"septic system safe" is not the same as "designed for RV and Marine toilets" IMO.

I've never ever bought a roll of special toilet paper, never will. Just regular TP.

I've not had a stopped up sewer tank, pipe, etc. Been more than more than 20 years Airstreaming.

If toilet paper is causing a problem, it is because not enough water is being put into the tank.

add edit:
If I was using a macerator pump and small discharge hose, I might change my mind.

Me either. In over 30 years of camping, never had a clog.

I'm not towing around a 4 ton trailer and using public bathrooms because I'm afraid to use the head. And no, my trailer does not smell like @#$%.

Sorry, but that is about as nuts as using sleeping bags instead of high end sheets and a decent wool blanket.

I just don't get it.:roll eyes:

Oh, yes, another vote for Scotts one ply RV TP. Does the job pretty well for a one ply and so far no clogs.

I think it has made the atmosphere much more pleasant inside, the dumping of the black waste less "black", and much reduced the use of TP. Either there is a campground toilet, or a convenient tree and a GI shovel/hoe to bury the evidence.

Septic safe paper user here simply because it is what I use at home. I always add water before a trip and top it off before dumping. Never had a issue.

I can't imagine having a toilet and trying to not use it in favor of squatting over a hole.

I'm with A W Warn. Only rv paper I used was the stuff I got with the trailer. Been at a couple of RV shows where they showed the water test and good old Kirkland did better than the special RV stuff. Was told then that if you use a bit more water each time, and wait till the tank is full before opening the dump valve to empty, you won't have a problem. So far in 22 years, no problem.
And no the folks doing the tests weren't selling anything.

To answer the question you actually asked -

Yes, a few people have installed bidet toilets in Airstreams.

the SEARCH function here isn't fantastic, but there are ways to make it easier. Click on SEARCH and mouse down to the GOOGLE function then figure out a good text string to get a reasonable number of responses... I'm trying "bidet toilet"

http://www.dometic.com/USA/Search/#?&q=bidet toilet

so... that's just a START. Happy hunting.

Hi, with single ply toilet paper you need to use twice as much, so you might as well use two ply. I do.

I started Airstreaming in 1978. I have used whatever paper I had on the shelf in the house. I can't tell you any brand, I have used dozens and dozens over the past 38 years. I have never had a clog, or a problem. That includes when I occasionally used a macerator and a 75 foot hose to dump the tank. Oh, well once, but that was when a friends bimbo put a plastic tipped cigarillo down the toilet. I let him deal with it. I was a happy camper, but he wasn't.

Oh, I very rarely use anything but my Airstream toilet when out camping. I probably average 50 to 60 nights a year in it.

The Thread of the Day

Always something interesting on the forum every day. I nominate this to be the 'must read' thread of the day.

As for TP, we use the stuff that's so thin, it has only one side.

In the last ten years, we have spent over 1800 nights in our old Sovereign. Have always used "any brand" single ply. Never had any trouble with clogs.

And yes, we use our toilet as intended--I can't imagine using public facilities by choice or burying my waste...
