    My wife and I have a Freedom 1640 and are thoroughly enjoying it. Since it has no indoor bathroom we
    currently use an Wolfwise outdoor bathroom shelter with a outdoor potty. We are thinking of purchasing a
    Thetford 135 portapotti and using it inside the PUP. Was wondering what others do?

    Some prefer a potti inside the camper, others prefer a potti shelter placed near the camper, others refuse to use a potti of any kind and use the campground bath house. Your choice. ;)

    Thetford 565E...we use it inside.
    Large freshwater tank...larger waste water tank...electric bowl fill and best part is its the height on it is the same as a home toilet.
    I hated the idea of one until i used it.
    Simple to use and not smellyat all with the chemicals and plenty large enough for extended stays with 2 people.

    We have an older Thetford in our truck camper. It stays inside and gets pulled out of a cabinet when needed (on the road or the middle of the night). Other facilities are used preferentially. Upcoming trip we will take a shower tent for it because the entire family will be forced to use it. :)

    They don't smell. We've had people sleep on the dinette a few inches away from it...

    (In the popup trailer, I would love to replace the built-in black tank potty with my trusty portapotty. It's simply better if you don't camp with hookups.)

    We had a 135 for years before we bought the pup, with cassette toilet, I highly recommend it. Other than the fact that the seat is very low I had no complaints. But the low seat will be a benefit if you plan to store it in the pup. Be sure to read the manual about cleaning and maintenance.

    We have a full bathroom in our pup, which was a requirement of mine when we bought it. On our previous bathroom-less pup, we had a thetford style potty that always stayed indoors. I didn't want to go outside in the middle of the night, and as a mother of 4, nighttime pees happen frequently.

    During the day, we just used the bathhouse. Now, since COVID, we use our indoor bathroom exclusively.

    My old Jayco did not have a potty. We managed to find one just small enough to slide in the cabinet (with mods) by the door. It really only got pulled out at night for those midnight potty runs. During the day we used the bath house for the most part but occasionally it was being pulled out during the day. Problem is the only place to put the potty was right in front of the fridge/stove to use. So it had to be put away in the cabinet every time you were done. My new to me popup now has an on board potty with a curtain for privacy. So no having to put the porta pot away every use.

    Thetford 135 inside the pup for night water only and only if it’s just the dw and me. Set it up where the folding dinette table usually is set up. If I’m camping with anyone else I don't set it up and we make the trips up the hill when necessary.

    We don't have a toilet in our 2000 Dutchman Voyager. It's the 1205D (King bed and queen bed). We have a 2 year old who we are trying to potty train and my wife and I wouldn't mind taking less trips to the bathroom at night, but then again, since getting the pup, neither one of us have had to get up in the middle of the night to use it. I think the real culprit is drinking less beer before bed. Even so, we are considering a cassette toilet setup but despite all the sleeping space we have, there isn't room to have one stored in the rig. We're leaning towards a shower tent/toilet combo we can setup.
