Just be careful not to screw anything through the floor and into the tanks. Someone on here did that a few years ago.

Is the sewer line really as close to ground as it appears? Was not going to do the lift option on my 2017 17b but do go on some rough roads.

You're not going to like these, but antonyms for "classic" include; atypical, unusual, different, abnormal irregular, uncharacteristic. You might want to just go old school with "2016, new and improved," go techy with "2016, v2" or automotive mid-year with "2016 1/2". Just saying....

I thought the same thing so went ahead and ordered the High lift option. I can straddle objects in the road too if I am forced too.

I'm getting the permanent rear bed in my 17B. Sarah said they could do it one of two ways - leave it basically as is, but substitute a mattress for the cushions, (no extra charge), or finish it like the bed in the 19.

While I like the more finished look, I would also like more separation of the space, as I'm think g of carrying my firewood in the "exterior" space on the passenger side. I really am intrigued by the drawer idea, though... Nothing worse than crawling to the back to dig something out from the back!

Like "contemporary", which means either "in the current style" or "in the style of the 1950's", depending on context.

Auto enthusiasts usually categorize the succession of vehicles with the same model name as numbered generations. Following that logic, we would be seeing the transition from "first generation" to "second generation" Escapes.

Unless your wood has been sterilized, you may be asking for a host of uninvited guests that crawl out of firewood once it gets warmer, ants, spiders,grubs just to name a few, I'd keep all of them outside.
