The RV toilet should be performing based my high standards so as to accommodate my family in times of toilet trouble!

You should pick an RV toilet that will suit your needs in your travel. Choose, of course, an RV toilet that is within your budget. If you spend more than what you can afford, then that RV would not go anywhere but be parked forever in your garage because you need to pay for the toilet first. You also need to decide if you need a fixed toilet or a portable one. How would you decide on this? Easy. If your family likes to travel and go to places without ever have to camp, then choose a fixed RV toilet. You do not need a portable toilet. But if your family is the one who likes to go on camping, I recommend choosing the portable toilet. Of course, a portable toilet is easy to replace in case you need a new one. But with the technology nowadays, a fixed toilet and a portable toilet may just have the same quality and durability.
