It just doesn't fit!

WHAT THE HECK ANYWAY?
Why is the toilet on our R.V.s in a space designed for a person who is pencil thin and and extra long legs? Oh, and who can fit EVERYTHING on it's seat?
I don't know about you but I would have sacrificed ANYTHING around the bathroom for a regular sized toilet! I'm not a large man by no means, and CAN NOT imagine my fellow R.Vers who are bigger than I. But once I SAFELY get all my junk STUFFED inside the plastic circle, I have to lean forward to UN=CLINCH the pressure just to pee! AND,, NO I DON'T SIT TO PEE!
And if i might ask,,,is your roll of paper IN THE MOST UN-GODFUL location on the wall, NEXT TO YOUR KNEE, that is clinched together by the cabinet and the wall? Oh, and is your CUTE LITTLE COMMODE on a pedestal SO YOUR FREAKING FEET DANGLE LIKE WHEN WE WERE 3 YEARS OLD!

I must admit that being a - ahem - man of size, the toilet fit test is the first test I do. The second test is the shower fit test. Everything else inside is my wife's concern.

+1 aggiedad. I test everything before purchasing. Of course I mean a dry run type of test.

We had warned a friend , first time buyer, to sit every where , well she did , unfortunately she for got to try closing the door while sitting.

They only kept that RV 3 months.

I wish we HAD tested the toilet before we bought. Then we wouldn't be stuck with the fabulous "VacuFlush."

Come on sarah! The vacu flush is not that bad, ours has worked perfectly, I actually like it and no the sound doesn't bother me. I will gladly take the vacu flush for the ability to have two bathrooms. If I remember right, the only problem you had was when you were in a high elevation area. I think a few of the stories scare folks into worrying about it all the time. relllllaaaaaaxxxx and embrace the flush.

True story, a guy I worked with bought a new fifth wheel and his wife was not with him when he bought it.
She couldn't fit through the bathroom door so he traded it back in for a different one at a substantial loss.
The old saying goes if Momma's not happy.

These little gems were designed by a woman. She had them set on a pedestal so the man of the house could accurately hit the center of the toilet while standing. The stream doesn't gain enough energy to splash back making clean up behind him easier. If you put a small amount of water back into the bowl after flushing it will also cut down on splash back.
The dangling feet makes the user uncomfortable enough so he doesn't sit there and day dream for hours on end. Do your duty and get the heck off before your legs go to sleep. S... and git.

I'm tall so I touch and my magazine rack is right next to the throne so I'm in there for a while. That's why we have a bath and a half! Oh yea, I NEVER miss!
