We want to install a Nature's Head composting toilet in our 23' 2008 International. Before I start taking things out: what is the purpose of this wood box between factory toilet and black tank? Is it simply to support toilet above the tank? Does the black tank extend up into this box? Photo attached (I think - yes! Twice!)

How large is your black tank?
The box may be hiding plumbing for the shower and/or sink.

In my trailer the box under the head is the blackwater tank.

Black water tank is 18 gallons. Yes, there is some plumbing running through that box to the shower. We would have to move or somehow cover those lines when we remove this box to install the composting toilet. But I'm hoping the black water tank itself is below floor level and we won't have to remove that tank.

If there plumbing in the box your tank is likely under the floor. The tank should be white. the will be a large pipe directly from the toilet to the tank.

Ah, yes, the large pipe which we can see when we open the toilet "flapper" valve and look down to the black water tank. That makes sense,thank you Sarah and Snowball. I'm going to go on that assumption unless I hear otherwise.
