toilet

we have a 2005 International (28') permanently positioned on our property. We will be living in it for a year while we build our home - then it will be guest quarters. we want to completely remove the toilet and storage tank and replace with a regular toilet with a direct connection to our water and septic system. Any problems with doing that? Anyone out there done this?

No problems doing it. What is the driving force behind it though. Don't like the operation of the RV toilet?

Seems like a lot of extra work than just connecting the trailer drain to the septic inlet and dumping them every few days.

With no trap between the septic line and gray and or black tank the septic gasses can flow back up the sewer line through the tanks and up out the roof vent which can cause odor problems through roof vents or windows at times. Normally closed dump valves prevent this when connected to sewer.

I would recommend finding a place to put the tank and rv toilet so you can put them back someday if you want to sell the trailer down the road

Even with a residential toilet you will need a vent stack of some sort. Every home has at least one vent stack, many have multiple vent stacks depending on the floor plan.
