A tempting opening....


Some trailers had a small compartment directly above the throne with a door, hinged at the bottom. The door on ours looks a lot like the wall or like it might just be a plate covering plumbing. Many folks have cut into this section to install a new toilet.

A look into my secret compartment.
Q-Tips, a 12 volt curling iron (my wifes) and Ken's - I mean my Ghost Ranch cup.

I see. Mine has a wet bath and the compartment behind the toilet has a very conspicuous lid on top of it.

Ok... it'ls looking like I might need to take a risk and try the Style II and report back. Worse case, I'll cast it off to another forum member and I'll try the Sealand.

Thanks to all for the help and opinions.

Richard... if you still want the rubber feet for the "lid"... PM me.

Cool.

I'm thinking I'll report back on the Style-II. No downside from my standpoint.

Thanks for all the feedback... otherwise I'd be wondering around in the dark. Not pretty.

Terry,

Can you tell me more about this? I was about to order a new Sealand and was doing a last minute check when I saw your comment.

I'm having a new black tank installed, and replacing the missing toilet. What will I have to to do the flange to bring it up to date?

Ron............and the rest of the story? Did you get the Thetford style. How did it work? Was at an RV place yesterday and was mentioning that I was going to get a Sealand Traveler Lite and he showed me the Thetford Style II the dimensions are very close to the Sealand.

I have a 1979, 31'. I need to remove the toilet for some floor work. There are no obvious bolts. Anyone know how to get it out?
