Forester 3051 question

We just purchased a 3051! Very exciting! We will pick up in about 2 weeks. When we were looking at the one we were going to purchase, it had a composite toilet. All of the other Foresters we had looked at had porcelain. I brought it up to the salesman and he agreed. He did agree to replace it. I called Forest River today and they said they have started on the late 2016 models replacing the porcelain with composite for "weight reasons". I was alittle bit nervous about having them replace it. Figured I was just asking for trouble and leaks. What would you prefer? The composite is Thetford and the porcelain is Dometic. The dealership has agreed to replace it with porcelain. Should I let them or leave it be? What would you do?

Replace it! You don't want a plastic toilet in your $110,000 RV.

Don't even think otherwise.

That is very disappointing. We are awaiting delivery of our 3051, too. We don't want a plastic toilet.

We are buying a new 3051S and just checked with our dealer and they said that it came with a plastic toilet. Since the on-line Forester brochure at the time we placed our order showed that a porcelain toilet was standard, we expected to get one. Our dealer, RV WHOLESALERS, jumped right on it, called the factory and are getting a porcelain toilet delivered to them tomorrow for installation in our motorhome. Now that's what I call excellent customer service from our dealer !!

Creative might have!

and yes, get the porcelain, not only sturdier but a bit taller too if I recall correctly.

No, I didn't pay anything near list. But that's what I tell people it lists for. I paid under $80k.
