Trelino's unbeatable advantages
Love this toilet! So glad I made this purchase, should of done it sooner!
I am so glad I purchased this toilet. The design is so simple yet so very good. There are no moving parts and It is very easy to clean. Each inside section has a lid to lock in smells and prevent spillage. It even has a soft close toilet lid. I like that the shape is square. The square shape makes it a great space saver for my Ford Transit Connect mini van conversion. I could not be happier.
Perfect fit for our storyteller in our Shuksan vans storage solution.
I’m not being sarcastic. This is the best, most convenient toilet. It’s so light, doesn’t use chemicals, and is environmentally friendly.
We were worried. We pulled our old RV toilet and put this in. We were conceded it would be smelly. IT IS NOT!!! Just follow the directions. It works. Seriously. It works.
I think the Trelino is just fantastic!! I use it in the basement and you cannot tell there is a toilet there. So it is great all around.
We had a Natures Head and were constantly fighting with the dump of the number 2 as had to lift the whole bottom of toilet, after removing the lid. Living on a sailboat space is limited and this was a chore. With the Trelino and the use of a bag it has changed our lives. No more dreading the number 2 change. LOVE OURS.
I have purchased and used the original S and L and recently the EVO S and L. The original look very cool and are very solid made (making them a little heavier than the EVO line. The EVO is by far the best portable toilet out there. It is still very well made, but significantly lighter than the original. Therefore, if weight is an important factor for you, you will love the EVO line. I can nothing but highly recommend it. Great service, support and overall companies to work with.
I am totally amazed with the Trelino toilet. I set it all up, added some pine cat litter pellets in the bottom of the poop tank, and then use coco coir coconut husks to cover the poop. It literally doesn't smell! I tested it in the house bathroom and now that I know it works so well, I'll take it camping. I will probably end up taking out the toilet in my small camper and installing the Trelino for full time use. The Trelino seems to be built tough and the design works great. So far I have no complaints and will recommend this product to other campers. Thanks Trelino!
The other options seemed too complicated, pricey and to much of a hassle to empty. After considering them all I was prepared to try another DIY option. Your product came available just in time. So happy with Trelino. Well designed and built and simple to use. We’re some happy campers here in Montana
Recently purchased the Trelino Evo M for my van but will also use in my travel trailer. Great design and works well. No issue with #2 order. Learned about the product from George at Humble Road.
It is the best looking, easiest to clean and must comfortably portable toilet I have owned. Highly recommend. Thank you for making such a wonderful product.
Our toilet products are a great fit for your outdoor adventures. Whether you are camping, overlanding, or taking weekend trips, everyone can benefit from a Trelino® toilet!
The intelligent separation of 'solid' and 'liquid' prevents smell and allows disposal in no time. It's so simple, you will never want to switch back!
A dry separation toilet consists of a body, a lid and a toilet seat. Its inner parts include two containers and a urine separator. This separates liquid from solid and thus forms the heart of the toilet. The aim is to keep the big business as dry as possible.
For this purpose, the urine is diverted to the front into a canister. To prevent leakage and odors, the lid of the canister has a special membrane. The solid waste ends up in a separate container lined with a garbage bag. Here you can also throw the toilet paper.
To enhance the drying process, sprinkle the big business with bedding material after going to the toilet. Drying prevents the formation of bacteria, which are responsible for the usual odor. For emptying, you can remove both containers separately from each other.
Yes, it is ready to go! For any Trelino® toilet you order, you should receive the following:
- The body
- The toilet seat with a separation insert & an attached lid (for the Evo series) or a wooden lid (for the Origin)
- 1x urine canister
- 1x lid with a membrane closure
- 1x additional closed lid,
- 1x solid waste container
- 10x plastic bags that fit your toilet
We use compostable bags or completely recycled plastic bags for the solid waste bin. Both types are reinforced and non-transparent.
Basically, you can use any bag, but make sure the material is strong enough and take into account the size of the solids container.
As a litter material for drying the solids, we recommend natural materials such as very fine sawdust, small animal litter, coconut bricks or mini hemp.
Tip: We do not recommend cat litter. The granules become very heavy, can develop their own odor and are often chemically contaminated. Alternatively, just try it with dried coffee 😉.
You can empty the liquid in any toilet that is connected to the sewage system, whether at the rest area or the toilet blocks at the campsite. Alternatively you can also sprinkle the urine out in nature as a fertilizer.
Emptying the bag is as easy as using it: You can dispose of the bag with the solids in the residual waste or put the contents in the composter (if you are using compostable bags).
All of our separating inserts have a special coating and thus support the drainage. For cleaning, we recommend that you mix vinegar (or concentrated vinegar) with water and pour it into a small spray bottle.
This way, the mixture can be easily applied to the separator insert and the individual containers and wiped off.
In particular, never rinse the urine canister with pure water, as the combination of urine with pure water promotes urine scale.
Just rinse the canister with a bit of vinegar after each emptying cycle and you are good to go.
Tip: Since urine can develop its own odor due to nutrition, we recommend that you add a few drops of vinegar essence to the canister in advance to prevent the odor and the formation of urine scale. 🙂
You still have a cassette or chemical toilet installed? No problem! Our separation toilets can replace these without restriction. The pre-installed chemical toilets are usually only screwed to the back wall and floor and the water drain must be closed.
If you do not have the confidence to do the conversion yourself, we will be happy to help you. Please feel free to contact us 🙂 .
Tip: You want to be able to remove your Trelino® flexibly? 🙂 Then use velcro or strong magnets to secure the separation toilet while driving, but also to be able to use it as a stool outside, for example.
