    I'm too old to struggle with a heavy toilet cassette. Are there any trollies or wheels you can recommend?
    Cheers

    There are quite a few types of lightweight folding trolley on sale. Shows and caravan shops have them as do hardware stores. Lidl & Aldi sometimes have them as specials as well. Weights can vary between similar patterns so that's something to watch.

    Unless they come with bungee straps you will need a couple to hold the cassette on.

    I've found that the ones with slightly larger wheels work best.

    I purchased one with large wheels from Seeflow at the Malvern show £20.

    Hi.
    As above,bigger wheels means extra ground clearance,you may struggle with the cassette even if it has wheels on uneven ground.

    Yup.. we carry a small fold up barrow for such things ( but if the dump is a long way off ( as in more than 10 yards !! ) I carry it on the push bike :D

    Simple and free solution - don't fill it up so much and empty it daily - sorted(y)

    Have a folding Towsure trolley purely for this purpose, however it is quite noisy when wheeling on hard surfaces so not ideal if you are a very early dumper! Easy way to upset your neighbours. I prefer the option of emptying each morning having used only limited chemicals -there is only me in the van and the loo only gets used of an evening or an emergency!

    I use a shopping trolley .... er...... trolley. In other words discard the bag. A single elastic holds the cassette on & the wheels are probably 4" - 5" in diameter. The base folds & the handle telescopes when not in use so it's easy to store. It's better than any purpose-made trolley I've ever seen.

    Chinese bazaars in Spain sell them for about 20 Euros. Fold flat, lightweight, ideal.

    The C250 cassette with wheels and telescopic handle is as useless as the model Porta Potti that came with its own filler hose that was rendered useless by the necessities of hygiene. I use a Draper folding trolley which I sometime use or the Waste Hog which has a step to carry 'bog' cassettes.

    I agree, the small wheels dig into the ground when you're sitting on the cassette.:LOL:

    Edit: what happened to my multi-quote?

    I use a cheap folding shopping trolley.. takes up hardly any room and handy to use for any other heavy stuff that I may buy from shows, etc.... and drinking water bottles when filled at the taps

    Another vote for the shopping trolley. We use ours for the intended purpose when shopping with the bag and without the bag with a bungy for the cassette.
    Comes in handy for carrying the fresh water as well in our 25 litre container.
