Wow that is so helpful. Thanks to all. That was kind of what we had in mind and then to be able to see that someone else has done the same thing. For the few extra inches of counter space we will just have to find a place to put it when lifting the bed or making it etc. Love this forum!

I've often thought if we bought a new 17B we might leave out the wardrobe and just extend the bench, it'll be great to see pictures of yours! We bought our 2005 17B used, so the build choices like that weren't ours to make. My one suggestion if you do that is to put a cabinet door on the end of that bench, so it faces you at the doorway so you can quickly tuck things like shoes inside to keep the floor clear. A lot of people have done this with the front bench that's next to the doorway in the 19s and it seems be a well loved mod.

Since you'll have more under bench space, you'll really only be losing about half to 2/3rds of the wardrobe storage space, but I think you'll be fine without it. You are definitely making a good move rotating the stove because the counter space that you're losing on top of the wardrobe is actually the easiest counter to work on in our trailer (without the stove rotation).

So, are you going to flip a coin over who gets to sit on the side with the elongated bench?

Thanks Hillary we were also thinking that it would be a great place to store shoes etc. We have included that bench door on our build sheet for that purpose. I am going to have to learn to not be such a messy cook with limited counter space. We are hoping to be mostly cooking outdoors as we have always done when tenting - but who knows as this is new to us.

Gbaglo - What an adorable dog! You have given me an idea. The person with the dog (which will be me) should have the lounging seat!
