Default A Smart Class B Bathroom Solution?

With space in a Class B at a premium and on-board water restricted due to size, would this make sense for a smaller RV instead of a composting toliet or traditional toilet?


A stow-able toilet would result in a larger on-board shower space and could be used outside in a protected tent instead of in an enclosed van (weather permitting).

If it is saving space and more, a tripod with toilet seat and Wag Bags. And almost free compared to that green thing.

Looks overly complicated to me. I’ve never liked temporary toilets stowed away and then you have to poop and pee in your open to galley, aisle or living space. I will have an enclosed bathroom.

BTW... What is the status of your new 144 Sprinter build out?

Looks like just a real expensive way to "hot bag". A bucket and a bag would give you the same solution for a couple bucks if you are the type to poo in a bag.

We are pretty much finalizing our 2019 Sprinter order and have put down a deposit. It will be a 2500 144 Sprinter. No dually or 4x4. We have a lot of design work and decisions to do yet. Delivery date is unknown but we will get with ARV at the end of April.

This is a first generation 3D image of the interior. I’m continuing to refine it but the kitchen galley is essentially as much as we have now and the bathroom is bigger with a 30” x 31” floor. We also have 27 cubic foot storage in the back for two folding bikes, or two inflatable kayaks or anything else we desire to carry which is more space than we have now in our extended van. Note the 30” wide bunk beds. They occupy 26% of available floor space instead of 60% if twin beds on the floor or a sofa/bed arrangement. The 828ah lithium batteries will be inside under the lower bed.

Davyyd, that is intriguing. How about posting a floorplan?

@ Davydd

Will you be producing a special ongoing thread / post anywhere on your project similar to your last Class B build?

Default Seems less sanitary as well.... I agree with you 💯 percent.

I definitely would not want to have a temporary toilet....on board with all my stuff and food.
That's what holding tanks are for...

I guess I don’t see the advantage of this gadget over using a portable wag bag toilet...

Products

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...
