New toilet options?

The original toilet in the coach is leaking from the supply side into the bowl. Also have a leak from the main seal I think as the floor got wet too. This unit has not likely seen any action for some time and I'm certain that some of the seals have just dried out and shrunk.
As I'm 5'11" with most of it legs I'm considering a new taller throne. Has anyone upgraded to a newer unit? I saw some nice china options at CW last week and wonder if I should splurg?
The old one needs to come out for repair so why not just do the job right?
Opinions??

Check out the Sealand traveler lite series. They are porcelain and come in 2 heights. We put in the lower model and love it - it fits in tight spaces. My only complaint about it is that it comes with a cheezy plastic seat - but it takes a standard household size seat so a replacement was easy. You can view the specs online at PPL they come in several colors and heights with or without sprayer.

We installed the Aqua-Magic Style Lite toliet

We installed the Aqua-Magic Style Lite toliet and are very pleased. We got the low rise version, which is still taller by about 3 inches than the factory installed Thetford we replaced. Got it because:

Cost was ok, under $175.00
front facing step for flushing
light weight even though it has a china bowl

We did not purchase the hand spray unit with the toliet. We just went down to Home Depot and got a less $$ kitchen sink sprayer which fit perfectly.

another option

I'd suggest giving this one a try. Leaks aren't a problem.

Tin Hut, wonder if Wal-Mart would start banning motorhomes if we started using the Bumper-Dumper?

We put in one of those porcelain jobs and we love it. It looks very luxurious and works great.
