RB.... methinks we are thinking differently. I was just thinking... a funnel and a very long length of 10mm pipe .... discretely positioned somewhere externally in some bushes that people don't go. You wouldn't even have to get out of bed!....
Best regards,

Hahahahaha ...

Last time I had something like that, it was in hospital ... Fortunately, there was no funnel used! .

I really like the Innovan and have been watching them for years; if I had a single cab then I would probably have had one for a few years now. I don't like towing but could almost be convinced to have the trailer version!

Nah, the best is the towbar-crapper. There's even a patent (US of course) for it, while there's also a commercial product. And there's another version that is just the seat, BYO shovel - not intended for long stays ...

Do not forget to get the t-shirt, too, it is only 14.95!

Thank you all for your various replies.
However to reiterate.
I DON`T want to tow anything.
I don`t have a problem with tenting and bush crapping etc but my (much) better half does.
I carry a shovel/spade anyway when in the bush.
A solar shower is fine for me and will most likely be for her too.
So looks like an Innovan but what twin cab ute.
A Land Rover 130 inch wheelbase flatbed perhaps.
However having owned two LR`s in the past I just hope they are a bit more reliable these days.......

As an addendum many years ago I saw an old Landy which had just crossed the Sahara and it had, bolted and hinged to a rear quarter panel, a wooden toilet seat.
Struck me as a good idea for those (very) out of the way places......

An Innovan won't (legally) fit on a twin-cab will it? Single cab; perhaps King cab.

Hi Kevin,
The chassis will need lengthening by perhaps 500 mm. Hence the LR idea.
