Do you use special RV toilet paper or a standard brand from the supermarket?

Do you use special toilet paper that is labeled for use in RVs (or boats)? Or do you simply buy the cheapest brand at your local supermarket? The special RV toilet paper typically costs double or triple what a cheap roll would cost at Walmart or Costco.

So what’s your choice?

After you vote in the poll below, leave a comment and tell us what brand you use most often. Thanks!

Always bought RV toilet paper, til I viewed a documentary on UTube, that indicates septic safe broke down faster than RV toilet paper, and it was cheaper. So we are changing.

I use Safeway brand. My toilet is a cassette. All paper goes into a freezer ziploc bag after one particularly nasty trip with food poisoning. Grateful that I always travel with baby wipes.

Regular Charmin, no problems in our travel trailer.

I used our house brand (unnamed) for many years, but always had large clumps of toilet paper coming out of the black tank (I use a clear 45 degree elbow to see what is coming out.) It always took lots of flushing to get out the last clumps of paper out since my toilet is on the other side of the MH from the dump outlet. I changed to Scott’s RV paper and now absolutely no clumps of paper. To me, it is well worth the extra cost to get my black to empty easier.

Although I use Amazon for a lot of things, I have found that Walmart is considerably cheaper to buy the same product. I only found that out when a case of TP that I had ordered from Amazon came shipped in a Walmart box!! It pays to shop around!

I’ve found that Sam’s Club brand breaks down quicker than Scott’s RV paper.

I use Scott’s brand since its septic safe which means it breaks down real well. One ply brands usually are an alternative. But long timers have said when hooked up to sewer connection and have use of hooked up water just use plenty in bowl and flush well.

We use my favorite brand, which also happens to be good for the black tank (it passed the jar of water test). Won’t pay the high price of “special” RV TP.

I’ve camped for the last 40+ years and have always used regular house tp. I also have septic at home. Most major brands are septic safe. We’ve never had a problem either at home or camping.

While we use Costco brand TP, I installed a bidet seat in our TT. I installed a “T” in the water supply, and an outlet next to the toilet.
This makes life for both my wife and I much more comfortable, and emptying the black tank easier. P.S. we can only use its benefits when we are in a site with 120 v power.

Which bidet did you get? Since changing to bidet seats at the house we use all most zero TP.

I thought I would be fine with the cold water type (really I know I would) but I got a heated seat, heated water, electric nozzle retractor model on Fathers Day and now I am pretty sold on the 120 volt models😀. Kidding aside the electric model also prevents all kinds of accidental or deliberate squirting by the grand kids!

I have a 120 inverter on the motorhome that can easily handle the bidet seat. If you don’t have one, you could get a small one just for the bathroom for a very low price and be boondocker bidet ready…

Our bidet seat is a Brondell. If any women have reoccurring UTI’s, this helps reduce their occurrence greatly!

We just don’t put TP in the black tank, so it makes no difference what we use.

To each his own, personally I don’t want crappy toilet paper anywhere but down the toilet. Even when my kids were babies using cloth diapers we rinsed the crap out of them before putting it in the diaper pail.

That’s why they make scented bags for use in trash receptacles and we dispose of them each day.

Where do you dispose of them? In the regular trash dumpster? I believe you’ll find human waste is supposed to be treated in sewerage treatment facilities. Some places people are sorting through regular trash to insure only proper trash goes into landfills. Human waste is labeled biohazards, how would you like to be the one your bag of crap filled TP that got ripped open in the garbage truck comes by your work station? WAKE UP you’re not the last person to be exposed to your waste.

Angel Soft Toilet Paper. I now only put poop paper in black tank and throw pee pee paper in my daily trash. Was recommended to do this to extend your black tank capacity when boondocking. This way has been working for me for months now.

I use the same toilet paper I use in my home BUT I do not put in the travel trailer’s toilet. I keep a Walmart plastic bag in a plastic canister by the toilet and throw it in the trash when full.

Scotts for as long as I remember. Meets the dissolving test and performs as advertised!

Kirkland, but I flush my tank throughly every time. I take the shower head off, fill the bowl, then flush using the shower hose to hit the tank in particular directly below the toilet. I have one of those 45 degree clear elbows with the hose attachment and used it every time. This works better.

Charmin Ultra and we flush it like a normal person with lots of water. No problems.

We order Bamboo toilet paper from The Grove. Good for the tank (I did the shake test) and saves trees!

Ikes! Haven’t read the comments yet but surprised to see so many RVers using standard toilet paper. Aren’t the interior systems different than standard residential plumbing? In our travels, most RV parks prefer toilet paper for septic-tanks. Maybe I misunderstood the question…. In any case, we live by Scott’s brand, septic safe, found in the RV section of Walmart. And (knock on wood) after more than a dozen years of full-time RVing, no problems with the toity to date….

I think that a lot of don’t stay in RV parks and use dump stations along the way, we get great agitation driving. Also with good chemicals in your tanks (I use Happy Camper) everything dissolves great and with a good tank flush once in a while when available, everything works with no problems.

Costco Kirkland brand toilet paper is safe, priced great.

I used to use the special stuff (Scotts ordered through Amazon), but I conducted my own “see how fast it dissolves in water” comparison test, and I found no significant difference between that RV toilet paper and Costco Kirkland brand we used at home. Have been using Kirkland ever since.
