Hi Everybody,

I have a situation where I'm looking for an RV, but I mostly just need it for a home building situation. Having sleeping room isn't so much a need but looking for something small that has a basic toilet and tank.

Really open, truck camper, towable, you name it. Just trying to find something lower budget I might be able to use for our construction site as most rentables are toilet or shower, not both. I would like both if possible, but would like something a little more normal that a Johnny pot if possible.

If anybody out there has any notion or recommendations I appreciate the reply.

Thanks for reading.

Question: Do you have a place to dump a black tank? Or a service to get it pumped out? The latter could get expensive.

You could look for a used travel trailer, small and cheap. Even if you don't have a truck to tow it, you could get someone to move it and park it for you. That is likely the least expensive option. Just beware of anything that smells musty or has obviously delaminated sides. Those are signs of water intrusion and therefore rot.

Hi
Not sure what your " low budget " is, or where you are in Tennessee, but here's a really nice little trailer close to the Tn/Ky border.

2002 Pioneer

According to NADA, he's asking about $1000 too much, so maybe you can do some negotiating.

Go on craigs list and look for "hunter specials". Should be some popping up this time of year.

Pretty much all small TT will have a bathroom. If you don't want the bed, rip it out and put in a desk or whatever.

As others have said, you need to figure out how to empty the tanks.

I think they are called "Port-A-Potty"

Just secure it to the bed of your truck!

Scour your local Craigslist classified and take your pick of what meets your needs.

Very handy while sitting in a traffic jam for hours and hours !

That's an interesting option, can it be used while in motion ?
If so , is there a speed limit of 65 mph ?

It can be used in motion only if that special toilet paper for RVs is used. Otherwise traffic might get clogged up.
