Closet Flange help! Please read and help!

I have a 69 Sovereign International. The closet flange cracked and needs replacing. I took the old one off and measured the diameter. It is 3-1/2" across. When I went to the hardware store to get one, none of them measure out that size. All are either 4" or less than 3". Can you help me as to how you replace this flange? The RV dealers all have 3" flanges as well. Thanks,

Roger

Did you actually show the flange to the RV dealer? It is extremely hard to believe a standard three inch closet flange from any RV parts house will not fit your application.

Thanks for the replies. I didn't show them the flange. They said they didn't have one. I was basing that the ones at the hardware store wouldn't work because I measure the diameter of the old one and then measured the diameter of the ones in the store. There wasn't one that was close. Thats how I figured that it was a special size.

You can also go to United Rv on the Airport Freeway at Haltom Rd in Fort Worth. I've purchased a couple of those from them, they have the best selection of rv plumbing parts I have found in this area.

Thanks everyone for the help. The flange is a threaded one and was able to pick it up at an Airstream dealer. Thanks,

Roger
