Uses a lot of water, but in my research I have seen a couple. Not ideal for boondocking

its been done, but like the other say, why?

a low flow flush toilet is 1.6 gallons / flush

a fancy rv electronic toilet is .8 gpf with a flush cycle.

the foot pedal toilets are even less.

water and waste tank size have to be twice or 4 times bigger with a home toilet than a rv model for the same number of days of use.

some of the RV toilets are quite nice, porcelain, macerating, even with bidets

For me it the height of the toilet. My wife I am not so much concern with as long as it not a bucket with a seat. 😜

If you are planning on full hook-ups all the time and have a decent sized black water tank, it will work. You will just have to empty it more often.
Maybe adopt "if it's yellow let it mellow, if it's brown flush it down" edict. 😂
I have seen some taller RV toilets too. They are a bit more expensive, but they are out there.

if you go residential, be sure to get a pressure-tank flush type toilet or as you drive you will continuously have the float go up and down, losing a bunch of water into the drain tube. a pressure flush tank type toilet shouldnt have this issue...
