When nature calls out in the bush, grab the portable toilet favoured by many Aussies, the Jimmy’s Thunderbox. Designed to match the height and seat size as the toilet at home so you can sit back and enjoy your morning ritual with ease.
Offering a comfortable wooden seat and sturdy and strong galvanised steel base that can handle a body weight of up to 230kg, Jimmy’s Thunderbox requires no assembly and takes just mere seconds to set up. Simply line the toilet with a bucket or In-viro™ degradable toilet bags to catch your, erm… deposits.
Super easy to clean with a bit of water and a stiff brush, Jimmy’s Thunderbox weights just 4.2kg and packs down very flat into the included canvas carry bag for easy storage and transportation.
Love our Thunder Box, It's Sterdy and comfortable. i highly recommend it
Quality product Folds flat
This is my second Thunderbox, the first one simply wore out after many years set up in the open. Great solution to off grid camping and I expect this one will last as long as the first. Quality product, simply in design but works soooo well. Thank you Snowy
Pulled into a camp and the long drop was full up to the seat lid. Puke! The kids crossed the legs and it was long before sitting down was the only thing keeping everything in. But still nobody was using the overflow. This was my moment, I pulled out the Thunderbox I had hidden away in the ute. Dug a hole and set up a pop up shower tent around the Thunderbox and was hailed a hero by our camping party. What a moment, the gratitude was immediate.
Had one for years. This is its replacement, and the quality is still there. I haven't used the new one yet. The only thing I thought about (after ordering), is how hot will the black top get? My last one was mdf, which I put a laquer on.
As a baby boomer with shot knees, the normal 'shovel in the bush' dunny wasn't working too well. Enter Jimmy and his Thunderbox! Joy! Delight! No pain (in the knees!) Just get one, don't hesitate. And buy it from Snowy's, they are the duck's guts! Didn't take photos, for obvious reasons...
Haha, kinda glad you didn't! Laine :)
This is our second Thunderbox and it is great.
As Track Care WA, we are a volunteer organization which looks after the Canning Stock Route and builds Toilets, Shelters, Campgrounds, and refurbishes wells. While we are camped at a well in one spot to build a Dunny, we need a Thunderbox until the new one is finished.
I also volunteer for Desert Discovery Inc. – another Volunteer Organisation which does Scientific Biological Surveys into the Desert every second year. We also have 2 Thunderboxes in use there, and we love them to bits.
The one you have just supplied us will depart for the CSR on 6 May and be in demand while we build a new Toilet at Well 15 for the Birriliburu Community.
It will be again called upon for the trip after, departing 1 June where we are planning to build a new Campsite for the Ngurrara Community at Well 49 on the CSR.
We will probably need more over time as we do more Projects simultaneously, so we might be in touch in the future.
great toilet but got damaged in transit I fixed it up all good great to deal with snowys all the time thank you
How many In-Viro degradable bags come with Jimmy's Thunder Box?
The Jimmy Thunderbox doesn't come with any biodegradable toilet bags included.
In the description there is mention that bags or bucket can be used. I gather with a bucket (used by a female) your biodegradable bags would fit? Also is the thunder box easy to clean on the inside?
This toilet is designed primarily to sit over a hole in the ground. The In-viro degradable toilet bags mentioned in the description (which we don't stock at this time) are used to line the inside to keep it clean – the brand recommends that you cut a hole out of the bottom of the bag and place it inside– which you can read about in detail here.
The second method is to use a bag on top of a bucket and then put it under the Thunderbox. As far as I can find, this toilet isn’t designed to be used with just a bag attached to catch waste, so I apologise if the description is confusing. We do sell the Elemental brand biodegradable bags which are designed to fit over a bucket here.
As for cleaning, the manufacturer recommends that you use water and a stiff brush if it does get dirty.
how do myou attach bags to collect the mess what weight can it support
