Because every aspect of event planning influences the overall guest experience, special consideration should be given to your event restrooms. We’ve compiled a few tips to help you navigate the portable restroom industry and choose the best bathroom options to create a lasting positive experience for your guests.
Portable Restroom Trailer vs. Porta-Potty
Not All Portable Toilets Are Created Equal: Pictured are a fully operational portable restroom trailer and unplumbed porta-potties in Portsmouth, VA.
If comfort and convenience are important attributes in your event plans, a portable restroom trailer is the better option versus a traditional, unplumbed porta-potty. Look for minimum standard amenities in your portable restroom trailer search:
- Flushing toilets
- Sinks with running water
- Interior and exterior lights
- Air-conditioning and heat
- Paper products and hand soap
Operating requirements vary by company. Details on portable restroom trailers by Royal Restrooms® are available here.
Portable Restroom Trailer: Size Matters
Plan for enough restrooms to accommodate your group size with minimal wait time. Some restroom rental websites have size charts or calculators to assist you. Keep in mind that food and beverage consumption affects the number of restrooms, or stalls, needed. When in doubt, ask a vendor for assistance.
Multiple-stall restroom trailers accommodate large crowds with minimal wait time.
Contact a Royal Restrooms event professional about available trailer sizes for your event restrooms.
Choosing the Right Model
Private stall bathroom trailers are ideal for weddings and private events. Pictured is a completely private women’s bathroom stall.
Match portable restroom styles to your event style. Festival planners tend to choose large, multiple-stall restroom trailers to serve large crowds; whereas, wedding and private event planners prefer smaller bathroom trailers and often upgraded, more luxurious models.
If entertaining guests with physical disabilities or parents with baby strollers, broaden your restroom trailer search to include models specifically designed for handicap accessibility:
- Easy access ramps
- Spacious and private interiors
- Fully ADA compliant
A spacious and private, handicap-accessible stall is included in this ADA compliant restroom trailer.

Service with Portable Restroom Rentals
Seek out more than just a functioning bathroom for your event restrooms. Look for evidence of excellent service among your vendor(s) of choice:
- Read client reviews on portable restroom company websites and third party sites. Consider reviews about both restrooms and company representatives. Positive reviews about delivery drivers and setup crews are good signs that quality service stretches beyond a signed rental agreement.
- Ask for referrals from satisfied friends/family and event planners who have rented restroom trailers in the past.
- Inquire about services that add to guests’ experiences, like stereos and bathroom attendants.
- Look for services that add to your own client experience, such as event planning assistance, willingness to work with other vendors and to satisfy unique restroom needs, etc.
Ask event planners and vendors for their preferred restroom trailer rental company.

Savannah, Georgia – Royal Restrooms® kicks off a new decade of portable restrooms rental service with a national retreat in Texas Hill Country. Company founders and nationwide owner-operators met recently for a back-to-basics style retreat designed to build relationships and stronger teams.
Royal Restrooms office locations span a footprint from east to west coasts. “The goal was simply to bring our national team together and reconnect in person, learn from each other, celebrate and be rejuvenated,” says David Sauers, the company’s CEO.
The national brand is recognized across event industries and by countless guests. Maintaining a prominent presence in the marketplace depends greatly on the team’s ability to consistently deliver high standards of service. Sauers and business partner Robert Glisson established that principle when they opened the first Royal Restrooms office in 2004 in Savannah, Georgia.
Their vision has attracted the kind of franchise owner-operators who take pride in being part of a national team and are dedicated to providing the Regal Portable Restroom Experience™ in their local markets. Consider the unpromted affirmation of an owner of Royal Restrooms in Florida who says he is “honored to be a Royal Restrooms team member,” or an owner of Royal Restrooms in Washington who doesn’t think twice before meticulously detailing his portable bathroom sinks with a toothbrush.
“My hope was that everyone at the retreat would return to their markets excited about a new beginning,” says Glisson, the company’s COO. “After a few days of idea sharing and ranch-style team building exercises, I believe we were all able to leave with fresh perspectives.”

When scouting outdoor venues for an upcoming special event, the thought, “It would be the perfect venue if only it had restrooms,” is a thing of the past. The availability of luxury portable restrooms is shaping the outdoor venue landscape and opening up opportunities to create events of a lifetime.

