Uncle Booger's Bumper Dumper

The Bumper DumperŪ is not just an accessory, it's a necessity. Whether you are a hunter, fisherman, camper, or off- roader, the Bumper Dumper is a great item for all outdoor enthusiasts. It's great to have on construction sites, traveling with kids,or at the beach. Anywhere you may need to go while on the go the Bumper DumperŪ is a must have item. Just a trailer hitch receiver on the back of your vehicle with a Bumper DumperŪ, and no more squatting in a bush, no more unstable, flimsy, rickety,under sized porta potty,and no more smelly unsanitary outhouses. Just plug the Bumper DumperŪ into your hitch receiver and the comfort of home is there when nature calls.

Have you ever been stuck in the middle of nowhere with no place to go? Has this happened to you? You're at the campsite or in the middle of nowhere and suddenly nature calls. What do you do? You squeamishly go looking for a quiet spot behind a bush to do your thing. You cautiously avoid the poison oak and ivy. As you carefully squat down and try to relax a snake suddenly comes slithering through the weeds and startles you. What a mess! Now when nature calls you can go in comfort where ever you are with the one and only Bumper DumperŪ. No more looking for the right spot, no more trying to balance while squatting, and no more surprises from creepy critters. Just park your vehicle in a nice secluded spot, plug the Bumper DumperŪ in to your trailer hitch receiver, and VOILA!! A portable toilet sturdy enough to hold 500 lbs. and just as comfortable as using the bathroom at home. You can even set up a privacy screen for complete comfort.

Has this happened to you? You're driving on a long secluded stretch of road. You and the family had a big dinner at the last restaurant about an hour ago and someone's gotta go. "Can you hold it till the next stop", you ask. You drive a few miles and the sign says next station 90 miles ahead. Meanwhile, she tells you she needs to go too, but she can wait till the next stop. You keep driving a while and find yourself starting to feel the urge as well. By this time everyone is getting pretty anxious. You finally see the exit to the station and the brain kicks in. Everyone knows it's almost time for relief. You quickly exit and pull in to park. You get the restroom key from the attendant and hurry to open the door.

Not Anymore! It's Super Sanitary At one time or another you'll wish you had a Bumper DumperŪ. It's great on those long road trips. The Bumper DumperŪ is light weight and stores easily. Now you have a safe and sanitary alternative to those road side nightmares. You can be assured of a sanitary place to go wherever you go. Take it hunting, fishing, camping, boating, vacation, on the job, in the field, or anywhere you may need to go.

The Bumper DumperŪ is great to have anywhere you go. No other portable toilet can compare to the support, stability and comfort that the Bumper DumperŪ offers. The frame is made from quality steel and comes with a standard size toilet seat. It's the only portable toilet you can use your own seat on. Almost any standard size toilet seat can be mounted to the frame so you can attach a padded seat or the favorite seat of your choice. The Bumper DumperŪ will last a long long time and it's light weight and so easy to use. If you have a trailer hitch receiver and travel or engage in outdoor activities where restrooms are far and few in between the Bumper DumperŪ is a must have item. Makes a great gift too.

Here Is What WE Say About It

When I 1st heard about this product I thought it might be one of those jokes that people pass around. You see there was a discussion on the Jeep Expeditions Forum about what is the best Porta-Pottie to buy. Yeah I know boring but when you hit the backcountry for a few days or longer, you need to think about sanitation. After all, sections of the famous Rubicon Trail have been closed to the public due to the proliferation of "human waste". Ok, I know the animals do it so why can't people. I am guessing toilet paper is a part of it but who knows the government works in strange ways.

So it seems as if there are two types of Porta-Potties that some of us have been using and sharing. The first is that two part toilet that has clear water (for flushing) and the seat in the top part and the bottom part contains the "valve" for the waste to go down and the waste tank with chemicals that make the water blue. Yeah, thats the one. Now the only problem with this one is that NO one wants to carry it in their Jeep (one of the guys had one that leaked all over the inside (YUCK), NO one wants the responsibility of finding a "dump station" to dump it and NO one wants to clean it. Further more they are so low to the ground that a taller person is sitting there with his knees at chin height.

The second choice is the heavy duty "zip" bag that has some magic crystals in it. These bags usually attach to a fold up unit like the PETT toilet, or the flimsy seat that sits on a flimsy plastic barrel or the seat the sits on top of a 5 gallon bucket. Now I have had experience with all three of these types.

The PETT toilet. while being a heavy duty plastic and folding up to a reasonable size has gotten lots of "press" it also only stands on 3 legs so you don't want to lean too far to the side or you risk tipping over. The other thing is that the WAG bags that PETT sells for this unit are about the size of a gallon zip lock bag and they claim that they are good for 3 dumps. Yeah right, after the first dump, the person before you's tiolet paper is standing tall enough to tickle your rear end. So them $4 bags to me are good for one dump and that's it. Another disadvantage is that in the sand, the legs just start sinking so while you are probably already sitting lower than you are used to on your toilet back home, as you sit down, it keeps sinking deeper in the sand.

