Heating water for a dip shower for camping or USA road trip- Showers And Baths

I am going on a Road Trip of the USA, I will drive from city to city and want to shower in primitive camp areas of State Parks. I know that hanging solar shower units are for the most part a joke, they do not work. But, a dip shower works good, but how do I heat wateron my USA Road Trip when living in a van? I need from 1-2 gallons of water and can go as low as two liters.
I purchased a 12 quart stainless steel pot at Dollar General for 10 USD. I filled it up about 3/4 for approximately two gallons.
I want to know how long will I need to heat this on a Propane Camp Stove before the water is read for a dip shower?
It took 10-15 minutes.
I believe I will buy a 50 USD pop up shower Tent, I am not sure which one to purchase, but the one at the bottom on Amazon.com feels to be the best so far.
Warning: Do not use solar bag showers, they do not work, take a dip shower.
