Quick Pitch En-Suite Shower / Toilet / Privacy Curtain
When I first saw the Drifta en-suite roof rack mount privacy curtain I fell in love with the idea. The problem was it was only available in South Africa or Australia but I kept checking. Eventually I learned on Expedition Portal that the same product called the Quick Pitch En-Suite (by Quick Pitch) was available in the US and immediately purchased the soft zipper cover version. It also comes in a hard aluminum box version but my mounting to a vehicle roof rack the soft cover seems much more compact.I bought mine from Overlandwa but that site no longer exists and they can currently be purchased in the US in both hard and soft covers from BackwoodsOverland.com. When I ordered mine the picture shows the version with the South Africa map, which I was hoping to get, but instead I got the Australian version.
Note: I also have a Nemo Heliopolis privacy tent that is discussed and shown in the Wizard of Poo post.
I mounted mine to a FrontRunner rack. First I installed T slot rail from woodworkers supply using the existing mounting holes in the metal bracket. I found 90 degree shelf brackets from Ace Hardware that perfectly aligned with the T slot. I left the full height to raise the bottom of the Quick Pitch above the roof rack. I cut the side that attached to the roof rack shorter to only use two of the holes. Note: before I had a FrontRunner rack, I mounted it to the side rail of my factory rack using modified angle brackets and U bolts.
I made a storage bag to hold shower toiletries and clean clothes. The front section drapes over the curtain on the inside and has drainage holes and is meant to hold soap and shampoo. The rear section is bigger and stays behind the curtain to hold clean clothes and not get wet. The rear pouch also has drainage holes just in cause water gets inside. It is clipped to two stainless steel eye bolts using two carabiners. I use a CGear Sandfree mat personal size as the floor. It drains water and keeps the dirt from splashing up. I keep a bamboo shower platform in my truck that is placed on top of the ground mat. Both the shower bag and ground mat rollup and are store inside the Quick Pitch En-Suite zipper cover.
