Time to buy a new toilet.....

.....and I do not want to break the bank. However I am also a firm believer in doing something once correctly and not having to do it again at a later date. So my question: any specific brands or styles that are better than others? Has anyone had better luck with one type vs. another?

Hi Jarod,

I installed one of these late last summer. Used it on a couple of trips before winterizing. I like it and it is one of the very few things my wife actually thanked me for upgrading!

The Thedford Aqua V works fine for us.

I'm in the process of upgrading to a Sealand Traveler Lite which is supposed to have a china bowl (easier to keep clean) and a more reliable waste valve. They're around $200.

I put in a Sealand and like it

It's a China ( porcelan ? ) Any way it doesn't scratch if you scrub it. The scratches will collect " stuff " and grow all kind of nastys. However, the seat and cover are plastic. Sooner or later, I will get a better seat at HD.
I picked Sealand because they offer a model that was low to the ground. I needed a short model because the toilet is sitting on top of the black tank, so a normal height toilet would end up toilet too high off of the floor.

Our first trailer had a PO installed china bowl. It worked nicely and cleaned easy. I had never had any other so all was good. Our current unit has an original plastic model. It works fine and winterized OK this past year. I just don't like it as well and when needed I will replace with a china model.

That's my story and I'm stickin to it.

I think our '99 has a Thetford Bravura low profile foot flush, which has a china bowl but other parts are plastic and it has worked well for us for a couple of years.

We are getting ready to buy one for our Bubble, and was wondering if anyone could compare the Thetford Bravura to the Thetford Aqua Magic V?
