Saniware help

I understand that parts are not available anymore for my 1958 Saniware Toilet. I was wondering if anyone else has been able fabricate or maybe even use the Rubber Seal for the Flapper.

I am thinking that it may be time to replace this vintage crapper! I have been able to salvage the stove, refrigerator and heater but the crapper may just be ......... well..................

Sorry I cant really help you.

I am sure something can be made to work if you just knew what.

That vintage crapper looks pretty cool to me, if it were mine I would want to use it.

Maybe my post will bump your thread up so someone who knows can answer.

I really was trying to keep it but................this is one item that I don't want any trouble with. I was thinking of modifying the bowl and using a different Flapper Valve but then what happens when the Flush Valve has trouble.
I installed a Dometic 310 in our MH a couple of years ago. It has been a great purchase and low maintenance.
After your post though I am once again wondering about saving this relic.

I'm restoring my '64 Safari and have just purchased an unmolested bathtub and toilet shelf along with the original toilet, which I would like to use so I'm just searching this forum to see if anyone has found any source of parts for these or if someone would at least explain how they work. What is that big plastic pole on the back of the toilet?

That is the steel pipe that supplies water to the toilet.
It was still attractive too bad it needed work and no parts available.

I guess I've figured out that is the air gap. I took it apart and put it back together and it looks good. I thought the Airstreams all had automatic toilets, but this is one of the manual ones. There is a valve in the bench that I guess you have to turn on and off manually and also step on the peddle to open the flap. That all looks real good. Except for it needing a new seal on the flapper, it looks great. It would be nice to find the parts to make this automatic though.

I just bought a new Dometic 310 for my restoration. Last thing that I want when using it is to have to work on a toilet! especially one that would be hard to find parts for.
Not an easy task since I had to remove the old fitting and fiberglass the old hole.

If I can't make this thing work perfect, I'm keeping the new toilet I installed a couple of years ago. I mainly wanted to get my bench back the way it was and since the toilet was included and it's porcelain rather than plastic, I'm thinking maybe. Except for the fact that it's got that manual water valve, I really like it. It looks like a very good quality piece that may just need a new seal. After doing some research, I guess many of them were manual. Maybe it was only the International Land Yachts that had an automatic, but in that I have an automatic now it's kind of hard to go backwards. At any rate, I'm not making this decision until I gut the trailer and replace the floor which may or may not happen this winter.

Take a look at the Dometic 310 it has a porcelain bowl, that is why I chose it...and not too much$$$$ you can find them for around $100 +/-
