Yup, almost every Keystone fifth wheel and travel trailer model in the "select" and up (and some of the "standard" models as well) have porcelain toilet bowls. If you consider that a plastic toilet is about 60% of the cost of a porcelain toilet and weighs about half as much, when you "design, engineer and weight balance" a trailer, if "light weight, cost and profits are a consideration, the cheaper models and the lighter models will have light weight components. That means plastic toilets and plastic sinks. It's extremely difficult to build a 33'3" travel trailer that weighs 5500 pounds without cutting out the weight of porcelain. That's just a part of the "cost of weight reduction"...

Our 2011 Springdale 242 fifth wheel had a porcelain toilet, but it wasn't considered an "ultralight" model.

Watch out for the plastic sinks bowls also, the oil from those plugin air freshners can melt the plastic if it gets on it, happend to me.. I hear those rubber worms for fishing do a number also!!

Wow, CrazyCain has birds in his camper that eat plastic worms and drop the remains in his plastic sink. At least, that's how I interpreted this.
