The Trelino Van composting toilet has numerous advantages over a normal chemical toilet. It is always ready to go and you don't have to fill it with water and chemicals before you start. Therefore your whole vehicle doesn't smell of chemicals and you don't go for a walk with senseless water that you have to dispose of later. Not even if you do not use the toilet.
The Trelino (TRENNTOlino) is a normal composting toilet. It is available in two design variants:
- Trelino "uno": solid wood version made of pine --> click here
- Trelino "due": Plastic version in a color of your choice
The Trelino has no fan. Therefore it does not need to be permanently installed. You do not need electricity, water or chemicals.
The urine canister with 3.5 l content is usually sufficient for about 7 toilet visits. It can be easily removed and transported e.g. in a bag to the next disposal possibility. The solids container is also removable and can thus be emptied more easily. So that you can dispose of the solid waste in the residual waste, we recommend the use of bags, which you simply place in the solid waste bin. (See accessories).
After each visit to the toilet, we recommend that you sprinkle litter (small animal litter, composting toilet litter or similar) over your solid material. This will help the litter to dry and immediately create a dry surface to prevent odors.
The toilet seat of the Trelino is covered with a multi-layer wooden plate. To use the toilet you can simply remove it and place it next to the toilet. (Please note: a eco toilet also works for men only when seated) After going to the toilet you can simply put the cover back in place. It is held in place by magnets and thus remains on the toilet even during a bumpy ride.
To remove the container, simply lift off the upper part of the toilet. Afterwards you can simply remove, empty and reinsert the individual containers.
- PE housing in the ordered color
- Urine canister 3.5 l with lid (drilled to fit)
- Solid waste bucket 6 l with lid
- Multilayer wooden lid with holding magnets

You can upgrade the Trelino with the following accessories:
Does a composting toilet also work without a fan?
Yes, the Trelino in particular is designed so that you do not need a fan. However, you should make sure to sprinkle your solids well with small animal litter or special composting toilet litter after using the toilet to speed up drying. Furthermore, you should dispose of your solid material promptly, i.e. the same day in the residual waste.
Is the Trelino's urine tank sufficient?
Yes, the Trelino is designed as an "emergency" composting toilet. The 3.5 l urine tank capacity is sufficient for about 5 good toilet visits. Simply empty it afterwards.
Can I also use the toilet in a damp room?
Yes, but please note that the lid is made of wood. It is not suitable for direct splash water. If you use the toilet outdoors or in a shower, you should be careful not to get it wet directly.
Is the installation of the Trelino complicated?
No. The Trelino has no fan, no water and no chemicals. When you need it, you place it so that you can use it. Always where you need it.
Is the Trelino also suitable for children?
Some children have already become "clean" with the Trelino. Especially because of its height, small children can use the Trelino independently. Please note, however, that for children under 4 years of age you should also order the children's separating insert, as otherwise the opening could be too large.
Does the Trelino also work with "big bottoms"?
The seat size of the Trelino is similar to a normal toilet seat size. Therefore, it usually also fits larger persons.
Will the Trelino fit in the Ford Nugget's sanitary compartment?
No, it is minimally larger. But our BioToi fits in perfectly.
