Is this a feasible option, or does the toilet have to sit directly over the existing hole? Thank you for any help you may be able to provide!!
A standard RV toilet really needs to sit directly over the tank, or you need a macerator pump to move the waste to the tank. A macerator is certainly an option for a setup like that if you want to preserve the tank system.
Other options ... If the trailer is at a fixed location and will never move again, and has water and sewer hookups, you could convert to a household flush toilet and hook up accordingly. Or you could use a composting toilet and do no plumbing at all.
