Chris, I found one at a yard sale for $10. Might also check Craigs List, just a thought.

Duh... is the U-Haul Porta-Potty significantly different from generic brands?

If Not: Craigs list: RV>>> enter "Parts"

No not really. But it would be the correct one for my trailer. I'll take what I can find for now but will keep looking for the "correct" unit.

Is Uhaul giving you a reward for sticking to original parts?

I have the original Porta Potti in mine. It is a Thetford #145. Find an old one of these, add a UHaul sticker and you are good to go.

Cindy, no reward but I would like to keep it close as possible. Tom I think I can find a sticker or two here or there. Thanks for the model #. I'll be on the look out for that. Got to looking around and the Coleman don't look too bad to me.

Bought a Thetford Campa Potti XG. It is taller but seeing the mods Fred has done to put one into the front seat, I will raise the front seat 2 inches to get it to fit in the original location.

We have platforms to raise our portapotty anyway. Works better that way.

I have the original porta potty from our VT. it has the accordion style plunger and it doesn't work. I never spent a lot of time on it but replaced it with a Dometic, with a pump and pushbutton flush (I believe it's a 975-M) because I wanted an MSD in case I ever move it to the boat. It fits perfectly under the cutout in the VT shower area, just clearing the cutout. The seat is nice and tall but a little small. I have heard good things about the Thetford models.

Regards,

Matt

Are you looking to get rid of the original unit?

we use the space under the front seat for an electric heater, and try to get a site with bushes around it.

The porta potty for the VT's are different than for the CT's, they say Vacationer on the pull handle
