Beautiful looking 21'.

I love your choice of fabric and counter top, they match the fridge, sparkle and look very slick. The decal colour is also real classy. Excellent choices.

You should be excited. Have a great day.

Made it! Toto followed us home after we hitched up in Sumas - it was a quick dash to beat what was promised to be a drenching, breezy weather front. We got home just as the drops started to fall. The Frontier seemed to do fine and we had fun learning how to navigate roundabouts. And of course everyone at ETI -- Tammy, Reace, Rhonda, Crystal, Dennis & Joe -- were wonderfully helpful. Also, Ben the dog, don't want to leave him out.

We'll be camping in the driveway as soon as the raindrops slow down a little, then off to a nearby state park on the Hood Canal for our first short trip out whenever we get a couple of dry-ish days. Big fun!

Alf, yes, I felt I had to extend them to get a good look at the adjacent lanes. HOWEVER, we took a (Washington State) ferry on the way home and I decided, possibly wisely, to scoot them back in before boarding the ferry, where things get kind of narrow.

After we got on the ferry and we were crossing Puget Sound, I thought it would be okay to go ahead and extend them before exiting the ferry, since driving onto the boat hadn't been too difficult. WRONG. As usual, our lane was the last to exit the boat, and I had to cringe each time a car whooshed by us on the right as they exited, hoping they wouldn't hit my extended mirror.

They didn't. But I won't make that mistake again. Others, surely, but not that one.

It looks really great, Ian. Why does a young fellow like yourself have an electric jack though?

Are you doing the cushions yourself, or are they just not in yet. When are you picking it up?

I chose the electric jack so wifey can do everything needed to enjoy the trailer should I no longer be around - advance planning, this 21 is the last trailer we ever intend to buy and we assumed it will be serviceable for 20 years or so.

Thanks Jim, we are thrilled. The cushions are just not in yet (although I see a corner of them on the mattress). We had the cushions covered 100% with fabric rather than having the vinyl back, we have the vinyl installed on the back side in the Boler and wish they were all fabric so we could flip them. To protect the fabric from wearI will be installing carpet over the plywood on the seats.

Electric jack because of my back, I installed one on the Casita and it makes life so easy to hook-up and unhook the WDH, I am hoping the same is true for the Anderson system.

We are picking it up on our way out the the 2015 Escape rally

Electric jack makes it quite simple to hook up/unhook the Anderson by taking the tension off the chains. I like it far more than futzing with draw bars.
