Here at Van World we equip our Welfare Units use the Thetford C403 Cassette Toilet as the Welfare Van Toilet.

Thetford are the market leader in mobile sanitary systems and
we believe their commitment to delivering a high-end product
marries well to our own motto of “Escape the Ordinary”.

This particular model was chosen for its light weight, waste capacity and ease of emptying; all important factors when considering the most suitable toilet for a Welfare Van.

Its compactness allows space and weight to be allocated towards other functions of the Welfare Unit.
