We have one of these and have had to guy it down several times, but it’s easy. The top is open which is good in one way and bad in another

Good: it’s great for showering, no condensation
Bad: if it Rains anything in it’s not protected (including you sat on the loo

It’s too tall to fit under the roll out awning. At festivals we often have it by a side door for our driveaway awning.

Mostly we use it for showers, but haven’t bothered with it for a while as have tended to create a shower area in the driveaway awning tunnel with some shower curtains that can be tied back when not in use.

One good thing about it Is it’s pop up and once you get the hang of it you can pop it up and down very quickly (packs really flat too).
What do you use for a shower and I assume you just end up with a bit of wet grass in the Tunnel?

We use a Porta Potti inside for desperate kids During the night. We push the drivers seat as far forward as possible (not rotated) and put it in the doorway. First thing that goes outside when I open the sliding door in the morning.

Following this thread with interest. I took the opportunity this week as it was my wife’s birthday and our joint wedding anniversary to treat her to the purchase of a porta potti.
Surprisingly, she is far from enamoured with this token as a celebration of our union or her celebrating 45 years on this mortal coil, and although I have assured her that the criteria for 14 years of wedded bliss was “ Ivory “ and that is ( nearly) the colour of her new accessory , she doesn’t consider the cubed plastic pot as an adequate gift. Hopefully if I take the above advice re a tent to house her prezzie will cheer her up a bit. Thanks

Hahaha, good luck with that one
Your mistake was making it a birthday / wedding anniversary present.
I’m a bloke and even I can see this going down like a lead balloon. All her friends asking “and what did hubby buy you...........?”

At least the tent will give you somewhere to sleep until she calms down.

That’s a really good price - think I paid £90 for the pot alone ( because she’s worth it...) with no chemicals.

She got a chocolate orange, and a bottle of cherry gin too!
One thing I’ve learned after 14 years is not to set her aspirations too high ( it’s really not that hard being married to me!)
I’m also currently trying to find ways to persuade her that a big solar panel is either an “essential family purchase” or a handy Father’s Day present ....

We don't do presents anymore, saves on the disapointment.

You are not alone. We keep ours inside.
Does this work with downstairs bed in position? Is there room? Looked like it might be a bit tight. I bought a posh loo tent and will post a review when its unpacked!
In an Ocean, if the downstairs bed is rolled out And the seat in front of the “kitchen” is fully towards the front there’s just enough Room for a thetford cube.

You can use a small blow up paddling pool for a shower tray. We now use a Lakeland oven rack soaking tray. No chance of punctures and is good for cleaning the dog too. It’s really handy at home too.

Nice to hear from you again Elly.
Hi Karlos. Not been around in the forum lately. Back in Cali mode now though. Went for a drive and chill out to a local country park on Wednesday (my day off from working at home). It would normally be Nanny Elly day with our little granddaughters (so miss that) but just me, hubby and the dog. Back to thinking about getting out in the van now.
