It's well made with quality materials.
That said, I've only used mine a couple times.
It is fastened to the trailer at the awning and with snaps to the trailer itself.
I was going to ask how it was connected to the trailer.
I was interested so I could keep a closer eye on my dogs and to keep the bugs at bay
Your dog seems to enjoy it lol
Thank you

No reason to freak out, but they have to drill holes for the snaps, if that's a major concern to you. I have had no issues, nor do I expect to.
As far as having to fully open the awning, I don't see why that would be an issue. If you are concerned about wind, the screen room makes the awning more stable, since wind can't freely get under it.

Not freaking out was just curious and someone else commented about opening the awning
But thanks for the info

Picked up our 21 last month and it came with a black microwave - Dometic but kinda small at 0.7 cubic feet. Didn't fill up the space completely, either.

Microwaves need "breathing" room to vent. Besides having that bit of extra space will allow you to replace it with a different brand/model when the time comes.

Well said. The ones that completely fill the cabinet space are usually front vented, which is not the case with this one.

We were impressed with the microwave ETI installed. Although it is small, it has many good features. Usually when you see the small microwaves in the discount stores, the smaller the size, the less features.
