'73 Safari Galaxy 30

Hi Everyone,
I am in the process of replacing a galaxy 30 in my 73 Safari, I was wondering if anyone has gone though this. My main concern is that the Safari has limited space above the above floor black tank. I was thinking of a low profile bravura but some of the specs. list on there web do not add up (measurement from back to center hole is 11 on the bravura, its looks more like 10 is all i have). Any one else used this model? I have seen several suggestions for the sea/land lite but will have to compare more measurements tomorrow.

Thanks

The secret compartment behind the toilet is going to be the limiting factor on your choice of toilet. If you don't mind losing the door to that compartment, you can probably use a Bravurra low-pro. Measure the thickness of the door to the compartment first, to make sure removing it will give you enough room.

Follow Up

Ok, I purchsed an Aqua Magic 5. After comparing measurements from different manfactures this was the only that would fit without removing the compartment behind the toilet. If I had to do over I may have taken a chance and purchased the sea land travel lite, but there site did not give a specfic length from back to center hole which was important to keep the rear compartment.

Pros
1 It fits!!
2 It works.
3 it's white, and not a sun bleached yellow.

Cons
1 Its cheap. I mean it is made of thin plastic very simple design and appears to not be made to last.
2 It has a narow seat, also made of thin plastic.
3 water saver option is useless, very low water pressure with foot padel depressed half way.

Don't get me wrong this is good economical solution, I was just hoping for a product similar to the old galaxy 30. The galaxy 30 IMHO was a sturdy/better design long term.

Maybe this will help others making this decision in the future.

Below is before and after.