Royal Restrooms of Utah, local rental provider of Utah portable restrooms, is a trusted source for luxury portable bathroom rentals each weekend, June through October, at the unique venue.
Portable restroom trailers provide a sensible option for outdoor event restrooms. Royal Restrooms® aims for higher standards, delivering on sensible portable restroom solutions plus providing a regal portable restroom experience™ for event guests.

Savannah, GA – December 6, 2013 – With the recent passing of Thanksgiving and World Toilet Day, we were reminded to be thankful for all good things, especially our toilets. Without the invention of the flush toilet, there would be no luxury portable bathroom, no Royal Restrooms, and oh, what a dismal world it would be.
In honor of the toilet and its famous sidekick toilet paper, we collected a few historical, or hysterical, fun facts for your reading enjoyment and portable restroom education.
- British nobleman Sir John Harrington is credited with inventing the first flush toilet in 1596. His name is thought to be the origin of the slang term “john,” a popular name for the toilet. A Royal Restroom wouldn’t be the same without the flush toilet, aka “throne.”
- The Chinese are credited with inventing toilet paper in 1391 during the reign of the Hongwu emperor. Each sheet measured 2 feet by 3 feet, indicating that His Highness must have greatly valued a clean hiney. Every Royal Restroom is stocked with premium paper products, emperor-approved.
- The first toilet in the White House was installed in 1825 during the presidency of John Quincy Adams. At that time only the wealthy could afford indoor toilets. Up until the last decade, the same held true for luxury restroom trailer rentals, which would run into the thousands of dollars per rental. Royal Restrooms revolutionized the industry and made bathroom trailer rentals affordable for everyone.
- All living U.S. Presidents have had the fortunate opportunity to experience a Royal Restroom. From national party conventions to Chelsea Clinton’s wedding and Barack Obama’s inauguration, Royal Restrooms have graced presidential events for nearly 10 years. You don’t have to be a president to enjoy Royal Restrooms. They were made for you!
Ancient Chinese royalty and British noblemen would be honored to see that their inventions made their way into contemporary Royal Restrooms. See the bathroom features and amenities that transform portable toilets into the regal portable restroom experience™, fit for royalty and enjoyed by “commoners” everywhere.

November 19, 2013 – Yep, it’s true. Google it. Today is indeed World Toilet Day. Greetings from the throne, the loo, the potty, the john, or whatever your preferred name is for the wonderful toilet! Toilets are our business, so of course, we love them and you should too. Without them, we would be like the 2.5 billion people on the planet who lack access to basic sanitation.
World Toilet Day, officially named by the UN General Assembly, was created to draw greater attention to a global sanitation crisis. It hasn’t always been proper to openly discuss the human call of nature. Get over it. World-wide problems associated with the lack of decent sanitation and clean water are astounding and in many cases a matter of life and death.
First World Problem Gives Insight Into Third World Crisis
We can relate to the desperate need to provide decent, basic sanitation service to everyone. As the direct result of a traumatic, germ-ridden porta potty incident involving two young children 11 years ago, the founders of Royal Restrooms dedicated their life’s work to developing a sanitary outdoor restroom alternative. From special events to disaster relief situations, we’ve spent years educating the American public about clean and safe restrooms.
Research in the development of our own sanitary arguments led us to staggering global statistics that deserve awareness among everyone who is fortunate enough to have a simple toilet, clean water, and a bar of soap. This list can barely be called the tip of the iceberg:
- Three things most of the world cannot do: take a hot shower, get clean water from the tap, and flush away yesterday’s dinner.
- In 3 days, the amount of untreated fecal matter in the world would fill the Superdome.
- Lack of sanitation is the world’s leading cause of infection.
- Diarrhea is the second leading cause of death in children under age 5 in the world. It kills more children, around 1.5 million each year, than malaria, AIDS, and measles combined. Diarrhea can be prevented with sanitation and proper hand washing.
- Women and girls are at risk for personal safety and loss of dignity. In many areas, where they must venture out to use the bathroom in the open, females must go in groups because they are tormented by ridicule and risk being kidnapped and/or sexually assaulted.
There are numerous ways to get involved, from making financial donations to tweeting #WeCantWait for the cause. Learn more at WorldToiletDay.org. Join us in raising awareness. Share this blog on your social networks. And don’t forget to thank your toilet!
