One thing to consider - are you talking about a rear bath second toilet ? If like our's, it's a macerating toilet and does not drop directly into sewer tank and must be pumped to the tank...

No...its a regular gravity flush. It drops straight into the black tank.

Well I pulled the old Thetford out and man what a mess. It was not even the floor seal leaking...it was everything from the gate valve to the floor seal that was leaking. Whoever put it in tightened it so tight it warped the bottom sealing flange that sits on the seal. One lag bolt broke off. Seems like the floor has been a little rotten for quite some time. That's why the lag bolts were rusty along with everything else. The bottom of my bathroom floor is easy to get to by taking off a panel next to the LP tank. All the tanks and plumbing can be seen. So since the floor was spongy and would not hold a lag bolt someone screwed in a couple of pieces of wood scabbed where the screws would catch on some not rotted flooring and then the lag bolts holding the toilet to the floor were then lagged into the scabbed pieces of wood.

According to some youtube videos it appears the Dometic 320 bolts to the floor like a conventional house toilet with the T-bolts. Looking at the closet flange on my set up the flange is glued to the pipe. If I install the Dometic I am going to have to cut the drain pipe just so I can turn the closet flange then glue it back together with a PVC coupling.
I guess I could just lagged through the flange into the scabbed pieces....who knows. I'm just going to order the Dometic first and take a look at how it's mounted and go from there.

Update...Got the Dometic in. I have to re-tile a small portion under the Dometic as the base is smaller in diameter. Whoever installed the Aria before me just butchered the tile to get it in. I also had to cut the closet flange out and lower it to the floor so it can seal properly.

I found the Dometic to be a much better design other than the plastic base which I can easily live with. It's so much quieter and now the smell is gone without anymore leaks. Thanks to all who contributed.
