Why The Bowlus Has The Best RV Toilet | Bowlus

The Best RV Toilet In The World

The Best RV Toilet In The World

When Architectural Digest, The Wall Street Journal, and Forbes say, “you make the best travel trailer in the world,” it is only declared after an extensive review. To give you an idea, Dan Neil spent a full afternoon going over the Bowlus before he called it “The Ultimate Camper.” Despite the fabulous reviews, we find people often want to know more about our “mysterious” cassette toilet. So, let’s outline why the Bowlus is the best in the business (sorry, we couldn’t resist:).

Now, you might have noticed that RVs quickly typically develop an “odor.” The toilet system contributes to it, and it is quite frankly downright unpleasant. You may have also caught a recent negative review of cassette toilets online. We want to clarify that they are reviewing a “porta-potty,” not a “cassette toilet.”

While the reviewers confuse the two systems at Bowlus, where we live in specifics, with engineering and design focused on delivering a superior experience, it is a critical difference. We wish to explain why. We did extensive R & D when we decided to combine a cassette toilet with our special ventilation system. We can go on and on about the improved bowl geometry, seating height (and comfort), as well as a warning system that tells you when to empty. However, we’re going to focus on the ventilation system, which is similar to the activated sludge process used in sewage treatment plants that eliminate odors!

Now, if you ask a Bowlus owner or take a deep cleansing breath in an over five-year-old Bowlus, you’ll notice an absence of that “RV odor.” This is because the Bowlus uses a high-performance ventilator. When the toilet valve is open, slight negative pressure is created in the cassette allowing fresh air to be sucked into the system. New gases are removed from the toilet bowl, and odors are prevented from escaping from the tank. This increased supply of oxygen uses a precisely coordinated rotational speed. It accelerates the decomposition process of the tank contents to such an extent that the use of chemical additives isn’t necessary.

So, when you pull out the cassette (from the outside of the Bowlus) to empty into any toilet (how incredibly convenient and it is designed for no “splashback when emptying into a toilet” — there is no need for a traditional RV “stinky slinky”). The increased supply of oxygen guarantees optimal decomposition so that dumping is easy and comfortable. It’s so simple that you can even use your favorite toilet paper brand—none of that scratchy RV toilet paper for our owners. So, we ask you to remember that not all toilet systems are created equal.
