DeanTherefore, for our expedition rig we intend to incorporate (or purchase) the system that ATW uses for their brand new Global Warrior. China toilet comfort, low water flush, macerator pump to a black tank of moderate size (22 gal.), and no messy gravity dump as a second macerator pump delivers waste to a leak proof cam-lock fitting. You connect a 35' flat hose that is housed on a simple reel (on which I intend to install) a ball-valve type hose end control so that we can dump at dump stations with ease, and at pit toilets as well. Should we choose to attempt to dump at places set up for cassette style dumping, we can pull out our own wheeled dump container and fill it in a controlled fashion from our system and wheel it just like a cassette into those places. I hope that our planned solution and methodology is a help for other traveler's.
No, I am not certain, however, the All Terrain Warriors U.S. website http://allterrainwarriors.com/products.html defines the Sportsmobile ATW approach as offering an 'Alpha' rig, which pictures the new GW, as well as their own design intended body, the 'bravo' edition. ATW Oz said that they are mirroring the internal molds for LH drive but time will tell as far as internal detailed component choices. Regards, DeanDean
You've been talking up your future purchase of a ATW Global Warrior lately.
Are you really certain Sportsmobile is going to use the EXACT same components as ATW?
I've used sawdust toilet and a variety of composting (really should be called "collection") type toilets for many years and there is a difference. The key is the urine diversion - with the normal sawdust / bucket toilet approach you need to add a lot of sawdust to absorb the liquids - with the air-head/natures-head/c-head urine diverting toilets the amount of sawdust or peatmoss used is much lower and there is a stirring device which is used to mix the solids with it to help with covering it - a crank handle is used.Since this toilet isn't composting the poop anyway, why not just build a simple sawdust toilet like the "Humanure" guy talks about that you can build for $50.00? Thats what I'm going to build for my rig.
