Heres an idea of how this model works.

I always get a warped sense of bemusement whenever I see people taking their sh*t for a walk, cup of coffee in the other hand, uttering chipper "Morning!" to everyone on the way ...

The Thor name appears on the T@B/T@DA website, as this is one of Thor's many brands. It is distributed and supported by the Dutchmen branch, which is why the page of owners manuals is mostly irrelevant to the T@B and T@DA (it's the Dutchmen collection).

There should be lots of dealers; there are quite a few in B.C. at at least some in Alberta; my guess is that any Dutchmen dealer can carry them if they think there's a market.

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.

The kitchen fixtures are typical of Dometic's newer stuff, which is starting to show up in Class B motorhomes as well. Very slick (especially the ones with integral glass covers).

Mary, I like your idea for a brand name, but I believe they would spell it "Voil@"

Mike, thanks for the mention about the curious hitch; I never stopped to look closely at it on the T@B.
I had no idea it was a control device - I just figured it was a Euro design.
The T@DA, by looking at the pictures, definitely doesn't have it.

And thanks Chester, for the cassette step-by-step. I agree with Herb, I would feel mighty
conspicuous carrying such a thing...I would probably pull it out AT the dump station, empty it and
replace it, so where's the advantage compared to the conventional setup? Do you empty a cassette into a
conventional flush toilet ever? That's the only advantage I would see.

I went to the BIG dealer in town today, who usually has 2-3 T@Bs on hand. Of course there were no
T@DAs, as we now know they're not in full production yet, and they didn't have brochures yet either.

Sept 20th will be three years aboard the Casita and I'm still admiring it every day!

Not likely very frequently; however, at a campsite with outhouses (pit toilets, whatever you call the non-flush variety) but no dump site, the portable and cassette toilets certainly have the advantage. Even at a fully equipped campsite, the long-term resident might choose to carry the cassette to the nearest toilet (flush or otherwise) every 5 gallons of "output", rather than breaking camp and hauling the trailer to the dump site every 10 gallons (in the case of my Boler) or whatever.

Actually, yes, you can. Just like your porta potti. It's the same thing, different configuration.

I have yet to run into an objection when dumping my porta potti holding down a flush OR pit toilet, and certainly, never a squeek when dumping in a dump station hole. Same for gray.

Yes, the advantage is you don't have to move the trailer to dump. I see some folks do that, looks like a pain.

But so does going to the public facilities, which is what I have had to do when my tank was full. I wouldn't move it just to dump.

Well, you may hear a squeek or two when emptying into a pit toilet from the resident mouse...

Wow...

All this fuss over cassette toilets...

I'm still happy with my 8-track toilet.


I'll admit I've never figured out what to do with tracks 3-8 though...

Wow, Mike... how old-fashioned! Have you not seen the new solid-state iPotty? I hear they're all the rage. They're sized to hold 40 giga-gallons now, but only take up half the space of the originals!

I just don't trust those new-fangled things. From what I hear just a little static electricity can cause them to dump their contents unexpectedly! No thanks!

Roger: where did you see the new iPotty? I understand they are not out yet and that they are planning an introduction similar to the iPhone.

The idea is that long lines would form outside Camping World but that they would announce at the last minute that there would be a 6-hour delay
and that they would NOT provide Honey Buckets for the people in line. I believe it is a bottom-line strategy for greater profits.
