Replacing a Thetford Aqua Magic Galaxy Starlight

Has anyone replaced a toilet on an Airstream that sits on top of the black tank which is above floor level? I can't find a new one that is short enough. The one I have now is 10 1/2" tall. The shortest new one I can find is 14" tall which will not allow me access to the medicine chest behind it.

I've looked quite a bit for a toilet both in the new and used markets that fits correctly and came up empty. There are a couple of how-tos in these forums that describe altering (cutting) the area behind the toilet and make it look acceptable. That, and a $130 deal on a new Aqua magic did it for me.

To update; my Thedford toilet, I completely tore it apart, replacing cracked hoses, broken control arm, leaking water valve, missing flange seal, and fabricated a hose connection.
Believe it or not, the hardest part was bolting it back to the floor.

Update for anyone with a toilet on an above floor tank, I just installed a Thetford Residence low white toilet. It just barely clears the storage behind it, but it fits. A little high, about 19+ inches from floor to seat, but it works and looks good.

Toilet Install

Here is what the toilet platform looks like. Roughed in and finished.
