Houston is closer for you but if you happen to be in the Dallas area we are in Flower Mound and be glad for you to look at our 21.

Hi Steve,
We are here in Chilliwack ready to pick up our 5.0 TA on Tuesday 6/10 and will be on the road for a while, but we plan to meet up with friends in Flower Mound TX in August before we head back to South Florida. I don't know exactly what route we'll take back, but most likely we'll be going through Louisiana at some point. Maybe you'll be able to take a look at ours, if our travels take us anywhere near you.

Thank you all for your offers to view your trailers. I will consider them all. If I can't view a 21 or a 19, I might take Bob and Sue up on their 5.0. I really appreciate all your offers. You folks are great. I know I'm in good company

Raising 4" in 21'

When looking at the pics of the 21' dining area I realized that I need to know some more information. If 4" are added to raise the dining area where does the top of the pillow end? Right under the window? How tall are the back pillows and do they need to be made shorter to fit? When the table is raised 4" is it significantly higher than the kitchen counter? Just trying to get the overall sense of this change. Thanks much.

Hey Steve,

We are in Houston and will be home for the next 4 weeks or so. would be happy to show you our 21ft. We are very happy with the set up. The bed is fine and seems larger than a double. We had a 17ft Casita and are amazed at the room a few feet more gives you. The dinette cushions are a good height and can see out the window with no problem. We are not that tall. Anyway if you would like a look see, let us know!

Leon, I may be confused as to what you're planning here, but please see my previous post on page 9. I don't see how you're going to raise the benches while maintaining cushions that fit below the window frames. And if you cut down the back cushions to fit below the window frames, then they won't be usable to make the bed, if you so desire.

Here are some measurements from our 21 along with some pictures: counter top is 35" from the floor, table top is 32" from the floor, and the dinette bench seats (no cushion) is 18.5" from the floor. The back cushion is 18.5" tall which sits on top of the seat cushion, which in our case is 4" thick.

Hope this helps, and please let me know if I'm all confused here
Tom

Tom,

this is the info I was looking for, but it is academic as Tammy just sent me an email saying they can't raise the floor in the rear dinette 4". We were concerned because the photos of the 21 on the ETI website make the windows appear a bit higher in relationship to the seats. But I am sure we will be just fine. Thanks again.
