Dry Flush?

Hello fellow ĎStreamers.
After taking a few year hiatus from exploring the roads via our airstream we are back. After selling our Ď28 FC Airstream five years ago to explore boating and some international travel we are back to the roads in the US with a soon to be acquired Basecamp 16X this coming October.

Since this is brand new we have an opportunity of breaking in the tanks and keeping the gray/black as only a gray. My concern is capacity of the combo tank and the unpleasant task of visiting a dump station more frequently.
Has anyone modified their Basecamp by removing the toilet and installing a dry flush system?
This is the system used by Happier Campers and appears to have a lot of benefits if you donít mind the $1 per flush cost.
Here is a great video of it in action...

Thank you all for all the sharing you do as a community.

Taking the plunge

Well Iím taking the plunge (hopefully not the plunger) and have ordered the
Laveo system
The dealer has never done this install and tried to steer me to the Natures Head composite toilet. That didnít have the same appeal.
If anyone is interested I could keep the coo up itís posted. The biggest benefit is we will now have a 24 gallon gray water tank rather than a black/gray tank.

Would love to see a pic of it installed, including how any wiring was run to it. I'm considering a 16BC, but really want to try to fit a composting toilet in the head. A dry flush would be my backup plan.

I have that toilet in my ‘67 Caravel. It works fine with no smell. Expect no more than 10 flushes per cartridge. Have plenty of spares on hand when traveling. I carry cat litter in a small water bottle to add to the toilet if just helps it “flush” better.

Schu, just wondering how the conversion went, or if you decided against it?
