This post only has one photo. It shows the front driver's side window open. It was already that way. Like I said - I wasn't fiddling, so I didn't even attempt to open any of the windows from inside. They open with a turning knob. Just my luck the window wasn't fully sealed, it'd fall out and guess what - we just paid for the trailer! HA! Not that it would happen, but, hey you never know. I didn't want to test my luck.

Anyway, the window opened farther than I thought it would from the photo Reece had previously posted. So, I was quite pleased to see that.

Okey dokey, now we've got photos of the inside. As you can see, it's very rough inside and I had to be careful I didn't bang my head against any sharp bits of the cabinet framing. I basically stuck to the middle of the trailer and didn't get too close to anything.

First photo shows the front window (the one with the rock guard) from the inside. It's a non-opening window, so you're not gonna see any cranking knobs on it. Note the raw interior. It was kind of cool seeing it in this stage.

Same window in the 2nd photo, but zoomed back a bit. This is the front dinette area.

Next shows the bathroom. Now that was interesting! Fortunately Reece was still there, so I quizzed him about the medicine cabinet. Like I thought, it's going to go behind the toilet. Yes, it'll be molded in, as someone else pointed out in another thread. I didn't ask the size, so we'll have to hang tight for that information later on. Reece said they're still working on that mold (least that's what I think he said; it was kind of noisy at times, so I wasn't sure I heard correctly all the time) for the bathroom. It'll have 3 shelves with a mirrored door that opens out (I had asked if the door slide from side to side). Can't wait to see that when it gets done!

Last photo shows where the 5.0 cu ft frig will go, with the microwave above it. If you opt for the 6.0 cu ft frig, that support piece (just below the top) will be removed and that entire space taken up with the frig.

Oh yeah, on the frig. As you can see from the last photo above, both the upper and lower venting areas have been cut out. They weren't in the original photos Reece posted as it was basically out of the mold and had the awning slapped on. They're a bit farther along in production now.

I also asked about the "external frig fan" option. Reece said the US frigs don't come with one as part of it, so they're added on if you feel it's needed (esp if you're in hotter climates). Also called "Texas fans" as folks in that hotter part of the country needed it. I got it added on to the build sheet as I'm not 100% sure where all we'll be taking the trailer and figured it was easier to add during the build. He said it has a manual switch to turn off if it's too noisy to sleep through.

Tammy said once they start with the inside production and get the new jigs and used to everything, it'll take about 2 weeks for the interior work to get done.

I had asked when the new 21' will be out and she said the new mold will come in about a month from now. So, in about 6 weeks I can go back again once it's all done so I can measure the windows for the blinds.

She also said it's been about a two year process for the new design and they're quite excited about it.

DANG - just realized I forgot to ask if they're changing the stock countertop, flooring and fabric. Shoot! Since I'm getting all those as customs, it didn't even occur to me to ask until now. Sorry.

More interior shots of the windows. First is in the back bed area, with the emergency escape window on the right. Next shows the back window, which is split (previously shown from the outside). 3rd shows the other side of the bed area. And the last photo is of the kitchen area. The window looks to be the same as the one in the bathroom (which is larger than what they used to have in the bathroom; heck if I know about the kitchen if it's same, larger or what).

Okay, last photo. If I remember any other bits of info, I'll post them separately, but I think I've covered everything that was said to me. You folks can chatter about the rest of the interior. I was more interested in the windows and the door and the awning. Raw interiors and framing of cabinets doesn't interest me as much.

This one shows the area outside of where the frig will go.
