Aww, thanks so much!!! Why would I get flamed for it? lol
I figured once I start building it I'll be able to figure out a clever way to make the bucket and urine diverter and pipe fit. I figured I could cut into the bucket a little, no lower than the top of the fill line, to make space for the urine diverter within the top of the bucket, then the drain pipe would stand right in front of where the bucket sits. I think I'd set up a side door so I could pull the bucket out rather than up.
I mean, there's lots of ways I could configure this exactly, configuration isn't so important now until I have the bus and where I'm gonna put things and where I CAN with what's under the bus. For now, I wanted to ask yall if the concept was sound.

I mine, the urine diverter is above the bucket and the drain line runs down beside the bucket.
Thanks for that! I knew this mock up wasn't complete, I'll include traps and vents, I definitely want to avoid smells. And thanks for the link to a real urine diverter! I also found several funnels that are pretty big, but according to the voice of experience I might need a real diverter. The funnels I found that were cheaper were 8 inches in diameter. With the bidet attachment, a real diverter will probably be needed for correct use and not getting water in the compost.
In my concept for this toilet, I was trying to 'have it all': I've done lots of reading and a composting toilet seems like the cleanest way to deal with waste in a skoolie to me, but the urine diversion to the grey tank seems like a good way to deal with that rather than having to stealth dump everywhere. The bidet is supposed to be the most hygenic way of cleaning yourself, so I wanted to include that. But the urine diversion pipe should probably ideally be rinsed, so with the drain for the handwashing sink going to it, I thought that might help, while also saving clean water. Flushing a pipe with soapy water has to help! And it would also be further rinsed by the bidet. The final piece is a squatting pad, since apparently the way we sit when we poop kinks us up and makes it harder to 'go'. With the squatting platform, you poop better and wipe less, according to popular opinion.
So my concept was to create the ultimate green toilet! Poop healthy, wipe healthy, rinse pipes with water used to hygienically wash hands, further cleaning them with soap. Bing bang boom. Even the Prince would be impressed, surely?
