Post by Helen on Sat 18 Jun 2011, 11:08 am

After John accidentaly dropped the seal of our old porta-loo down the elson disposal I ended up having to borrow my daughters Thetford one, I discovered something magical .............. It was a lot higher and that meant that I didnt get halfway down and fall the rest Laughing I also found the flush was a lot better as ours was one that you had to pull up and down to pump but hers you just pushed and it came back up on its own. bounce

I am going to look at some over the weekend and will probably get some strange looks when I sit on them all to try out the height lol!

This smacks of 'going upmarket'! Do they make them yet with electric flush and ancilliary warm air blowers? I do know what you mean, however, as She Who Must Be Obeyed has commented that ours is a tad on the low side. Unfortunately it has to share its time between the Designer and the motor home and 'Compact' is all that will fit. Alternatives could be carrying a piece of railway sleeper around to give the loo extra height (so green and lighter than concrete blocks), or if you want to feel as if your 'communing with nature' try googling 'Bog in a Bag'. I can imagine you taking a walk in the early morning with one of these useful little stools over one shoulder and binoculars over the other, taking up station in the corner of some far flung field and allowing the wonder of nature to hold you in its grip for a while.
Remember that for men there is always a spade but for women there's 'Bog in a Bag' - because you're worth it.

We use the Pett toilet system & WAG bags they are brilliant and the toilet base itself us more or less the same height as a normal loo.

Porta - Loo Empty Bog in a Bag

Post by Owd Lad on Sat 18 Jun 2011, 2:43 pm

I'd hate for anyone to think that I'm slating this product, just poking fun. We own one and we also carry a couple of 'portable urinals' (red plastic bed bottles with a screw cap and a suitably shaped adaptor for use by the ladies. These items are emminently practical (especially at night), sanitary, light weight and take up almost no space. Convention has put us in the mind set that there are certain prerequisites for doing certain things. Items such as these take a different slant, so, I urge you to embrace the different, it's not too hard. After all you must remember that we are the ones who enjoy spending time in pvc tents. If that's not different then I don't know what is!

our 1st toilet was a Kampa flush 20 porta loo and it was fine well except for the leaking seal on the waste tank.Luckily we discovered this on our 1st trip before anything nasty leaked out.I tried several times to screw cap on yet it just leaked not sure if it was poor moulding or cap although regardless how tight cap was on it still had side to side play in it.We now have a Dometic porta loo,the loo moulding and size is identical to the Kampa one so its probably just sold under loads of different brands.The cap though is different and as such this toilet doesn't leak.The loo seat is similar height to regular ceramic loo so feels natural,although our is for late night pee's only,i think we paid £45 for it.

Dear All

Don't know about this year but last years chemical loo from Lidl was a Thetford. Might still be some of this years left don't think they went as quick as the electric coolbox.

Cheap tip for that desire to get up 4am to go to loo.
Fabric Conditioner. No I'm not going to suggest you use that much that it doesn't smell if you let go where you are.
Fabric Conditioner Bottles. 2litre capacity. Opening at the neck about 3". If you require more generous proportions than these, then damn you. You deserve to suffer at some point.
Ladies the above suggestion doesn't sound too female friendly. Alas I can think of no suitable adjustment. But then again I'm useless at female anatomy. (Just ask former wife, girlfriends etc)
So don't be shy is there an adaptation or a similar but different thing for girls?

Kevin.

I havent found anything more suitable for me than a loo or a quick run around the back of the windbreak in the middle of the night in my youth. Remeber that they do split in two and can be transported like this and put together when you get there. Very Happy The height is important for me as I have a back problem so I do need something with a bit of height about it. Smile
