Author Topic: Which RV toilet has biggest seat under $250?  (Read 4032 times)

Which RV toilet has the biggest/most comfortable seat for under $250.  I have a Thetford Bravura now which isn't too bad, but it got beat up pretty bad by being in the bus during demo and construction.

The ultimate toilet for me would be the Thetford Aria with a seat the size of a household elongated seat, but the Aria at close to $500 is just too much money.

The ones I've been researching are the Sealand 500 Plus and the various Thetford Style toilets.  I would get another Bravura (or keep the current one for now) if it has the best seat.  Camping World has the Sealand 500 Plus on sale right now.

I had a Sealand Traveler now I have a Aqua magic style plus. The Aqua is a much more comfortable toilet. Even the china bowl is eaiser to clean!!! I know 2 other people that have them and are happy.

This is being offered, "tongue-in-cheek".  How about the one that fits your butt? Undecided

There are very nice padded seats available at most retail stores which will make your 'extended reading periods' quite comfortable.  No reason to think that one would have to think in terms of the Manufacturers best offering of a hard, plastic picture frame (a little Redneck humor there). Cheesy

FWIW.....

Not to hijack, but what's a decent toilet that takes regular seats (they fit my butt just fine  Wink ), works well, and is reasonably priced?

I'm looking at comfort in terms of the longest seat from front to back.  I don't care if the seat itself is hard plastic.

It sounds like the Thetford Style Plus will probably fit the bill as I can't see spending even $325 for an Aria.

I have the Aria and I am very happy with it, it keeps itself pretty clean.  Haven't had to use Pam on it yet.  Thrifty with the water too.  Keep looking on ebay per Deb and Dav.  And yest, its very comfortable too. I'm not big on the plastic ones either.

Ok, like I posted in another thread, I haven't had the pleasure of using an RV "throne" yet, but is there that much of an issue??? Just curious.

  I still fit 29" waist jeans. I gotta be careful I don't fall in!

Belfert,
I just replaced the cheap plastic Sea Land I had with an Aqua Magic Style Plus. I have to say that I am impressed, it works great and the china bowl is a vast improvement.
I needed it quickly and just walked in a little RV store and paid 277.00 off the floor. I am sure that you can get a better price by shopping around. Size wise its much larger than the old one, and I would say just slightly smaller than a household unit. Well worth the extra money over the cheap plastic ones.

 I had to put some thought into this befor posting,I dont want to offend anyone, but what the heck. The worst that happens I get banned!!
 The size of the seat front to rear and side to side is not the issue. It is the depth of the bowl from waterline to family jewels. Huh With the Sealand china bowl I had to be careful or Mr Happy would go for a dip  Shocked With the style plus, I can relax as this is not a problem Cheesy
 I understand that this is more of a problem for gentlemen with 35 foot buses Grin  There did I offend anyone?

See Kyle, it's not just me,  I have the sealand china bowl too.  Brian, As stated on Chaz's thread, i push the pedal down when the train exits one tunnel so it goes strait to the next tunnel and doesn't lift me off the seat.
