TRASHAROO'S

Rubbish should be kept outside of your Camper and 4×4 as it stinks your vehicle out and leaks horrible fluid onto your seats and floor. We are excited to be able to offer a bag to the UK and European market that fits on your rear wheel to hold all that nasty smelling rubbish . After years of being woken early by gulls, magpies and foxes helping themselves to the rubbish we had neatly bagged up and stored overnight under our Campervans we decided this needs to stop. Personally we had just about had it getting up at 5.30am running around the campsite in our underpants picking up our rubbish and embarrassing items that the wildlife has displayed out on the grass for the whole camp to see.

We searched long and hard and couldn’t find anything that was any good in the UK - what was available cost over £100! We eventually found the Trasharoo and after being really impressed with its long standing as a quality product we are now the UK dealer with Trasharoos in stock ready to be posted out to you guys over here and in Europe. Because we are in the UK you wont be hit with any nasty import duty and the postage should be a hell of a lot cheaper than from the USA.

Looks a bit vulnerable to theft if you ask me.

A rucksack strapped to the spare wheel, couple of cuts and its off!!

Thieves won't care whats in it. They'll nick it first then worry about the contents later.

Anyway, if you really want to do that you can get an 85 litre rucksack from tesco's for half that price, chop off the waist belt, strap it on the spare wheel and you've got a trasharoo!!!

I would say if one is out remote wilding, getting nicked, although possible, would be remote, as the location. My previous was a T25, so know full well storage issues with waste.

Looks a excellent product to me.

Cheers.

Ps, you could also store fishing hooks :rolleyes2:

They really are very good. Comparing them to putting a Tesco ruck sack on the back of your van for half the cost would'nt be unlike saying you could get a transit tipper, strap a scrap caravan on the back and you have a motor home for a fraction of the price hehehehehe...

I would say the trasharoo is for people who have a small camper were the extra storage is welcome, especially when keeping rubbish contained and taking rubbish away from camp, especially if you are serious wild campers like we are. Lots of the overlanders use them.

get away most overlanders use carrier bags . nice clean and fit in small places or burn on the fire . a burnt tin rusts quicker . etc . you can burn most things . as for nappies use terry towel ones much more friendly .

A lot of overlanders leave fires with loads of tin cans left in them. Don't know why, but they seem to think their camp fires are hot enough to melt them.

Not us, we use the Trasharoo... Take only memories, leave only footsteps and all that. It doesn't matter if we are in Southampton or the Sahara, we always wild camp responsibly as many of you know.

no. there is a good reason for putting tin cans on fires .
1. animals dont trap their noses trying to lick the inside of can .
2 they rust away much quicker .
3. could cause bacteria that gets transferred from one thing to another if left with particles of food in them .
ideally its best to take the lids right off and after burning crush the can flat . hopefully no sharp edges then .
plus you could carry the crushed cans as they make good sand shovels for digging around tyres in tight places .
but as you say most get left behind .
trouble with many places you empty in a bin .they chuck it over a cliff or into a river bed .

Good points, never knew that. Still would be nice if cans were cleared away when burnt. Very true about how rubbish is dealt with too.

Might be useful if days away from civilisation, but I would worry about attracting cats, dogs, foxes & even bears with that in some places, and why spend money on something I currently do perfectly well for free?

We use a recycled supermarket carrier bag kept inside the van, nothing goes in it unless it is washed out first, cans are always crushed & food is always eaten, if not by us, then our dog loves scraps & plate scrapings, so there is no smell from our rubbish bag. One free carrier bag will last several days & if there is no where to dispose of a full one, it is easy to tie it up & put it in the outside access locker until we get to a litter bin.

Carrier bags are small enough to go in litter bins & free (unless you are in Wales, but we carry a couple of months supply with us anyway). The key thing is to minimise waste & always wash all traces of waste & grease before putting in the bag. Washing rubbish may seem daft, but use the dishes water after the dishes are done & it uses no extra water or heat & it makes a huge difference to hygiene when having to store rubbish for a few days.

We have used our system now for 40 years in boats, caravans & campers where access to rubbish disposal points may be several days apart & never had a problem. Thanks for the advert, but no use to me thanks.
