to say you will never stay on a secluded wild camping spot will mean you miss out on some fantastic views in the morning when you wake
We get fantastic views from sites without parking overnight on public land. Lost count of how many beaches Iíve stepped out onto from a site. How many mountains Iíve opened the curtains to see, with no other vehicles in the view. But OP has already said he doesnít want to camp off grid, so we donít need to debate the relative merits.
Iíd agree that a strip wash works fine - less handy for long hair washing, though guys tend to keep their hair shorter.
Iíd just say a toilet is essential. Even if itís just a portapotty is a cupboard or itís disguised as a seat. You only need to be caught short once to really regret not having it. Especially if itís in the middle of the night & pouring rain.
We donít have a heated floor but the blown air goes into the washroom & makes it toasty. A pull out / retractable drying line like they have over hotel baths is useful for drying towels etc.
2021 - 1 site (twice), 6 nights.
2020 - 4 sites, 20 nights / 2019 - 13 sites, 35 nights / 2018 - 20 sites, 33 nights

I have sort of a semi wet room at home, designed by me, in that the shower is a walk-in one with one side without any enclosure.
The space for the shower is 900mm x 1000mm, and is very spacious compared with many shower cubicles that I have used in hotels and B&Bs in the past.
The shower/toilet room will be narrower, only 700mm, however, it will be longer than first planned as the van is longer by about a metre.
At the longer length of 1400mm instead of 900mm, in theory I can have proper shower cubicle. However, it will feel cramp to me at 700mm square.
Hence I prefer to have a wet room instead - it is what I am used to and preferred.
