Base cannot exceed 14" diameter
Bowl cannot exceed 16" diameter
Little to no toilet structure behind the bowl or bowl diameter would have to be smaller than 16".

Height has to be low profile because feet rest 6 inches below platform.

A crude visual:

Get a step stool or build a low platform for your feet.

Need a wee weewee-er.

Platform for feet is an option, but one I am trying to avoid. The stepping in and out of the shower pan is weird enough. But I can build up a box platform if needed. Still have to watch the height of the toilet as the walls curve more inward the further you elevate.

Protagonist - I think your suggestion of a Thetford Aqua Magic toilet may be a good choice, and there is one in china instead of plastic. The overall diameter is a little more than what I measured, but at only 12" height I can squeeze in a little more diameter.

Maybe link will work:

I could just go with the Home Depot bucket and plastic loo seat - It would match the '61 fabric on the couches. Husband says no, he wants the china toilet.
Sorry, trailer and paperwork locked away at fairgrounds barn for the winter.

Hey Grayling and Ladyfern
I installed the Dometic Zealand Travler Lite low #302611101, looks like it has been replaced with model #310. Fits perfectly.

A little off topic but, does the toilet sit directly on the black tank or is the tank enclosed in a box with the toilet on top. Might help me with my Avion which has a similar bathroom setup. Thanks, Jim.

Tank is not really enclosed in a box, so to speak. More like boxed-in. Sides are shower pan, aluminum walls, and bulkhead wall. A piece of plywood sits directly on top of the tank, then a layer of decorative fiberglass board.

Why not rebuild the old Swirl A Matic? I took mine apart, from the 62 Bambi, and cleaned out all the corrosion and lime buildup and it works like new and fits.

I'm looking very closely at that Aqua Magic style ll.

I was going to fix the Swirl A Matic but metal parts in the flush assembly have corroded and broken. Other parts quite soft. Too bad, because bowl looks like it had never been touched.

I saved it though in case a base comes along that works.

I LOVE the Mickey Mouse one! LOL! And, Grayling, you are right, I could paint a plastic one with Krylon and I've given that some thought, too. But the refrigerator and sink are white, so I could get away with a white one.

By the way, I see a Dometic 210 RV Toilet Bone Traveler Lite Low Profile W/ Hand Spray at Dometic 210 RV Toilet Bone Traveler Lite Low Profile W/ Hand Spray for $165 with free shipping. It's 100% china. Not sure if the "bone" is the color, though. Any thoughts on how that would "fit" us, er, I mean the Bambi, of course.

The Dometic 210 is 19 1/2" from front to back and a touch over 12" tall. The Aqua Magic is 20" from front to back and 12" tall. Both seem larger than Grayling's picture. But Beaker63 says the Dometic 310 fits fine. The Dometic 310 is 19" from front to back and 13 3/4" tall, still larger than Grayling's picture. Did the size of the head change during the three years?

Need a wee weewee-er.

I'll measure the base again tomorrow. 19 inches sounds a little too big, may start to overhang the front edge. But I'll double check. Is the base 19" front to back, or the bowl area? If bowl, then it would likely be okay.
