Yes, you should be able to. One suggestion, I don't know how old or tall you are, but I replaced the one in my 98 with the tall version and also added the 2 inch raiser to the bottom. makes getting on and off easier.
I am 70, 5'10 and had a hip replacement. Even my wife at 5'5 liked it better.

I suspect you can find a suitable toilet. Camping World and other RV sales/service dealers have plenty to choose from.

I don't think the flanges have changed much (if at all) over the years. Check www.thetford.com Thetford toilets were used in many Airstreams. Do a little digging on their web site and you'll find a cross reference list Find your original/current model and see what's currently available. Be sure to consider the space required behind the toilet and space required to flip open the cover and seat.

I used the Thetford Aqua Magic V and a Thetford toilet riser. The flange matched up.

With the rubber seal, it does take some downward force to get them seated.

The deep bowl on this model is nice also.
