I believe the "Ethics of Reciprocity" or just the good old "Golden Rule" apply to this discussion.

I treat guests as I would expect to be treated, with courtesy and respect. If we have guests they are welcome to use our facilities.
On a side note, on a trip years ago; we were stopped by highway construction in N. NV for about two hours (washout). Drivers were passing time by conversing on the CB radios, when one guy commented that traffic had to be moving soon because his pregnant wife really had to go. I invited her, and husband to our RV to use the facilities. About 5 women took advantage of our offer.

If a guest needed my bathroom, no problem. But based on what I have read on how some other folk use (or rather don't use) their bathrooms, I would have to visit facilities before visiting... or not visit. Good thing I don't have "bladder problems". After reading this thread, I'm not sure I would risk "visiting" some in their RV.

Honestly, I can't imagine not allowing and inviting our guests to use our bathroom, in fact I tell our guests where the bathroom is, so they can use it if they need it. And mostly we boondock! If you are hooked up at a campground, why wouldn't you offer the same amenities to your friends as you would at your home? If you're inviting them in, then you are the host or hostess. My humble opinion...

If someone asks you to use your bathroom, and you say no, you've probably just lost a friend.

Once upon a time, DW and I were caught in major traffic jam on I 80 in Wyo. Lady trucker next to us really had to go. Wife told her no problem use ours in the 5er. On down the road we had a tire blow. Lady trucker pulled up behind us - woke her partner up ( a really big young guy) and had him change our tire. Always do good deeds!

If I am hosting I would expect guests to go in the Coach and use My Bathroom,
If I am a guest and My rig is only next door or close, I would Go back to My Coach. But if I am visiting "Cocktails" "Dinner or Whatever and we are on the other side of the CG I have No problem with using the Guests facilities!!

I would never ask to use another RVers bathroom and I would never allow someone in my camper I wouldn't permit to use my bathroom if they asked.

I would go to my RV or the camp RR to potty, but that's just me.

Since I full-time, I'm with the crowd saying all guests are welcome to use my potty. If I'm not okay with someone using my toilet, they are certainly not making it inside my front door.

Since the "travel" unit is only with an "added" pota-potti, it would be unlikely to use ours as everyone else would have to leave for the privacy. The full-time rig - on the other hand - is avail to all who visit since it is our "home" and same as a stick house to some.
