Can I Have a Bathroom in my Mobile Office Trailer?

The 3 Bathroom Options for Your Mobile Office Trailer

Since mobile office trailers are used by many different industries for multiple purposes, a bathroom may or may not be a necessity. There are a few different options for mobile office trailer bathrooms.

  1. Bathroom inside the mobile office trailer
  2. Bathroom outside the mobile office trailer
  3. No bathroom

Bathroom Inside

There is a range of options for how an interior bathroom will work. One option is to have a bathroom with standard plumbing. Another option is to have a bathroom without plumbing.

Standard Plumbing Option
Some units have hookups to connect the mobile office trailer to the local water and sewage lines. This type of bathroom will function like a bathroom in a typical building. You will incur water and/or sewer bills.

The size of the bathroom varies. If you need an ADA bathroom, most suppliers can provide you with one.

Non-plumbing Option
Some mobile office trailers offer bathrooms without the plumbing connections. Generally, waste is collected in a wastewater-holding tank. With this system, a tank truck will come and remove the wastewater daily or weekly. The waste is then disposed of at a wastewater treatment plant. The removal of waste service may come from your supplier, or it may be something you need to arrange from a third-party. Be sure to find out your options when you speak to a dealer.

Bathroom Outside

There can be advantages to not having a bathroom in your mobile office trailer. Without a bathroom, you free up more square footage for additional employees or workspaces. One potential disadvantage to a bathroom outside of the mobile office trailer is that it can be inconvenient for staff or guests during bad weather.

If your mobile office trailer doesn’t have a bathroom but you need one for your site, you can always rent a portable restroom for a temporary amount of time. If you want something a little more luxurious, you can also rent a mobile restroom trailer. Restroom trailers are usually more comfortable, with varying sizes and configurations, including single-stall and multi-stall.

No Bathroom

Depending on the intended use of your mobile office trailer, you may not need a bathroom. For example, some mobile office trailers, such as temporary satellite offices, are located on properties that already have public restrooms available.
