Description and pictures of your cat litter box solutions?

Please share description and pictures of your cat litter box solutions. I like the idea of of using a storage bay and providing kitty access from inside the coach. Please share your experiences with this and other solutions.

Thanks!

That's exactly what we use in our 5th wheel and we put it in the closet in the bedroom. This has worked out perfect for us and we clean it daily.

No storage bay use here. One litter "tote" goes in the RV's bathtub and the other in the bedroom under the window. Both are faithfully scooped twice a day.

X2. The bathtub does a great job of containing the mess. Just make sure to keep the drain covered up.

Yep! Plus we have several sheets of newspapers under the totes. We're real careful none of the litter goes down the drain.

We have a triangular shaped liter box with fairly high sides and only one lower side to restrict In/Out access. We put it in the shower with a Litter Mat under it to try and contain the liter as she gets out. Sorta works, and it gets cleaned once or twice a day. Bit of a pain at times but WTH.
One of those things a person has to deal with if you want to get down the road and see the country. Can't leave your family behind.

We travel with three cats. We use two of these for our "on the road" litter boxes:

Amazon.com: Clevercat Top Entry Litterbox: Pet Supplies

Clever Cat top entry litter boxes, one in the truck's back seat area (the cat's travel area) and the other in the bathroom next to the toilet. When we went shopping for our 5er, we had as one of our "requirements" a space to put the litter box. In our old bumper pull, the DW made a liner for the bathtub and the cat box resided there, but, in "moving up", we wanted to be able to use our own shower. Amazing how many trailers there are that have zero places to put a litter box that isn't in the living room or dining room area...

We have 2 cats, and one can get carried away and throw litter everywhere. The top entry would be the answer, but our other cat would not fit in it.

I have to admit we put our litterbox in the shower too (with a cover over the drain). Just the easiest place for it I guess.

Our male cat, tall, large, lean and lanky, wouldn't fit in this box. He would barely be able to turn around. He would fit in a large tote with cover, but then why bother with a cover? It just makes scooping harder.

Can I ever relate to that. Moving the heavy litterbox tote was a real PITA last winter.

You can find places but then they'd be harder to scoop and even a litter with deodorant needs to be scooped twice a day. There are usually storage spaces under beds. The bottom of cabinets (just cut a cat door in them. Get cat-door at any Petsmart or Perco. The corners of bedrooms are good places for litterpans. Under a dining-room seat - scooped deodorized little doesn't smell. Those who design RVs don't think of all of us cat owners out here. If a non-cat-owner bought an RV with space for a litterbox, they could use it for something else, like plain old storage space.

If your cats aren't into litterbox guarding or feeling trapped in such a place, you can use a larger covered tote from Wal*Mart or Lowe's. Just cut a hole in the top.

A lot of litterpans out there are designed for kittens or undersize cats. I have noticed that PetsMart near us is now carrying much larger more realistic size litter pans. But totes are cheaper and work just as well.
