Porta potty under front bench seat

Here is a couple of pics of the portapotty with moulded base under the front bench I made up. The above bed has been removed as we never use. There is a drain to clean the sand and dirt off your feet. There is a curtain for a little privacy. Need to find more pics.

Where did you get the moulded base?

AWESOME!

You molded the interior of the bench?
(Do you still have the mold?)

That is nice, have been looking at the front couch mods since it's just the DW and myself and that mod would be most welcome.

Combined with the half gallon milk jug hand held shower idea someone posted that would be a great way to cover our boondocking needs.

Thanks
If you look closely, you will notice that the floor is a fiberglass food serving tray, the type they use in cafeteria`s ( ..and prison fights)
I used the potty base itself to create the “socket” for it. Just waxed it up and glassed over it. The rest of the lower base is a lattice of ply that is fit to the floor of the trailer and chopped parts of more of those trays to create some surfaces. Quite a bit of piecing here as well as filling. Some of the curves were created by hot gluing polyethylene to the front and glassing behind it. The upper walls are pcs of .125” ABS cut to shape. Some had to be heated with a hot air gun and formed by hand to shape, then let cool. They are screwed to the lower base and a wood rail on the top. The paint is Klenks epoxy for tubs.
Hope this helps.
If I had to make another, I would use this as a plug and vacuum form them. ..similar to the way they make tubs.

Nice job! I really like this idea. If a mold was available, I would buy it.
I might just have to build this myself I like it so much, Although I do not fiberglass, so mine will be stainless.

Could you do that with the propane tank cover on Joanne T's Trill 5500?
She recently had it listed for sale and is nearby in Ancaster.
