    This is an awesome unique product, and as I get older, I need more creature comforts to make my camping experiences more enjoyable.

    Quick Pitch En Suite privacy tent.

    I currently have a Lightspeed pop up, but I don't like the hassles of deploying, staking it down, and packing it up. This solves all those problems, plus more smaller inconveniences.

    I have a Gamiviti rack and I used his awning receiver female part to attach to the roof rack. The male portion I had him custom build for me so I can easily remove it. For the fabric to hang down vertically I have to be 11" out from the receiver end to clear the fender flares.

    I bought the soft bag model instead of the box because I didn't want a permanent mount. I reinforced the mount with a 72"x3"x1/4" aluminum bar that I cut to size and I drilled holes into and attached to the backing of the arms (inside the bag). I had to put in a plastic wedge to angle up the arms so they would be level.

    Future plan is to use an Eccotemp L5, power with a power outlet to my auxillary battery, propane tank in a milk crate on top of the roof rack and water source from Sceptor water tanks.

    You'll prob want to make sure the bottom touches the ground in case you need to stake it down, those things are almost unusable in nominal wind.

    Edit: and let me know if you want to sell your lightspeed.

    I won't be in there very long to do my business..... whatever it is...... I'm a guy.
    Plus I have at least 1 side completely blocking the wind.
    I don't foresee the wind being a problem.

    I have had my eyes on those ever since I saw Andrew White have one mounted to the side of his new Troopy build.

    I had my Kelty privacy shelter demolished in the wind. Those look pretty slick​

    I cheaped out and bought one of these but it's too small for a 6"1' 200+lb dude. For a shorter thinner person it might be ok.

    I decided to get something with a bit more room for changing and whatnots so I have this now. Looks like setup and teardown is pretty simple. Packs up fairly small for what it is. Planning on giving it a try in Moab in a couple of weeks.

    Moab is where the wind destroyed mine. I recommend good sand stakes and guy it out real well. Kelty sent me a new one no questions asked.

    Overall I'm happy with my Porta-Privy. It's cheap and so I can leave back at camp without worry. I can also set it up away from the vehicle.... because most social and dining activities seem to revolve around the vehicle.

    Hi Dr Gil, Where did you bought the QuickPitch en Suite?, is there a dealer in the US?

    I bought mine from Drifta in Australia. Not sure if they’re still shipping to the US now that they have a distributor. Been using it since last March and it’s awesome.

    Good luck getting anything shipped from QuickPitch. They just stopped responding to emails (several) after I received an invoice.

    I've owned and used several different shower/toilet privy's over the years but I'm still using the original, and overall my favorite, Outback Porta Privy albeit with a ton of sewing and reinforcement panels at the bottom (stake areas) sewn in. But one of the best $50 I've spent on camping gear! Don't know the story about Outback but they, AFAIK, were the original...but for some reason closed shop. A few downstream copies have surfaced. Decker's was supposed to come up with the same product but better with more substantial/durable materials but no tell about it on their current website.
