Author: Tahlia Maynard   Date Posted:26 September 2016 

As living creatures, going to the washroom is an inevitable part of daily life. While most of us have the ability to use standard bathrooms at home, caravan camping can be a little bit different. Depending on where you’re camping, you may not have access to regular toilet facilities, being forced to come up with your own solutions.

Many camping enthusiasts choose to invest in a portable toilet for their camping adventures. These convenient products take the stress out of locating a washroom during long road trips or off-the-grid adventures. Because there are numerous brands and styles of portable toilets available, choosing one can be a tedious task for a new consumer. Caravan RV Camping, Australia’s leading online superstore, has provided the following few paragraphs as an overview of Thetford’s luxury porta potti line: Thetford Excellence.

If you’ve been in the market for a high-end portable toilet, read on to see why Caravan RV Camping recommends the Thetford Excellence line above all the rest.

The Thetford Reputation

Firstly, Thetford is Australia’s main provider of mobile sanitation products. The vehicles they cater to include everything from boats and trucks, to caravans and RVs.

Thetford has often been praised for being able to successfully predict market needs, creating stylish and innovative products that answer the demands of their consumers in unique ways.For the most part, however, Thetford’s lines of high-quality portable toilets is what makes them stand out above the rest. These two lines are the Thetford Qube models and the Thetford Excellence models.

Thetford Qube and Thetford Excellence: What’s the Difference?

As previously mentioned, Thetford’s Excellence porta pottis are considered Thetford’s high-end, luxury-branded models.  These portable toilets include features such as increased comfort ratings, larger sizes, and more advanced flushing mechanisms.

The Thetford Qube line, on the other hand, is made up of a variety of more “basic” portable toilets, with unique models intended to fit a vast array of consumer needs. Although this article will be focused mainly on Thetford’s Excellence line, additional information regarding Thetford’s Qube models can be located here.

Thetford Excellence Features

Firstly, there are two different Thetford Excellence styles:

It should be noted that the electric Thetford Excellence porta potti is Thetford’s only electric portable toilet. 

However, if you disregard the two different flushing systems, both Excellence models are pretty much the same.

As mentioned, both Excellence porta potti models are considered Thetford’s “luxury” models, featuring increased comfort ratings, larger sizes, and better flushing systems than those attributed to the Thetford Qube line. 

While the largest Qube model (the Qube 365) has a seating height of 408 mm, the Excellence models surpass it with a seating height of 435 mm, making them the tallest porta pottis offered by Thetford.

Another main difference between the Qube and Excellence lines is the added flush water tank level indicator, a feature that has uniquely been integrated into Excellence lines.

Lastly, Excellence models have an extremely pleasing aesthetic, offering stylish design features such as a “more homelike toilet shape”, and various other convenient add-ons, such as an integrated toilet paper holder, convenient cover controls, and improved carrying handles.
