Looks like an OK trailer. However, I won't buy anything the name of which can not be pronounced...
I think it's always been intended to substitute an 'a' for the '@', so they are Tab and Ta-Da!

Maybe it's

"The Trailer formerly know as T@B"

I had a cassette toilet in a popup. I loved it. More modular, hygienic and convenient IMO.

I looked at the website this morning and told it I would like a Brochure and I just received a phone call from the "Nearest" dealer to me which is about 9 hours or so away.

I told him I was merely looking for the Brochure as I indicated online but evidently they forward all requests to the stealer to try to convert into sales.

After learning the base price is over $16,000 I feel a lot more love for the rig I already have.

He also said they have only produced 1 unit so far so the phots of all the color choices must be virtual.

I am amazed ther are no dealers more local to me especially since I know the factory and Mothership itself is closer than the dealer they gave me to.
Maybe it is worth a trip?

It also turns out that the client I am working for right now has a brother who actually owns THOR Industries who owns Dutchman who owns T@b.

They also own Airstream and several other RV companies.

Maybe there could be a deal in there somewhere?

I tried looking up prices and only saw the Tab at about $15,000 (msrp?), so I suspect a fully loaded Tadada to be $20,000.

Pretty pricy for a 5' 9" ceiling!

I always get a warped sense of bemusement whenever I see people taking their sh*t for a walk, cup of coffee in the other hand, uttering chipper "Morning!" to everyone on the way ...

The Thor name appears on the T@B/T@DA website, as this is one of Thor's many brands. It is distributed and supported by the Dutchmen branch, which is why the page of owners manuals is mostly irrelevant to the T@B and T@DA (it's the Dutchmen collection).

There should be lots of dealers; there are quite a few in B.C. at at least some in Alberta; my guess is that any Dutchmen dealer can carry them if they think there's a market.

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.

The kitchen fixtures are typical of Dometic's newer stuff, which is starting to show up in Class B motorhomes as well. Very slick (especially the ones with integral glass covers).

Mary, I like your idea for a brand name, but I believe they would spell it "Voil@"

Mike, thanks for the mention about the curious hitch; I never stopped to look closely at it on the T@B.
I had no idea it was a control device - I just figured it was a Euro design.
The T@DA, by looking at the pictures, definitely doesn't have it.

And thanks Chester, for the cassette step-by-step. I agree with Herb, I would feel mighty
conspicuous carrying such a thing...I would probably pull it out AT the dump station, empty it and
replace it, so where's the advantage compared to the conventional setup? Do you empty a cassette into a
conventional flush toilet ever? That's the only advantage I would see.

I went to the BIG dealer in town today, who usually has 2-3 T@Bs on hand. Of course there were no
T@DAs, as we now know they're not in full production yet, and they didn't have brochures yet either.

Sept 20th will be three years aboard the Casita and I'm still admiring it every day!
P

Not likely very frequently; however, at a campsite with outhouses (pit toilets, whatever you call the non-flush variety) but no dump site, the portable and cassette toilets certainly have the advantage. Even at a fully equipped campsite, the long-term resident might choose to carry the cassette to the nearest toilet (flush or otherwise) every 5 gallons of "output", rather than breaking camp and hauling the trailer to the dump site every 10 gallons (in the case of my Boler) or whatever.

Actually, yes, you can. Just like your porta potti. It's the same thing, different configuration.

I have yet to run into an objection when dumping my porta potti holding down a flush OR pit toilet, and certainly, never a squeek when dumping in a dump station hole. Same for gray.

Yes, the advantage is you don't have to move the trailer to dump. I see some folks do that, looks like a pain.

But so does going to the public facilities, which is what I have had to do when my tank was full. I wouldn't move it just to dump.

Well, you may hear a squeek or two when emptying into a pit toilet from the resident mouse...

Wow...

All this fuss over cassette toilets...

I'm still happy with my 8-track toilet.


I'll admit I've never figured out what to do with tracks 3-8 though...
