An Intimate Tour of 9 Kinds of RV Toilets (video)

This post may contain affiliate links.

Toilets and Black tanks may be dirty words to some, but in RV life it’s a regular topic of conversation! In our “Tour de Toilet” video, we check out 9 different kinds of RV toilets of our full-timing RV friends who show us their toilet, explain how it works, and share the pros and cons.

In this video, we cover a regular plastic foot flush toilet, composting toilet, porcelain foot flush with hand sprayer, electric toilet, wet bath, macerating toilet, vacuum-flush, cassette toilet and more. And no, this isn’t an ad for Thetford or Dometic, but they seem to be the two most common brands of regular RV toilets. We hope you enjoy the video, find it helpful in understanding the many options available out there and get a good laugh all the way through to the end.

Why a Video About RV Toilets?

Whether you’re shopping for an RV or simply wanting to get better acquainted with the different kinds of RV toilets available out there, you would think that an RV toilet would not be that complicated.  But we had the realization and reminder that others might be equally confused, or even intimidated by an RV toilet.  We have seen many different types of toilets in RVs.  But we didn’t remember seeing much in the way of showing people the different kinds and how they work.

It isn’t uncommon for conversations to shift to toilets and black tanks among RVers. So, we were confident that many of our RVing friends would be willing to participate in a fun video about RV toilets to help showcase the many different types.  We were right, and have put together a great video showing 9 different toilet types.  You won’t need to feel intimidated by any RV toilets after watching this fun, entertaining, and educational video.  We, along with the many other RVers, share pros and cons of their toilets. You can decide for yourself what features you might like in your future loo.

What types of Toilets are featured in the video?

We share 9 different RV toilets in this video. Foot pedal, macerators, vacuum flush, electric, wet bath, cassette and even composting toilets.  And, of course, other ‘regular’ toilets that are more commonly found in RVs.  If you haven’t already, click the video link above and enjoy your Tour De Toilets!
