All the aisle shower units are that way. I use an electric, outside with the van side mirror turned out for a mirror. Puts any wiskers outside so no mess to hear about. That is of course if I actually happen to shave while traveling.

If you shave with razor and shaving cream your only choice is that kitchen sink.

I long ago decided to get a good electric razor for on the road. Now I use it all the time. It is faster for me and saves a lot of precious water. After a while you get used to a tiny bit of stubble feel instead of the baby butt smooth feel that you only have for a couple of hours anyway. Then you can progress to the Hollywood full stubble look and then when you retire or just become an old crank you can grow a beard.

Hi gklugie,

I have learned some stuff on a B forum like hot water is Not needed to wash dishes.

The 190P with the efficient aisle shower had me trying an electric for the first time in 30 years. Surprisingly, I liked it for up to 3 days of growth. I also learned that I could have used a blade dripping very little water only. I did not realize that shaving cream is not necessary. What is necessary depending on the person is simply getting the beard fully wet which takes time. In my case, about 3-4 minutes while I use a Sonicare and dental floss.

I tried the no hot water for dishes at home, bingo it worked. Hot want is more pleasant though. Shaving cream for me was nothing but a placebo! I had bought into the commercials. Hey, anyone remember the Joe Montana one?

ymmv

I have not used a blade in over 20 years. I have used a Norelco for many years. I use it every 3 or 4 days. I use it dry. I do not use it in the shower. I do not use shaving cream. Works just fine.

Just use the kitchen sink with water in a mug. I never understood the need for a sink in a class b bathroom takes up too much space and adds more stuff to fix. However I do like the large ARV bathrooms and the Hymer Aktiv design but it's really overkill in my opinion but I am used to backpacking, boats and cabins with no running water. When "camping" (off the ground in a van with fridge, heat, AC, and home theater with surround sound) I don't shave much anyway because my wife likes the Hollywood stubble.

I also do this - keeps the interior cleaner. I also sometimes do it at home in my driveway.

I shave in campground showers when available and just don't shave in between. My year Airstream Interstate did not include a bathroom sink, which for me is fine as the room is on the small side.
