Thetford Launches Residential-Sized RV Toilet Called The Aqua Magic Residence

Thetford Aqua Magic Residence Commode RV Toilet 42169 Hi Profile White by Thetford

It’s always a pain (literally) using most RV toilets. I’ve been waiting for a lightweight, full-sized toilet for quite some time. Finally, Thetford has come out with a larger model for big and tall RVers to purchase.

The initial reviews on this thing look pretty good. I’m taller at 6’5″, and the size of normal toilets inside RV’s are tough to deal with.

If you need a taller toilet, the Aqua Magic Residence may be a great option for making it easier to get up and off the royal throne! Thetford makes the Aqua Magic Residence in a few profiles and colors. You can sort through the types at their website.

The high profile version has a 18″ ADA-compliant seat height, and gives you about 7″ more height from the floor to the top of the toilet seat than on the low-profile model – a lifesaver for us taller folks.

And when it comes time to change out your RV toilet, here’s a detailed walkthrough that will help you get the job done right, without any leaks.

The size of the toilet in an RV may seem like an insignificant issue to most people. But if you have a physical disability, a larger build, or stand well over 6′ in height, you know how important toilet size can be. A full-size RV toilet makes it a lot more fun to use the bathroom while you’re camping.

  1. I have had a hip replacement and need a tall toilet stool. Do you make a handicapped stool or a riser that will fit your regular stool,

  2. Bill,

    Thanks for your comments. Its good for people to see the different expirences folks have with aftermarket RV toilets. There is not nearly enough information available to make a easy decision.

  3. I recently purchased the residential toilet to replace a Sealand/Dometic Model 300. The Sealand was a poor performer when it came to flushing solid waste.

    The Thetford does a great job flushing, but has an annoying creaking noise due to the poor design of the seat. The seat is also not replaceable by a standard round residential seat, because it is much wider than all the available seats.

    In contacting Thetford customer service, they were aware of the problem but acted pretty indifferent to the problem. Saying that even though it was a new model it was an entry level model and could not be expected to provide the performance of a $1000 toilet. There suggestion was to buy a different seat locally.

    I have a Thetford toilet in another RV and have been happy with it.
