A Texas-based truck driver and inventor has created a shower unit that fits inside the cab of a semi.
The invention comes from Dayton, Texas, resident Joel Reyes, who describes himself as a truck driver, welder, and inventor.
The water for the shower is held in an external holding tank and heated by an electric heater. The tank purportedly holds enough water for one complete shower.
According to a website promoting the shower unit, “There are countless tractor trailer trucks that crisscross our country every day. While these tractor-trailer rigs provide their drivers with some conveniences like sleeping quarters, one item that is typically not available is the luxury of a hot shower. Truck drivers must rely on truck stops, hotels, or other locations with conventional showers. Unfortunately, these facilities are not always available when needed. Drivers may have to go several days without a shower which compromises their hygiene and perhaps even their health as well! As a truck driver himself, Inventor Reyes knows what its like for truck stops to be full or the feeling of being too tired to even seek out a shower. In turn, he was inspired to create the Tractor Trailer Shower Unit!”
