Ceramic Toilet for 2009 25FB Flying Cloud

We would like to replace the original plastic toilet and upgrade to. A ceramic toilet. The critical measurement is from the wall to the centerline of the drop. We discovered the problem when trying to use Dometic 310.
According to Airstream the Dometic 310 is optional on the new Flying Clouds. There must have been a change since 2009. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Hi Jim,
'
My suggestion is to keep what you have. My 86 Limited has a plastic Thedford AquaMagic that has lasted 30 years and works well. I installed a Dometic 310 in my 66 Trade Wind. I think the 310 is plastic, and the 320 is the ceramic bowel. Anyway the ceramic was much heavier and really offered no appreciable advantage over plastic. The smooth plastic rinses well. No, it is not near as hard as ceramic, but a little care in cleaning is all that's needed.

You are right, the Dometic 310 style is larger and takes up a lot of valuable floor space. A 310 won't fit in my Limited.

Inland Andy mentioned once that Thedford makes the best toilet. He may be right. I find the 310 not the greatest design ever. The bowel is large and shallow. It's like going potty in a frying pan. The Thedford has a deeper bowel.

I didn't like the new Thedford AquaMagic as they don't have a drop tube. The bowel just empties into the lower part of the toilet and then gravity empties it into the black tank. The lower half of the toilet is "dirty" as I figure it. At least the Dometic has a down tube to the black tank.

My suggestion is to keep what you have. It seems like the newer toilets are designed to be cheap.

My 2008 Classic 25fb has the plastic Aqua Magic. I've researched the drawings for the Dometic and Thetford china toilets and they all appear because of the critical centerline. AS must have moved the toilet location a little bit in newer models. I figure I'll get a new Agua Magic if my current one needs replacing.
