CabanaCan is a company that was founded by Wayne Bourke in 1983. Wayne was in the construction business and realized the need for a washcar that could be used year round on the construction site as an alternative to the old outhouse style that was still being used.
The first unit was made out of milled cedar shell, as it was self supporting and could be used aesthetically in any environment. This unit utilized the grey water to flush. This product was sold to Atco of Calgary and subsequently changed in design to match the Atco trailers, with royalties paid to CabanaCan. This was an expensive unit to make and was used as a rental product.
CabanaCans official ownership was given to Waynes wife and daughter and incorporated in May 2000, which is as it stands today. Wayne Bourke is still the designer of new products and consults with the operations.

The 2000 industrial design used the RV technology and was completely self-contained; however, still requires power to heat this unit. This product was manufactured by Roadway Trailers of Edmonton, with royalties paid to CabanaCan. Canadian Waste had purchased several and were part of their rental fleet for many years. These were All-Season units for worksites.
As of April 2015, EXTREME-JON is now our partner for the heated, self-contained washrooms. They are CSA Approved and come in a variety of styles that are all heated.
