Alas, I wish I could say I had the patent on it! Full name is Uncle Booger's Bumper Dumper, and you can even buy a T-Shirt. American Ingenuity.

on the seat + bucket... this is our first season with the three legged seat thingy...before that we had the luggable-loo toilet seat on the 2 gallon bakery-frosting bucket (the opening fits a 5 gallon lid/loo seat but is closer to the ground...wife's pick).

The same thing could be said about crawling back into an all-molded TOWABLE while under tow

Yes, it's a delicate question, but one we must all deal with. We have the Dometic brand "sanipottie" that Scamp sells. I thought it would be helpful for you to see a copy of the Owner's Manual but the Scamp link to it does not work, nor can I find it online. Scamp Trailers - Owners Manuals Camping with the Scamp was my first experience with a porta-pottie. Following are some of my comments/tips. Warning: This may be more than you want to know, but it's exactly what I wanted to know but did not know to ask.
  • Yes, it's a bit short and tricky to use if you have bad knees. It might be a good idea to make a 4-6" high box of wood with 3 sides that can store on top and be used only when you bring it out.
  • Guys, it's impractical/messy to stand using this pottie; better to sit, sorry.
  • We keep the pottie in the designated spot under the front "sofa".
  • We put a rug sample under the pottie to make it easy to slide it out easily without scratching the cabinet floor. (note: we also have an area rug on the "kitchen" floor.)
  • Best to use pottie for #1 only as it's much easier to dump/clean.
  • Two toilet paper rolls can be put on an IKEA toilet brush stored in the pottie cabinet.
  • Scott brand toilet paper breaks down easily.
  • Don't put flushable wipes in our sewer systems. Read about it here Flushable wipes clogging sewage systems? - SFGate
  • We put the toilet paper or wipes in a flip-top garbage can. No toilet paper makes it easier to dump.
  • You may dump into most flush toilets but NOT most pit toilets because the chemicals mess with their chemical balance.
  • We prefer to dump in a toilet in a stall. This keeps the experience more private and doesn't require great aim! Lift the seat, flush, pour, flush again. Done!
  • We rinse the tank with clean water at the dumpsite or with a handheld container of the water for that purpose.
  • Do use the chemicals recommended (or a bit of laundry detergent) to keep down the smell.
  • I don't think I'd like to have the pottie under my bed, just sayin'.
  • I agree with others, dump every 3 or 4 days. It's difficult to tell when it's full and I don't want any surprises!
Hope these comments help. Good luck with your choice of "loo".
Happy Camping!
Gilda (Jill-da)

I wouldn't trade my flushable china toilet for a lugaloo or porta-whatever for nuthin', but that's MY choice and YOURs may be different and that's what's important.

I have the Thetford 135. The trouble with it is that it low to the ground. I store mine under the bed. Since I have a couch I leave the dinette permanently as a bed. I have a piece of plywood with low sides on it that fits the space under the bed (that is the footwell of the dinette area). It acts as a tray that I can pull out to get to anything that I store on it.

Well, I store the PP there. I made a brace for the tray so when I pull it out it doesn't tilt because the footwell area is elevated about 4" above the main floor. The brace is 3 pieces of wood cut the height of the stepup area. It's hooked together with 2 "L" brackets and stores around the PP.

Since the PP sits on the tray it is at a very usable height when I pull the tray out.

====================================
This is just me, but a commode is NOT a urinal.
Why everyone uses it for a urinal irritates me.
Especially when there are 2 to 4 empty urinals and
some insist on using the commode. Guess they want
that privacy, but it's disgusting to follow them and they
splattered all over it.
