I think the ORIGINAL composting toilets that i remember were made for cabins.. they were large and had a chimney style vent.. and were permanently installed.. their design was to be l;arge enough that you cleaned them out from the bottom where you would have actual compost.. you pulled out only until it was no longer compost.. since they were flow-through cented the smell was nill.. the concept i suppose is similar for a camper but the timeframe till they are full or stink isnt anywhere close to composting time..

That makes sense.

I think the folk calling them "composting" today do it with the idea that the contents of the toilet will be periodically transferred to a composting pile to finish. The general consensus is that you need at least a year and most use this compost only on ornamental plants.
