'64-65 toilet replacements...

I'd like to get a thread going here to see what others have done when replacing their original under-mount toilets in the 64/65 models...

There has to be some really creative ideas out there for adapting newer toilets so that I don't have to 'reinvent the wheel' on this one...

I too am interested in this one. Are there such things as elongated bowl RV toilets?

That's because the rat (four legged kind) that used to live in the trailer, went everywhere else but the toilet.

I've got a Sealand (Mansfield) Traveler 510. The P.O. had "installed" it with a "custom" cut board to raise the height to meet the bench height. I correctly installed it using a riser. It required trimming the bench slightly to let the bowl thru, but seems to fit just right.

The Traveler Lite has also been recommended by many other forum members here.

I cut the bench off (broke it taking it out, and once I'd seen the underside of the bench rim decided there was no way I was using something as hard to keep clean as that) and will use a standard toilet, probably a Sealand Traveler, when I replace it. The bench looks like a good idea - hey, hide the toilet, kind of nice - but hygiene-wise it seems like a nightmare.

To re-trim the bathtub, I plan on replacing the whole lower front panel in a continous section going around the bath and under where the sink goes, so hopefully it'll look like it was designed that way, rather than being cut up. If I could figure a way to build something that would cover the toilet while being easily removable, I'd do it, but I don't have any ideas offhand.

Patch piece needed

Does anyone have a piece of the toilet bench they removed left over?

I need a flat piece about 8"x4" to patch a hole PO made in my 64.

Thanks, Safari64

you could make an easy patch by wetting a piece of glass cloth with resin, over wax paper....on something flat?

once it dries, just glass it into the cut out area.

Thanks Doug,
That's what I'll do if I can't find a piece. I was hoping to get a piece of an old 64 bench, mostly for color matching.

Were they all the same colour? Mine is a sort of horrible green. Not avocado (I'd prefer that) but a little lighter. But others I've seen looked beige or tan.

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...
