If you can get the Elegance readily then go for it. One of the best there is I believe. Having said that, they are not readily available in Australia and the alternative that people say is basically trouble free as well is Tecma. IMO absolutely don't put cassette units or composting types in.
Tecma (which I believe is now a Thetford Company) is an excellent head too and uses similar technology to Marine Elegance. If I remember correctly, Tecma actually pioneered the technology 25 years ago and Raritan followed suit.
