Hi there Bagwon,

Well my family brought me a luggable loo from BCF I think about $50.00 last year.......Great things they are comfortable fantastic height, I felt like a queen on her very own throne. :-)

Although it is only used for #1 if #2 is required then it is a shovel job.......

I'm still trying to convince my husband a porta potti would be a much better idea, but sadly to date no luck.

I did a search here on toilets/pota potties and spent a couple of hours laughing so hard until it brought tears to my eye's

Best of luck

Andrea

the best thing you can do is just go and buy one, either for you or as a present for a family member. made a hell of a difference to the wife and i when camping and caravanning. and i figure after being together for 34 years there's not much i haven't seen.

Buy him one for his birthday, or any other excuse Andrea!
Not that expensive and make sure you make your own chemicals, they work a treat.

Cheers Pesty

Go to a camping store, and get Jimmy's thunderbox,,

We take a small bucket of lime, and sprinkle 2 tablespoons on every deposit,, this aids in keeping the smells down..

Have a look at thread 54573. Covers the topic pretty fully.

My Wife loves the Porta Potti that lives inside the Camper Trailer so that she can have a twinkle in the middle of the night.

Easy to empty, no stink. 20 years old and still going strong.

Works for us.

Jim.

After 10 years of caravan travel, and with a never used porta-potti stored in the van, I am well qualified to answer this. During the daytime, go behind a bush or in public facilities in towns. But NEVER leave tissues or used paper behind you in the bush - this is major environmental vandalism! At night, use a bucket. When necessary, dig hole, burn used toilet paper in hole, then bury all remains. If your sensitivities are too delicate to cope with the above, then you should not be out in the bush and should stick to the bitumen, public loos and commercial caravan parks.

Its interesting that you think your way of doing things is the way to go and others should stick to the bitumen.. I believe that digging holes is not the best way to go and porta potties that are emptied at proper dump facilities is the best option if possible.. But thats only my view only, i wouldnt be telling people to keep out of the bush if they didnt take my view!! Michael

Well said Wendy, totally agree. Not too many dump points in the Simpson.

Sorry, but we have a problem understanding the use of a bucket, when you are carrying a porta potti, that you have never used!
Why wouldnt you use the PP and empty that next morning?
They both require water to clean/flush, and the PP is 100% more comfortable on the butt, not to mention the better smell, and the less chance of knocking it over.
Because the PP has additives in it, there is no paper to blow around as all contents are reduced to liquid, so a decent hole dug for emptying when there is no dump point is as good or even better than a hole dug for a thunder box or one off jobby.
On chemicals too, we now make our own and is the best we have ever used, not to mention the lower cost.

Cheers Pesty

Pesty,

Making sense, as you did, won't always be well received.

Fair Dinkhum, using a shovel to have a Bog??

Perhaps we should all trade in our cars on horses so that we can really call ourselves GENUINE travellers.

Silly stuff wendys.

Jim.
