I really like the small storage cabinet as the Endless Breeze 12v fan fits very nicely in that space.

Okay, this comment does not make sense to me. There's now this solid area where the cabinet used to be. How can I not be losing storage space? Krista said the wardrobe is a bit bigger, but it doesn't look that much bigger to me, as in making up for the space that was taken away. The microwave cabinet looks to be the same size as before. It's just been moved up.

When I was last up there Reace and I were inside the 21 at the same time and I flipped that door up and mentioned how I had purchased some hinges (via a post on this forum) that will keep that door open on its own. I mentioned it in the hopes of him saying "oh, that's a great idea, we should do that" sort of situation.

Yeah, I know there's more important things in life and all that. But I can still be bummed if I want to, can't I? I've got some new rubber stamps coming today - maybe I'll take some frustration out by pounding them on paper and soothing my mind by coloring the images in. Yeah, that works for me! They look to be really fun to use.

Might be able to talk ETI into giving you the "old" style, if you moan enough.

My bet is they gonna say yes. Very flexibele people! They even made 4 drawers, wider overhead cabinet doors and a round table for our 19.

Maybe it also improves the ventilation for the mickeywave? (It doesn't look like that cabinet is much/any higher, so would now have more head room.)

I agree (and had noticed) the spacing of the doors in the new stack is uneven and doesn't look very elegant. Perhaps that will evolve to a more even spacing as ETI works with customers on this - much as they did when they had to move the furnace location.

I know and that table is stunning! I've been wondering if it would be doable for us. You'll have to let everyone know how it is when you start to use it and if it works as well as it looks like it would while using the u-shaped dinette as a lounge (which is what we're gonna do).

Did you ever post how much it cost ya?

I don't remember the 4 drawers though. Please remind me with a link to the thread that shows it. Too many threads for me to remember where you posted the photos. thanks

If you're sweating lost storage space, here's a good Plan B:

Let me rephrase, if you have a 10x12 room and 2 doors entering the room and you close off one of the doors, the room is still 10x12. The space is still there in the trailer but only accessible by one door.

I was shown this exact area of the 2017 21' at ETI recently and the above is a correct assessment of the change.
