Homemade Portable Toilet

Postby Dee Bee » Sat Jul 01, 2006 5:43 pm

I found this link and thought it had merit.... This is more than just a 5 gal dump bucket.
I might be a good alternative for those who want a pot in the TD or who will use a cabana/pot combo to avoid the common bathhouse toilet scene.

As I read the article this was a toilet designed by an architect for use in third world, urban poor, and disaster situations.

I looked at both of those links , thanks, looks like it would be good if you are in a primitive type camping area.
I guess you could open a baby's diaper and put in the bottom too, but then you'd have to take the 'bag' part out to throw it away.
What would you use for a seat? Or ladies would just have to 'balance'...

I've like the way it describes the 'gas' being captured.

We have used the Luggable Loo brand seat on a 5 gal. bucket with a garbage bag liner containing kitty litter. Its stable on level ground and reasonably easy on cleanup. Cablea's has them for $10.

I bought a toilet seat from Home Depot for $4.99. A 5 galllon bucket for free that held my chlorine tablets for the pool. I took it when it was empty and then designed a wooden mounting frame that I bolted the seat to and this fit down over the bucket perfectly. One small trash bag as you say and some kitty litter and there you have it .........!

A call it the "Crap Master 2000". :D

My wife and I use the luggable loo also with kitchen trash bags in our tent. I don't have a trailer, yet, but am wondering where to put the potty at night when we need it. Going outside in the cold air is a pain. Right now our tent is big enough for us to get up and go to it but in a small trailer it might not be possible.
We don't like to cook when we are going somewhere, prefering to eat at restaurants. Has anyone modified their cooking area for a toilet area?

someone put a front porch over the tongue for a toilet room.
seemed like a good idea, but can't find the pic at the moment.

re. kitty litter.... cedar, or other fragrant sawdust/router-leavins can be used too!

Rockett Box

Postby Yogi Bear » Fri Oct 13, 2006 10:32 pm

Hello All,

While on the Green River in Moab, Ut.
The boat Capt. had us all use a Rockett Box!
Sounds fun Huh?

Pack in. Pack out!

A Rockett Box is, a Green 50 cal. Ammo can!

I am glad I don't work for the Capt. Rockett Box on the river.
Because, I know what my job would be when we came back to the dock..
:(

Ah, those good ole river rafting days!

On our first river rafting trip (down the Colorado through the Grand Canyon), our "buddy" was named Oscar. Oscar got the best campsite; typically the tent was placed on a bluff overlooking the river for quiet contemplation while doing ones business.

At first all of us decided no bathroom trips whatsoever! Sorta hard to do for 11 days. After a while Oscar got to be our friend. Which was good. Oscar got packed up and hauled on our raft.

WOW, imagine this showing up at a pre-game tailgate party. :shock:

But it is hilarious. :lol:

Don't forget to scroll down to the bottom of the bumper-dumper web site for the video...................... :lol: :lol: :lol:

If you buy the Bumper Dumper with the optional roller blades, you don't even have to pull off the freeway to let mama use it.
