The Outdoor Connection Outhouse is a sturdy and well thought out toilet or shower tent shelter for your campsite.
Its best feature is a “Dryzone” which creates a dry area for clothes behind a zippered plastic sheet whilst showering. Made of sturdy steel and fibreglass poles that create a very strong structure when pegged out in full.
Following on from my initial review. Excellent customer service from Snowys. Fantastic communication. The issue was not Snowys fault but the manufacturer it appears. Will be buying again from Snowys - other suppliers must be envious of their support and service. Five stars for you guys (and girls) !
I purchased this based on glowing testimonials by Snowys and some customers. Firstly, it is ridiculously over complicated. We were heading away this weekend so thought I'd get it out of the bag and set it up as a trial at home. Despite my concerns with the setup and poor design I noticed a number of tears in the lower part of the enclosure - looks like it has either been pre used or damaged by the factory. Actually looks like really old stock that has started to disintegrate. The rest of the enclosure material also seems perished. Very disappointed. Definately not damaged in transit or by me - these look like wear holes and tears or sun damage. Pole system is over complicated. Each corner requires a cover each time you pack it up to supposedly protect the tent fabric. Internal pockets are flimsy. Windows can not be opened from inside and no zips on them. Even the cheap enclosures offer this. So really poor ventilation as a result. Floor should be built in as it does not seal. Going back to a simple enclosure that actually works and isn't old stock.
Thanks for letting us know Waz... this is quite unusual as we only sell brand-new gear. Never do we send second hand nor display stock for online orders. I've got your details so I'll pass this onto our warranties team right away and they'll be in touch to work out a game plan to fix the issue.
Ideal outdoor shower
Put it up at home, not tried it camping but it looks strong and will suit our purposes well, not too obtrusive in the bush.
all equipment was good quality and arrived promptly , thanks
Sturdy shower tent with great features including "dry zone" and waterproof toilet roll holder. A bit fiddly to erect but seems robust. Well worth the price.
Once again Snowys excellent service and another great Outdoor Connection product.
I was wondering if the inside is silver-lined like the OZ-trail? Thx
The Outdoor Connection Outhouse Toilet Shower Tennt doesn't have a silver lining like the Oztrail does, no. It does have its own opaque lining that reduces shadows and heat but it's not quite at the same level as the silver lining. It is slightly brighter inside the tent though because of that.
Is there a video on youtube for this ensuite tent Thanks
We've made a video of setting up the double Outdoor Connection Outhouse Toilet Shower Tent and the concept is pretty much the same for the single. You can check it out here.
How long does it take to setup and are there many pieces?
There aren't too many pieces to the Outdoor Connection Outhouse Toilet Shower Tent and most find the setup process relatively straightforward. I'd say that set up would take around 5-10 minutes once you have the hang of what you need to do.
every shower tent we have had before has had pathetic zips which have not lasted.
I did a bit of a comparison for you, Liz, the zips on these do feel a little sturdier than some of the lighter weight shower tents.
I guess the best feedback we can give you is that we have not had much, if any, negative feedback of any sort on these shelters or any of the Outdoor Connection shelters to that matter. If you're looking for the most reliable shower and toilet tent in our range, then the Outhouse by Outdoor Connection would be my recommendation.
This seems the more expensive in the shower tent range. Would you say it beats the others? I've never had one before, and for the sake of $20 here or there, would prefer to buy the best model available.
G’day Peter, the Outdoor Connection Outhouse Toilet Shower Tent is one of top models in our range in terms of quality and durability. The reason it’s priced higher is because it has a pole structure which makes it more durable in the wind. Other entry level models have a pop up structure which makes them really easy to erect, but a little less sturdy in the wind. The Outdoor Connection also has great features like a plastic covered toilet roll holder and area to keep your clothes dry which make it really user friendly, so it is a good investment if you’re willing to spend a little bit more.
I bought but have not used an outdoor shower stand. Are these shower tents OK to use this inside?
Hi Peter, if you already have a shower stand then you’ll be able to use it inside this tent provided that it fits inside. This tent has a maximum height of 2.1m, so just compare that height against your shower stand to see if it’ll be the right fit for you.
Where we camp there are often flies which are attracted even when using a composting soil style of toilet. Does this product adequately exclude flies?
Hi Bernie, the Outdoor Connection Outhouse Toilet Shower Tent is made from Polyethylene, which is a fairly solid material, and the door zips up completely so there are no gaps there. Like most shower/toilet tents, the floor is not completely attached to the walls to let the water seep out into the ground – so if this gap is propped open there may be enough room for a fly to come in, but that is an unlikely scenario. Basically this tent is reasonably well sealed, but not completely insect proof. Unfortunately flies will always be attracted to toilets, so you just have to do your best to keep at bay.
I need to know if the tent gas ac acces point to put a shower through. Also what height is the access. Can you hang solar shower in tent as an alternative. Is the roof removable
Hi, i was just wondering if this particular shower tent is one of those silly pop up things
