    Im sure it will be fine.

    Its R3080.00 without the pump, R3600 with the pump. This does not include a gas bottle. It is a really nice setup but a bit over priced in my eyes. Maybe Im just cheap

    I also looked at the bundu shower never saw one in real life.
    Saw a video of one running sounds like a spitfire when running.
    I am also concerned about the heat around the shower.
    Maybe I am wrong like I said only saw video.

    I run a 5.5l gas geyser installed in my canopy, water pump permanently connected. When we want to shower, connect the gas and voila.

    ok, so basically the geyser is installed permanently, connected to a 60l water tank permanently, I have a gravity feed tap for when I don't need to use the geyser.

    When we want to shower/need hot water, I connect the gas bottle, switch on the pump and we're good to go. My canopy carries the tent, so the gas bottle is kept between the jerry cans (two on either side) on the roof. The gas line is long enough so I don't need to take the bottle of the roof.

    My pump is installed on the other side of the canopy hidden away in a cavity. Let me know if you need more info/photos, these are the only ones I have on me now.

    There many of these small camp gas geyser on the market. Some even includes the shower head. All required is a descent pressure pump and gas a bottle, a bit of plumbing, hose and wiring.

    Another option I saw a few weeks ago. I don't know how well it works but think it will work fine. Click image for larger version.

    The geyser is installed as far down as possible, so there is a bigger gap at the top. The canopy is left open while the geyser is in use.

    I can keep my hand "inside" as far above the geyser as what that gap allows, and it does not burn me. The carpet behind and above the geyser does not get warm.

    Saw this on Instagram a while back - very clever, they guy used a TV bracket so geyser can swivel to the outside when in use.

    The Unimog has a 5.5l gas geyser that can be mounted on either side... one for the outside shower and one for hot water needed when cooking etc. Gas sits on the roofrack with piping and connectors to feed both sides.

    Separate 100l water tank with 2x 12v caravan pumps to feed the geyser. Dump into tank. Pack all away into one of the external access bins.

    Seperate 20l JoJo on roofrack for quick spalsh after day in the sun.

    Then inside shower has hot water when plugged into shore via a 22l, 220v geyser fed from a seperate 100l tank pushed via a Shureflo 12v pump. Cubicle can be used for ‘hand wash’ with kettle water in the basin or cold shower if not plugged into shore.

    Planning a re-plumbing to incorporate the gas geyser into the inside shower.

    Well all said... I got a little more space... but 2 outside options and an 1 inside option.
