With a porta-potty you can either dump it at a RV dump station or in the toilet at home.

If it was me, and it was mainly the night time trips, I would just get a Luggable Loo. With it you can use bags and kitty litter. Seal the bags tightly and dispose in the trash. Look up Wag bags etc.

Here's our version of a luggable loo. Bob made this seat, with closing lid and rounded edges for more comfortable sitting :lol: I had him put a gloss finish on it, it can be wiped down with a sanitation cloth and there's no chance of splinters! :lol: The bucket is a taller one, 18 inches high and we plan on using the trash bag/pine litter combo with it. It will only be used for the occasional night time or stormy weather "P" break, neither of us has trouble waiting and getting to the bathrooms for "the other". We'll keep it in the changing/loo room I'm going to sew up (I"ll post pictures when done) and we'll transport it in the bed of the truck (instead of the TD).

+1 for the Luggable Loo and also the Reliance Double Doodie bags*. That's the easiest. You can purchase the bags at Walmart or just about any camping store and they are a double bag, thus the name...Less worry of something escaping. If I remember correctly, they are made to be biodegradable. It is legal to toss them in the trash. Toss the used one in the trash each morning and make the kids use the camp facilities during the day.

Oh! And, thanks for the reminder. I need to get a supply for the camping season!

PS: You're right...This one gets brought up at least once a year by a newbie. But, one of these years, something new will have developed and we'll all learn something else! :lol:

*Correction: Walmart sells Ozark Trail Toilet Waste Bags. They seem to work just as well as the Reliance ones.

I still have not convinced my wife on the luggable yet, but for the price can't go wrong, and ease of maintenance. This is quite the thread, I spent an hour reading it today. The person who started it 3 years ago never posted again, I wonder if they know what they started!

I have a simple out building/tent and lugable loo and my wife loves it for bathroom break in the evening. It is just a step outside of the trailer so it is close.

My two cents anyway...

My husband thinks we don't need one, I am being ridiculous, & should simply walk to the nearest facility. (We will be at a State Park, & they will be available) HOWEVER, He's a man, & with 6 & 10 year old daughters, I'M getting a potty :thumbsup:

Good for you! If he bellyaches about it, you can always tell him that he will have to be the one to take the girls (and you!) to the park facilities in the middle of the night. :lol:

+ 1

Mike bought a porta potty years ago so we could take our girls to the lake. Their children are now happy to have near facilities that are not public.

Nosnikta, not to cause any issues but.......the husband is wrong. It is very important to have a loo nearby, especially with children. I think I have posted on this before. We got one of those popup tents from Bass Pro (38 dollars), like the window shade covers that pops up and you fold it back up in a big circle. I have a big bucket that the cat litter comes in (square with a lid). I double bag it with cat litter in the bottom. It works very well and it light weight. I only use it at night and the ladies room during the day. A man can use a tree most times at night and we can't, can we? Good luck.

I watched a youtube video clip on the "p-mate" and when she said "You can even write your name in the snow.", I thought "Now, why isn't that on my bucket list?" I am studying the devices that allow you to "pee like a guy" so I'll be ready next year when the snow flies.

No clean up with your porta potti using this: Wag Bags A little pricey but worth it. I build my wag bags up by adding a little kitty litter to the poo gel already in it. Works great. Zip it closed and "legally" toss it in the trash bin. No mess.

Scott is right! We use Wag Bags in our tent camper! Works great.

I've tried it recently on camping trips and the ziplocks leak - they sure aren't as good as they used to be. I'm going to check out the portable potties at REI soon, but wonder if they are worth the hassle. Thanks.

Potty Double bag:

Ready for use:

In the morning, roll the inner bag down and zip the outer bag closed before discarding:

Image

Keep some folded bags in the bottom, under the opened bag:

Ever since a practical joker slit one of my double bags, I line the bottom with a paper towel and also lay one on top, so that when I change the bags, I can see that all is dry. (The “slit” joke only happened once.) :

Image

You’ve heard of a “Tea” party? Well, I had another kind of party that night. I sat on the floor, laughing about it.
These came in very handy then, as well as for other uses after that:

PS. I'm going to post this in the "Going Pee in the Middle of the Night" thread, so the Newbies can find it easily.

My dad was an avid camper. He always brought a shovel and told me to dig a hole, use the hole to go to the bathroom and then cover it up with dirt as you go when you are done and ready to leave, cover it completely with dirt.. Simple as that.
One of the reasons I did not get a larger camper is because I did not want to travel with a sewer system with me.

At night I have a pee coffee can. I get about twice every night and if I have anyone in my camper with me they have to suffer with me getting up so much.
I try to limit my liquids but something happens to me when I lay down and get relaxed.

Odd how our bodies do weird things as we age..
Love and kindness are very powerful.
