Best Seat Upgrade for Thetford Aqua Magic Style?
Just upgraded my OEM plastic Thetford toilet to a nicer porcelain bowl model (Thetford Aqua Magic Style II) and now trying to find a better seat/lid combo than the original cheap plastic it came with. Ideally, I'd like to find a nice painted wood (or at least SOLID plastic) slow-close model if available. Biggest problem I'm finding is locating something in the correct color, as I elected to go with the original "bone" color of the original unit.
I checked around at Home Depot and saw quite a few that might work, but they were only available in white. Only found two in the matching bone color I need, but neither were ideal replacements. Test-fitted them with the following results:
Bemis Richfield - Round Enameled Wood (OK, only $20, but not slow-close & nonadjustable hinge design forces it to sit a little too far forward than desired)
Bemis Affinity - Round Plastic (OK, priced at $38 for slow-close feature, plus adjustable hinge design allows better fore-and-aft centering, but overall shape doesn't conform to bowl as well as I'd like)
Wondering if anyone else has had better luck finding a seat/lid combo in BONE color for the Aqua Magic Style II? If so, please share make & model if you would be so kind. THANKS!
PS - I know many are likely to suggest just switching to the Dometic 320 which comes with a slow close sea/lid already, but space limitations don't allow for the footprint & different water hookups that would require. Besides, the Thetford line has served me well so far and the new one is already in place - so a NICER and easier to clean seat/lid combo is what I need at this point. Anxious to hear if others have already solved this dilemma?
Life is hard... but it's even harder if you're stupid!
