Cassette Toilets

Found this site the other day. So far, best price I have found on Thetford cassette toilets. Toilet, Shower Pan, and Access Door for less than others want for just the toilet. Aprox $600 for the entire setup:

Anyone use one of these units? Pros, Cons?

They are easy to use, easy to install and reasonably priced. They are very popular in Europe. They maximise space. The toilet has its own black tank, the shower can be plumbed as grey water.

They require emptying frequently and the chemicals are not exactly cheap. The better ones require a large access hole cut in the exterior (to get the cassette out). Emptying is easy but you still have to do it every few days.

how and where do you empty a cassette toilet? im guessing you cant just go to a rest area and dump the cassette into a commode without creating a royal mess.. and they dont have a normal sewer pipe hook up like a black tank does..

Actually, you can do just that. You can empty them straight into any toilet on a mains sewer, and you wouldn't hurt a septic system much (if at all).

When you empty the cassette you simply rotate a spout, remove the cap and pour away holding an air-release button.

It's simple and clean.
