Truma Corp. has released a video on a recent campground field study it performed sampling the overall opinion of RVers on showers taken while in a recreational vehicle.
The study found a few people in the Elkhart, Indiana area who were willing to take a shower in an RV and report their satisfaction with the Truma AquaGo instant water heater.
“We want to be in the campgrounds and help people experience the at-home feeling of taking a substantial shower, where an even flow of hot water can be set and maintained at each person’s comfort level and for as long as they want,” Truma President and CEO Gerhard Hundsberger says.
