Marine toilet?

I've read that a lot of AS owners replace their factory plastic toilets with marine or porcelain toilets. Is there a particular reason why? Would it be worth replacing it on a new TT before it is used? What is the cost of switching it out?

We replaced our cracked, used, plastic thetford with a shiny new pocelain Sealand Traveler lite. The total cost was well under $200.00 including seals, new hardware and shipping.

Why? Well first, the old one was broken - but even if it had been functional we would have replaced it. It was scary to "perch" on - felt like sitting on a toddlers training potty. The seat was small - the new one has a nice oval household toilet style seat. Oh yeah and...it's easier to clean

My suggestion would be that if you like your new toilet and it works - keep it. Maybe the new ones are better than the old - I don't know. You can always replace later.

Thanks. I figured it was a matter of comfort. But I didn't know if there was a big difference in the height or stability or, well, just comfort in general. I think if I tackle the job myself it will be before it is ever used. There are just some things I'd rather not try.

Most toilets come in a couple of different heights.....

If you replace the toilet be sure to get one that takes a standard size seat - so you can replace it as you want... Our new porcelian toilet came with a cheap plastic (but light weight) seat - we replaced it with a more solid one asap!
