Toilet change

Putting build sheet together for a 5.0. Has anyone been able to get ETI to put in a toilet that has a standard house type seat?

I have never heard this request before. You would be best to just talk with your sales person to see if they would install an RV toilet you supply. Their sales staff is very helpful with letting you know what the can and will do, and will ask if it is a special request. Plus, they know better what they can or will do better than the bunch of us. Do let the forum know what you find out.

Is there a particular RV toilet you are interested in? I don't have much issue with the one installed, but am always keen to learn other folks thoughts.

Thetford came out with a new residential rv toilet with a residence type seat and high profile. 18” ADA height spec. Example: https://amzn.to/2WQPdgr
I am considering swapping out to this if mount lines up, which it probably will. I’d think if you called ETI and shipped in the toilet, they’d probably do it if it’s standard RV setup and clearances are OK.
First thing our friends do with a new RV is swap out to high profile unit with the elongated seat, makes a big difference.

An 18" seat height is the height of the comfort models in regular toilets becoming popular now. Given the raised height of where the Escape toilet mounts I would confirm this height will work. A couple short legged people I have installed them for found 18" too high for them, though most really like it.
