RV toilet porcelain base

Dose anyone make one all the one I have seen are plastic and I feel they are wobbly or not as sturdy. I am a big guy and would prefer one that is more secure.

Have searched the web but not found one.

A fully China unit would make mounting the flush valve tricky. Ive never seen one.
However.......
Dometic 320 is a full (residential) sized toilet with a china bowl and a very robust plastic base. Elongated bowl, 18 height, easy install. I installed one in our DS about five years ago, no wobbles, no tilting, no difficulties at all.

I tend to second that about the Dometic 320, even though it has a plastic base with china bowel, it feels as stable at my home all china toilet.

Dometic makes this model (below) and a model called the Masterflush which has a built in macerator. The Masterflush is more like a home toilet with an electronic flush control that mounts on the wall.

Even if your toilet drains directly over the tank, the macerator unit would forever keep you from having poo pyramids or clogging issues. They do use more water, but drain like grey tank liquid. Very pricey though.

Yes but most of those do not have a China base they are China on poly.

Took a bit of reading to see the aria was all China

I do have an Aria toilet, yes it is a full china base/bowl.

Mine has electronic push button control with a circuit board that opens/closes the gate type valve.

When it works it is great, when it doesn't work it isn't fun as the only way to open the gate valve is to reach behind/under the back of the toilet and turn a small knob open and then closed. You have to be a contortionist to do this. The toilet failed on my wife in the middle of a trip, she was not a happy camper.


I've had to take mine apart several time. Once to replace the circuit board and other to lubricate/clean everything. Not a difficult job but messy.

If I can keep mine working I'll use it but if I have to replace will be with something more reliable.

I've owned both Dometic and Thetford.

The Dometics much easier to maintain. The most common replacement part is the ball valve seal. Rubber glove on remove old seal and press in new seal 1 minute tops. The Thetford you need to separate the china bowl from the plastic base which may or may not require removing the toilet. Minimum time 1 hour. Your time your choice.

Toilet

Our 2004 Beaver has a factory installed Headhunter RV Toilet (Google it). It has a "water sump" (no balls or blades) and works with water/air pressure making a macerator . Used in big boats and Prevost's which should tell you something about the $$$
