I would rather use my conventional toilet and visit the dump station on the way out.

+1. No interest in a composting toilet. We have plenty of water here in PA, and it's your friend. We have composting toilets in our State Parks and State Forest rec areas, and they're disgusting, to put it bluntly. I would never be so bold as to un-engineer what many RV designers (and users) have done before me. But good luck, keep us posted on how it turns out.

The longer it stays in the toilet, the more pleasant it is to empty as it turns to dirt. The urine can be dumped in a park toilet or I've read that it can be dumped on the ground where allowed and even better if diluted. It's a sterile liquid.

If you're going to use a compostable toilet please dispose of the waste properly. Compost materials, especially poop, does not belong in a dumpster. Setup a composting area at home and use the compost in a garden. Dispose of the liquid waste in a toilet or outhouse.

I just saw these on reruns of the show - Tiny Houses. they look interesting.

It seems like just a different type of work. Not much easier.
