Yep there you go!!!

We use whatever we want. Northern from home or cheapo from Dollar store. Never a clog problem.

You are correct but it happens because I have a wife, a teenage daughter, typically one of her friends or two and whoever makes their way to my campfire from time to time. I always ensure at least a few gallons of water are I the tank shortly after setup. Next I throw some of the ďHappy CamperĒ or blue pack in there. What happens next is out of my control. Best I can tell is one of the above culprits unwinds half a roll per use. After the pyramid incident I abandoned my fancy paper for the Thetford, which is great in its own right, but itís no Charmin. Havenít had an issue since. I donít mind the cost. Like someone else posted, just because it goes down your tank fine doesnít mean itís good for the campgroundís septic. And using a ton of water just means eventually rates will rise or campgrounds will start charging for water. To each his own but Iím sticking with RV specific paper.

There is so much bs these days! Don't bother with that stuff. Probably born of people who are trying to make sure their holding tank registers correctly and that it is as clean as acbaby's butt after dumping.

It's a hoax.

If you have to worry about the price of RV toilet paper, I would question if you can or should afford to be vacationing/camping in the first place! Look how much money you are saving over the alternatives of hotels, time shares, or cabin rentals and buy the RV TP.

Just because you can afford to pay for the higher priced RV paper,,, over single ply @ the grocery store,,, does not mean you should throw your money down the RV Throne !!!

Well, RVing is not cheaper, if you are honest in your analysis.

People RV for lots of reasons, and not having to sleep anywhere except in their own dirts is one of the biggest reasons. Who wants to sleep in dirty-butt motels and hotels, and high price ones are no cleaner than the less-expensive ones. RVing is an alternative that is simply very attractive for people who can afford it. Another reason people like it is the snob appeal associated with "the way I do it". For most people if the are honest find it the funnest, but most exasperating, because of the stuff that quits working, or never does actually work right, family togetherness experience you can have.

Two issues with the 'RV toilet paper' available...

1) Very expensive for what you get...

2) It's like wiping your booty with sandpaper...just love that feeling!

Want to make sure there is no "poop peak" in your Black Tank, get one of these:




Every day or so just stick it down the hole and give things a stir. TP will dissolve and anything that was solid will now be liquid.

This conversation regarding TP is getting old so I though I'd stir things up.

Don't laugh. Had a friend who did essentially that. Owned a camping site so far out in the boonies it was just beyond the last power company pole.

He dug a hole about 6-7' deep and then stacked old truck tires on top of each other until they were about a foot below the surface of the ground. Put a steel plate on top of the tires, torched a hole in the plate. Backfilled level with the ground only left a 3" pipe sticking out. Looked just like a connection to a septic tank. Last I heard it was still working just fine, kind of like an outhouse only without the cold, bugs, and stench.

You can buy a case of Scotts RV toilet paper on Amazon for less than a dollar a roll.

For those who worry about their tanks and TP, why not just use the campground facilities. You've already paid for the TP they provide in your "fee".

Just use the on board facilities for the midnight need to make your bladder gladder.

Isn't that the same as asking why we don't use plastic milk jugs and Hefty bags in pails instead of our own built-in RV facilities?

I'm not tenting anymore...

I kinda bought an RV where everything works so I can use it...all of it!

Just because I can use E85 fuel in my truck...does that mean that I am stupid because I don't?

I tried it...and didn't like it.

So we need to think about a few things (like toilet paper) when we RV...big deal!

What about all of the other krap that people spend money on for their RV's that many think is needless...but others continue to purchase anyway?

Why not spend some of those pennies on at least a good toilet paper that will breakdown and not clog up a campgrounds' septic or sewer system after we leave "with no problems"?
