Question What portable toilet has the biggest seat and bowl?

What PortaPotti / Camco portable toilet (or similar) has biggest seat and bowl?

I’d much prefer a manual one, not a battery operated pump such as the 550E Curve.

I dont want a WagBag or similar.

The Leopard Outdoor T-Type Three Directional Flush Portable Travel Toilet - 5.3 Gallon - is pretty well rated on Amazon, except some people complain that the bowl is too small. (a common complaint on reviews of various portable toilets)

We’ll need to move it from the truck camper out to a ‘toilet tent’ frequently, so easy to move around would be good.

Any suggestions?

Thanks.

Thetford 550 has worked well for us.
Bowl is not huge but it has handled whatever we have challenged it with.

Happy Bowl liners!!!

Have a look at the Dometic 970 series too. I don't have experience with the others mentioned, but the Dometic has been working well for my family and nobody complains about having to use it. Seat height is about the same as a standard toilet, it has a manual pump that's good for a few flushes before needing to re-pressurize, and it holds 5g too.

The Camco 41544 is a decent size.

I'm mainly interested in load capacity.

The Thetford Curve is often regarded as the most comfortable seat/bowl configuration.

The Curve, along with the Thetford 550 and Dometic 976 all hold around 5-5.5gal.

thanks

it is just too bad that The Curve has that horrible and failure prone electric pump

and i'd need to order a manual pump from the UK from the get go.

BTW does anyone have an amazon.co.uk link to said manual pump? I looked and could not find it.

thx

Couldn't you just purchase the whole unit with manual pump?

Hi Greg - I could - but that is being sold from Amazon Global Store UK - so shipping is $98

I think it would be a little cheaper to buy the basic one in the USA, then have the manual pump shipped from UK. Perhaps cheaper.

thanks tho.
