Default PETT Toilets?

Anyone interested in these: http://www.trdparts4u.com/PD-D115SYB.aspx?MakeID=1

They were offering free shipping for 2 days last week, but I didn't see it until tonight. http://forum.ih8mud.com/%2A%2A-ih8mu...days-only.html wonder if they'd extend that for a little group purchase? Is $239 a good deal for these (with tent)?


don't start, Jeff.


edit: oops, this should have been in chat, sorry.

I could see this being handy for the Rubicon trip.

Maybe we should each pitch in $30 and buy 2 of them. That's probably more than we'd need to make sure everyone had plenty of time on the crapper, right?

I'm in. I like Farnham's Wag Bag idea too.

Sounds like a good deal and better than putting your...umm...well you know what in the spare tire


Seriously though, I bought one of those last year for CM07. With three ladies in my group it seemed more of a necessity than a nice to have for them. I've had the tent open once, in the family room, and the girls thought it made a great play house

We never put the tent up at CM07, but the ladies used the toilet each day. We just went around a hill or behind the bushes etc to set it up. They used the toilet on the Spooky Night run as well.

With just guys out on a day trip I wouldn't see the value. But for say the Rubithon, hunting, long trip, or when the ladies are with you it would be handy to have both the tent and the toilet if you can set it up for longer than say your average CM lunch stop.

The toilet isn't terribly sturdy but decent for what it is. The whole package (toilet, tent, wag bags, etc) fits into a large backpack setup about 4' high or so.

Doesn't the club have a toilet or two already for CM? All you'd need is a tent then (like Romer's shower tent) and you'd be set.

Anyway, I planned to bring mine on the trip for my pilot and I but others are welcome to use it. You'd just need to buy some wag bags and clean up after yourselves


FWIW I bought it last year from http://www.outbacktoilets.com/ which IIRC was/is affiliated with Roundeyes and who folks said we should support

There was a mini discussion last year about these vs. say the cardboard box toilet and bucket toilet (on the same site). Personally, if I'm doing my 'bizness in the great outdoors I like a little privacy so I went with the tent setup . Haven't used it myself yet.

I bought the older version on ebay for $189 last year. The norcal uys recommended it and its what the FEMA guys use in the field.

With girls coming on trips. seems like a requirement for me.

I use a PETT toilet and a TravelJohn enclosure from RoundEyes (I would recommend another brand). RoundEyes replaced the TJ enclosure no questions asked BTW, when a pole or two snapped due to a friend helping collapse it.

It rocks when hunting. The PETT with WAG bags goes in the truck, and a 5-gal. bucket and trash compactor bags (very thick, tear resistant ) with kitty litter and a cheap plastic seat go in the enclosure in hunt camp. Doubles as a shower enclosure.

Won't go back. Great system. Esp. the kitty litter, works better than I would've thought. Sprinkle when 'done'.

I'd throw in for the Rubithon trip (I was planning on the 5 gallon bucket and kitty litter method, so this is a step up no doubt). What happens with it when we're done? Maybe we could just give it to the club?

And then we still have to figure out what to do with the toilets!
