Porta potty storage

I just got a nice porta potty at an auction sale. I had always thought the Casitas had a storage spot under one of the seats big enough for one. NOT! It won't fit under the side dinette seat or the couch/bunks. It is not a big one either. It is a Thetford 155S. It appears that this model has a 4.5 gallon tank and that might my problem. The storage is built to only hold the smaller capacity tanks.
So the question is. If you have a larger portapotty how do you store it? Has anyone found a useful storage container to use?

....while we do not have posession of a 'sita, we do have a Trillium (13footer) and have stowed the potty in the clothes closette on an adjustable shelve setup from a local 'Big Box Store', Canadian Tire.

I did have to modify the cabinet's fiberglass opening ever so slightly to get the potty inside and make note, it is NOT all that readily accessable in time of need, but it DOES get 'er done!!! LOL.

Put a cushion with attached skirt over it and it becomes a stool.

Ben dare, dun dat, LOL!!!

We have a custom fitted/colour matched cover to place overtop of it when we need to place the potty outside.

We also have 2 similar matched (but these are insulated) covers for two portable coolers (ice-chests) we sometimes pack if we know we will be where there is NO Alec Tricity.....

Mine won't fit under the bed either. It is a little too tall. One thing I am finding out is the storage compartments will only fit the smallest size unit. Never thought of that but not much choice at an auction sale, you get what's there. I noticed on line that someone was making a carry/storage bag for them for a while but they must have gone out of business. I can't find them other than a youtube video. I was a good idea but I guess it didn't sell well enough.

If I had kept the dinette as the bed, mine wouldn't fit either but since we wanted a permanent bed I put a piece of A-C plywood across the top with cleats underneath to stop it from moving back and forth. Gives an extra inch or so. Raz

We have the smallest Dometic purchased from Canadian Tyre. It doesn't fit into or under anything in our Trillium. Mostly it just sits there using up half the available floorspace - but mostly we don't need the floorspace for anything else so it isn't much of a problem. Occasionally it gets carried outside.

That must be an awfully robust sliding shelf!

Doug ...my guess would be that Bobbie Mayer would like to see pictures of the custom fitted/color matched covers that(someone) I think it was you have for the potty and ice chest.

I would like to know how the covers for the ice chest are made.What kind of fabric & insalation was used and Pictures would be Great.

Happy Camping and Thanks
