I have done several posts on the portable toilet trailers that Tom built for Honeywagon Sanitation a few years back. We must be high in the search engine for these “toilets on wheels” because lots of questions come in concerning the much needed item. This question/comment recently hit our email box and it comes from Harold Nisly from Nisly Brothers. You can check out their website at www.nislybrothers.com.
We are in the portable toilet business. I saw the video and am interested in more details about the toilet on wheels. What is the rise of the tounge on the hitch? On our trailers we have a straight tounge with no rise. The back of the trailer sometimes drags on the ground. Do you have any issues with the trailer tipping over in the wind on site or in transit? Any other info would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks for your help!
Thanks for checking out our website. I built the portable trailers with an 11″ off set built into the tounge. This allows the trailer to sit level when it is attached to a standard height hitch ball. The trailer can also be leveled out with a jack that I attached to the front. Our trailers sometimes drag because of the low entry step, which is about 8″, but there isn’t much that can get damaged. The main frame of the trailer is flat so it can skid over obstacles. As far as blowing over in the wind on site or in transit?… we have never heard of that happening. That would not be unheard of here in Wyoming. It would make for an interesting picture in the hometown paper.
Best of Luck,
