Which brand of porta potti does scamp sell as an option. Are there better ones, or is this one OK?

I'd be interested in similar information, seeing as how we just bought a "pop up" outhouse / shower, we are going to need something to go out to...

Basically looking for a porta potti primer.

What is the difference between the brands and models.
Any features to look for, anything to avoid.
Any easier to maintain? Empty? Fill (with water for flushing folks)
Air pump vs flush ???

One item, I've been cognizant of is the height. I want to travel with it in the back of the P/U under my tonneau. Seems that some models have the same top half with a smaller or larger bottom.

For us, primary intended use would be for night time liquids except in emergency or the very very rare boondocking trip.

I don't know what brand Scamp offers but we bought a Coleman porta pottie for our Scamp. It fits nicely under the front seat. The taller potties won't fit in that space. It has an air pump to bring water into the bowl. To make it more "user friendly" I built a simple wood box that makes it standard toilet height when we bring it out at night. I also attached a TP holder to the side of the box, so that's always handy. The Coleman is simple to use, easy to clean & we are very satisfied with it. It's the only one I've ever used so I can't compare it to any other brand.

I like my Thetford as it has a little twist out pour spout for draining. My old porta potti did not have that and was not as easy to empty.

Since we are limited on how tall it can be we have the 135 which fits under the front in the porta potty storage area. I put a base under it to raise the height at night.

I just carry a squeeze bottle (like detergent) of water for rinsing. I've never tried using the water holding top part. Potty is lighter for me to move in an out of storage and I just fill my squeeze bottle at night before bed.
