Your 25' probably has the toilet mounted up on a raised platform? Measure the height you need before going to the store. Did the replacement on our longer trailer. Had to saw off the old bolts to keep from damaging the plastic flange on the trailer. Used per for the water inlet. Used a riser kit. Get a couple flange gaskets and new bolts.
Airstream changed the valve on the toilet in our 25' because the could do it without removing the toilet.

Reviving this old thread to say Thanks to those that contributed since I was about ready to return the Dometic 310 I just purchased for our 2009 27FB because it didnít fit even though itís currently standard in the new 27s. I did have to remove and trim the vacuum breaker cover as shown in the pictures. I measured from the center of the lid bolt to the wall and then matched the angle with painters tape. After a rough cut with a saber saw (as shown), I finished smoothing the cut with a Dremel tool. The finished toilet is a big improvement over the Thetford that was in the trailer and they are now sold with a nice solid slow-close seat and lid. Feels just like home. I have a sprayer kit ordered and will install it when it arrives.

Did everyone opt for the standard height 19.75" unit?

I'm leaning towards the 14" low profile one as I have really young kids, and it would help them more than a standard height would help me.

I believe my original toilet is 16.5"?

We did but the height matches what we have at home and the grandkids are used to it.

I ordered the standard height one as the low profile unit is really meant to go on a pedestal type install.

In researching, seat heights seem to be inconsistent. With some showing 18" to 19.75" as I posted earlier. I believe the seat heigh is 18", and overall height is 20". My original toilet is 17.5", so I should be just fine.

Besides the forums another thing that helped us quite a bit as newbies was this book: http://www.amazon.com/Newbies-Guide-.../dp/B004SUOZCC

Other than that use a "c" in excited or else we will think that you are leaving all the time.

Again, welcome to the Aluminum tribe!

Know of any "newbie" type guides for older AirS's...? 1972. I'm looking for basic diagrams of the water system / gas lines. Need to learn. I'm new to all of this stuff.

Go to airstream.com. Click the company tab, then under the Factory Service heading find and click on Manuals. Input 70's and find '72. Both the owner manual and service manual is downloadable. The service manual will have what you are looking for.
