Here's a thought...

Thanks, Safari64
Safari64,

I am getting ready to extend my tub and cut back the toilet bench area of my '64 Tradewind. It is a beigeish color if you want it, maybe we can work that out...PM me.

Anyway, to add to this discussion - here's something cool to think of if you have the $$$$ for it. I wanted to have a toilet setup that mimicks more closely that of a system in a house, so I came across Vacuflush Technology. It's made by Dometic and there are three parts: Toilet which goes to a Vaccum Generator, which drains to your black tank. What is sooooo cool is that the three components are connected to each other by sanitation grade hoses so you can put the toilet anywhere you want! No odors, and the vaccum generator pump acts like a macerater and keeps your black tank from getting clogged with "solids." I spoke to a local rep in my area and he said the basic system (toilet and generator) would cost around $1200. Before you laugh into oblivion, remember that with this setup there ar NO limitations to where you put your components and odors and clogs are virtually eliminated. Here's the link if interested:

http://www.dometicsanitation.com/vf.asp

They even have a cool flash demo of how the system works. Thanks to all of you out there for the awesome advice - this is my first time putting my two cents in...

I have a vacuflush in my boat. I bought the boat new in 1997. It has worked well. I have had zero issues with the system. I could not say that in my previous 1989 boat with a electric pump type system. I can not speak to cost since it came with the boat.

Any of you have any pictures of how you've retro-fit a new style toilet into the 'bench'?

here's what I ended up doing.

I rebuilt the missing part of the 'shelf' from a damaged tub/shower unit that fell off of a truck on the hwy.

this is the 'before' and 'during' shots. 'after' is soon to follow...

Very well done. I like your deck replacement. Put the fascia/kick panel on there an no one will realize it as ever fixed.

thanks.

I made it 2-piece so that it can be removed in the future. that's why the two trim screws are there.

Also, had to move the flange on the black tank back about 4 inches.

still debating on whether to replace the screen on that window....
