Ok if you haul a small POP up (I used to) consider pulling with something like a Dodge Maxi Van.. if it has windows it may qualify for Station Wagon plates. add curtains and put a porta-potty in the back (A 5 Gallon job) I Did that and then moved it to the trailer once set up.

Also travel on the Diabetic plan DO NOT PASS A REST AREA (less you just spent the night at a truck stop 1 mile up the road or close to it)

Option 2 (which is how I do it now) Class A


Home is where I park it.

I'm young enough to pop a squat if the need arises. Keep wet wipes handy and some way to store the "used" ones until you can get to a trash can. We have had to do this on long RZR rides.

But when my mom goes camping or staying in a family member's "shabin" that doesn't have indoor plumbing and requires a trip down the road to a pit toilet, she uses a little makeshift potty that she has created out of a home depot bucket, kitty litter, and a pool noodle cut to fit around the edge of the bucket so she can sit somewhat comfortably. You can even outfit this with a garbage bag in the bucket, then put the litter in the bag in the bucket, so it's easy disposal (just take the bag out and properly dispose).

My understanding is, it's perfectly acceptable to go anywhere in California. Especially on city streets.
Rural areas should not be a problem.

People existed for thousands of years without additional plumbing facilities being available to them. They survived, you will too.

There are simple marine porta potties or, even cheaper, bucket & chucket.
