I think I paid all of $5 for the sprayer /nozzle and the small section of hose. Amazing how useful this has been and I have brought it with me on all of my trips past three years. it's come in handy every single trip! In particular my last trip I used a campsite in Nebraska. Paid $50 for the campsite which is the most I've ever paid. They had the nerve to charge you to take a shower in the showers. That was easily solved by hooking this up to the hydrant at the campsite... and Wallah free shower. Also came in handy on this trip as at the end of the day my windshield in front of the bike would be covered in bugs.

just stumbled across your post .... a great idea that takes up no space ..... so a question would be what is an ideal length ?

Takes up no space ? Well let us know about space after you start hauling the hose and sprayer around on your motorcycle, he must have bought it at a garage sale because I highly doubt you will find a hose and sprayer in any store for only $5

Guestimating length from the picture, I'd say about 5' for the hose. Which likely means home made from a donor hose and two replacement ends, or from a camping supply shop. And I know that the nozzle is $0.99 at Dollar General.

Got the sprayer for $1.88USD and the hose section for 3.00USD both from Walmart... The hose section measures 6 ft. and they sell it like that. But yes easy to make one. If one really wanted to save space, then they could use other tubing and using an adapter.

$50 for a campsite and you still must pay to shower? Highway robbery! Might as well just motel it instead, you would probably save money and get free breakfast and coffee to boot.
