Here is another question regarding toilets.

If you DO NOT have a toilet in your rig, how do you usually find the acCOMMODE-ations at the RV parks you visit?

Do you find that most places offer clean restrooms and showers?

Is it worth using the park facilities to gain the extra space in your RV?

Does it make a big difference in weight? Maybe my Escape could handle the weight if no toilet/shower and associated water tanks?

My Escape is an '02 V6 3.0.

Texas has a lot of well attended fiberglass trailer rallies. Usually on Saturday they have an open house, a great chance to check out trailers. Go to the rally section of the forum for details.

We use campground showers and some are better than our home showers.

Clean is subjective.... I learned to swim in a cattle trough (don't put your feet down! ). So, if there's plenty of hotwater coming out of the shower head and I've got shower shoes on.... I'm good to go. Others expect "operating room clean," may be sadly disappointed. But I get as clean as YOU.

If there's a pit toilet and it's nasty, but I've brought my own TP and can hold my breath long enough or breathe through my mouth... it's usable.

Come on group... we've all been there. Admit it.

I could probably buy a porta-potty to have as a backup in the trailer, because I am not one to use a toilet at an outdoor rock concert...

But I can deal with a reasonably clean shower. No doubt shower shoes would be in order, even if it looks spotless!

I have noticed that you can get a reasonably nice, and slightly larger motorhome, like the Sunrader (mid to late 80's) for a pretty low price - some even have low miles. You know there is always one out there that someone's grandpa owned and cared for diligently.

SO MANY DECISIONS!

That's OUR secret Brochures and pictures don't even come close to sitting in a dinette or stretching out on a bed.

Best of luck in your egg hunt!

I use the campground facilities. Most are clean, some are not great. But as Donna says, use shower shoes, and that hot water will handle the dirt and germs. I also have a porta potti to avoid night time treks outside. Since I only have a 13'r, I do not want us lose even 3 square feet for a bathroom. But it's all up to what you prefer. Welcome !
