Has anybody seen these? looks like they could be adapted to use in a bus conversion, although you would need separate black and grey water tanks.the water use is small but can be adjusted on a flush by flush basis to what ever you need, might be a good water saving system. I don't know about the pricing. I have a call into Ardemco about these I will let you know what I come up with

They actually use 4-5 times as much water as an RV toilet.

Also, a Vacuflush system is well north of $1,000.  We evaluated this system when we did our conversion because our waste tank is too far from the toilet to use a conventional RV model.  We ended up going with the Microphor air-flush system instead.  But both are more complicated, more expensive, and use more water than regular direct-drop RV toilets.

The standard RV toilet uses the flawless technology perfected over millenium by the use of the outhouse.  As long as you do not camp in a non-gravity area, it can't be beat for efficiency, simplicity, and economy.

For long distance flushing, I'm planning on a simple, standard RV toilet directly over a small holding tank & using a pump to move the contents of that tank to the main black tank when required. - you can buy several pumps for what one of those complicated toilets cost. . .

When i was a boat mechanic i hated those things! They hogged electric, noisy when pumping up the vacumn, prone to the joker valve getting tissue or "stuff" in it and leaking off the air press. Then the pump would run and run. the worst was having to take them apart for the inevitable repair/maintainence. If you use one of these make sure you can service it (dissconect the  hoses easily without making huge smelly mess) Sea Ray was the worst hiding these things in the worst possible places. thumpa thumpa thumpa thumpa thumpa.....     heed Lin's advice!

When I had a camper a thousand or so years ago it had a toilet with a macerator pump that would pump the "crap" out through a garden hose. Worked like a charm WHEN IT WORKED. Which wasn't often enough. And I hated having to work on it. I think if that was all I had available to me now I would forgo the toilet and walk to the outdoor bathroom.
