On our 17B we have hooks on the side if the closet by the door, the side if the refridgerator (also by the door)' and on the wall of the bathroom. They hold everything from towels to jackets to the dog leash. You can see a photo here.

Here is a pic of just a peek of the Umbra hooks in Egbert (upper left); they were mounted on the wardrobe cabinet (not reinforced) when I picked up the trailer at ETI. They are absolutely great and fit in so well with the interior finish. I bought a five-hook unit and Reace cut it into two pieces (three hooks + two hooks) and mounted them.

OK, as promised, pics of the bedlift for the 21 (sorry I'm not that great at loading multiple pics - can't make them come out right side up):

Anyway, the first pic is the lift with one arm installed. The kit comes with 2 arms. Dave added the board in pic 2 to position if correctly. The instructions say if the lid won't close move the base back in one to two inch increments!! I don't know how many holes they wanted us to drill but Dave moved the left arm back as far as he could and did not reinstall the second arm. (Pictures 3 and 4 are where the second arm was originally placed).

Works great, pops right open and stays up (and stays closed!).

Kathie (and many thanks to 8) Dave)

Wonder if ETI would consider making this standard equipment? Very nice!!

Would also add a vote for the Umbra hooks. They match the finish work in the trailer very nicely. Kim ordered ours and Dave installed them during our orientation. Not cheap but worth the cost. We put them on the back side of the bathroom wall above the driver's side dinette seat. This lets us use the two optional drawers in the closet without a lot of clothing in the way. The drawers were also a plus...one for her and one for me. Nice place for keys, wallet, glasses, and other misc stuff that tends to wander.

Looks like the mattress is in place in the first 2 photos?

I ask ETI for the bed lift and was told no, forget the reason. I can say the bed lift is easier with the 21 than it was with the 19……..

can not make out the lower attachment point. they sell these kits with dual lifts but in various sizes, "hit or miss" situation.

The hold open strut is a good idea... our door opens from the side, so it'd look a little different.
That under bed storage is huge - Tashi walked in through the access door when she was checking things out
of course so is all the other storage. I used 40 feet of 12" and 12 feet of 21" shelf liner in the overheads, cabinet shelves and drawers.

It does hold the mattress up. Although, with 2 arms, the hatch would not stay closed and it was pushing the hatch forward so it would not fit the opening when closed. Dave added the the boards between the frame for the lower attachment points, they included the blocks of wood for the upper attachments. Oh yes, the size was 'small'. Agree Paul - there is tons of storage under there - now we have 'easy access'.
