The human waste moralizing is reminding me of the disposable dishes moralizing that recently happened on this other thread.

Whether it's a plastic bag or a plastic fork, the calculus is the same - there is so much pollution generated by any given Class B that to quibble over this or that fragment of plastic is an exercise in lunacy.

Some numbers to illustrate this perspective. I generate 3.7 tons of CO2 on my annual trip to Nova Scotia alone. Since buying the Class B, I've emitted approximately one million pounds of CO2 just from fuel combustion!! That does not account for the massive amount of waste that was generated or the massive amount of energy that was consumed during the initial Class B manufacturing process.

Obviously, if I were really serious about reducing pollution, the thing for me to do is to not give the slightest thought to plastic forks and bags, and simply drive less. Worrying about forks and bags is like rearranging deck chairs on the Titanic.

I use a simple composting toilet that lives in the shower stall while driving. It’s cheap, easy and eco-friendly.

Campgrounds are usually closed from about October 15 to May 1 in Minnesota for the winter. Even if opened, bathrooms and dump stations may be closed. It is not easy to find an RV dumpstation, especially in a metro area. My condo garage complex fortunately has one and I will use it next week.

How is it eco friendly when disposal is actually not compost?

Interesting design. It looks like white painted wood construction. Portable toilet slides in and it seems this bathroom is either shower or toilet.

I don't understand why bathroom compartments/cabinets are not widely used. It has the same advantages (including privacy with the addition of a sound isolating curtain) as a dedicated bathroom, but is more space efficient because it also serves as countertop or seating area when not being used as a bathroom. A compartment/cabinet can accommodate any type of toilet (rv, cassette, porta potty, bucket, composting). So why isn't this design more popular?

For a clever design on a larger vehicle look at the Earthcruiser combination entryway, shower, toilet area. Not practical on a Class B due to the layout but for the Earthcruiser it makes perfect sense...

I'm not a fan of convertible or dual use of space if I can help it and certainly where privacy is compromised or interferes with your partner's activity and definitely not in the same space where food is served. In a Class B that is everywhere, thus a defined enclosed bathroom with ventilation. You do have to compromise with a wet bath if you desire showering usually in a Class B but wet baths have proven to keep your bathroom cleaner.

If you are a weekender or solo traveler maybe you could tolerate it, but if you are out for several weeks on extended trips with a partner it can wear on you.
