We changed our plastic throne for a porcelain with a removable lid and seat. The plastic was too low to the floor and was really not hygienic due to the inherent properties of plastic itself - porosity prevents proper cleaning in plastic.

Another reason we changed to porcelain was to add a seat bidet [washing machine for your tailpipe]. The 310 Dometic porcelain toilet is hygienic and much more comfortable in height and size.

However, it is NOT plug and play where the incoming lines are concerned. Jayco uses PEX and that is not an easily moved line from the OEM toilet location to the 310. It must be cut and elbows placed with PEX crimp rings. I found shark bites leaked...

Good luck.

I’d go with porcelain. Easier to clean. My two cents!

have to agree - have 27U MH and just changed my plastic out for porcelain 310 - has been great upgrade - but did have to modify the lines as the old Thetford (I think) line came in high in the back and new Dometic 310 is low on the back - so took couple trips to Home Depot to get correct parts.

But is still worth it for cleaning and comfort.

Can anyone recommend a brand and model on a porcelain toilet reasonably priced for a decent one. Dont need a lighted bowl or automatic folding seat for my wife. I've been trained well over the years.

Our attitude toyhauler had a porcelain toilet it was great but the new jayco has plastic but we are going to change it to porcelain so we can hook a bidet to it. You cant use a bidet with the one piece plastic toilets

Another vote for porcelain. My last two Jay Flights came with the porcelain, much easier to clean, and just feel more stable compared to my previous trailers with plastic.

Our Jayco came with a porcelain toilet and we think it’s a good upgrade. We did take the cheap feeling plastic toilet seat off and replaced it with a good, heavier one that closes slowly—no “slamming” down! We have those at home and it was a great, and inexpensive addition to our camper!

Now that we are on the subject, what is a safe cleaner for a plastic toilet. One which will sanitize the bowl, not yellow the plastic, and not affect the biology of the black tank. I have been using a solution of water, lemon juice, vinegar and a drop of Dawn in a spray bottle.

Not really sure this is killing the nastiness but it hasn’t made anything turn yellow.

Suggestions?

I reckon plastic, because it’s lighter and a lot more flexible, therefore when your camper is going down the road and flexing as it goes over bumps etc. There’s no chance of it breaking.
That’s only my thoughts though, maybe no one’s ever had that happen to a porcelain toilet?

The main reason is it's less expensive.

We bought a Unique toilet cleaner for our RV because the toilet cleaner seems to use more natural ingredients and kept things fresh. So far I haven't noticed any discoloring or damage. It leaves the bowl clean, and the seal obviously lubricated. I think this will help the longevity of the toilet in my new RV, an investment worth preserving.
