Why Rent a Restroom Trailer When a Standard Porta Potty Will Do?

So your planning an event and looking at your portable restroom options. You see porta potties for rent and also luxury portable toilets available – which should you choose? You think to yourself, “Well, standard portable toilets are cheaper, so why would I want to go with luxury restroom trailers instead?” Here’s the low down on why so many people opt for a bathroom trailer:

Overall Look

When considering the aesthetics of both bathroom options, luxury portable toilets are definitely the better-looking option. This is why they are preferred for weddings, black tie events, and other fancy occasions. If you need something that will make guests feel like they’re at a nice hotel or restaurant, luxury restroom trailers are definitely the way to go! They have stylish décor like wooden cabinetry, large mirrors, faux plants, accent rugs, and framed artwork to complete their look

Basic Functionality

Standard portable toilets usually come equipped with hand sanitizer pumps inside, and some portable toilet suppliers may also offer handwashing stations to keep your event sanitary, but neither of those options compares to an actual dedicated sink with running hot and cold water inside a restroom trailer for use right after going to the bathroom. This is another reason why people really like bathroom trailers for their events.

A luxury portable restroom also offers the added functionality of flushing toilets. While some portable toilet units offer this, a trailer will have a much higher capacity, allowing them to be used by more people for longer periods of time before needing to be emptied.

Lastly, restroom trailers have climate controlled environments, which is something that no portable toilet can tout. This is important all year long because events that take place during the summer may cause traditional units to heat up to dangerous temperatures, and events that take place during the fall/winter or at night may leave units too cold for comfortable usage.


Luxury restrooms are more spacious, which means that they offer a place for guests to change and get ready for whatever event you’re planning. This is a great feature for weddings, where the wedding party needs to be able to get dressed for the big day and community events like marathons where participants may need to get changed and cleaned up afterwards.
