I picked up my 19 at the end of October. The only thing I don't care for is the 90 degree door.

(Even though we are in the city, both the driveway and the road are gravel).
Nice colors, btw. Is there any pattern in the white of countertops, or is it solid?
Just to toss in that we have a lip at the top of our driveway and a steep down. Our past trailer we had to put boards under the front wheels to get past the lip and boards under the back wheels at a strategic spot to not bottom out (6 foot long 2 by 4's). We got the lift on our Escape19 - and it allowed us to go over the lip with no trouble and only a very short board - like less than 2 feet long under the back wheels at a strategic point toward the bottom. We can actually go down with nothing with the sway bars on, but don't want to put strain on the sway bar so decided after doing that once to not do it again (even though it looked like it was probably fine).
