I thought about building a Johnny clone, but $300 in pipe fittings before I even got started, and I passed on the idea.


Went with an EcoSafe for more frequent use (weekends and small group multidays) and will use a 20mm can for the big trip should I pull a permit.


I'll DIY damn-near anything, but outside of building a nice seat for a 20mm can, am passing on DIY-ing this round.


I appreciate Whitewater Worthy's accessory box. IMHO dedicating the time and space to a 20mm can for your seat and TP is a waste of volume and weight (unless your plan is that it doubles as a spare tank). Accessories could be in a much narrower/lighter ply/plastic/aluminum box. If you think about it, your seat can get wet; you just want dry TP.

Here is a link to my johhny partner build. My fittings where $200 with shipping. More if you need a cone but i live close to a scat machine.. love my johnny, we have 3 in my group, 2 are clones one is the real deal so getting extra tanks on big trips is not a problem.. https://www.mountainbuzz.com/forums/...s/51371?page=4

We use the scat machine most times but I have a lid with a clean out as well. I am not aware of a double wall requirement. Even the $800 Johnny is still single wall.
First I’ve heard of the double wall requirement was last summer on the Rogue. They didn’t like my gamma-lidded 5-gal bucket because it wasn’t double walled. They gave me a handful of wag bags to use. Maybe plastic should be double walled?

Not my experience.

I built these for my eco safe groover and seat, one for each. That way I could save weight, hang from frame and tie down. Less than 1/2 the weight of a surplus rocket box.
