Porta-Potties
The Fiamma Bi-Pot is my loo of choice. They come from europe and are made of two nealy identical 5 gallon containers. Both are easy to carry, dump and fill and it is high enough to feel just like home. We have bought three, two for previous RV's and one for the house for emergencies and occesional sickroom use.
Available from J.C. Whitey and other RV suppliers.
Here's a link to Fiamma's site, scroll down to the dwg for a better idea.

Thetford 555. Good height, yet fits under the bed. As it is no longer made, it is an antique. Vintage....the pot, not the contents. Raz

The princess will only sit on a Thetford thrown.

I bought a Dometic for the Kit a year ago. The seal went bad after a couple tanks, and the "cool" flushing system I bought it for never worked as stated. Its a pump system like in a garden sprayer that is supposed to stay charged for a day, but I could never get it passed 2 flushes without having to pump it up again.

The Leocraft came with an ancient used Thetford 365 that still works flawlessly, seals tight and never spills.

I have had the Thetford 135 for a few years and have never had a problem, I'm sure some other makes are just as good.

Thetford also is very good at providing parts for old models. They make for easy repairs if seals and such ever do go bad.

Thetford 135. It fits under the front. One thing people haven't mentioned is the pour tube that swings out and makes emptying easier. Our old pot did not have this.

Maybe we are the only people who do not fill the water container. We prefer to
use a bottle of water with a small hole in the cap (higher pressure) which can be squirted where I want. Empty every few days and then wipe down with a clorox type wipe.

The 135 is small. We built a throne to bring it up in height a bit. Just a couple of 2x4 and a board. Since I am short the board is used as a foot rest at other times.

Regarding the hassock. I used something similar for a while. Did not like the disposal. If you want something for more than one trip I would look for the Thetford. Whatever you use there will be condensation that forms above the pot after use. That lid will be wet when you open it up after use. With the Thetford type you don't have to put the wet lid anywhere.
