New toilet suggestions for Argosy 26?

I'm looking for the best plug/play replacement toilet. Best = ease of replacement. If there is one that is slightly taller/deeper even better.

Has anyone replaced theirs and if so which did you go with?

Thanks

Dan

I installed an Aqua V in our Argosy 26'. I used the low profile unit because it sits on a platform.

Did the aqua v require any modifications ? How difficult of a job is it?

Thx
Dan

I put a new Thetford Bravura in mine, but it did require removal of the little plastic compartment over the rear top of the toilet, so the lid can be lifted.

I installed a new platform (because the old one was rotted) along with a new toilet flange/tank adaptor. Also removed the cover for the "secret" compartment behind the toilet. Never got around to making a new cover.
I also chose the hand flush instead of the foot flush model. Because the pedal on the foot flush would have been 8"+ above the floor.
Four years and 20K miles. It still works great.

Sealand Traveler here as well - no need to cut up the storage compartment behind toilet.

I put a new aqua magic v into my Argosy motorhome. It sits up on a small stand but it was a perfect plug and play. Make sure you get the low profile version. The handle flush or foot flush is your preference, I got the foot flush. Hope this helped

There should be two bolts, one on either side and they are covered with a plastic cap. If you don't see any, try twisting the toilet to the left or to the right.

If it is the original toilet. As I recall there is one bolt accessible behind the flush pedal, the other is accessed thru the removable plug inside the toilet bowl.
It's been 4 years do I could be wrong.

Under the pedal and a hidden one would make sense since I can't see them, I'll check tomorrow.

If the bolts are where you described, I assume a Aqua magic V will not be an easy swap out?
