Though the 19 and 5.0 share the same one, I believe.

Yes, both of them are identical.

Actually interested in going smaller bathroom wise. Don't need a big place where we spend the least time, rather have easy access to the d.s. bench. Never thought of this till I compared the layouts of the different trailers (being bored waiting for the big reveal) and discovered that the bathroom wall of the 17 nicely lines up with the dinette while the 19 doesn't.
Too bad it's not an option

Perhaps it is because of the sink in the larger models? Plus the 19 is wider...

Having had both a 17b and now a 19, one of the first things I noticed was how much difference the larger bath in the 19 made. While it doesn't seem like a lot when you look at the dimensions, it's a big difference when I use it.

Well I've used my bathroom hundreds of times and the term "big place" has never crossed my mind. My wife uses the d.s. bench as her eating spot and lounging area and I doubt the fact that the bathroom wall doesn't line up with the dinette has ever crossed her mind.

We originally were going to buy a 17 but seeing the larger table in the 19 changed that.

The 19' is very similar in layout to the 17' (although the 19' is normally built with rear space as a permanent bed, which doesn't change other parts of the interior), just a bit bigger in both length (a couple of feet) and width (an extra 10 cm or 4"). Some of the extra space is used for a larger bathroom.

As already mentioned, the bathrooms are all moulded fiberglass shells (so they work as a shower stall), and there is no choice in the bathroom for a given model.

I have not yet heard of an owner modifying a bathroom shell. It would be difficult, if only because there is no room to work. The bathroom shell (in two pieces) is placed inside the lower trailer shell section before it is bonded to the upper section, because the bathroom parts are too large to get in through the doorway. To rework a bathroom shell substantially would at the very least mean removing lots of interior cabinetry, then doing all the fiberglass work inside the trailer.

Yeah, it probably won't work, not even for a new build. As the heights are different as well.
Guess I have to go for the "big" pottie.

Erik,

If you call Toyota directly, AND get past the call center reps, speak to a technical specialist. They are great in providing or interpreting the weights and what can or cannot be installed. I have a '14 4Runner and was told no WDH needed to tow up to my capacity of 5000 lbs.

I can see the 19' and 5.0TA having the same footprint (so it would look the same on a floorplan), but doesn't the bathroom go to the ceiling? The 5.0TA has a different (sloped, taller) roofline from every other model.
