Check the Suburban site for model #s and sizes. A catalog I have in front of me right now lists an NT-16S for $541.95 through RV Sales and Service in LaVergne, TN. but shopping around on the internet should get you into the mid $400 range. Check ebay.com because I have seen plenty of new Suburban furnaces there at a good price. Camping World has the NT-24 for $479 ($431.10 member price) but the H is 3" taller, 2 5/8" wider and 1/2" deeper. They may carry the NT-16 but not show it in their catalog.

The Thetford Bravura toilet (14"H) with water saver accessory lists at $200.95 and w/o saver is $186.95. The Aqua-Magic (12 3/4"H) is $148.95 for foot pedal flush and $125.95 for hand flush. The Thetford Aqua-Magic Aurora
(17 3/4"H) is a china bowl toilet listing for $231.95. Again, these are list prices in the same catalog so you could shop around and maybe get these models cheaper.

Camping World has the Bravura, Aqua-Magic and Aurora in their catalog so go to their site for prices.

baddog,
The most difficult part of pulling the furnace out of my Excella 500 was drilling out 8 rivets and unscrewing lower framework holding the tambour which hid the furnace from view. After getting that out of the way, it was a simple unscrewing of the main gas line (copper), disconnecting the electrical connection on the side, unscrewing the furnace exhause cover plate on the outside of the trailer and then pulling the unit from under the kitchen cabinet. On the install, I used putty tape around the furnace exit for a secure seal from water access and there is a rope washer that fits the exhaust plate from the inside. It was a simple job other than the framework. The access to your furnace may be easier than mine, let's hope.
