Thetford 465

Our choice is 465.
It is the tallest one they make, I think.
No more falling to the floor to get on the pot.
No more moaning and groaning to get up.
Swivel spout for easy waste disposal.

Nancy, I do the same thing, but I just use a preloved Arrowhead bottle with the sports top.

Til the dog gets ahold of it.. she LOVES empty water bottles!

This is the one I have for the Compact Jr.
I also plan to build a pull-out drawer for it modeled after the one in the Turtle camper.

I like its height and capacity.

No votes for the Porta-Loo? Basically it's a bucket with a seat. Regular toilet height You can get liners and gel to solidify the contents for disposal. We just didn't want to make those midnight hikes any more now that we're up at night to tinkle more often. Might not want it for more. .. Umm...substantial use. But for our use it seems ok. Very inexpensive too

I have a flushie, but have purchased a generic brand of Wag Bags at Wally World for those times I choose NOT to use the campground facilities... I don't put solids down the black tank and this satisfies that. Trying not to be too descriptive here Maybe it would work the same for those that have porta potties as well.

I was getting discouraged when reading reviews of other toilets on Canadian Tires website but the Thetford reviews from you all sound good. We did a month in NewZeland last year in a campervan as they call it there (motorhome here) and all of the toilets are a similar canister system to the Thetford. I think we have a winner now to determine which height of unit to go with.

Jason,

I think the height depends on where you will store it during non use time.

If I was willing to leave it next to the closet all the time I would love to have a taller unit.

If you still have the front bunk and want to store it under there you may be limited to the 135. That is the only size that I can store away during the day.

Maybe you have done a front dinette mod and have other options, like under a permanent back bed.

We used the taller one on a trip once. I did not like it taking up floor space during the day.

If you don't plan on lots of use look into the wag bag and your hassock idea. Walmart sells a similar bag system. We have tried everything, except the wag bag with our Thetford. I do however have a few adult diaper things I keep buried in storage so I can line the Thetford if we need to do solid job. the wag bag would be much easier....if it will fit in the small bowl.

That "tall" one says it's 16 inches high. YIKES! My bones and joints just don't move like they should...how do you people with mobility problems handle getting down so low? And better yet BACK up?

Heck, I've been thinking of getting one of those SMALL bedside chair/commodes, and leaving it up all the time. Use liners for "business" and keep a nice pillow on top of the "chair" for general seating. Anyone tried that?

Mon, there's not a lot (very little!) aisle space in any of these trailers. I think you'd find you are constantly tripping over the "chair" if you plan on leaving it out all the time. There are options for storage. Check out Joy A's solution

I posted this on another thread, but this is what I use...a Travel John Folding Commode. Has its own carry bag for storage when you're done camping, just like regular camp chairs.
Has a flap that acts as a lid. I use medium kitchen bags and kitty litter or you can use peat moss to absorb any "night time contributions". In the morning, I simply remove the bag, secure it, and walk to the trash with it. No liquid to dispose, container to clean. Fold and stow away until the next night. Easy.

You can find it on Amazon or ebay.

How about a small privacy tent and a Bumper Dumper?
