Perfect for your lorry, camping, or when you need your Hippo Shower to be able to be hung up.

The boiler is the same as used in the other showers, but the frame is smaller/more compact.

All of our trolleys are made by hand in sleepy Lincolnshire. The boilers are imported from Germany (we couldn’t find a suitable UK boiler manufacturer) and each one is checked thoroughly before it leaves us. They’re run for a minimum of half an hour, and we make sure it all works before it leaves.
The making of the frames is a very consuming process… the metal is bent and welded and then loaded into the back of Boris the van, where they’re taken to the nice powder coater down the road, who makes them look pretty.
Powder coating has to be done in batches, so we have to wait for a batch of the same colour ones to build up to get them all done at once. This can delay things slightly if you go for an unusual colour.
Then the prettier frames come back (in Boris) and have their hinges, doors ect. tested and aligned. The boilers are tested, and assembled and then the children in the family stick the stickers on. Couriers are then booked and the showers are wrapped.
So, all of this work means that your shower isn’t going to arrive immediately. We pride ourselves on our showers being handmade (we’ve been repeatedly approached by factories offering to make them at discount price) – which means the shower can take approx. 14 working days to build, check and wrap. So be patient, it’ll be worth the wait.
