What brand toilet to buy?

I've looking around the $150-200 range

I see the Aqua magic V $130
Sealand lite $142
Thetford Bravura $150

The Bravura looks like the nicest outside design any thoughts?

Hello lipets, the sealand travler lite is the one we purchased .great quality
china bowl ,works great. I think any of the china bowl toilets are better than the plastic models for sure.

Buy one that fits the space. We also bought a sealand traveler lite but that's becasue it was the only one that would fit in the tight space. The pot has been great and it was money well spent. Sealand makes a larger model - if you have ample room.

By the way.... sealand is owned by Dometic and they have started branding them as Dometic toilets.

Sealand had always been a high end unit and is well regarded in the marine circles as well. Fit is important and it needs to fit comfortably in/on your compartment.

If you have the room, put in a Sealand 500 series. They sell for $200. They have a very nicely sized accomodation.

Here's a size comparison between the Sealand 511+ and my original 1959 model.

I ve replaced my genuine toilet on my 1971 overlander 27' this year, with the Aquamagic thedford . it's the high model and the Airstream cover don't fit well, above it; The fixing screws are not in the same places but you can moove them correctly. Finally it's a good replacement part.

I just replaced mine with a new Auqua Magic. Yes the holes probably won't match up on any of the newer ones. Our flange going into the tank was rusted bad and since the new one didn't fit anyway my father and I bought a new flang at lowes made a few adjustments and we now have a new toilet. I would be happy to help if you need more info.

Do replacement toilets come in both ROUND and OVAL seating like most home bathrooms do?

Check out the PPL website. They have spec sheets for most models avaialble online.

If possible - get a toilet that takes a standard household seat. Our Sealand came with a cheesey unstable seat and we swapped it out for coated wood one that we picked up at walmart. Made all the differenece in the world - but added a coulpe of pounds to the trailer. The cheesey one was thin plastic and really light.

We're getting a new toilet installed this weekend. I don't even know what brand, Darol picked it up for his GT project and said he'd stick it in mine if I wanted, since the GT is far from needing a toilet yet. I'll report back after he installs it.

My main concern was water leaks on my current one (which is not the original) and the height. He's installing a shorter toilet, which I think will work better with our above-the-floor black tank.

Got my new toilet

Well, I got my new toilet, and it's a HUGE improvement over the old one. This one is a Sealand short model, ceramic, pretty much looks about the same size as a regular houshold toilet, in fact I think the seat area is bigger than the one that was in there. Fit in with no problems, in fact Darol found a broken bolt and ill fitted gasket on the old one which had made it a little wobbly. This one is mounted solid, plus the bowl holds water, which I wouldn't be so excited about except it was always a surprise if the old one was going to be working or not

Looks great, Stephanie. Do you know if yours is a Sealand 500 series (Traveler) or 100 series (Traveler Lite)? I'm working towards a replacement right now too and have pretty much decided on Sealand low profile.

Sugarfoot ,the sealand travler lite is the one we have in our 60 trdwnd .
A great replacement , I think its the 110 model ,well its the short style .
looks like stefrobrts .I was able to use a standard home type cover .its
kind of a coral color to match the tub and sink .The cover does hit the vacuum breaker at the top rear some ,but easily corrected .just makes it
alot better than just the plain look .

Scott
