this cassette toilet looks like a win-win .......well, except to this lady...

Yes, it was funny. Since I have never dealt with a cassette jon, I wonder how true-to-life it really is? Folks here with experience seem to think they are not so bad.

Hmmm...

I just love YouTube! The variety of videos on that site never ceases to amaze me! Not the best endorsement for the cassette toilets though.

or you could bypass all that and use the grey water drain hose. Then put the cassette back, turn around and dump the grey water tank.

Looks like a lot more bother than pulling open the black water valve, then the grey water valve, which I have to do anyway; (on our camper both tanks feed through a "Y" to a common outlet).

yeah that's true, but to me it only appears to be a matter of one minute or two out of a camping weekend. Some folks take the time to mess with blue totes and some don't. popup truck camper folks love the cassette at the rv.net forum.

I wonder if the Lil Snoozy will have a rock guard on the lower front?

Re: solids ... I have yet to use my black water tank but have been reading and watching (youtube) to learn how to better deal with this part of camping! didn't see it mentioned here among all of the good advice, but somewhere i read a fantastic tip for helping the cleaning process. this is from memory so it might not be spot on ... one camper, at the end of his trip, would after dumping the tank, throw the leftover ice from his cooler into the black tank. its water but in solid form and would really help to gently scrub the tank walls. then down the road he would stop again and dump one again to leave his tank really clean. an extra step, but seems it might leave you with a cleaner tank. i plan to give it try on our next outing ... suppose it would even be worth buying bag of ice if it means you can skip the dragging of a hose inside and filling up, etc.

Melissa - since you like Firefly how about naming it "Serenity" ???

Serenity! I LOVE IT, PAUL!!!! For those who are not firefly fans it is a perfect name and those who know the show will smile. It's perfect! Here is the official definition of Serenity:

se·ren·i·ty/səˈrenitē/Noun
1. The state of being calm, peaceful, and untroubled: "an oasis of serenity".

Hi: All...I don't mean to hijack the thread...But on the subject of trailer "Flushing" DO NOT... I REPEAT...Do NOT pull the black water valve with just a 5gal. pail under the opened drain!!! It's darn near impossible to leap backwards from a crouched down position. Don't ask me how I know this to be true...but it is!!! I'll just say that when Flying J started to chg. ten bucks I got cheap and tried a home remedy.

Thank you Reace,
Coming from a man of your experience, I am deeply grateful! You build a beautiful camper, unfortunately I have never seen one in person. From what I have read, from your website and other people, your RV's are well designed and are built to a much higher standard than the majority of others. In the last few months I have realized just how difficult that really is.
You are right about this forum, the members on here have an amazing knowledge base and are not afraid to voice their opinions. One of the best parts about this forum is how it is more like a family than any other I have seen. People look out for one another, and that's what we all need to do in this old world.
My father and I have been tinkering with an idea for some time now. It seems that the fiberglass community is a close "family". We are member's of an elite group of RV'ers that actually care about having a good quality rig. Not a riveted, tin sided, coke can with a bed. As a result of the small community, it seems that locating a repair facility (especially one capable of fiberglass work) could be difficult. The idea we have been throwing around is an alliance of sorts. If Escape has a customer in (or travailing though) this area and they have an issue, we would be more than willing to do the repair work. We would also extent that same offer to Casita, Scamp, and other fiberglass owners. Granted we are competitors, but the name of the game here is to enjoy camping and keep our customers happy right?
Thank you again Reace!

Interesting point a truck camper forum guy mentions I have not thought about,

"I like the cassette. I like it because I can winterize the rest of the camper, but use the toilet in warm comfort while hunting or ski/ camping in the winter. I think this is the biggest advantage."

Does anyone know if the frame is steel or ALU? I read it was Galvanized but must have overlooked the material, thanks in advance.
