Is your toilet too high?

Well, I have searched through all the threads about toilets to see if this been been mentioned, but I can't find anything about it, so here goes...our 19' 2006 Bambi's toilet is too high for comfortable throne-sitting...for us, anyway...we are not particularly short, but we aren't tall either.

So we built a 3-inch platform to put in the bathroom...just a frame of 2x4s with a piece of wood on top fashioned to fit the space. Then covered with vinyl to somewhat match the surroudings... The vinyl is also easy to keep clean. Voilá...problem solved. Pics below...

Happy Throning,
TB

It was meant to be silly, acutally. I don't really own these boots ( any longer).
I think that your rplatform idea is excellent.
Our toilet is actually a little bit too high as well, but the space in front of it serves as standing room for the bathroom sink, which is very low due to the rear window location in our Overlander. Otherwise, I would shamelessly copy your most splendid idea.

That's a very good idea. I considered doing that, but instead we opted to replace our toilet with a lower model. I like Uwe's boots though too

Now if we could just do something to give you more knee room when the door is closed. (The 23' has the same bathroom)

Thats a good one.....not too high for us and I'm short too, but the total space is somewhat restrictive.
