I just got my 19 home, so it's a bit early for me.

I passed on the alloy wheels because the cost of options was spiraling out of control and something had to give. I can add them later if I choose.

I view the outdoor shower as a dog wash. I may use it myself at some point; but my Newf has never seen anything disgusting that she didn't want to roll in.

I'm 100% sure that I have twice as many lights and 12v outlets as I need. It was hard to predict how we are going to use them and it seemed better to go overboard.

I deleted stereo and TV. We weren't sure what we wanted or where we wanted it. I had a couple of walls reinforced to accommodate whatever we decide.

I bought the aluminum rims for one reason only, they look better in my opinion. My purchase of the 5.0 TA was a one time only, so I decided not to cut myself short on things I might enjoy or only use occasionally...we only live once!

Scuba55, we must have been born in the same moon.....or something like that. Yes, this is a one time deal for us too. So far, we are gorging ourselves on the options - sheet is due June 1. All of the insights on the Forum have been enlightening and helpful. Some options I will delete, keep most, and add a couple others. I like the 'rust' argument. I am sure I can justify the aluminum wheels with that excuse! Thanks.

Out of curiosity are anyone's white rims rusting? They did on my old Starcraft but the ones used by ETI look to be better quality. They were showing rust in their 3rd year.

Mine aren't rusting. But Ten Forward is only 8 months old. I do keep them waxed. Easy enough to do. Using the chamois on all the chrome bling on my tug is tougher.

We use the external shower as much as we can....just wish it we on the door side (would Reace do that?) Gone back& forth on the Quick Connect and for $150 its all good. We do carry a different hose for when we want to put a tank on the picnic table to run the Campchef oven.

You would think the shower would be better on the door side but then if you think about getting a lot of water on that side, maybe not a good idea.

Am thinking of the passenger rear side near the battery compartment on the 21. One would have more privacy in most situations.

Yes, that might work. We asked about adding a shower at an RV place and they said they thought the structure would not be sufficient without reinforcement. We never asked ETI.

We had Escape put the shower on the passenger side. They had no issues doing this. We use it for dish washing more than anything else. I would reconsider and likely put it on the driver side if we wanted to use it for showering.
