Just took delivery of a 166. We didn't sit on the toilet before purchase and were concerned about the flex in the toilet and the floor. Anyone else have any concerns or insight?

It's plastic, and saves weight. It will creak and move a bit. That's expected and normal.

I am with Mikes.  They move a little and are not built for using in a rough manner.  However, we have not had any trouble with ours.

Just what kind of activity do you think I have planned?

Wife and I noticed this before we bought ours. I called the factory and got a hold of a guy there who said they've sold over a thousand of these and have not had any complaints. He told me the whole unit is built as one unit with the shower and the toilet and a black tank all-in-one and they just set it in the camper ready to go. So having not had any complaints or warranty issues I guess they're good to go. Can't you just see these guys trying out the toilets in the factory to see how much wiggle and flex they have. They told me that they thought they were okay. They said they didn't make a practice of sitting on the toilet before they sell them. But it was interesting topic anyway.

Dometic makes a lightweight china toilet which is an easy install to replace the plastic one. The china toilet is not only more substantial it cleans easier and does not hold onto odors.

Oh where does ones mind wander.  Rough on the toilet  usually means flopping down hard and maybe rocking the unit while reading etc.  Not sure where the poster's mind was traveling.  lol

We had students from China staying  with us for several years. In the beginning I was replacing toilet seats. The plastic bolts which held them on would break. I bought the best seat with the strongest bolts I could find and still had them break. This indeed was a mystery until one day while scratching my head I remembered that while in China we did not sit on a toilet. Actually the western bathroom throne is is only used by a few of us "throne" countries, the majority of the world find it dirty to sit on a seat. My wife gently explained to the young lady that we do not put our feet on the seat so to speak. Our broken throne seat problems were over.
