Wag bags

I am a newbie in cold weather and don't want to dewinterize for a weekend trip.
Has anyone found a good brand of bags to use in the toilet when using the Airstream as a tent?

Go Anywhere bags are the new name for Wag Bags. However they are expensive and I prefer to use my own bags and some "Poo Powder" - both available at WM.

Small/medium garbage bags, for example.

We just used our trailer and didn't want to de-winterize it either. I was unable to talk my wife into using a wag bag or any similar such thing. So we simply kept a jug of RV antifreeze in the shower and whenever we used the toilet we used the antifreeze to flush it. Of course that meant having to dump the black tank on the way home but that wasn't a big deal.

Your black tanks need more liquids than solids to empty properly. In warmer weather the water and enzyme additives will help to liquify the solids, but the small quantity of RV antifreeze you are using won't do that. You also won't be able to use the black tank flush at the dump station. As a result you may end up with the dreaded "poo pyramid".

You are absolutely correct. What I failed to mention is that we don't put "solids" in the toilet during the winter. We are at that age where we have to dispose of "liquids" on a frequent basis however so using the RV antifreeze during the night works well for us.
