Double shower curtains. Mine is a shoilet though so it has a provision for curtains anyway.

Our Fleetwood came with a shower curtain frame that hangs from the ceiling. All it blocks is the visual; sounds and smell remain consistent. You have to be a close family! :)

That's primarily why we limit the cassette to night-time #1 only. We're mostly sleeping when someone goes and it's not a major source of smell with the chemicals in the tank. It's easier to clean later and privacy is acceptable with a shower curtain under those circumstances.

You practise the courtesy of looking away while the facilities are used.

I have double shower curtains. That's fine for peeing. And the kids are ok with #2. My DW as well, though she'll send us outside for a few minutes. ;)

Showering is less problematic as it doesn't produce an aroma.

Really, I prefer not using the Thetford toilet, but we have it so that my wife and kids will be happy campers. And it does seem to make a difference for them. For me, it's just more work, cleaning it out, refilling the freshwater, and so on. But camping is for the family, not just me, so I try to quietly tolerate their preference.

We only use it overnight. Everyone else is sleeping so privacy isn’t an issue.
Ours is a bucket with a garbage bag, kitty litter, and a toilet seat on it. We empty it daily and use the campground facilities during the day.

I have no privacy at home The DW uses the bathroom whether i'm on the throne or not so the only privacy I have is the curtains that block the view from outside.

What everyone else said. Mostly night time, but if no facilities in the campground, I'll use the potty daytime to. I make it my job to dump and clean, it's mostly for my use. In our little pup, the potty fits in the cabinet to rt of the door. When the cabinet door is open, it makes a sort of enclosure. Camper door (locked) to back, cabinet door in front and cabinet on either side. I've thought about some Velcro on the ceiling with a curtain that goes from ceiling to floor, which would actually make a little room. Usually it is just the two of us, but sometimes it's nice to have a little privacy, at least we could skip closing the window curtains.
We used to have a vw westalia and that was tight quarters. We carried a pop up shower room for the potty and that was nice and convenient. May get another for use with the pop up.

We have the rooftop unit running 24/7 when we're camping. It's either on a/c, fan, or heat. Good background noise as far as privacy goes. Due to our bathroom's location and the set up, it's really private anyway. It's blocked on three sides and only curtains in the front, but there are two layers and they are Velcro'ed into place.
