Dometic 320 Toilet - Will it Fit All Montanas?

So I am plumbing challenged, so before I take the advice offered here about replacing my Thetford Toilet with a Dometic 320, I wanted to ask this question after reading reviews on Amazon. Sounds like the advice here is to replace your Thetford before you regret it?

1. I have a 2018 3721RL and wanted to find out if this toilet will fit? Our toilet is located against a curved back wall.

2. Can a plumbing impaired guy like me install it? In other words, can, say a 8th grader install it?

Thanks in advance!

Yes. You will need to take some measurements. On our 2010, had to adjust a closet door in the bathroom so it would open and close. Easy install. YouTube videos available.

I just replaced mine and you need 11" from the center of the floor flange to the wall for the 320. It was easy to do the only issue is i changed the fresh water hook because the placement was different. But easy to do.

My back wall is curved as well and the only thing I had to do was figure out how I wanted to handle the difference in water inlet as noted above. I made a pex based adapter to handle the issue, but flexible braided hoses exist to do it as well.

In our 2010 we had to cut a closet door and had to use the smaller bowl one, I believe it's 310 in order to get the door to close. So be sure and measure.

Just curious, but I have a 3000RK 2010 Montana. Has anyone put the Dometic 320 in their rig. Measured the distance from bolts to wall and I think it was about 10 1/2 inches. Everyone says you need 11 to 12" to fit so it doesn't hit wall I guess. Have had the Thetford since 2010 and no leaks yet, but wonder if I am just lucky and it will cause major problem in near future.

Search the net for an installation manual for the 320. I did it this spring and the manual has ALL the dimensions you need - width, depth, etc - with pictures/diagrams.
Others have mentioned rotating the flange in the floor a little to gain clearance for doors, etcs.
If you are using PEX piping, be sure to use shark bite connectors. Everyone including me raves about them. SOooo easy to use. I even spent the extra $3 or so for the removal tool!!! Never know when you may want to change things later on.
