Portable Toilet Rental on the Moon?

While reading our daily news, we found out that there is in fact, a portable toilet sitting on the moon.


NASA recently released new images of the Moon, clearly showing a porta potty left by the famous astronauts, Buzz Aldroun and Neil Armstrong during their historic mission in 1969.  The recent picture from NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO), can be seen below:

We wonder if NASA made their own porta potty, or whether they bought a porta john for sale? If it were a portable toilet rental, that would be one expensive bill!  Now we’re sure that they didn’t have a luxury restroom trailer rental available back then, but If they did we’re sure they would have went with one of America’s Best Restroom Trailer rentals around and they may have even rented Restroom trailers in DC!

An Urban Legend is circulating around that a 5 year old company named Don’s Johns may or may not have played a hand in this special outdoor event when it came to the use of portable johns on the moon.  Rumor also has it that Don’s Johns wanted to service the area shortly after the astronauts left, but decided to leave it as a piece of human history.

Did Don’s Johns really provide the portable toilet that went to the moon?  I suppose that secret lies within the spirit of our founders, Thelma and Don Rainwater…

We may not have been on the moon, but if you’re looking for a portable toilet rental, restroom trailer rental, porta john for sale to be at your outdoor event, Don’s Johns is here to serve you where and when you need it. With the right selection and all the portable restroom rentals you could ever want, you can’t go wrong when it comes to one of Don’s Johns.  Call us today at 888-331-6323 or email sales@donsjohns.com for your portable toilet rental needs.

Porta Potty Rental Options for Event and Construction Needs

Every day we are met with more and more things that can simply amaze you. I bet you didn’t know that there is more than meets the eye with standard porta potty rentals. The porta potty’s you are used to seeing are basic and perfect for parks where a restroom otherwise would not be available.

However, there are many other porta potty options to choose from and each holds their own special touch to whatever venue you are hosting. Porta potty rentals are available for rent to the general public. It doesn’t matter if you are having a private and small baby shower celebration or a large wedding, because Don’s Johns has your next event covered.

Handicap Accessible

Make it easy for those in wheelchairs or who need the added support of handrails to use the restroom. Our

luxury restroom trailers meet the ADA specifications. They include beautiful Corian counters, are climate controlled, and measures 8’ x 6’ to easily move around to the sink and toilet areas.


We’ve even thought of the hard working men and women in construction who are working on unfinished highrise buildings. Our hook construction portable toilets are an added convenience to prevent workers from having to come back down to the ground to use the restroom. With convenient supplies such as hand sanitizers, hand wipe and foam stations, and even portable hot and cold running water sinks, sanitization is a breeze.

Family and Wedding Trailers

Make sure you think of everyone at your next event. Some restrooms are not fully equipped for family to change and care for their baby’s needs. Don’s Johns has luxury trailers that include a family suite. They are large enough for a bench or few chairs and include a baby changing station, full length mirror, hot and cold running water, soap, and an automatic air freshener. These work great for wedding parties as well.

Shower Trailers

If you’re ever at an all-day sporting tournament, it’s packed with food and fun. However, with all the sweating involved, you will get uncomfortable quick. You may not want to eat snacks or a sit down dinner. However, with the shower trailers, teammates can take a hot shower in one of the three shower stalls.

Contact Don’s Johns today to arrange for a porta potty rental for your next special event!


Portable Restroom Rental: The New Advertising Standard?

Next time you’re using a portable restroom rental, don’t be surprised to see an advertisement. Did you know that the Union of Concerned Scientists reports the average American being exposed to about 3,000 advertising messages a day, and corporations around the world are spending over $620 billion annually to capture their audience’s attention?  That’s right, ads are everywhere and there’s no escape.  portable restroom rental

Taking advantage of selling ad space in a portable restroom rental  has become increasingly popular, and this trend is only on the rise.  Planners for Concerts, Sporting Events, Construction and Special Events realize that their money isn’t going down the drain when they advertise in or on their portable restroom or restroom trailer rental.

The expansive reach of Don’s Johns makes the portable restroom rental a medium that is even more attractive than you’d imagine.  Serving thousands upon thousands of people in the Virginia, Maryland, Washington DC Metro region and beyond year after year; we work closely with advertisers to help maximize your revenue and overall event success.

The advantages of advertising on your portable restroom rental or restroom trailer rental:

Port-a-Johns hold more than one advantage when it comes to advertising.  The cost of advertising on portable restroom rentals carries a lower average cost than both print and television advertising.   Portable restroom rental advertising also extends the life of exposure to the consumer.  Attendees of concerts, events and even construction site workers often wait in line to use a portable restroom and are exposed to a beautifully wrapped portable restroom rental.

Restroom Trailer Rental, Event Restrooms, Luxury Restroom Trailer, Restroom Advertsing, Portable Restroom Rental, Rent a Porta John, Porta Potty RentalA 2003 study proves the acceptance of this medium, showing that 75% of portable toilet visitors view porta potty ads positively and didn’t mind viewing the ad before and during their visit.  Once the attendees are inside a portable toilet, they may not even realize that they have become the captive audience to the perfectly placed placards on the inside of the door or wall inside a portable restroom.

Your portable restroom rental will reveal its hidden beauty and shine when wrapped and delivered to your location.  Don’s Johns offers several opportunities for advertising both inside and outside of our portable restrooms and restroom trailers with a full line of in-stock restroom wraps for the outside of our restrooms as well as custom wraps that can be ordered for the outsides of our portable restroom or restroom trailer rentals.
