Can I Use A Regular House Toilet In My Travel Trailer?
Hi, I was wondering if there is a way to put a regular toilet in a travel trailer so that the holding tank is taken off, so I can hook up to a septic tank and do not have to dump all the time, it is a 40ft Nomad.

ANSWER: Greetings Donna thanks for submitting your question on our Ask An RV Question Page.
I am sure that a qualified plumber in your area could come up with a way of modifying the plumbing on your Travel Trailer to use a Home Type Toilet. Don't forget that if you do not want to have to keep dumping the Grey Water Tank you may have to do the same modifications on your Kitchen Sink Drain, Shower Drain, etc.
You may also find that this could end up being a costly project depending on how easily these modifications are to complete.

Another factor to keep in mind is that whatever you do to modify your Travel Trailer's plumbing to hook up directly to a Septic Tank will have to meet the building codes in your city or county.
Lastly if you ever decide to move this Travel Trailer it could end up being very costly to modify the plumbing again to make it road worthy.
I wish you luck.
