We left our stove in the normal orientation also as we mainly used the large burner in our 19, so for us it didn't make sense to have it at the back in the new trailer.

You gain about 2 or 3 inches in counter space between the sink and stove by rotating the stovetop. But, we like the side by side orientation and the space behind the stove so we didn't change it. Totally a personal preference, as are many options. Hard to make a wrong decision.

If you are planning on having a bike rack, you should also have extra tail lights put on. The bikes on a bike rack cover your tail lights and the extra tail lights are very visible and a welcomed advantage when traveling. Additional lights can be added after delivery to all trailers except the 19 due to the difficulty of the shell design.

Regardless if the trailer is bike-rack ready or not (and although Egbert is that and I have yet to haul a bike), I am pleased with my additional tail lights. My son followed me home when taking possession of Egbert. He commented on the visibility of the additional lights...something about a Rockefeller Christmas tree.

Does anyone have a picture of extra tail lights? I didn't get them but would add them for bike carrying.

You do not need them with the 21, it is only a 19' or other unit issue with the lower stock tail lights.

Here they are anyway...for a 15, that is. Others have additional lights mounted vertically on each side of the window.

After following a large stickie with low mounted "small size" tails during a little ol' west coast shower, I definitely would recommend higher mounts.

If I'm being followed by a distracted driver (meaning one of the plethora of cell phone-while-driving gas pedal pushers out there),
then I want their windshield to light up 'all-red' when I hit the brakes.
The extra lights was a no-brainer decision on my build list.

We went with two drawers below the wardrobe. It means some of the clothes won't hang full length but it gives us a His and Hers drawer. Perfect for keys, wallets, glasses...etc. Keeps our stuff from wandering. We added the Umbra hooks along the front and back walls of the bathroom which gives us plenty hanger space for extra clothes, coats, etc.
