Outdoor weddings (farms, wineries, the great outdoors)
Wine club dinners out on the vineyard
Personal homes for larger parties
On set for television shows
And any other event that needs restrooms for their staff or guests
We bring luxury restroom trailers to any event. Our restroom trailers are built for off road capabilities. That means we'll bring our restroom to your event in the middle of nowhere. You've spent time and money creating the wedding of your dreams at a beautiful outdoor destination. Put the finishing touches on your event with an elegant restroom for your guests. Your guests will appreciate having the comforts of home when it's time to use the facilities. No one wants to use a porta-potty, so why would they when they are in formal wear?
Please call us for our special multi-day rates
Ashley Vizcaino, 28, grew up working with her dad at Vancouver’s Advanced RV Center. After graduating from Prairie High School, she earned a bachelor’s degree in business administration and accounting, and a master’s degree in business administration. In October 2014, she combined her experience and education to launch Formal Flush, LLC. The company supplies luxury restroom trailers to a wide variety of events, such as outdoor weddings, corporate retreats, family reunions, wine club dinners out on the vineyard, and on-set for television shows. Not your regular port-a-potty, Formal Flush’s trailers feature heat, air conditioning, hands-free flushing, hot water, LED lighting and spacious countertops.
The company is busiest during the summer months, with 37 deliveries between July and September last year. You can find the trailers up and down the I-5 corridor, including bridal shows in Vancouver, Easter Egg Hunts in Portland, and even saving the day in Olympia when South Sound Radiology Clinic’s septic system went down.
The business is a “complete family affair” – Vizcaino’s dad delivers, her husband picks up, her sister helps at wedding shows and her mom helps with the cleaning and maintenance. The company was profitable in its first full year, and Vizcaino hopes her year-round promotion plan will help increase demand for Formal Flush services for construction projects and emergency situations.

Educational/professional background: I’m a Prairie High School grad and have a bachelor’s degree in business administration and accounting, and a master’s degree in business administration from Concordia University in Portland. I grew up working in the family RV business with my dad and envisioned continuing that. With my degree, I’m also able to do contract accounting for small businesses.
How — and when — you got started in your business: We were talking one day to a manufacturing representative at our family’s RV shop, when he mentioned he’d seen trailers with restrooms for wedding venues. I thought it was a great idea. Starting a luxury restroom trailer company was a perfect fit. We already had the connections and vendors to call on, so we immediately started researching the market and how we could use the resources of our RV company to bring this new company to life. Formal Flush Restrooms was established in 2014. Our restroom trailers have many similar features to a recreational vehicle such as heat, air conditioning, flushing toilets, and running hot water. They’ve been a huge hit in the outdoor wedding market. It’s been a smooth year, busy with no surprises.
