    Any interest in reviving the Airhead composting toilet group buy effort?  Seems like a lot of recent conversation, I'm willing to bet we could get some takers.  If memory serves me correctly, the owner wasn't interested the last time he was approached....  Perhaps recent economy downward spiral has had an effect.  Might be worth a try.

    We'd also be interested if you could work this out.

    You guys might want to consider the Natures Head as well. I'm pretty happy with it.

    What do you like or dislike about the Natures Head?

    I looked at the Natures Head website a while back, and seem to remember that it would occupy more space than the Airhead? I've decided to go with an airhead so I can pee standing up without dribbling on the seat, which would be unavoidable with the integral seat of the Natures Head. Then I can lower the seat and hide the dribble rather than cleaning after every use. Yes, I'm a pig.

    I found this to be an excellent comparison with both vendor's chiming in:

    Eric,

    I researched both Airhead and Natures head carefully before buying, including the link that Tate just posted. Price was the only real difference. Since I live aboard full time, I purchased a second base unit so I could cycle through them, allowing complete composting before dumping. Whichever you choose I'm sure you won't be disappointed as the main reason for me was odor, which is completely solved. I also bought a second liquids tanks which is pretty handy for guys.

    We purchased our Airhead when we moved aboard about 1.5 years ago. It's been great. We've shown it to several other boaters, of which one purchased the Airhead, the other purchased Nature's.  When we were looking, the Nature's head top came off to drain the urine tank leaving the composting bin open. Yuk, not for the squeamish people. Check that feature before deciding if you can handle the Yuk factor. The Airhead is smaller as mentioned, better for short people.

    The Airhead urine tank is a separate unit that unbolts from the front of the system, not having to open the compost bin. Buy two for the time you forget to empty the tank and have to go in the middle of the night.

    Also, spraying the bowl down after each use keeps it from growing mold and germs.Daily cleaning is easy, I use Lysol wipes. Filling and wiping the urine tank with white vinegar helps keep the stains from building up when the monthly deep cleaning time is due. 

    One last comment, I found sugarcane toilet paper. It's 80 cents per roll, composts very rapidly, in a matter of a few days actually. Check the internet for it, and it's much cheaper than the expensive RV paper.

    John is the person in charge of the cleaning and maintaining the head, I can only attest to the use of it but he'd probably agree with purchasing Airhead over Nature's.
