Thetford Toilet removal, 1994 Sovereign 21'

Recently purchased Sovereign 94, 21' with at Thetford , Aqua-Majic.
I need to take it out and put in a New Thetford.
I see NO bolts to remove. Sides are Flush all the way down to the carpet, no indents. Toilet is sitting on top of a box with carpet / factory. Do I twist it? Just rip it up?

The new one shows 2 bolt holes in the standard position for a Toilet.

I hope someone has removed one like this.

One bolt should be accessible from the back, an arm breaker. You should see a 1 in. plastic plug along the front under the seat for the second bolt. You will need an socket extension to get that one.

The newer toilets are a bit easier. If you have a rug on the bathroom floor it will be impossible to mount the front access cover unless you cut some off the bottom of it. No big deal no one gets down there to look anyway.

The rear bolt on the left hand side when looking from the front is accessible from the rear. Not easy. As mentioned under the seat there is a plug that can be removed. In my case it would have taken about a 16 inch socket extension to reach the nut. I groped for is from the rear.
The other bolt is accessible by depressing the flush pedal and reaching through the gap.
I wish those that design these things had to install or remove one.
