where does the porta potty go?

We are gearing up to buy a (new) Scamp 13, the standard w/out bathroom package. For those who have this or similar set up, and use a porta potty, where do you put it? Do you have to modify a cabinet, and if so, which one and how?

thanks!!

Kay in CA

Porta-potty storage in Scamp

The center cabinet under the front gaucho/bunks was designed for a porta-potty and it has a door to keep it out of sight. The floor is flush with the rest of the kitchen area so it will slide in and out. You can see the door in picture #6 in my registry.

EDIT - Just checked - the space is 19.5" wide by 13" high by 19.5" deep.

I left mine behind the cabin when I sold it.

Trilliums have a porta potty garage just beside the entry door, under the gaucho. Only the smallest ones will fit.

A Thetford 135 fits under the front bunk of our 04 Scamp. I don't know if the newer Scamps have a higher bench. I prefer the Thetford over some brands, some do not have the pour spout for emptying.

It is snowing here today so I won't go out to measure how much clearance we have. My Thetford 135 is in the house and is a bit taller than 12 inches. there isn't a lot of space above it when I slide it in and out of the cupboard.

The snow is really quite pretty. Too bad we are all fed up with snow!

Last week I purchased a used porta potty on kijiji for $15, for my sons trailer Launch Pad. It has a removable pour spout, and fits under the gaucho garage. I can't tell what the manufacturer is.

We have had 3 different brands of porta potty.
We prefer the Thetford.
We bought the taller version and it fits in the space under the closet.

We removed the old rusty fridge which opened up a lot of room under the countertop to store our porta-potty. I also mirrored the door which reflects some nice light. I bought the potty through JC Whitney a few years ago, and it came in handy last weekend when it was too cold and scarey to hike in the dark to the camp restroom, especially after the ranger had warned us about rattlesnakes!
