Hello 6ra3-ga:

*Some* of the following suppliers/manufacturers don?t specify that
their products are applicable for motor homes, but I found them via
bus/RV/custom coach resources, such as ?Bus Related Bookmarks?:    
so they seemed applicable.  

However, most of the fixtures and generators listed here are
specifically designed for motor homes.

You may find additional resources by repeating my search strings, or
tweaking them. I found that ?RV? ? which seems to be displacing ?motor
home? as *the* generic term for this vehicle category ? was the
keyword that brought up the most, and the most pertinent, hits.

In contrast, search strings like "entertainer [or celebrity] AND 'tour
bus' AND suppliers" brought up companies that rent -- or custom design
and sell -- motor homes, but not suppliers of motor home fixtures.

Hello again:

My dear friend and colleague, Bobbie7-ga, very generously supplied me
with this additional information, which should be of help to you.

Walker Coach:

"Walker Coach carries all generator sizes from 5 kW portables for
under $500 up to 500 kW diesel industrial size units. Of course, most
bus conversions use 8 to 12 kW diesel generators":

At this page:
Scroll down to "Toilets" category:
"This is a subject not talked about in a great deal. The RV industry
has come a long way from the small cold plastic toilet to the new
modern full sized china toilet. The biggest difference is that these
toilets are extremely efficient with flush water. There are several
companies now making these fine china toilets, such as Jabsco,
Microphor, and Sealand":


Bobbie also recommended Flojet and Jabsco toilets. However, both seem
to be having all kinds of trouble with their Web sites. Try contacting
both companies directly to request catalogs:

I again thank Bobbie7-ga for her invaluable assistance. 

Btw, you may also want to check out Honda generators:
Their "Quiet Generators" -- category at top left -- are designed
specifically for RVs.

I hope this additional information is of help to you.

Hello Nancy,

Thank you so much along with Bobbie.. I'll just need a day or two to
review the information and get back to you, but from the looks of it,
it's all fine and dandy! :-)
