    Exactly. Getting a full service bathroom in a TT is a huge upgrade...I imagine it's quite the experience for the whole family in a popup when dad is 3 feet away behind a shower curtain. I bet the sights, sounds, and smells are memory making.

    For my husband and me, using the folding toilet in the pup wasn't a problem, but I know that for some it's definitely a problem. If we had ever had others staying in the pup, we'd have used the potty tent or just trekked to the campground facilities. The TT actually has a (wet) bathroom with walls and a door, plus a fan if needed. Poopourri is a good product, helpful but not the type of thing that sets off my asthma. Not a full solution, but much better than the scented products sold for RVs.
    With the TT, I was leery about having to cope with the waste tanks. For the most part, it isn't anywhere as bad as I feared - really my only issue with it is my cranky hands managing the connectors and caps. We have solved most of the problems, and Courtenay has an idea to help me work the connector at the trailer on my own. I admit I prefer having to service the tanks when we're camped in a site with FHUs, if possible, so we can take our time without someone waiting behind us.

    My wife is mobility impaired, has to use a walker to get around. During the day, she uses the campsite facilities, but at night, she uses the porta potty.

    In the PUP, never since there was no capacity.

    In the TT, yes, and often.

    E74176C7-3EF2-4A1E-8A74-A3918E64D525.jpeg originally the pup was moms, so YES, a nice “bedside commode” was required. we got a great toilet, i made a box stand for it to be higher for her to sit & get up.
    where we boondocked, it was a godsend. i still had my tent & my own commode.
    Dometic 5 gallon flushing.

    now its just me. i modified the front cabinet door, made a rollling tray for the toilet, tp & trashcan. out of sight but easy to access..
    details on my blog.
    after a month of latrine/outhouse duty at GS camp, cleaning this one is easy.

    my trick is to add cheap fragrant bubble bath to the blue chems. it covers the chem smell & helps when dumping. i prefer thicker tp, so i put tp in trash. toilet lasts longer, chems work better.

    if i have time when breaking camp, i can take base to dump station & empty, or use camp toilet- which is another reason to not put tp in commode- too much stops up their plumbing. dont ever want to be THAT. rude camper. if not enough time, i dump when i get home.

    i have a usb power mist diffuser for any odors, like 2 big dogs.

    Everyone does it! I ought to know. I read the book!

    Believe it or not, there was thought behind asking the question in a thread. Obviously not everyone is comfortable talking about this issue but I feel it is a very relevant topic here on the Portal. It is an "activity" that all campers have in common with each other yet few want to talk about it. It is personal preference on how to handle the deed. I know someone that likes to camp, but doesn't, because they don't want to deal with it. I feel that this question is no less relevant than asking if someone cooks inside their pup, except I am using the word "poop"[:(O] in my question instead.

    If this discussion ends up helping someone make their camping experience better, then I've accomplished my goal in starting this discussion. The other goal I had was for folks to have fun with it. I think that I accomplished my two main goals.

    And, yes, it's cold up here, so I poop[:(O] inside.o_O

    For anyone of us who has had kids and has therefore had to deal with changing diapers the idea that this discussion should put anyone off is silly. [LOL] Compared to diaper duty using / servicing a porta potti, cassette toilet, flush toilet w/ black tank ought to be a total non-issue. [:P]

    when my bff firrst got remarried, she would drive 5 miles to come to MY house to take care of biz. . she didnt want new hubby to see/smell/know.

    now they live in big 5th wheel...w black tank.

    a shower tent & good toilet can make ALL the difference in camping comforts. i may be out camping, but we ain’t roughing it!

    This thread has the potential to rival "Smoky fires and large busted women not wearing bras." [LOL][LOL][LOL]

    Since TP was brought up, I thought I'd add this.

    You don't need specia RV toilet paper. You can look on youtube for TP tests. Basically: if it's safe for septic, it's safe for your RV toilet. Kirkland, Angel Soft and Charmin all work fine. So you can pick the one you like and use it. Amount is similar to any other toilet - you know if you use too much in one sitting. The one brand I know that can be a problem is Northern. It even clogs up my house pipes.

    You don't need chemicals to "break down" the deposits like you do with septic. The RV toilet is dumped far too often for that to be a problem and if the dumping location is septic, it will receive its own chemicals. Chemicals for smells is a personal choice.

    We just use regular "septic safe" TP in the black tank. I usually put a big squirt of dish detergent in the tank with the first few gallons of water that goes in the tank...I have and have not used chemicals. I never could tell a difference in regards to smell.
