I emailed EcoJohn last night and this is their reply, a bit high priced, and I asked them about anyone using it in an RV and that they didn't answer so I will have to call them and ask at some point. I did see the thread about the Sewer Solution and that sounds interesting, so what to do. Just trying to figure things out at this point.

SR SERIES – A Waterless Incinerating Toilet
The SR series have a few different models; one model that is ideal for low usage (SR5), and one model that can handle higher usage and a tougher environment (SR12). The SR5 models run on Propane, and the SR12 models use Propane, Natural Gas, or Propane as its fuel source. The Propane tank can be installed outside the building (a 20 lbs bbq tank or bigger sizes), or you can connect it directly with existing propane tank in the house if that is available.
The SR has a very unique design which makes it extremely easy to install, operate, and maintain. A major advantage with this unit compared to other composting and incinerating toilets is the efficiency and how clean it is. Since it burns all the waste immediately, there is no waste that is left inside the toilet that causes any bad odor. In addition, the toilet is equipped with a rinse button; by pressing it one can rinse water in the bowl/auger to ensure that it stays clean. As an option, we also provide bowl liners that can be placed in the bowl before usage. The water reservoir that is located inside the unit is easy to access when it is time for refill, and it holds ¼ gallon of water.
The SR toilet is extremely efficient and it eliminates any need for unpleasant waste handling; all the liquid waste, paper, and waste get incinerated into a very small amount of ashes which only needs to be emptied a few times per year. A built in circuit card monitors the incineration process and make sure that everything works as it should. Some great features with this unit is that it can handle multiple usages in a row, and it can handle colder climates; since its patented technology incinerates the waste in a burn chamber there is no risk of freeze ups or malfunctioning in colder climates.
Although the units use either Propane, Natural Gas, or Diesel as the fuel source, they also require a little bit of electricity. They can either be hooked up to 120V AC, or 2 x 12V DC batteries. If batteries are being used, we recommend to connect solar system to it, that will keep the batteries fully charged at all times.

The SR starts its incineration process immediately after each “flush”, but it will automatically shut down its process if someone uses it (if the lid is up, it will not burn). After the lid has been closed again, it will automatically pick up and finish the prior burn cycle. A short cycle (liquid) takes about 5-10 minutes, and a long cycle (waste) about 25-30 minutes.
cabins, guest houses, pool houses, commercial buildings, and mobile restroom trailers for work crews etc.
SR5-P12 $3,695 Operates on 12V DC and Propane
SR5-P120 $3,895 Operates on 120V AC and Propane
SR12-P120 $5,195 Operates on 120V AC and Propane

Depending where you are boondocking you could build your own outhouse. In the old days travellers dug a "gopher hole" for the gray water to drain into. A buried 45 gallon drum with axe holes in it makes an efficient cesspit. Many campgrounds used them for years with no problems in the old days.

Is this going to be on land you own? That would make it easier to add some permanent or semi permanent amenities.

Another thing to keep in mind is that a trailer takes quite a shaking up while on the move. Your fixtures must be built with this in mind. They must be sturdy and made to keep your things from being thrown around.

Living in the trailer park of sense, looking out the window at a tornado of stupidity.

Lightbulb Increasing your water capacity...

My wife and I have a 22 sport, and we prefer to be off the grid and away from the world whenever we have the opportunity. We have dual batteries and are considering the Honda 2000i generator just to have AC power occasionally, but the biggest issue is running out of water. Our AS has a 20 gallon tank.

We have found a relatively simple, and inexpensive solution. We carry four 7-gallon aqua-tainers from Reliance Products (Reliance Products - This is Our Environment) that we bought at Gander Mountain (Amazon also carries them) and a simple $2.00 flexible plastic funnel. It allows us to quickly refill our water tank, and they are easily filled at home and carried by one person. If 7 gallons at a time is too heavy (approx. 50 lbs.), they also make smaller sizes.

Out of curiosity, is anyone currently using a Honda newer 2000i generator? Are you happy with how quiet it is? Or any comments on comparable products?
