Make boom-boom the European way, mit die Defäkation Karton!
We’ve decided to sell our original-equipment portable chemical toilet with wooden cabinet. The previous owners seldom used it, and we never did.
Available only to those customers who picked up their new Vanagon Campers in Germany as part of VW’s tourist delivery program, the collectible cabinet boasts classic Westfalia design.
This authentic vintage gear features a sturdy plywood cabinet with the familiar Westfalia laminate finish, and a padded seat top upholstered to match the interior of your early Westy.
The combo is in excellent little-used condition, and makes for a great conversation piece in the campground and at VW camping events.
But das Poopen Baux is not just all show, and no ‘go’ …
The Westfalia toilet is a practical and convenient solution for the whole family, on long road trips far from home, and especially at night in a dark campground.
The enclosed portable Porta-Potti is a compact two-chamber toilet: open the lid and do yer bidness, pull the front handle to open the bowl valve, and give the unit a couple of flush pumps to rinse the bowl clean; then close the valve. Waste is collected in the sealed lower chamber, preventing odors. When full, simply empty into any campground toilet or sanitary station, rinse, and continue using! Refresh with common RV toilet chemicals available at any RV supplier.

When you don’t need a toilet for your trip, easily remove the entire combo for storage, or simply remove the toilet and just use the cabinet as a basic storage compartment with convenient padded seat top!
This particular unit came as original equipment with my 1983 Vanagon Westfalia. The original owners used the toilet only occasionally while they owned it, and we have never used it.
The cabinet is in excellent original condition, the laminate smooth and shiny, and is not scratched or scuffed. The fabric is clean, and the colors still vibrant and unfaded.
The toilet unit has been thoroughly cleaned and sanitized for your protection, and is fully functional. The edge of the toilet lid was once dropped and is missing a piece a few inches long; all pieces included so it could be repaired if desired (see photos).
The cabinet measures 20.5″L x 17″W x 12″H; the padded seat top is an additional 4″ high.
