I like the looks of that. Didn't know they sold foam ones at Home Despot.

Update: All fixed!!
Regarding the toilet issue (emitting smells due to raised floor) - I wanted to say thanks to all.

@Robertsunrus - Great advice on the Sani Seal - worked like a charm. It's actually made to fit both home and RV (says so right on the seal). I did some digging into this seal and it turned out to be the best and easiest solution. So much so that my repairman thanked me for purchasing the seal ( $12 from HD) and went out and purchased a few to keep handy in his truck for future repairs. He had not heard of these particular seals and after watching the video, I found on it's web page, he was hooked. Took him 20 minutes to lift the toilet and place the seal. We tested it by turning the Fantasticfan on HIGH - no smells!!! Anyone looking to replace the seal on their toilet should really look into the Sani Seal. Clean, easy, fast, wax free, inexpensive.

So, the new Australian Cypress floor looks fantastic and the toilet issue is fixed. My wife is happy - which makes for happy full time Airstream adventure traveling.

Thanks!!!

New floor, now toilet emits smell? New seal?

Thanks for the update! Good to know about the Sani-Seal. We really need a picture of the wood floor. You can't install new floor without a picture.

rather than cutting up flooring you can use two wax seals. they mesh together well. this is a pretty common fix in homes when tile is installed. just remember to measure first because you cannot seat the toilet and then lift it up to check if the seals are compressed without breaking the seal.

Trailer movement will trash standard household type wax toilet seals. AS being called a rolling earthquake is not exaggeration.

what movement would there be between the pipe and the stem of the toilet if it is properly connected?

Vibration and floor flex will eventually loosen the seal. Foam type seals are much better in a moving vehicle.
