Unhappy Toilet to Close to Cabinet

We just purchased a 2016 27FB. Realized on the first trip out that the toilet is so close to the rounded sink cabinet that I have turn to sit on the pot.

Does anyone know if the toilet can be turned a few degrees toward the door to add a little clearance?

Thanks in advance.

Yes, the toilet can be turned. You will have to remove the toilet and turn the flange to where you want it. Not hard to do.

Hi there. Here is a picture of the flange from a our prior coach (2011 Flying Cloud), which is probably similar to your flange. Like you, I wanted to rotate the toilet (in our case, we wanted to straighten it as it pointed too far toward the door). I removed the 8 pictured Phillips head screws, and was then unable to make the flange rotate at all, even with substantial rotational force, and gave up. I hope you have better luck (and more ingenuity) then I did.
Best,
Joe

Is the flange welded or glued in place to the tank?

In older Airstreams (mine is a 77) it is threaded in. sometimes hard to get started but in mine there are two slots in the flange that will accept crossed large screwdrivers to rotate it. I imagine there is a special tool plumbers have that fits the two slots/notches

I rotated my flange to adjust my toilet too. It was threaded on my '98. From advice on this forum I made a tool with about 2' of 2x4 and two bolts screwed into it spaced to fit the flange slots.
