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.

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.

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.
