Ah, good catch Mary. There's no year shown on the web page, but of course it would be targeted for people who are shopping now (so 2016 pricing and delivery), not those who have already purchased.

It likely makes more economic sense to spec all frames with the "bike rack ready" feature rather than order as needed.

Drivers side access door under the dinette doesn't make a lot of sense to me as that's where the furnace and EMS controller is located on the sides of the seat support framing. Easy to access from inside with the flip-up plywood seat - that's where we store our vacuum and 12V fan.

Second access door is under the dinette, I see, from their site. Wonder if anyone has it? Our 19' had extra electrical cord which we often used and tire covers and some other things and that second hatch would be great access for us. In addition, the door was next to the bench in our 19'. Now the bench is at the other end of the trailer so we would have to go through if raining or muddy to get any exterior items that we want there. We liked our 19' set-up and we want whatever we can keep from that.

Paul has a 21' and apparently did not pay for bike rack ready. Did others with a 21' pay for it who have it?

Paid for bike rack ready; if they moved the heater then there is more usable storage under driver's side dinette, but I still wouldn't have an outside access. The standard access under the bed is very functional and we shove large items such as tall fold up chairs & roll up mats under the bed from outside.

Not sure why you would want to pay to omit EZ lube. I was beginning to think I wasted $100 to get them however my mechanic says they're great. To each their own of course.

I just noticed that led lighting is a standard feature for 2016. Good move ETI.

We have no use for EZ Lube. The seals are not checked or replaced by pumping in grease. We also hear you can pump grease right past them and that would be bad.

But, can't you just continue to have the bearings checked and repacked?

Yes they can be manually packed.
