Loews has the type with 2 USB and a single 120V. Fits in a standard box fine - added to my Casita.

I may get some of the combo 120volt/USB outlets, but if so it will be an aftermarket thing. I am trying to be somewhat respectful of Reace and ETI's patience in customization, and with all the 12volt outlets, I probably won't need them.

Oh, and I forgot to mention to J Mac that the solar powered melon baller will be on the shopping list for that first visit to camping world -- the one where you go spend more money than you planned on because somethings are either "so useful", or "so cute" that you just can't resist. ETI won't offer it as an option.

LeonW,
While you have your Visa out, you may also want to consider Camping World's solar powered tanning beds and booths.

I don't see any point in these, at least for me. They are pointless unless you are on shore power, running a generator, or using a built-in inverter... and in each of those cases inexpensive USB adapters in 12V sockets or even the AC sockets work as well. The big difference is that the 12V adapters also work when there is no AC power.

Also, when USB power standards change, those special outlets will be obsolete, but new adapters can be just plugged in. Not long ago 500 mA ports would have been fine, but now at least 1500 mA is expected for some devices; some of those combination receptacles are probably already obsolete.

Our approach is to use the 12V USB adapters. I bought a half dozen of them online for a couple $ each. They work well in the car and trailer for charging almost all of my USB devices (ipads, ipod, cell phone, etc). I have transformers with 12V plugs on them that I use for the television, Bluetooth speaker, and laptop. We don't actually bring any devices with us that plug directly into the 120V system.

I considered getting some to the 12volt dedicated USB adaptors. But soon came to my senses and realized that it was just as easy to have the little insert and that way I could use the 12volt socket for other things as well.

Leon,

Again I wish to thank you for putting your build sheet on paper, it has and will continue to be use full.

My build list is very similar to yours, one item of difference is the shelf / cabinet to the right of the entry door. I have ask ETI to place a second wardrobe in that location. A mirror image of the standard wardrobe. $300 adder. All of the 5.0 build pictures I have looked at had the standard cabinet / shelf with drawer.

I intend to travel for months at a time and the extra storage space will be use full, add to that I do not like shelves that encourage visible clutter. Anal intensive is how I refer to my condition.

I am glad this was helpful. I had mixed thoughts about posting it. I know that some items are perennial subjects of discussion -- Microwave vs. no Microwave, for example. We talk about these items often, but the end result is always "different strokes for different folks". But on the other hand, I am a bit afraid of missing something that should obviously be included, or just making a bone-headed decision. So I figure more eyes reviewing it is useful.

I assume when you mention the wardrobe to the right of the entry door, you are talking about your 15, right? I don't think there is room for a wardrobe there in a 21.
