You won't be sorry with your upgrade. After you've jimmy-rigged the slots in the flange for the 3rd and 4th bolts, make sure you set the toilet in position and turn it to the desirable angle. Assuming the retainer screws aren't installed, the flange should turn easily with the toilet. Then, carefully remove the toilet and set the 8 retainer screws. You'll probably need to drill new holes for these screws. Good luck. - Roy

Thumbs up

You'll be talking to Ken, the owner. Tell him I sent you. (Like that will do any good!) He seems like a really good guy, and he's got much better prices than most of the RV places around.

I had to run when I picked up my toilet, but I'll be back to spend some money there.....

FWIW - parts are still available - I just bought a complete new mechanism for mine - the reason I fixed mine is because to me it was the easiest thing to do - just take it out, put it back together and I'm done. Lots of lysol when I bought it though

In the photo, each "dark spot" around the flange is a slot for a stud.

Rubber gloves make the install much more sanitary too!

That picture just cleared up a lot of my confusion. Out sealand was installed wrong. We had NO screw on to the tank tlange at all and the bolts for the tolet were into the wood decking. the outer flange with the bolts was not there. It was sealed with wax ring.

Guess where some of the worst floor issues were?

I did find the tank screw on peice at West marine. I just need to find the outer ring now.

We're putting in a Sealand Treveler in our '73 and had the same flange issues. We called Sealand and discovered that there is an adapter available for these. I haven't yet installed it , but it is supposed to prevent you from having to muddle around with our existing flange and possibly causing a leak (when full of course).

Hope this helps.

For what it's worth, I replaced the orignal Thetford in my A/S with the new Bravura last year. If you have the room for it, it is an easy exchange. The whole job took less than an hour. The Bravura does stick out to the rear a bit more than the older one did, but I had four or five inches behind the old one to start with.

I went ahead and added the optional riser as well. I'm 6'4". so the extra two inches of height is nice. It makes for a nice finshed look around the base.

Sealand weight

Does anyone know the weight difference between the Sealand low profile toilet and the plastic Bravura or Aqua Magic? The porcelain must weigh substantially more than plastic.
I am concerned with weight because of the rear bath comfiguration in my 1971 Tradewind.
If it is 20lbs or more, then I would worry, or should I ignore the weight issue altogether?
I want to buy a new toilet this week, any help woould be appreciated.

I tried to find a shipping weight for the Bravura, but Thetford doesn't list a weight - neither did Camper's Choice or Camping World.

It wasn't heavy - it's all plastic. I'm guessing maybe 20 pounds.

I just weighed the Bravura. 18 Lbs. I have a brand new parchment high profile one that I bought for my 94 but sold the Airstream before I installed it. It's still in the box with a new flange seal. If anybody wants it I'll sell it for $130 and I'll pay for the shipping.

The Sealand Travelite is suprisingly light, nothing like a home unit. I'm guessing it weighed maybe around 5-8 lbs more than the Thetford it replaced (25 lbs total?).

Just got the Sealand and haven't removed the Aqua Magic - bolts to floor. Those tips on how you did it could come in handy! (I have 78 Argosy mid bath - should be same type floor.
