Installing composting toilet

We have a 2016 Cedar Creek Silverback 33IK, we will be fulltimers in 16 more days. DW wants to swap out the existing toilet for a composting toilet.

Install looks to be fairly straight forward, not much too them. Anybody installed one have any thoughts on it?

We plan on getting the Natures Head toilet.

I've been watching some of the "Gone With The Wynn's" youtube stuff, they are real big on their's?

My wife is making noises that she would like one.

I don't care what you say -- they stink! I guess those who use them get used to the stench and don't notice it after a while. Me -- I can smell it as soon as the door opens on a unit with one.

Geee.... What a Great idea !!

Imagine all the storage space you would get by removing the black tank !

Why not just get a large pan and use 'Kitty-Litter' ?

Use the space to install a unit to recycle the grey water also and remove those tanks also.

traysurfer, as you can tell- you'll not get much useful information on these. The people who have installed them seem to love them. I have only been in one unit where it was added and that was a boondocker's dream Airstream (the guy completely rebuild everything from the frame up). That thing was amazing. For what it's worth, I didn't notice a smell nor would I have known it was a composting toilet if it wasn't for someone mentioning it.

I'm fulltiming (with my wife and 2 kids) also. I am curious as to the same that Old Coot asked - what are the benefits to going to one? What do you do with the compost when it's full?

I simply don't understand the composting toilet. How often do you have to dump the so-called compost and a bigger question I have is where do you dump it??

I had never heard of a composting toilet, but it seems like a unique idea.

Composting Toilet: What is it and Why you need one

I had a recirculating toilet in my Trailmanor, and I thought that worked great, but some owners hated them.
