Floor Hatch/Chemical Potty
We got a lot of questions from people who can't quite
picture how the floor hatch and porta-potty works. A picture is
worth a thousand words, so here's four thousand words worth!
A view of the 8' Cubby with the 4" mattress in
place, sleeping position (the 10' Comet is the same)
The porta-potty sits on the lowered deck, allowing
you to use it while sitting straight up. It can be braced in this
position during transit to allow "pit stops". At night, it
is removed either to a dome tent, your vehicle, or, if you're out in the
wilderness, just outside.
We highly recommend the Thetford electric-flush porta-potty. It doesn't smell at all, is easy to empty, and
with the addition of that wonderful blue stuff, is way better to use than
those nasty campground pit toilets! This setup has been wife-tested
