I guess the only "advantage" I see is the ability to dump urine in any regular public toilet and dispose of solid waste in any dumpster, and the increased "grey water" capacity. I would have to do two toilets in my 364 so I'm not sold on the idea. I just wanted to see if anyone had actual experience to share that may shed light on an unknown/seldom used option.....

I'm not sure that placing human excrement into dumpsters would be looked upon favorably by the general public or dumpster owners, composted or not.

I'm beginning to lean toward cutting the center out of a camp chair, a shovel, and a tarp for privacy. In all seriousness, there is a following for compost toilets, but it won't be a path I'd follow. Poop is poop and having to keep solids and liquids separate, dispose of your paper in an alternate manner, and promenade thru your RV with it in hand on your way to dump it just leaves me scratching my head as to why. Your RV already has tanks setup for your bodily needs. I've never had and issue with using the stinky slinky ... it's just part of owning an RV and I think it's pretty darned handy. I'll not try to save the world here one "movement" at a time.

I have a great idea!
You can use the coconut coir to 'wipe', you don't have to worry about smelly paper and it will also help the composting process.

I thought this whole idea was a joke when I watched the video. I have no problem with my black tank. Is this just more of the nutcase "green" garbage we always have pushed at us? Is dumping human crap into a dumpster really better than having it go through the advanced technology sewage treatment plant? I doubt it. This thread was amusing, but a waste of time. Sorry for the negativity.

I'm betting they got the toilet installed for free, made the videos, and then they get a "residual" payment every time someone clicks on the videos.

Here ya go dieselguy, just put a tarp over the bumper dumper. BTW, this is a real product and not a joke either.

I can attest to this... We had one mounted on one of our work trucks on the front bumper... Had to remove it because it offended people... But it works well.

How would you like to have the next ressie on that campsite?

Nutcase? How is being green nutcase? Bet you love your "Green" LEDs

The point being missed by everyone here is the Wynn's are huge fans of what they call "Wild" Camping (we call it boondocking)

Their composter is a means to a end - being able to stay off the grid for as long as possible (you should see their solar setup! They can even run an A/C on it for limited periods...now THAT is off the Grid!)

You mean like baby diapers?

Or some campers who insist on bagging used toilet paper and putting it in the dumpster rather than in the holding tank?

Composted feces are not dangerous and in fact can be used to fertilize non-ingestible plants.

You DO realize a lot - if not the majority - of campgrounds are on septic systems?

Sorry you wasted your time. I found it rather enjoyable
If you really want a education, go here:
Nature's Head User's Guide - Composting Toilets

Now, having said that, would I use a composting toilet? No. But it is a lifestyle choice and folks should be able to so choose without being labeled a "nutcase"
