I have heard that no rv is perfect, and our Artic Fox fifthwheel has had a number of issues that has left me a little disappointed. Most were caused by poor craftmanship by the various installers. But, that being said, I would consider buying another. For the $$ we spent, it sufficed. Just don't go into one expecting it to be as all season as they boast. Ours was pretty drafty.

We usually store the table in our vehicle and the 'legs' on the shelf above the seating area. One reason I would prefer a non-u-shaped seating arrangement is that when using the area for eating, we typically bump the table and coffee spills--especially when the one and four year old grandkids are visiting. If it were against the wall we would likely have less of an 'oops'--but I am not sure. All this said, we love our trailer and wouldn't trade it for the world. We are getting ready for a Spring full of adventures and moving that fun into Summer and Fall. You can't go wrong with whatever you choose! We've had such fun memories already!

Several of us have wanted a "living room" where we could put a Bark-O-Lounger, and Reace has stated the cabinetry is needed to keep the back end of the trailer from getting "floppy."
Actually Donna I am wanting the 19 to have a big bench dinette where the big bed currently lies. This dinette would have 2 bench seats, 60 inches wide. I would want the dinette cushions to be 4 individual seat cushions and 4 individual back cushions approx. 30 inches each.
Then my plan is to remove one set of cushions from the back end of each bench. This would make the front half of the dinette a two-person dinette, and the back 30 inches would be the bare tops of the back floor benchs. Having this bare would allow the possibility of doored cubicle units to sit flat on top and support the work table /counter, as well as hide tools and supplies needed as I work. While the front two person dinette would remain as a dinette with a removable pedestal table.
My work stool would roll between the two benches, and under the work table when I am not working.

I would have the current front dinette made into a permenant bed.

I know, big "wants"........ and dreams.
😊
But I am prepared and would understand if Reace and Tammy tell me it cannot happen. But until then, I will continue to draw my sketches to show that it can!

This certainly could be modded pretty close to what you're describing. All the utils are in the front half of the drivers side bench on the 19, and the rest is clear. The only question I would see is whether Reace wants to do it. We already know they can flop the floor plan on the 19 with permanent bed up front and dinette in the back, so all you are adding is a small removable dinette table at the front of the rear dinette and your work table across the rear part of the dinette. If ETI says no on the custom stuff on the rear dinette, go to a van customization shop and have them do it after you get the trailer. They do that kind of stuff all the time.

Not really that radical. Just changing from a permanent bed to a conventional dinette would probably work fine.

Ros, now I have a better idea of what you're describing. Seems doable to me. If not by ETI as others have said, surely another business could do it for you if you can't do it yourself.

If not ordering sight unseen is being a chicken, I'm scratching the dirt along with ya! The alternative of spending $30K before you see it is scarier! Don't forget the used market, stick a want ad here after you look at another owners 19/21 thru the owner show network.
