Most porta-potties fit in the center area under the front couch/bunk bed area. The only dimension to worry about is the height, and if you buy one via scamp
it will fit. At night we place it, the TP, and a small garbage bag specifically for TP by the door and out of the way but accessible for all. The only inconvenience is the big dog taking up the floor space! (He earns his keep as a watch dog though.) Like you, we must have a porta-potty (mostly nighttime use) and prefer to use state campgrounds where the showers are nice and clean. Also, with any extended travel, truck stops often offer beautiful private bathrooms for about 5 bucks. We enjoy a little bit of "roughing it" (camping vs. RVing) so cook and eat outdoors (hate the smell of past meals in the camper), use the camper sink much like a bathroom sink (washing faces and brushing teeth) and so far (years) have never used the stove for anything but hot water (for tea and sponge baths). A nice bonus is how that use warms up the camper on chilly mornings. I have contemplated pulling the stove out for more counter space, but since we do occasionally use it and really don't need counter top space (lack of cooking indoors), a stove cover is more practical. We spend our camping days biking, hiking, swimming, fishing, etc. If the weather is bad we can spend time in the camper comfortably watching movies or playing board games (things we seldom do at home) or drive into the nearest town and find some indoor activity. We love our tiny camper!
