Well, this isn’t really the most revolutionary topic but I decided to just tackle it head on!
The Luggable Loo, biodegradable bags, and Poo Powder are our current go-to-s!
Continue reading to learn a bit more about how we ended up loving the Loo. Don’t worry, I pretty much left out all of the dirty details!
By the way, you can click on the pictures to link for more information on the Loo and our favorite accessories!
Seriously, this isn’t a joke. We love these products!
Warning: If you are not used to driving through remote wilderness with two young kids that need to go potty, then you may find some of this information uncomfortable.
The right portable toilet and toilet accessories is a topic of great interest for any budget friendly DIY Sprinter conversions. CD and I agreed not to add plumbing to our Sprinter. This meant no toilet and no indoor kitchen.
In terms of toilet solutions, it seems like we have tried it all. Our kids outgrew their training potty somewhere between the midwest and a highway off-ramp in rural Oregon. We felt both lost and excited. It was time for an upgrade.
The first stop on our next road trip was Cabela’s camping section. Portable camping toilets are not only surprisingly pricey but also in high demand.
It was mid-June and the selection was limited. We bought the Reliance Fold-to-Go. The whole thing folded flat and slid under the kids seat. I admit that this product and I got off on the wrong foot. I pinched my finger on its initial opening. It had three legs that needed to be unfolded and extended for use. If we were parked on a hill or using it on gravel, the toilet was tippy and unbalanced.
Picture a three year old on a three legged potty chair and you can imagine my feelings towards the Fold-to-Go.
After much discussion and extensive consultation with strangers, we set our sights on the Luggable Loo. Once armed with our new Loo, we started the search for the perfect accessories. By accessories, I don’t mean toilet seat cushions or fancy toilet paper holders, I am referring to bags and powder.
CD and I have half joked that future generations will be left with little plastic bags of dog poo time capsules. I wasn’t about to contribute to that situation. We jumped right into the world of biodegradable bags.
These products aren’t terribly cheap and it is certainly in everyone’s best interest to use these products sparingly. With that being said, we also didn’t want to get stuck without a plan when the situation called for a plan!
Some tips regarding biodegradable bags:
- They breakdown if they are left in the sun, are wet, or are old.
- They work just as well as non-biodegradable bags
- We use them because they work and we can tolerate ourselves better when using these than when using other bags
Just to finish off the uncomfortable topic of camping toilets. Don’t forget the Poo Powder! Enjoy!
