The 2012 Democratic National Convention will take place September 4th - 6th in Charlotte, NC, and Portable Restroom Trailers will be there! We will have one restroom trailer at the welcoming party on Sunday at the Raptor Center, one behind the stage designated for the Dignitaries and Heads of State, and one designated for the Google Corporate team. One of the restroom trailers that will be used at the convention is the new 2013 Beach Elite ADA +2. This portable restroom includes three suites- one women’s, one men’s, and one unisex ADA. ADA means that the unit is compliant with government standards for handicap access, so it’s easier and safer to use with a disability. Each suite has its own vanity mirror, sink, and in-counter waste receptacle, as well as soap dispenser, paper towels, and an easy push button flush for safe and clean operation. The Beach Elite incorporates neutral earth tones and granite surfaces for a stylish, warm, pampered feeling with a touch of class. The Beach Elite is a simple yet elegant portable bathroom that is sure to please. PRT is proud to have been selected to supply so many people with such an important, outstanding product.

It’s a Presidential election year and thus the season for National Conventions. It’s also the season for hurricanes. The Republican National Convention that was to begin in Tampa on August 27th had to be pushed back a day due to concerns surrounding Hurricane Isaac. Fortunately for Florida it turned out that Isaac wasn’t too much of a threat. New Orleans and surrounding areas, on the other hand, weren’t quite as fortunate. Isaac made land fall near New Orleans on the 7th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, which stirred up many emotions for the citizens of the city. This time around, the levees seemed to withstand the storm surge, but there was still major flooding, debris, and power outages, which did lead to some emergency rescues. The Red Cross and many other disaster relief organizations are doing what they can to help support our Gulf Coast friends…what can we all do to help our fellow citizens during this hardship?

Restroom trailers are great for every type of event, but let’s not forget about shower trailers. What are they good for? Shower trailers are typically used for events where people get dirty or for long term use, when your usual shower is unavailable or if you're having guests. If you are renovating your home, a shower and restroom combo trailer might be a good solution for you. They are also great for disaster relief, providing a private, safe place to clean up. The shower/bathroom combo trailers provide both amenities in one unit and are climate controlled for any season, even inclement winter weather. The shower units are also great for events such as the Tough Mudder, Warrior Dash, or Ragbrai which require their participants get sweaty, wet, sandy, and muddy. Many beach communities are also providing shower trailers for their guests to use so that they can shower off before going home. Some camp sites also provide shower trailers for their guests to use while vacationing. Shower trailers are an excellent amenity, though it seems a forgotten one…if you plan on having an event or home renovation; don’t forget to think about either a portable restroom trailer or a shower combo unit.

We’ve all done it at one time or another…dropped something in the portable potty! The question is, who has actually fished it out? Thankfully, I have not dropped anything in there that has been of value so I’ve left it. I don’t think I could bring myself to dig it out, so I have made a rule for myself: what drops in the porta potty, stays in the porta potty…no matter what! I have heard horror stories of keys, cell phones, watches, wallets and other things falling into the portable toilet. Unfortunately for some of the “victims”, they had to find a way to get their belongings out. I have heard of sticks, hangers, bubble gum, even bare hands being used to try to dig out the item. It might not be so bad if there wasn’t a huge drop, such a large basin, or rotting waste piled high. Somehow, dropping something in a regular toilet doesn’t seem quite as traumatic. If there’s no other option, such as an indoor restroom or a restroom trailer where you can place your valuable items safely on a shelf or hang your bag on a hook, next time you go into a porta potty make sure to keep them out of range of the big bad basin. You’ll be a lot happier!
Winter Events | Comments (2)
Have you started thinking about winterizing your RV or camper trailer yet? Although Labor Day is a week away and there might be one more chance to get in a camping trip, most families start packing up their campers and RVs after the long weekend, and once school starts. In order to successfully keep your RV or trailer safe during the winter months, you will need to winterize it. There is a suggested list of things to do, but the most important thing to do is flush all the water out of the pipes. The last thing you want is a frozen pipe to burst- talk about a mess! Once the pipes are clear of water, flush antifreeze (specifically for RV) through the pipes until it runs out of the faucets. Then make sure all of the faucets are completely off. If you want a little added protection, pour some antifreeze in all of the drains…it’s better to be safe than sorry. There are other tips to preventing damage to your RV such as making sure any openings or vents are completely closed off to little animal friends looking for a warm shelter, which The Complete Idiot’s Guide provides. You can also go to your local RV/Camper dealer to get some good suggestions on how to winterize, as well. Luckily, portable restroom trailers come with a special winter package. If you’re thinking of having a winter event, a portable restroom is the best way to go because it is safe, private, and most importantly, heated. Your guests won’t have to freeze their behinds off (no pun intended!) when nature calls, which will make them very happy.

If you think having a portable restroom trailer at your party is extravagant, take a look at this video of celebrity trailers! abcnews.go.com/GMA/video/lavish-celebrity-trailers-smith-simon-cowell-asthon-kutcher-14931631 These are not just restroom trailers; they are million dollar estates on 18 wheels! They’re multi-level, ultra luxurious homes (and offices) away from home. These mobile estates, as they’re called, include multiple full bathrooms with steam showers, bedrooms, play areas for the kiddos, theaters, flat screen TVs, electronic control panels, and much, much more. You can customize it with whatever you want…for a price that is. Celebs like Simon Cowell, Will Smith, J Lo, and Ben Stiller all have one, customized to their liking. It seems that this is the new “competitive trend” amongst Hollywood celebrities…to see who has the biggest and baddest mobile estate. Even though the majority of the population probably won’t be living in one of those mobile estates anytime soon, look on the bright side…at least the portable restrooms are easy to relocate and fit just about anywhere!
