This topic came up in another post and Leve wondered if anyone had fabbed up one at home, and would post the info. This is something I've wanted to make for a couple of years for my jeepwife (since it's a requirement to have a shower at the campsite), but never knew how. I'm sure someone could figure it out, though.check this out-http://www.hotcampshowers.com/new1851.html
Anyone have any ideas?

I guess you need to have a onboard heater #1, Next a fitting to the in for the heater system after it passes through the system you would need a pump on the out end of the heating system.. pumping thru a heat exchanger ( Something with a theromstat I would guess) Then some sort of a shower head... You wouldn't need much more than garden hose, shower head, desired pump, fittings... shouldn't be two hard.. also you could adjust the temp by the settings from inside the vehicle? Does that sound right?
Get a factory installed A/C radiator that has the exchanger in the radiator. Instead of running the A/C stuff through, run a hose to one end and another to the other end attached to a pump (or you could use gravity feed with a big bag). There you go!
How about just running some copper or hi heat tubing around the upper radiator hose put a "y" fitting on one end that you connect to a pump. One hose will run from the pump to the y and then split. One of the hoses goes around the radiator hose and the other is a bypass hose. After the radiator hose splice the two hoses together with a "y" type of valve that will allow you to mix water between the two into one. Then just run a line and head off of the valve. Back to the pump end, just run a siphon hose to a water source. I think this could be done pretty easily and if you use some type of quick connect fittings could be removed/installed easily. For the electrical on the pump you could just use clips to hook to the battery and a switch lead like a winch.
