    I have been visiting a lot of truck stop in my area to get an idea of pricing.one thing I see is that virtually every truck stop offers showers but they are pretty expensive ranging between $15 and $20 per shower. Do truckers go days without showers at a time while going over the road. Also how does the point system work so that you can accumulate free showers

    When you fuel 50 gallons (60 at TA/Petro) or more you'll get a shower credit. Just be sure to join their rewards program and swipe the card when you fuel.

    If paying cash I've never seen a $20 shower. Loves, Pilot and Flying J are $12, TA, Petro and Sapp Bro's are $15 and many of the Ma and Pa stops are $10 or less.

    You could go this way, which seems like a lot of trouble to save like 60-70 bucks a week but he is able to clean up at his convenience.

    Our company fuels exclusively with TA and Petro. You accumulate points when you fuel. They have specific shower credits, but you can also use points at add up. If you buy a shower, your co-driver can get a free "team shower". If you're really hard up for one, ask just about any solo driver if you can have their team shower.
    We usually manage a shower every other day driving otr team.
