Upgrading toilet

Have plastic toilet now that the wife and myself hate, what's the best standard height ceramic toilet to get? Or is there a better toilet than that? I am assuming its pretty straight forward changing it out, changed out several in my houses over the years.

Thanks

Before you get too carried away, find out just exactly which toilet system you currently have.. could be a straight gravity dump, or a vacuum assist or something else..Then shop accordingly..

It has a ball valve, when push the foot valve it open and it sprays water and gravity dumps. Has a single water line going in at the bottom. I would assume that would make it a gravity toilet?

That would be my guess as well.
Best thing to do is get the serial # and the mfg model # then search that mfg to see if there is a "drop in" replacement .
Reason being that unlike a residential sewer system , In RV's there are a plethora of manufacturers and each have their own idiosyncrasies, mounting methods and plumbing designs (and bolt patterns.)

Miny.... itís really not that complicated. There are several lines of cheap plastic toilets available, but this is what youíre moving away from.
In the reasonable high end class there are really just two big playersó- Dometic and Thetford. I recently installed a Dometic 320 in my motorhome, and we like it very much. It is an RV toilet built with the features of a residential unit. 18 inches high, elongated shape, ceramic bowl, and solid wood seat. We recommend it.

We looked at the 310 & 320. We liked the 310 better and ordered it with wood, soft close seat. Installed late fall and very pleased with it. Canít remember the model we threw away.

Just installed the same removing a older Dometic. The only problem was that the water inlet is on the other side. I got some new "hose" and replaced the end. Easy install and is a little higher. Another feature is that one can change out the seal from above without removing and disassembling the unit.

Swapped out a couple. The Dometic 320 is the top of the line and comes in 2 different heights. On most it's 2 bolts, one water line, a new seal and done. Not even a half day job. I would highly recommend the sprayer well worth the extra money and in the end saves water.

Here's the thread on my swap with a riser under the flange.

Has Anyone Replaced the Toilet or Flange in a Vectra
