Hi guys. Was out mooching for some essential items to add to our camping kit. Was really keen on getting a pop up pooper. However when seeing it in the flesh (and having a test sit on it) my knees were not happy about how low it was. "Arthur" is now an unwanted companion to our travels. Does anyone have an easy stable way of raising it up? Dont really want a chemical toilet as dont have the room. Liked the idea of the "p u p". Any ideas? Thanks doc.

Hi doc

I am sure that it was on this site that someone posted a picture and description of a toilet platform.

Basically it was mad out of two pieces of ply that had been notched out to form a cross piece for the toilet to sit on. Height adjusted by the width of the boards.

Hopefully it will spark someone's memory.

Cheers

Hi Doc,
Aldi had them a few months ago. I think I have seen similar in Bunnings. They are an excellent little step and have multiple uses.
Cheers,
Val.

Bunnings or any camping shop - get one with the non slip top. Makes the pop up a perfect height

We use the pop-up and have a folding step but hadn't thought to use them together.
That's a brilliant idea!,
Thanks Scott

Funny, I found my p.u.p at a Camping store (Kelly's I think) and my first reaction was "great bit of kit but it needs to come up about a foot" - turned around, scratched my arse, and about 6 feet away was one of the fold up steps. Pulled it out, sat the pop up on it .... worked a treat.

If you cant find the step at bunnings supa cheap have them but best to buy online as they run out of the shops as soon as they come in.

Glad you specified the setup procedure. when I first looked at the picture of the "stool" (hehehe) and considered the size and locations of the holes I figured your backing up ability must be much better than mine.

LOL.

Cheers
