The Modern 27’ Globetrotter Thread

I wanted to start this thread so owners would have a place to post question, information, and MODs on the modern 27’ Globetrotters.
I currently reside among the 23D Clan (a very active group). I am currently in the market for a new Globetrotter. I’m hoping to carry some if the enthusiasm from our 23D group over to this “New” Thread.
If you are a current or soon to be owner of a modern 27’ Globetrotter please consider this Thread your end all be all home for information, design ideas, repairs, and the all important OverKill engineered MODs, this forum is famous for.
So if your in, Sound Off!

When we get ours I would like to swap the toilet to an elongated bowl Dometic 320.
We installed a 321 in our 23D and it worked out great!
http://www.airforums.com/forums/blog...let-swap-2902/

Can someone give me the measurement from the center of the toilet base to the wall. And the distance between the back of the toilet and the wall?
My best guess is we will need approx 1 1/4” of space between the toilet and wall to have enough room.
See photo below to see measurements needed.

I am moving from at 23 intel fb to my new 27 2019 Globetrotter the end of the month. I love to modify and change things. Not sure why I would change the toilet. Don't spend a lot of time in there.

Looking forward to this thread.

Dave

Elongated bowl leaves room for well.....
Also 360 degree bowl flush is nice.
I have one on our current 23D and it’s a very nice to have.

One modification we made to our GT was adding more towel racks in the bathroom. I found the model that AS uses and bought them from Amazon. That has proved to be very useful.

When I get to my GT tomorrow I'll see if I can get those measurements for you.

There is so little space I that area of my Globetrotter I can't imagine squeezing more room for an alternate toilet unless you remove some of the lower cabinet next to toilet.
