I really like our West Marine branded unit. The girlfriend refuses to use it. Emptying it certainly is a few seconds of unpleasantness, but I think it's worth having it. Ours lives in a cabinet right behind the driver's seat which is a good spot for it in the EB10 layout.

We have the Curve model and like it. It travels in a cabinet by the barn door. It comes out at night and lives between the drivers and passenger seats. Like many others here we use ours in the middle of the night. The rule is to only for #1. I find it is light outside then it is a trip to the outhouse or cat hole. I have a harder time picking up dog poo than emptying the port a potty.

I always like the fresh air option.
Does this make me a DUMP truck?

We use ours every trip but have yet to "drop a deuce" in it. Never heard of Happy Bowl liners so I'll need to look into that. Sounds like they would solve a nagging question I've had about using the porta potti for #2's.

We "prepared" ours to take on our maiden 3-week road trip, and used it a handful of times while bookdocking or when the bathroom lines at Yellowstone were too long. But I dread using or emptying it so much, we've never touched it again. It still lives in the shower compartment in case of emergency, but now I seem to pick campgrounds based on bathroom availability. I guess I'm too spoiled by flush toilets.

They are a must for #2!

Some good hints in here! Not sure I'm totally sold on it yet, but we'll see. We have Curve model. Biggest problem is lack of a good place to use it in the van due to our layout.

We both much rather use our own toilet then a public one. Also great for when camping with our grand daughters. Our through isle layout was partly configured with a bathroom in mind. Absolutely no regrets and most women like privacy not a toilet setting in an isle. Left those days behind when we gave up tent camping and build a camping van.

I own one, and have used it on one trip where there was really no other option. Didn't love using it or dealing with it, but I'll bust it out again if I really have to, I won't let something like that keep me from camping somewhere pretty.

I can't see bothering with it for liquid only. Generally you can find a place to go outside without too much trouble. If you're desperate to keep on moving, I could see carrying a pee jug, like the setups you'd deal with in a 3-6 seater aircraft. They are a bit simpler for boys than girls, but solutions exist for both. Not sure I'd dump them out the window like you might in plane though.
