A new look in porta-potties? anyone here try one?

Saw this different looking portapotty that has pretty good reviews, wondered if anyone here has tried it?

Nice look...but too tall for the potty compartment provided in stock first-gen Trillium 4500's, and perhaps other older trailers.

Dunno what we'll do if they ever quit making the good ol' Thetford 135!

I like the idea of a more standard height but I don't know where I'd keep it. I will have to go measure the compartment but I don't think it is tall enough.

The shortest Thetford is what fits in my trailer.

Scamp 13 under couch that would be a no-go here, but Thetford does make a good product from what I have seen.

The square ones may be less able to tip over (I'm thinking about during driving and hitting bumps, although some of the younger folk may think of, erm, strenuous activities in odd places as well).

I really like the height of this one and it's very sleek and modern.
Thumbs up!!

Unfortunately, this won't fit under my bed.
Rats!

That's right. We have a spot dedicated to it inside our wetbath/shower compartment. Ours will be mounted to the floor with the Thetford-supplied bracket.

Used one this weekend and it was great! Love the height but yes, as part of my interior redesign I will be making a higher bench to accomodate it.

It wouldn't be too tough to steal from the cabinet above it to make room and I'd sure love the increased height. Hmm, may have to think about it.

Probably use the new 260B - almost the same size. I'm guessing the 135 might be getting slated for retirement unless there is some other reason to have two nearly identical products.

Porta Potti 260B

There is also a P version of both 135 and 260 that has the piston pump rather than the bellows. Not sure if it makes any difference to folks other than having heard the piston tends to be a bit more durable. Also from my reading the P is the marine version with the brackets to mount.

I'm tempted to go with a porta potti for "civilized" rustic campgrounds, and a seat on legs for National Forest. I already have a shovel.

Just reading this thread and saw the picture of your round dinette table and had to comment, I really like how it opens up that whole area...

Thumbs up I have one in my Compact Jr.

Project Boomerang

BUT

I had to totally reconfigure the floorplan to provide a dedicated space for it.
Like in Robert Johans' Nest, mine is permanently installed using their floor plate.

I love mine!
