That's a video Advanced RV made when they were researching the first compost toilet ARV which they have since delivered. Other ARV customers are considering composting toilets.

I was in UK this last month, visiting a friend there who has a Euro style motorhome. Handling his cassette toilet is different than the way we do it here, but it didn't seem to be much of a hassle.

We haven't had a good Composting toilet discussion in awhile. It is always fun to watch some people squirm when contemplating more intimate encounters with their natural waste products. Come on people, didn't you ever change your kids diapers? You did survive that didn't you? A little poop mixed with coco fiber and a jug of pee is no big deal...

Yeah. And I've also survived quite a few encounters with cat-hole latrines in the woods. Doesn't mean that I'm looking forward to the next time.

I wonder if there could be a market for cassette toilets where one just drives up to a place and swap your full cassette with an empty. Quick clean process.

There is no way that I could pick the darn thing up. The tank would be beyond my weight carrying limit.

Well that got us rethinking our options. We have a Winnebago Era 70a ordered for late [U]August delivery and were considering having the composting toilet factory installed but that apparently would have to be done separately after delivery so we will probably wait until we get more input from some users of the compost toilet. Any input both pro and con will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

How would a composting toilet extend your boondocking ability? I find that my gray tank is just a long a pole in the tent as the black tank. If you need to go to the dump station to dump gray water anyway, what is the big deal dumping black water at the same time?
