Folding Toilet Models Are Ultra Compact Camping ToiletsAmong all the various camping toilets currently on the market, the folding toilet offers the ultimate compact solution. None of the other types of camping toilets can be stored or transported quite as easily as these camping toilets. Folding toilets are available in several different sizes and shapes. Some of the simple versions are really more like folding camp chairs (but with a hole in the middle, of course :) while others are a little more sophisticated, like the PETT toilets which can be folded easily and stored simply in a briefcase. The models that are available in these toilets can usually be used with disposable toilet bags or liners which make them quite hassle free and offer a sanitary solution.

Unlike most bucket toilet and portable flush toilet designs, folding toilets are available in taller heights which can be beneficial to those of us with temperamental backs and bad knees.
