Kingstar Announces Cassette Toilet Upgrade

As a rolling change for 2024, all Kingstar truck campers now feature Thetford cassette toilet systems. If you’re a weekend camper, remote location camper, winter camper, or just hate dump stations, this is a significant upgrade.

Rolling changes are a common practice in the greater truck camper industry. Rather than wait for a model year update, manufacturers make changes to their campers when the product or design opportunity presents itself. As the thinking goes, why wait for a formal model year change when they can make the campers better now?

At Overland Expo West, Marcus Niemela, President of The Kingstar Company, showed us one of their latest rolling changes; a new cassette toilet system installation. The implementation is similar to the porta-potty system Kingstar had employed previously, but utilizes a 4.75 gallon Thetford cassette.

The Thetford cassette system is—arguably—the most versatile built-in toilet system on the market. Where a built-in RV flush toilet and holding tanks require open and operating dump stations, a Thetford cassette system can be dumped in any standard residential toilet or portable restroom.

If you’re a weekend camper, prefer more remote camping locations (far from dump stations), or a winter camper (when dump stations are often closed), a Thetford cassette toilet system might be ideal for you.
