How exciting! I'm happy for all of you and thanks again for sharing.
I have perimeter exterior lights on a switch, but didn't have the foresight to ask for the fixture version that had an on/off switch at the bottom. I'm going to change out the ones on the driver's side so I can turn them off if I bother a neighbor. That way I can still have safety lighting but not annoy a neighbor.

That is very thoughtful as I am one of those who find exterior RV lights left on at night somewhat annoying.

I ask, because I saw a couple trailers at the Escape Rally that had their running lights on, which to me seems really strange, as I don't understand the purpose, as they are meant for travel. Maybe in case you get lost?

BTW, your trailer is sure looking fine, Donna. After touring Reace and Alf's at the rally, I do have a tinge of jealousy, though truth be told, our 19 really is working great for us, for now.
Yep, four porch style lights on the exterior. On the 5er, three are standard. I just added the LED porch light at the rear.

Folks jumping the umbilical with a fuse seems to be popular for lighting up running/brake lights at night. Maybe it's a West Coast thing

19 days and I can now count down on my fingers and toes!

I have to give a huge thank you to Donna for starting this thread. It's not only thoughtful, but very helpful. I was also wondering, is this the longest thread here?

2012 trailer probably has the opening bathroom ceiling vent with white shield. Bathroom in today's trailers have an opening ceiling vent with an electric fan and a round black shield.

How nice of you. I just thought it would be great way to keep build pictures together. I understand why folks would want to start a thread about their own trailer though.

I've probably posted a gazillion times in this thread alone, no wonder it's soo long

Hi, Donna,
Did you furnish the sink for ETI or did they get it for you?
Thanks,
Sandi

These pictures always make me so excited! We're still in the early stages of the build sheet for our 19', but I appreciate everyone who posts updates and specifics on options and changes! So helpful for those of us still in the process of figuring it all out - thanks!
