House Sized toilet - ?

I agree with the folks talking about the offset toilet flanges. Its a cheap and reliable way to change the wall to tank or bowl spacing and also the clocking of a toilet. There are also many seat height add on devices or lifted seats available through handicap or "old-folks" supply places that are sturdy enough to handle a big guy.
An alternate, although expensive, is to go with a full height marine toilet with a macerator embedded in the bowl bottom. It would be a significant plumbing change, but the "output" is fully ground and directed by about an inch to 1.5" hose to the tank, which could allow clocking the throne to a better position for more comfortable thinking. There are various resources, https://www.fisheriessupply.com/ being one of them (or at least they used to). I have used fisheriessupply multiple times for fittings and fixtures I want to be really waterproof or rough weather durable - and no, I do not work there. They are far from cheap, but I have found them reliable so far.

Our high rise toilet is a new Airhead Composting toilet. It is a household size toilet. I made a 2" riser so I could plumb a urine drain to the black water tank. We just finished a 17 day trip mostly dry camping with now two grey tanks. This set up relly simplifiies waiste solutions. Now, if we just had more fresh water capacity to match the 76 gallon holding capacity.

Anyone installed a Dometic 320 in a 30’ Airstream? Looks like there’s plenty of space. Would love to hear from someone who’s done it.

Well, there’s one way to find out...

What is the measurement from the center of the hole to the wall on that trailer. It is 9 inches on my 25 FB.

The 27FB have the toilet kind of tucked in at an angle (not a lot of room), and hard against the wall in the back. The dimensions on the schematic "look" like it will fit as a replacement, but curious if anyone on here has actually installed one of these "House Size" toilets in their Airstream, particularly any of you with a 27FB floor plan. Thanks in advance for your replies and advice...

Did you have any luck using an offset flange with the 320? I installed the 310 a few years ago in my 27' and had barely enough room from the center line of the toilet to the back wall. The only way I could fit it in place was to use a cut off type saw with a ceramic cutting blade and lop off the corner off the back off the 310. I was able to put the 320 seat on the 310 but the plastic garnish that covers the bolts and back of toilet could not be used.
It all works fine except I wish it would look better. Maybe the offset flange will work. Just wanted to know if anyone actually tried it with our black water tank inlet that are in the Airstreams. I'm thinking of ordering one. Please stop me if you already tried it and it doesn't fit.

Thanks!

Please let us know if the offset flange works! I've been chewing on it, but inasmuch as I am living full-time in my AS this summer, I hesitate to do something that takes away my only toilet if I screw up... ;-)

I have not seen an offset flange used in a trailer, so I'm not sure.

The only reason I can think of that an offset flange would not work is if the distance between the top of the tank and top of the floor is too close. Or, there is a tank adapter that uses part of that space.

An offset flange is longer than a straight flange. There are flanges with male and female ends, which could make a difference.

The only way to know for sure is remove the existing toilet, see what is there, and measure.

We just picked up our new 2018 28RBQ Saturday and I can testify that those bathrooms are not made for Humans. First thing is a new elongated toilet. Ok Ok we understand a lot of folks are a buck 10. No worries but for some of us thats a different story. I plan to modify the toilet door wall to accommodate "cough" us sub humans. I have a plan to make bifold doors with a decorative pattern to match the decor. We are just in the planning stage atm. We first need the dealer to fix/ replace the closet door that fell off during the first 2 hours of ownership after leaving the dealership and on our trip to break in our new dream machine. Wait wait there's that bad word, "BREAK" aways we will watch this thread for excellent owner in put. Best of luck all, happy trails
