How to raise the height of the toilet a couple of inches?

Thought provoking question of the day. I'm not a spring chicken and the current toilet fixture in the trailer ('73 Overlander) is a bit low to the floor for my old hips liking. What are the possible ways I can raise it a couple inches. I am in the process of tearing the whole bath apart so I can do this as part of the rennovation. http://www.airforums.com/forums/f46/...up-100164.html

Is there some sort of expansion flange I can use to screw into the black tank that will do what I want? Anybody know what the diameter and thread specs are on the toilet flange? I can measure the diameter easy enough, but the TPI count is harder on the eyes. Any thoughts or comments welcome.

Just Buy the Taller Version

They come in two heights.
Treat yourself to a nice, new one. Save time and ensure a better outcome.

I agree with Alumaholic and make it a toilet with porcelain bowl (easier to clean).

If you still want to raise yours here are some choices.

Yes, there is a riser for the toilet. We bought ours at Camping World. I installed a new Tetford with the riser flange.
