Thanks everyone.
That is a "slim, elegant" design? It holds the compost in a bin under the bus? Why is it so big? If it is porcelain, it must be ridiculously heavy. I'm sorry, but to me it looks no more "beautiful" than any other dump pot.

i am still thinking that if i decide to take my dumps with me as I travel, I will make a simple squatter stand, a short cone-tube, open at the top for a toilet seat, wider at the bottom, like an outhouse, with the bin under the bus. But I don't want a 2' diameter hole in my floor like that, so.....I will continue digging holes in the woods for a real composting toilet, a bucket with a sealing lid, or use a toilet in a truck stop if I'm on the road.

I also looked at yacht hatches. Over $700, maybe $1000 for a nice 24"x24". I will "manufacture" my own, and have the pride (or complaints of junk) for myself.

Funny how yall are so passionate about how you carry pooo around. Personally I have never had a black tank and never will but for some people they wouldn't live without a flush toilet ( Or their significant other cant?) Just glad there are so many options available and another beautiful thing about building your own bus is you can have it the way you want not the way joe shmo built it for Mercedes

So far 9 pages and 84 posts about being "Hoity Toity".

So as of yet have we figured out the real "PooP about composting toilets?

That’s not what this thread is about. Feel free to start your own that can go off topic immediately.

Yes. Nicely designed, porcelain ones. You’re more than welcome to read all the posts.

We've got limited experience, but I'll say that our Nature's Head has zero smell. Even the urine bottle isn't all that smelly, surprisingly. It's not the most comfortable to sit on but so far we're pretty impressed with our composting toilet.

That definitely fits in the hideous category.

At only $2500-$6000 the Numi is a bargain compared to a litter box.

Or maybe the Veil-

Not sure if anyone has solved your problem for you yet, but I'm using this British company. They will ship to the US and the total price including shipping is still less than a nature's head. And to my mind, this is a much more attractive option. Designed by a man who was living full time on a boat and had the same objection to the look of most composting toilets.

After spending hours looking over composting toilets, we're not sure sure it's right for us asthetically. We are putting a lot of work into making our bus look nice and a giant plastic bucket doesn't seem to fit in.


Has anyone come across a nice looking composting toilet?


The Ecoflo ones are ok. It's unfortunate that the Natures Head ones are speckled with another color because we could settle for one of those. We also found another one that looks great but it's almost $6,000 lol!

We did find a solution. It’s somewhere on this thread. I forget what it’s called. Thank you for the reply though! That toilet looks much better than others we’ve seen

For those that are interested, here's the Wostman we ended up going with.
