Thanks for the info, I guess I'll be installing one this spring as well. Anybody out the have some modification to compensate for the small Bimini on the wake tower? When the sun is out it can really get hot.

This is what I came up with last year.
I bought it at Sams but their out of stock now. I fount a similar one on Amazon, http://a.co/aAojHVF I used tarp clamps and 1" nylon webbing with fastek fasteners to secure it to the tower and the bow ladder. It goes on in about a minute. Keeps the SeaDek up front much cooler.
Found this one on WalMart.com. https://www.walmart.com/ip/Coolaroo...Sail-11-10-Natural-Colors/16775579#about-item Coolaroo is a very good company. I have 4 shades that keep sunlight off my outdoor bar for 5 years and they are still in good shape.

I ordered two parts

Dometic 301097206 Portable Toilet 2.6 Gallon and the Dometic 385320005 970 Series Hold-Down Bracket off amazon. Fit like it was designed to go in there
Can you remove the toilet to empty it with the hold down brackets installed?

My storage compartment is smaller than yours and really isn't built for a MSD, but since my crew is all women I was required to buy one. I purchased the following at West Marine and the crafted a shade that goes over the windowshield in the aisle way and down so I can just pull it out sit it on the floor right there, throw the shade/curtain and they can use it in total privacy. Nice thing is, if we are going out on a lake where there are restrooms, I can leave it at home and use the space for something else. Or I can just keep it in the back of the SUV for shore service. I also can just throw it in the back of the SUV when we go on country road trips, in case of emergency.

Works fantastic, never spills, holds 250+ lbs and rinses out easily.

I have the Thetford Model 135, $99.00 at Cabbela's, Fits perfect. They also make a model 365 which has twice the size of water tank, which also makes it taller.

I am 5 Ft 8" and with the 135, I can sit on it, and not hit my head on the ceiling, (barely) anything taller and I would definitely hit. Somehing to consider.

The space is not easy to get in and out of anybody 6.0" or taller will be bent over like a pretzel in there.
