Thanks Alf,

Working through the build sheet is fraught with questions, I'm just the persistent type that probably drives Escape nuts with detailed questions. The only pic of the 21 bath on their website is hard to visually scale, but it looks like a longer bowl would fit. Mounting pattern is of course a different issue.

Should be no problem for a rocket scientist to simply extend the trailer by a few inches in the bath area.

Great idea for a 2-holer!

Been done, although by more than a few inches... see the FiberglassRV thread. Likely not worth it for toilet change, though!

I don't have our trailer at home to measure, but there is a lot of space between the standard toilet and the back wall in a 21.

Charlie-

The toilet in my Escape 21 is a Thetford model 31646. The distance from the rear of the toilet to the sloping back wall of the bathroom is approximately six inches. The distance from the sides of the toilet to the more-or-less vertical walls of the bathroom is seven inches.

I now officially know everything. :-/

I just replaced a plastic Aqua Magic V in a Casita with Dometic Sealand ceramic bowl toilet. It was fairly inexpensive (about $150) for a ceramic toilet. The tall round 17" toilet is a model 310 and the compact round 13" tall toilet is a model 311. It has a plastic seat but a household round wood seat fits.
I don't think it took up any more space and maybe less than the Aqua Magic V. The bolt pattern (2 ea. 6" OC) is the same and the closet flange size is the same. I did have to add about 2" of PEX to the water supply line.
Go on line and you can get the exact measurements of both toilets.

elongest, that Dometic is the model I was looking at installing, and Mike Lewis confirmed above that there is space available. Since Escape won't install it I'll probably wait until the OEM breaks, then use it as a flower planter..........

For those who do not wish to replace, but instead wants to improve their existing toilet, there is always this option http://www.amazon.com/OriGlam®-Energ...G19J73RK6299B5

"improve"? I do not think that word means what you think it means...
