I agree with Jim on the chrome wheels, I find the steel ones to be constant upkeep, unless you don't mind rust. it may depend on where you live?

Yes, the EMS by Progressive is needed if you ever hook up to cg electric.

My suggestion is to turn the two-burner stove from horizontal to vertical. I love the way mine turned out and really did increase the counter space which is at a premium.

Cable for rearview camera ? Power wires for cabinet Lighting later they won't do the under bed lighting etc but can put a power drop there and in cabinets I believe.

No on the wheels. Stock are fine.
No foam, don't really need it.
No bike rack cuz no bikes.
Ez lube axle was not on option sheet - will add, thanks for reminder.
Sink/stove locations are fine with us.
No additional 120v outlets besides the stock 3.

I second the 12 v drops into the under bes area and upper kitchen cabinet for future lights, they can't put them in but will run the wires. I am curious why no spray foam?

I'm not sure you will gain that much more space with the 2 burner ss stove in the 17' model turned sideways but another idea is since you are getting the window over the sink and the stock sink is right next to the dinette window, aesthetically it may look better to have some separation of these windows by reversing the sink and the stove so that the window is further away rather than right next to the rear dinette window. Something to think about. Also since it is an opening window it will feed you overhead fan better regardless if you have the dinette window open.

Thought about it after you suggested it before Donna. Would add a couple inches laterally, but we also like the space behind when its mounted normally.

Hmm. Good points. Will go over the arrangement of sink/stove again with the wife. If she's happy I'm happy.

We really debated this one but eventually decided against it. Aesthetics, and won't be in the colder regions as much. We may lay down some carpet squares on the vinyl floor so it's not as cold on bare feet whenever we do find ourselves in colder climes.
