What are the differences between portable toilets and luxury restroom trailers?
Portable toilets are what most people are accustomed to using at outdoor events. When looking for a portable toilet it is important to ask if they are used only for special events. This will ensure you get a budget friendly restroom option which is still very nice for your guests.
A luxury restroom trailer offers your guests indoor amenities for outdoor events. They usually come with flushable toilets, vanity sinks and mirrors. They are definitely a more luxurious option; however, they are more expensive than your standard portable toilet. If you have it in the budget for your upscale event they are a great option for outdoor facilities! They are always the talk of the event!
We use a general rule of thumb for event toilets 50 people per portable toilet. This will change as we dive further into your needs including; how many women and children will you have, will there be alcohol served, how long is the event?

Where can I set my toilets?
Portable toilets can be placed almost anywhere that has a flat surface and is within 25 ft. reach of the portable toilet truck for services and pick up. Keep in mind of course that it is off the road, has full access to the door without obstacles blocking the way and placed conveniently for your guest to use. Sometimes this means having multiple stations of toilets for larger grounds and events.
Restroom trailers require a generator or electrical outlet to run the a/c, radio and lights. They are considerably larger than a portable toilet so they will need the space to set up without obstruction to the entry ways.
All of our portable toilets come equipped with a hand sanitizer in each unit. However, some people like to have actual soap and water. We offer hand washing stations that have water, soap and paper towels. This is a very nice option for events and often times a requirement when food is served.
Are portable toilets handicap accessible?
Yes, we offer handicap accessible toilets. If that is a need, be sure to mention it. They are specially sized and have accessibility that the regular event toilets will not accommodate. When having a large event it is always a good idea to have at least one to accommodate guests. When having multiple toilet stations it is nice to have one at each station.
While this isn’t an exhaustive list, it is a place to get you started thinking about your restroom needs. For more information on portable toilets and restroom trailers, visit Total Venue online.
