Second that. Don't carry firewood inside the trailer unless you want the risk of bugs.

There is a huge sign on the border of BC and Alberta forbidding transporting of firewood.

There are huge signs everywhere these days about transporting firewood across state lines or into parks.

With some of the creatures in firewood I definitely would not put it in the trainer and sleep with them and would leave them outside.

Now back to the 2017's. Lets see more pictures.

I like this! Updated my info on the left to reflect this.

This will likely raise the hackles of current owners, but with all the improvements being made to the 2017 models, perhaps all pre-2017 models should simply be referred to as "Beta test" models making the 2017's the true Gen1's.

dirty stuff kept outside

Last month I was digging down into our front box and discovered a brown or Arizona recluse spider, glad it was outside and not under the bed as I have a small spot from a previous bite on my belly.

Cool!

We can be at the forefront of a new trend, thanks to Brian B-P for suggesting it. Alas, he'll have to purchase a new trailer to join our cool group.

Hard Data

At least one person has asked and more are probably curious about the heights on the 2nd Gen 19'. Height from the ground to the top of:
-Air Conditioner 108" (2.74m)
-Jack Antenna 105" (2.67m)
-MaxxAir Vent 102" (2.59m) WHEN CLOSED. Taller when open.
-Fiberglass Roof 96" (2.44m)
Disclaimer: trailer was level, partially loaded with supplies and had full tank of water. I was on the roof, so it may have squatted a bit more. Temperature, wind velocity, and who knows what else might affect the dimensions. Measurements were taken an instrument (builders level) which is very accurate, but your conditions might vary. Real world conditions can be affected by specifics to your situation such as the height of the tow vehicle hitch, dips, bumps, and angles on the road that can tip the trailer up and down, and how the trailer is loaded. Balance a pencil across a fulcrum, move one end up and down and watch the corresponding reaction on the other end of the pencil. The height of a trailer is never static. BTW the height of the Air Conditioner is exactly the same as on my former 2014 -19 (1st Gen). .....and the fact that the sign at the Golden Arches says that the overhead obstruction is at 2.8 meters means diddly squat. That's not what caused the demise of my trailer but it did leave a little bit of that special golden colour across the top. I have a check list when I travel that includes the height of the trailer among other things. It comes in handy sometimes.
