solar Shower # Y79VR can attach to your Pioneer Platform Rack but you will need to install The Load Bar Adapter # RR43137B onto the Pioneer platform so the shower has something to attach to. I also recommend The FlexHead Shower Head # Y04104 which will give you hands-free showering with the positionable shower head. I attached a review video link below.

  • Do I Need Wider Crossbars for Accessories and a Roof Top Tent on a Yakima Ladder Rack?
    I highly recommend using the 68" crossbar version of the Yakima Overhaul Ladder rack item # Y01151-58 with a iKamper Skycamp 3.0 Mini Roof Top Tent. The dimensions of that tent are 55.1 x 57.5 x 13.0" which will not give you enough room on either side for the 10 Gallon Yakima RoadShower item # Y29VR. We also have 7 Gallon item # Y89VR and a 4 Gallon item # Y79VR option. I recommend using the FlexHead Shower Head item # Y04104 so you don't have to shower with a garden hose attachment....

  • Can Road Shower be Mounted Across Roof Rails of 2020 Subaru Forester
    The Yakima RoadShower # Y79VR should not be mounted across the roof rails of your 2020 Subaru Forester. Manufacturer roof rails aren't designed to carry the brunt of loads the way roof racks are, and it would be very difficult to use the RoadShower with it oriented that way. So you will need a roof rack for your 2020 Subaru Forester: - Yakima JetStream Crossbars # Y00425 (Black) - TimberLine Towers for Yakima Crossbars # Y33TR - Same Key System Lock Cores (Optional) # Y07204 This will...
