I have seen several DIY builds with a single space used for the shower and for a portable toilet that can be moved out when taking a shower. Minimizes the area needed for a wet bath. From the reactions so far, it is clear that not everyone would go for this approach...

If one were OK with a portable toilet, I think that is a decent solution, especially if the shower stall has easy to slide out of the way storage for non shower types of when not using the shower.

I’m totally OK with a portable bag-based toilet, but if you gave me that monstrosity, I’d get rid of it. My set-up cost about ~$40 and $34 of that is the stool we regularly use otherwise. I’ve never wished I had anything fancier, and a one-gallon bucket is mighty easy to store..

I agree that the featured product would not interest me. It is all hat and no cattle.

Watching that video, I wasn't sure what to expect, but that plus the thread title reminded me of this gem which I found by accident on a surplus auction site when I was searching for a good aircraft seat foot rest to use when I have my T1N Sprinter passenger seat swiveled backwards (which puts my feet too high off the floor).

At some point, I have no doubt that some Instagram DIY vanner is going to introduce the world to this rather unusual adaptation. This, too, is a bit too far out for my taste. Dual-purpose cab passenger seating, anyone?? Anyone??

That 'throne' can truly be described as a multi-functional device.

With the right person using it, 'weapon of mass destruction' comes to mind.

It's funny, isn't it? I just can't imagine the usage scenario. Presumably from the size of the seat, it came out of a large enough aircraft to have both pilot and co-pilot. So, does one guy get an exclusive loo, or does the other guy also have one, like loo too? And if one has to go, does the other step outside the cabin while the deed is done? Leaving the other guy to fly by the seat of his pants (which are actually on the floor)?

These may be logistical details which none of us should be privy to, pun intended.

Actually, a lot of small private jets have a bathroom that is specifically designed to accommodate an extra passenger when needed.

I would be mortified to be in a plane crash and the rescuers find me in a debris field strapped in that device 'in the altogether'. /s

Anything that adds "disposable" plastic bags to the environment is bad. Secondly, anything that causes human waste to be disposed of in a manner other than through a septic or sewage treatment system is bad, especially if it's mixed in with normal "trash" and you're potentially exposing other people in the trash-waste disposal 'system' to your waste. There are too many of us doing this now. We all need to be more mindful of what happens with those plastic bags after they leave our hands.

Stick with a composting toilet, porta-pottie, or standard dump RV system.
