Toilet getting clogged? Yeah, that is not a problem we would wish on anyone especially in an RV. Luckily there are many options specifically made to work with RV toilets that will not get clogged and take up too much room in your black tank. We tested all the best RV toilet paper on the market today. It was a time consuming process but well worth it for us.
Why use RV toilet paper?
RV toilet paper is specifically designed to dissolve in water which makes it easier to flush. The dissolved toilet paper also takes up much less room in your black tank. While it may be pricier than normal toilet paper you will immediately notice the difference when flushing out your black tank. There will be less mass so you will not have to dump as often.
When choosing our top pick for RV toilet paper we chose to focus on three key points. The first being the amount in which it dissolved and ease of flushing. This was the real reason why we would consider buying an alternative toilet paper so it weighed heavily in our decision making.
The second factor was price. No one likes flushing money down the toilet. Some of the options below were far too costly. The third factor we considered was comfort. Many of the toilet papers were simply too scratchy and made for an uncomfortable rest of the day sitting and driving.
With all that in mind here are our picks for the top 10 best RV toilet paper options:
Scott Rapid-Dissolving Toilet Paper
Scott’s rapid-dissolving toilet paper dissolves four times faster than their standard toilet paper. This led to less building which makes it a great option for both boats and rvs. The tissue was still soft and did not leave us with any harsh feelings. For those who are concerned about the environment you can rest easily as these are FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) Certified from responsible sources.
Camco RV Bathroom Toilet Tissue
The Camco rv bathroom toilet tissue is a great option for RVers as it is readily available at many RV stores and online. The tissue is biodegradable and pretty much clog proof. We did note that the 1 ply construction wasn’t all that sturdy and required overlapping panels to not break through while wiping. It was soft enough but might not be suitable for those with sensitive skin.
Thetford Aqua-Soft Toilet Tissue
The Thetford Auqa-Soft has a great combination of soft feel and quick dissolving action. It is highly absorbent and we found ourselves using far less tissue paper compared to the other brands we tested. It is 100% biodegradable and dissolves quickly. Overall, this was one of the best we tested and would not hesitate purchasing this regularly.
Septic Tank Safe Toilet Tissue
Freedom living’s goal with this toilet paper is to allow you to spend more “quality time in the great outdoors or with your family instead of unblocking smelly toilets and dealing with filthy septic tanks.” We think they accomplished their goal and we appreciated the fragrance free product. This is a great option for those looking for a scratch free yet absorbent option on a budget.
Thetford RV/Marine Toilet Tissue
Another great option from Thetford. This may not be as luxurious feeling as the other option but it still sturdy enough to get the job done. We liked the textured and absorbent tissue along with the price. At only 1 ply it lasted a surprisingly long time compared to the other 1 ply options we tested.
Valterra Q23630 Softness 2-Ply Toilet Tissue
The Valterra Q23630 2-Ply is a luxurious option and probably the softest toilet paper we tried. It did not dissolve as fast as the competition but we do not see it clogging. The price is comparable to many of the 1 ply options so you are getting a good bang for your buck. If the toilet tissue was fully biodegradable we would have made this our top pick.
RV Toilet Paper (Biodegradable and Septic Safe in Plastic-Free Packaging)
Made by A LIttle Better Bags we found this toilet paper to be a little too pricy for the quality of the product. Sure it is soft and fully biodegradable but so are many of the other options we listed. The toilet paper was fine and we did not end up using as much as other brands so that may bring the effective cost down. Overall, there are better options but we wouldn’t avoid this one if it was the only option.
Seventh Generation Toilet Paper, Bath Tissue, 100% Recycled Paper
Seventh Generation is known for making high quality sustainable products and this toilet paper is no different. We appreciated the 100% recycled paper which makes this a very eco conscious choice. Beyond that it also is a soft 2 ply construction that is highly absorbent. Overall, this would be our top choice if we had the room to keep all the 48 rolls in our smaller travel trailer.
Firebelly Outfitters RV Toilet Paper
Firebelly Outfitters set out to make a great rv toilet paper and they certainly achieved their goal. We appreciated the sturdy two ply construction and fast dissolving action. We noticed that we did not go through as much toilet paper so although it is not the cheapest option it still give a good bang for your buck.
Dometic 379441206 2-Ply Toilet Tissue
The Dometic 379441206 2-Ply Toilet Tissue is one of the most popular options for RVers and campers on the market today. We aren’t really sure why as it is far costlier than many comparable 2 ply toilet tissues. I’m not saying to avoid this option but you can find a better deal for the same quality of product.
As you can see we went through a ton of toilet paper to figure out the winner. This was one of the messier product testings we have gone through so far. We hope you have a clean wipe and less junk in your trunk (black tank humor) with the options listed above.
