Bumper Dumper Toilet Helps People Go While On The Go

Ever see a new product and think, "I could have invented that?"

You might feel that way about the Bumper Dumper, a portable toilet that hooks up directly on to a trailer hitch, allowing a person to answer nature's call while camping or at a tailgate party.

The $69.95 Bumper Dumper toilet seat attaches to a five-gallon container that can be -- and hopefully is -- emptied after using, since there is no flush system.

Besides being attached to the trailer hitch, the trucking toilet can also be leaned up against a tree.

Although the device could be useful for many, InventorSpot.com couldn't help but dump on it.

"The obvious problem with using it in the city is that you'd be a bit visible. You can't very well pull over in Times Square, rig it up to the back of your truck and carry on like nothing is out of the ordinary," author Bob J. wrote in a review. "Even in New York, this is going to raise some eyebrows."
