Looking for the best toilets for campervan conversion or upgrade? These are our top 6 picks for great campervan toilet options in 2024!
It’s not a fun topic to discuss. But when you plan on living in a campervan for any amount of time, the decision of whether to add a toilet to your van, RV or trailer is a pretty important one to make.
When evaluating the pros and cons of toilets for campervans, you have to consider more than just the toilet itself. Will you add a plumbed flushing toilet?
If so, you’ll need to modify your van’s water system to account for both running water and a small waste tank to collect it. If not, will you use a portable toilet that you have to empty regularly?
Or maybe a composting toilet that separates the solid waste from the liquid? Be sure to account for mountains of kitty litter or cedar shavings and have to take a look at your #2 in a plastic bag or container as often as you empty it.
And then, of course, there is the idea of no toilet at all where you contain your bathroom breaks to pit stops in gas stations and restaurants as you travel or a nice hole in the ground in the middle of the woods.
To complicate things, there are those of us out there with gastrointestinal diseases (we travel full-time with Crohn’s Disease) where there is no decision about whether or not to have a toilet. Instead, the decision was made about which type of toilet fit our lifestyle, space and budget.
But enough of the toilet talk! Or, rather, let’s get started with more toilet talk by sharing our top pick for our campervan toilet and why we thought it was the best for any van build.
