Build Sheet Signed

Finally got the build sheet done and signed off today. Thanks to all the posts here that helped us with that process.
We went with custom formica, fabric, and flooring so it was a large number of samples spread out over our dining room table over the last three months.

The other highlights, some of which were added due to the 10% jump in the exchange rate since we ordered in April.
2-burner stainless stove rotated 90
SS Sink n faucet
6.7 cu fridge
Dual 6v batteries
Solar
Surge protector
Removable power cord
add window over sink
add window in bathroom
Thermal package
Vertical brake lights
4 captains lights
A/C with digital thermostat
Bike ready
Jack TV Antenna
Cabinet door at bench
Drawer under closet
2 shelves in closet
Exterior Shower (for washing feet at the beach)
Propane Quick connect
Microwave
U dinette
Filler cushion/board
2-extension tables
Power tongue jack
Foot flush

Items considered that got cut:
1500 Inverter
Storage Box
Upgraded Rims
Spray foam

We decided we're not going to pull the sheet out any more and look at it so we don't second guess anything.
Now we wait....

Rethink the storage box. Wet stuff, muddy power cord, the outdoor 6x12 mat, a box of tools, the chocks, water filter, water hose, crank for the stabilizers, and a few other items needed for setup when you get to the site.

I agree, it is worth it.

(The power jack is meh to me, I need the exercise. The cranking is not hard at all and I think I can beat the speed of the power jack.)

Very well thought out build sheet. Another vote though for the storage box.

Nice build, but as others mention, get the front box, you will use it more than the electric tongue jack....

I'm not one to criticize or question anyone's choice of anything, but after seeing the front box on my trailer I have to agree with the others on reconsidering it. It's one of the best additions you can get! Extremely functional and super well made.

Umm, the OP has been a member since 2013 and has, presumably, read almost every post on this forum, including the pros and cons of the storage box. It seems to me that an informed decision has already been made. BTW, although I have it and love it on my 15, if I were to buy a 19, I wouldn't get it either.

Nothing wrong with being the lone one standing at the cliffs edge after everybody else has jumped!
