Ceramic or plastic toilet

I have a 2016 Greyhawk 31FS on order. I was surprised to learn that the toilet is plastic? Isn't Greyhawk supposed to be the "upgraded" version of RedHawk? All of the Jayco TT and FW appear to have ceramic toilets. Is this something I should change out myself? Has anyone done a toilet upgrade and shared their story? Does it really matter?

Our TT came with plastic, and I upgraded to a residential height ceramic. The 5er came with ceramic.

Robkelly, Was it an easy install or complicated?

Very easy - the fresh water connection and two bolts on the flange. Hardest part of the installation is getting the new toilet positioned properly over the hole.

Before you buy a new toilet be sure you have the necessary clearance for it to fit. Was going to put a residential height in the 5er, but there isn't enough clearance for it to fit.

Don't forget to install a shutoff valve when you do the change over. You'll thank yourself in the future for doing it. By the way, my plastic toilet is 6 years old now and never a problem with it.

Tunce, would you mind taking a newbie "under your wing" and explain why the shutoff valve is necessary?

If you ever have a water leak or need to change the seal ( has happened to many) by having that shutoff valve you won't disrupt the rest of the household. Could be a late afternoon leak and no one is open or it might take a day or two for parts. 1/4 turn and your done and life goes on.
