They did cherry or some other wood on somebody's many years ago but would not do that lately.

I spend hours, while camping, trying to identify repetition in the pattern in the 'oak' grain.
Better than television.

Oak grain, like a McDonald's bacon double cheeseburger, will repeat on you every time.

Do like cherry too . Pat

Seems like these oak doors are natural with a catalyzed varnish. It is a tough finish and doesn't require any extra steps with color. My brother got maple cabinets and his are contemporary looking but look kinda orange-ish to me. Natural maple is going to look kinda dead IMO.

For me, I'd much rather have the existing real oak than a paper finish cherry or any other wood picture on my cabinet doors like so many other rv's. Rah!

Darker wood, or lighter, gives you a change when having had an Escape.

Beautiful router table!
For us since we like to be outside except bad weather or to sleep the 19 has everything we could want . The nice big queen bed is what is important for us to get good sleep . Do not want a longer trailer to handle, to store ,tow etc. the width is the same as a 23 ft Oliver . What is not to like ? Still have our much bigger bath then previous Rv had and can cook , have a place to sit . Trailer has everything in a nice space . We all have our needs and wants. Good we are not all alike . What can I say .Love this trailer just the way it is . Pat

I do definitely miss the queen bed! But like other things on the 21'. Yes, it is a trade. Loved our 19'. Love our 21', too. And I hope the new shell they are doing is not different enough to matter to us!

Windows with rain gutters, camo graphics, and more solar capacity.

I was hot after a lounge seating arrangement, but the u-shaped dinette with Springfield pedestal takes care of that one nicely.
