I am a larger person as well, but I always do the "deed" flush, ad some water then doo the paperwork. The extra water in the bowl helps to keep the paper away from you so clearance isn't a problem.

Now, just as any other engineer would, I am going to have to make some measurements!

Stay tuned...
We don't need any pictures on this one!

I think people that don't poop in their own camper are mental. I have never seen a camp ground toilet, at any campground, that I would want to poop in. Hahahaha. I don't even like using the toilet at work if I don't have too...Its just my opinion so don't go mental on me. Lol

This thread is too funny. Add me to the list of people that do "the Deed" in house. I call it my $23k porta potty on wheels. My wife would sometimes prefer if I "went for a walk" but I kinda like filing my paper work at the home office. Lol

"Dropping the kids off", "Filing the paperwork"... These euphemisms are just hysterical!

One of the key features of our camper was the front bathroom. Just 2 steps out of bed and I'm in. I can live with the "clearance" issues

Toilets are a pet peeve of mine. We replaced our new motor homes toilet right away after purchasing the motorhome. We had a Thetford Mark V, and went with a Thetford Residence. I also put it on a 2 1/2" riser so it is easier to get up from, and more comfortable. Also it has the hand held spray nozzle, which is a must have.

I'm curious, what did you not like about the Mark V?
