Yep, my trailer spends it's winters in Phoenix and lets me come down to visit. That way I don't have to worry about getting caught in an ice storm/blizzard traveling between CO and AZ. May pass you on the road as we are heading that way after the 1st as well.

And keep letting your mind wander over the keyboard!

As for this topic, I do know that age is fast becoming an invitation to seriously read about where the next bathroom may be located.
Was it Jack Nicholson's character in "The Bucket List" or "As Good as it Gets" who said, "Never pass a bathroom, never trust a fart, and don't waste an erection."

Try flying helicopters at Fort Walters, Texas near Mineral Wells for Primary Helicopter Flight School training for Viet Nam skids. Restrooms were far and few to be found in cattle country, but... there were no rules saying you could not land and take a "break". If someone became "air sick", that is what your hat was for. Saw plenty in the trash cans at some of the refueling stops... in the first two weeks of flight training.

So, if you cannot find a place to pull over, pull out with an Airstream... think of helicopter pilots who cannot just step back and find a convenient open door....

If you became lost... park it... and ask directions at any ranch house, or ask to us the phone to make a call. When you are 19 and turned loose in an area that is unfamiliar, it is amazing what you can do in the learning process of getting around. This works for an Airstream as well.

Every helo I flew in, (H3, SeaHawk, BlackHawk), with the exception of the H2 SeaSprite had relief tubes. To all the newbies we would tell them it was a intercom to the pilot....... It worked every time. Me included.

Why consider any restroom beyond the clean and safe one that you are towing? This is one reason to always depart with full water and empty black tanks.

My flying friend wishes today's airliner had something like that. The security procedures make going to the loo is such a bother now - he usually just holds it in.

Getting back to Airstreaming, using a public restroom on the road seems like a moot point. I love my road-cooked meals, bed, and bathroom!

Being of an age when the call of nature sounds more like the scream of a Sergeant Major on the parade ground, the on board facility is a welcome haven of rest when the high water alarm goes off.

I made a few trips before realizing the Rest Area was following me very closely. I will still stop at rest areas, in the truck side, but will relieve myself in my own facilities. We will walk our dog for exercise, for all of us will need to stretch our legs. If it is raining I will pull over and use the little hospital urinal while seated behind the wheel. Wife sits quietly to my right and comfortable with this approach, as a plan "B".

I have peed in the ditch or in an empty Dr. Pepper bottle. You do what you gotta do.
