Rick, with the placement of the furnace under the seat, do you think it will be to hot for someone to sit there with the heat blowing on their legs. What about if you are sleeping, will the bed get to warm?

Don't know yet. We haven't had the chance yet to take the 21 out. Hopefully we'll do it soon.

When we had the 19, we used the heater once when the electric heater went out. The furnace did a nice job of keeping us comfortable. Our younger son had used the 19 in a very cold area on many occasions and also was comfortable.

Ruthe your trailer's looking lovely, how exciting!

Burrab2002 - We camped in fairly cool weather (in the 40's) on our way home from Chilliwack. I sit on the 'furnace' side of the dinette. I never felt that it got too hot. Dave sat there a few times and didn't notice any issues. Are you asking about the bed getting too hot if you have the dinette made into a bed? The regular bed area of the 21 is nice and cozy - seemed just the right temp the whole time we camped.

they must have the air diverted so as not to go straight out toward your legs. I was wondering if the dinette was made into a bed, would it trap the air from the heater under the dinette causing the bed to become too warm.

ETI installs a 45 degree diverter in the Atwood to push the heat forward vs under the dinette. Ideally the heater should be on the rear shooting the air straight to the bed but the spare tire prevents that. Reace got Atwood to install the diverter, take the furnace cover off inside and you will see it.

Our 21ft is almost ready. We got pictures the last 2 weeks, but none yesterday. We figured we would see the cushions in place and almost everything wrapped up. It is to be finished the 5th and we drive from Texas and pick up the 12th. Our Virginia friends 21 will be done the 13th, they didn't get pictures yesterday either? Maybe someone got too busy?

We haven't posted the others, we were waiting for a more finished product, but are very happy with what we have seen!
