We run an adventure travel business in Arizona, and I need suggestions on portable solutions for our guests. What are some good portable toilet chairs - primarily for our female guests that can be easily transported to our remote desert locations? Your help would be appreciated!

I've used this before


Snaps onto a 5 gallon paint bucket. Very useful for car camping away from established campgrounds. Steve

Hey Terry, Cabelas has this model:


The style that Steve is referring to works well but 5 gallon buckets are bulky and add to your load significantly when ya take into consideration the bucket, toilet seat "adapter", and bags.... Luggable Loo has the same basic design and they do work.

The model below is great, collapsible, inexpensive, and light. Ya just need waste bags. I would go with this... Just my opinion.


We have used this on hunting trips and to save on bags just double up on the ol plastic grocery store bag which makes it very inexpensive to use as well.

By the way, welcome to trailspace.

My high school girlfriend was an avid Girl Scout/hiker/camper. Her plan was to find a rock or tree trunk that she could sit on and then hang her haunches out behind it. Pretty good plan. I think it was passed on from generations of Girl Scouts that preceded her. Yes, the usual trowel etc.

My feeling is, if you take the kitchen sink or the bathroom toilet, it is no longer a remote location. Where's the adventure?

I guess I don't have a lot of patience with faux wilderness stuff. Do, or don't do, as Yoda said.

But hey, you gotta make a buck, I understand where you are coming from. Just wish you weren't pretending to provide remote desert experiences is all. Bad Karma dude.

I should sign this Crabby Jack instead of Brearnold. :-)

If one must have an appliance of some kind, a 5 gallon plastic bucket with the bottom cut out works fine.
