Anyone have experience with Air Head toilets?

Here is a link to the Air Head composting toilet, it received a fairly decent write up in this issue of Pacific Yachting. Has anyone had experience with it?

How it Works

There's another thread here that has some information on those and other composting toilets. Search for "composting toilets"...

From my research, it looks like the Air Head is the way to go. I'm not a fan of holding tanks as an Ex-RV'er. The Air Head processes urine separately which I like. In one review I read it was suggested you could plumb the Air Head to have a holding tank that only held urine; I'm not to keen on that but some might be. I used to be an orderly during my university days, part of my job was to empty the catheter bags just before shift change, so after emptying many thousands of gallons of urine - no big deal.

I did check the composting toilets thread; it was useful. Here's another link:
