When we picked up our Scamp- the seller said- oh Ihave the porta potty that came with it somewhere in the shed...... Hubby said- Oh that's okay we'lljust use ours from our pop-up..

NO we can't! It's too tall for the Scamp potty spot....

I DO need one!!!

Anyone have one they do not want???

Call the seller back and go get it.

Actually port-a-pots are available lots of places. Try your local Wally World..they even have them.

Porta Pootis are a personal thing..

A new one might be a better idea, a Thetford 155 fits perfectly under the seats of these things. They cost around 80 bones.

I did call the seller- since we didn't want the thing when we picked up the trailer- he threw it out...

Oh well... It's just ME who hates to make that lonely, lonely trip to campsite toilets twice a night!

If we ever camped in VERY spacious spots right next to the woods... well- even I have been know to make like a bear instead of go to the lonely bathhouse... some of these campgrounds.. geeesh you're really really far from the toilets!!

I did read a tip from a boater----he says they stay on their boat for extended periods of time- a boat without a head.

He uses a five gallon bucket- and either cedar shavings or sawdust---- you go, put on sawdust, in layers. He guarantees no smells for quite a while... then you dig a hole and empty the contents into it. Put the lid on when moving..

'cept the same problem exists- the potti spot in the Scamp is too low for a five gallon bucket!!!

DRAT getting older and middle of the night bathroom trips.

My trailer came without the original potty. I thought I would never use one anyway... gross to empty it ...blah blah.

My brother convinced me to get one and try it. Because my Scamp is all la-di-da, the potty cabinet is not very tall. I found a Passport Potty at Wal-Mart for less than $60 that fits perfectly. It's VERY easy to empty and DOES NOT SMELL!!!

No more midnight trips across a campground for me! And as a bonus, I have my OWN pot to use when traveling! (Close your curtains first!)

Definately worth every cent!
