Yep. That's it. In most of UK, there are actually stainless steel dumping ports where you can clean the cassette after dumping. Not bad or smelly if you can do frequent dumps!

I would like that. So far to your knowledge which trailers offer a cassette toilet? This is very helpful. Thanks.

Understood, but the Oliver also has a gray tank. You'd still need to dump via the "stinky slinky" even if you had a cassette toilet, no? Or was the objection that it had tanks at all?

Might as well leave it in your bladder then.

Unfortunately, not many here in US. Barefoot caravans will be brought to the states from UK. I'll need to go back in time to see which of the fiberglass manufacturers have them available. The Nest (now Airstream) was one. In the past few months I've been looking at Class B's and most of them can be modified to have a cassette. They are becoming more popular in that group. I'm finding that the price is too high for me so I'm back to the trailer hunt.

I've attached a photo of a cassette in a Sprinter. Cool!

Basically it is a glorified 5 gallon plastic bucket with a toilet seat and lid.

The Lil Snoozy cassette is actually pretty nice looking but still is basically what you said. I do not like the nose of the Lil Snoozy anyway which was the deal breaker for me.

Not really. The toilet flushes waste into the cassette which is mounted in a separate compartment. It uses water to flush and the bowl has a seal that keeps the cassette compartment isolated from the bowl. Keeps odors out and bowl from smelling bad! In effect, the cassette functions as a small black tank with a different method of dumping.

You mean you don't have to get in line at an overcrowded campground with your engine idling waiting for your turn to finally dump? I would hate that. Composting toilet or cassette is for me.

I'm a proponent but others, not so much. I would prefer to stop at rest stops, port o sans, or home toilets. Easy, peasy! Something to think about when you have nothing else in your head?!?!? Good luck in your search.

Aaah... the Great Toilet Debate!

So far my wife wife has vetoed the concept of any kind of toilet in a small trailer, so it's an academic (but highly entertaining and occasionally informative) conversation to me.

As far as I know, Lil Snoozy in the only molded fiberglass manufacturer offering a cassette toilet option. I believe it was originally in Robert Johans' vision for the Nest trailer, but as far as I know Airstream has not revealed what they plan to offer.

Lines at the dump station... really, a minor issue solved by avoiding peak check-out times, and as already mentioned, what are you going to do about grey water?

Yepper! I agree. I have a few inquiries out to Parkliner and Nest to see if that's an option. The guy in corporate at Parkliner seemed to think it's doable. Robert Johans at Nest offered it back in 2015 but I'm not sure Airstream will be that flexible. Must wait until both have their formal market introductions.

I hear that composting toilets draw flies!!!! Not sure if that's true.

I've never been in a line to dump my tanks. Maybe because I avoid overcrowded campgrounds.

I do not see how an air space can produce less condensation than an insulated space. Condensation results from inside humidity contacting a colder wall. Insulation prevents heat loss better than hollow air space of the same width. So an insulated inner wall will be less affected by outside cold temps than an uninsulated wall. I do not know if the space is wide enough between hulls, but if it were 1.5" and filled with polyurethane (sprayed into place) virtually all condensation would be eliminated.

If air space were so great at stopping heat loss, we would all be able to forego house insulation in favor of massive double-pane windows.
