Hi Roy

Do you mean cut a mould and glass or Vac form the cover (nice cover by the way)
Either way the answer is yes.

I doodled up something like it when I first started to "pimp" the Trillium

Nice sketch!

I was thinking mold and glass, that way people could choose a colour or paint to match.l

Loved the insert. I've been contemplating making a walkin space for the porta potti in my Trill 1300 with the gaucho's existing fiberglass top and front cabinet door hinged and swinging up and out of the way (as one piece) for use. It's only been designed in my brain so far but will probably model it with cardboard to see the feasibility. As I now use it, I have a shallow bus tub that the porta potti is in that I slide out through the cabinet door for use. Haven't yet gotten around to the pivoting handle on the bus tub I can use without the need to bend over too far.

So many projects - so little time! Be still my fevered brain.

Thanks bern

I still have a few details to add to this such as a support bar to keep the top open. I originally was thinking a gas strut but now I think I`ll use a simple articulated bar like on a step ladder. What you can`t see is the wall that was created beside the stove for some privacy as well as the curtain on a rail above Used the same shower fittings that were on the Gaucho bed.
I mock up stuff in cardboard all the time. Great way to go. It is how I started with this . The idea in my head was very "origami" but the cardboard version told me I was being "overkill Phil"

If you guys are serious about having an insert for your porta potty (it should be the same model as mine) I can see what I can do about making a few. The more that are interested, the less expensive they can be.

Thanks again

I am interested, Only question I have is, would it work on the curb side of the trailer? I just cant tell if the complete unit is one piece, Or it is an insert that could be spun around and built in on either side, like a drop in bathtub.

Hi Willisworms
Unfortunately, I don`t think so..at least what I have is made to the shape of the Trill floor and wall.I expect your beachcomer shape is "boxyer" and may not fit so good. It gives me the idea that if enough are interested that I could re design it a bit more generic so that it could and flip from right side to left as well as fit more models.
The reason for putting it in the left hand corner was to make use of the cabinet as part of the privacy wall (hard to see in these pics). Also, close to the edge so there was more ceiling room and clear the overhead fiberglass shelf.

If you can send me pics of the front structure with a few nominal dimensions, I could access feasiblity.
Thanks and happy crapping....I mean camping...

That is very impressive! Just one more question. Where does the floor drain go?

Thanks Dave

It has a 90 degree elbow to the outside very close to the frame. This trailer never came with a grey water tank, so I just put a big drain pan under it in areas that require it. I also wrapped a screen around it to keep the insects out.

Very nice work!!

I'd love to put the potty and shower in the same place in my 13' Scamp, but because the floor is 6" higher under the front seats, and with the curved in ceiling I need to shower in between the front seats (I use a plastic tub on the floor, shower curtains from the ceiling.) I redesigning my front seats now, wood, but styled to match the fiberglass moldings, rounded edges, etc. I have a similar porta potty.

Thanks

I would like to see how yours came out. The ceiling is somewhat low in ours as well. I am 5' 8" and my head just clears the ceiling and is up against the shelf while standing...still better than trekking out in a wet ,cold , mosquito infested campground only to find the smelly outdoor toilet is occupied....