The portable that sits on its own plastic "barrel" is flimsy. The seat is flimsy and it just doesn't give a big guy like me a comfortable feeling sitting on it. Also with such a small "foot print" I find that this one is even less stable in some situations than the PETT on three legs.

And finally, the contraption that sits on top of the 5 gallon bucket. See the comment above about the "barrel" toilet. They share the same short comings and you still need to make the room to store them 5 gallon buckets.

Now don't get me wrong, any of the above Porta-Potties serve their purpose and help us to be good neighbors to our fragile enviroment but is there a beter "mousetrap" so to speak? Maybe there is, you be the judge after we judge.

Now back to the forum conversation, one of my good friends in the club posted to the Pottie discussions and said "How about this one - Uncle Booger's Bumper Dumper" and gave us a link. I thought it was one of Mikes jokes, he has a great sense of humor but I took the bait and clicked on the link. OMG it's real! This website is so funny but you know it made me think back to our Red Rocks Expedition when Grunt, CopaTJ and Straight Up were joking around about Straight Up's home made pottie that plugs into his receiver and has a toilet seat on it. He said laugh as you may but it is sturdy, easy to set up and it was easy to build. Some of us wondered why no one made these for the outdoor crowd and now we find out that these have been around for a few years. And in mass production. Funny how we didn't take seriously something so simple.

So I contact Randy at Bumper Dumper and ask a few questions. I am liking this and Randy even called me long distance on his dime to discuss our purchase. Now that is what I call good old Texan hospitality and service ! Guess what my new Bumper Dumper is on the way with the optional TP (thats toilet paper for you greenhorns) holder!

Expecting that the Bumper Dumper will be here in about 2 days, I got busy installing a 2" receiver hitch on an M101 off-road trailer. That now being done, all there is to do now is wait for it to arrive, find a good safe but accessible place to store it in the trailer when not in use and then to "break it in" for the 1st time on our Canyon De Chelly Expedition coming up in less than 2 weeks.

Two days later as promised by Randy the Bumper Dumper arrives. All I had to do was open the package, install the toilet seat on the steel supporting structure and it was ready to go. Ok, so I had to do a "dry" run. Simply stated it inserted the assembled Bumper Dumper unit into my 2" receiver and sat down. I think that as crazy as this is, I am going to like it ! Let's see what the rest of the group thinks on our Canyon De Chelly Expedition.

The day has arrived and our 60 person caravan of Jeeps has entered Canyon De Chelly with our Navajo Guides. As everyone goes about setting up camp I get my campsite set up too and install the Bumper Dumper to the receiver hitch on the back of the M101 trailer. Word starts to spread throughout the camp area, "come look at the Bumper Dumper" I hear.

A small crowd gathers round, people are pointing, I see pictures being taken and then one of our members, Slider, walks up and offers to model. And model he did! Slider dropped his jeans to his ankles and sat down on the Bumper Dumper! Some of the ladies were looking away, others were snapping pictures. Someone gave him a news paper and more pictures were taken. Several of the guys were looking at it and said they had to get one. It certainly drew attention.

Well as things go, using any type of "dumper" device, people are looking for privacy, especially in a group setting like ours. I came prepared with a quick set up Outback Porta Privy. This trick little "latrine/shower" privacy tent was easily modified by making a slit across the back at the "dumpers" height, having a zipper (or you could have velcro sewn on) sewn on and you have a great little and inexpensive privacy tent.

Here are a few pictures with the Outback "instant up" porta privy. The ladies appreciate this addition.

Now as you can see in the pictures, I decided to use a inexpensive Home Depot 5 gallon bucket with some very thick and heavy duty contractor bags to contain the waste. In the future, I am going to have a small container with cat litter and powered lime or something of the sort mixed in with a scoop to cover what you dumped.

So what do we think about the Bumper Dumper. It is an innovative product, for Jeep Expeditions it is going to replace the Pett System and the chemical porta john for most of our trips. It is sturdy, takes up little space in your vehicle or trailer and it is built to last for years and years. We are going to do two things to our Bumper Dumper. 1. Put a nice oak seat on it. Nothing wrong with the plastic seat that comes with it but the oak is more outdoorsy and is nicer to sit on; 2. I am going to find a way to temporarily mount the toilet paper holder. I am thinking a drilling a small hole and using a thumb screw should work just fine.

Do you need one of these for your camping trips, absolutely! Why fool with anything else. Be the talk of your camp and the life of the party, let your friends laugh, but once they check out the Bumper Dumper, they will want one too !
