Where it simplifies things is where I want the tub at there is no room for a waste tank unless I had a collector and a pump to move the waste water to another location. With a portable waste tank I can clean up inside if I wanted to and have that water go into the tank. Then I can get rid of that waste water at a proper location. I'd like to say f' it and let the wash water drain right out of the tub onto the ground but I think that is a no-no. There will be an outside shower as well. I want the side door to double as an enclosure.

So you will have to go out side, put the grey water tank under the amberlamps, hook up the portable grey water tank, take a shower, go back out side, unhook the tanks, put it back in its storage place, ahhhhh Wtf are you doing? Where are you putting this portable tank when in use and not in use? BTW, you collage of pictures might make sense to you, but not to anyone else.

Yes as that is by far the most simple answer. Why deal with more tanks and plumbing then I need. When not in use the tank could be stored inside the shower. As nothing other then soapy water will enter it. The shower isnt meant for extended use, as I won't have the reserves to allow that. More like get wet, soap up and rinse.

All the more reason to not have it inside. Just because there is a spot that is the perfect size for a fooze ball table doesn't mean you should put one inside. But whatever. This is all just mental maturbation anyway.

Dumb. If you honestly want to use this thing like a 4wd motorhome, you will find this plan to be a PITA. Many times while on the road or wheeling, we have taken quick showers to cleanup in places where it would be frowned on for setting up a tank underneath. Say......... a Walmart parking lot, rest area or someone's private parking lot.

The beauty and appeal of a home on wheels is the functionality and simplicity of having everything convenient. Not something that has to be treated as an erector set.

get a small 10 gallon black water tank for your toilet to go into with its own drain valve.
let all the grey water(shower/sink) go to a different drain valve with no tank.
it can go on the ground, or in your portable waste hauler.
a small 10 black tank can be mounted almost anywhere.
in my last truck camper, it was inside above the floor, toilet mounted to it.
ya you had to duck, head room was not great. it raised the toilet about 6 or 8 inches.
my wife and i could easily go a week, often 10 days, with a 10 gallon black tank.

or get a stand alone marine toilet.

many small pop ups, and small truck campers have no grey tank.
they let it go in a portable tank, 5 gallon bucket, or on the ground.

i would suggest a urinal that runs out on the ground too!
for longer stays in the back woods.
a marine toilet will fill up quickly if its your only option.

as long as you dont use formaldehyde in your tanks you can dump into your houses sewer clean out.
storm drains are a no no!

Don't forget the part where he forgets the tank is underneath and proceeds to run it over.

I think you should triple the amount of water storage you think you are going to need. What about mobile SAT TV?

These are all great ideas that Andy will not use when / if he ever gets to the point of actually having to cross these bridges. This has been proven over and over in the past. Andy asks for advice, then does what he originally wanted to anyway. We (5 of us) used to go for weeks on my sail boat with 2 x 12V batteries and a pump sink. We did have the big lake to shower in though. Andy, if you cant handle doing a little plumbing to make this thing functional, then I will hate to see the suspension, kitchen, important details when this project is "completed". I think I am going to join that other web site with the other expedition vehicles that you have your build thread in so I can rally them up too.

Not really no, I'm more into bigger numbers on my paycheck then the position.
