RE: Black tank leaked. What to do?

I’d give Outfitter a call. They should be able to give instructions on how to take the floor off. I’m assuming they are still in business. New ownership apparently and sounds like the service is much better overall but I left a message last week and never heard back. I'll just have to keep trying.

RE: Black tank leaked. What to do?

No rot no stink...it doesn't need to be replaced...unless you need to cut it out to remove the tank. Unless you are trying to repurpose the space the tank sits in, you might just leave it if you were able to fully drain it. We had a composter on our boat. For a full size RV (with functional tanks), I would not recommend it. For a truck camper with a small tank, it's a good option. Easier to deal with than a cassette, which we've used on rental RVs and the solids tank on ours could handle a month with 2 people using it. The big thing is the smell. Other than a slightly earthy garden smell when emptying, no smells. The urine can be disposed of in any toilet. The 2 gallon tank is easier to carry and pour than a cassette. Thanks. Eventually I'd like to replace the black tank with a second fresh water tank but that can wait. Glad to hear your experience was overall positive. We don't have a dump site that is terribly convenient to our house, we frequently go winter camping and I hate dealing with the black tank during winter so I'm dead set on the composter. It literally cannot be any worse.

RE: Black tank leaked. What to do?

evidently not too much "stink" soaked into the marine grade plywood so I would think that a bunch of coats of KILZ might work. worked for my dining room floor where my cats (5) each claimed their territory. bumpy There's no stink, and no apparent damage so I'm not sure if I even need the kilz, do I? Anyone know how to drop the bottom out of an Outfitter?

Black tank leaked. What to do?

So our black tank leaked on our last trip and cut it short. Planning on switching to a composting toilet so we just don't need to deal with the black tank at all any more but my question is do we need to replace the bottom of the camper? It's an Outfitter Juno 10 so the black tank was in the basement and the bottom is marine grade plywood. Everything dried out and doesn't have an odor any more but do we need to get it replaced? I'm assuming I'm not the first one this has happened to. :)

RE: Outfitter's New Molded Fiberglass Body for the Apex 8 Camper

@Porkchopexpress: You say you live "West". Any chance for a trip to Colorado to visit Outfitter (and Hallmark, while you are close by anyway)? Well worth the visit, Rocky Mtn NP is close by. I haven't heard or seen any of the new models either. We sold our 2011 Apex in 2015 for reasons unrelated to the camper and I have not followed the popup camper market closely since. My profile is out of date. I currently live in Florida and will be going to the Tampa RV show next week. I will look at the Northern Lite and anything else that interests me. I will probably fly out to Denver in a few weeks or so to see an Outfitter and maybe Hallmark, but the elevated wet bath in the Hallmark would probably be a problem for me. The 76" headroom might be a problem on the Northern Lite. On paper the Outfitter Apex seems like the best option but I definitely wouldn't commit to such a big purchase sight unseen. We have a Juno 10 that was either the first or second year after they started doing the molded fiberglass bodies. No complaints here. It's held up very nicely. Only thing I don't like is that the table is hard to store, too tall (even though I'm 6'2"), awkward positioning. Pretty sure they use Lagun tables now and I'm probably going to upgrade ours sometime.

RE: Revisiting pop-up campers

We have a Juno 10 and a diesel and live in Colorado. The diesel may be overkill but it is oh so nice going over those mountain passes. If our furnace or water heater ever die I'll be looking into replacing them with a webasto knockoff so we don't need to worry about propane any more. Very happy w/ our Outfitter. We've had a wet bath in both our truck campers and would recommend without hesitation. It's so dry here there's no issues getting it dried out quick.
