The Game of 21 Questions....

So I figure until we really truly decide on which trailer we will end up with, why not ask some "can this be done?" questions. I searched the forum to see if anyone asked some of these question and did not readily find an answer. Not to say they aren't somewhere...

1. My thinking is that if they could put the larger 30 gal tanks on the 19', as well as the larger fridge, think how awesome that would be! Larger bed, same same fridge, same stove/oven...nirvana. Until people tell me it can't be done. I have looked at all 188 pages of "It's Friday!" (ok, maybe at the pictures) and didn't see that mentioned at all. Of course, I don't know the construction limitations, so...

2. Likewise, I haven't found out whether or not a powered fan can be put in the 19' restroom. We have found that to be particularly effective on displacing unwanted air in our Casita.

3. What do the additional vertical tail lights along the back window cost?

4. Does anyone carry 4 bikes on the back of the trailer? We have a 1Up rack that we have had for 2 years and would like to use that on the back to obviously carry our bikes.

5. Has anyone had speakers installed/wired but not had them install their stereo? We tend to stream music via iTunes or the web, so the need for a radio or CD player is not relevant to us, but it might be nice to have expertly installed speakers. It would be an abomination if I tried!!

6. Can you have white painted windows installed throughout the trailer? I have seen some photos that show a window or two, but not all.

7. Do you think it would be possible to have them install http://www.amazon.com/JR-Products-50...N%3DB007HFX5NK. I like the concept of this, as it does not yellow over time. Or maybe not as quick?

I'll add questions as I think of them. Thank you in advance!!

I can't possibly answer all your questions, but others can.

The 19' has a pretty small galley (counter space), adding that stove/oven would take the clear/available counter space down to about 4". I dealt with that in my Scamp. LOVE the larger counterspace in Ten Forward (99% of the size of the 21'), but it depends on HOW you need to use the galley.

Frankly, I like the black windows. I also have black decals which match all the black stuff on my truck (and the tires, etc. on the trailer.)

1) Larger fridge is an option. No room for larger tank. I think the stove is an option.

2) Powered bath fan is now listed as a 19 feature (I think this took a mold change) - I think it is similar to the Casita.

3) Not much - ask, prices change.

4) No info. But others use the 1UP rack.

5) Several people have had this done.

6) I doubt it - have to ask ETI.

7) No one has to date. Have to ask ETI. Some of us have wskipped the vent hood completely.

If you get stereo pre-wiring, you do not get speakers. Don't know if you can pay more for them.

Donna like our fold up table by door . That being said cut the table down so we can leave it up all the time . Now have more counter space and can get in and out of door a lot easier . I can measure it tomorrow but it must be about 11 or 12 in more counter space . Pat

On the tanks, you cannot, for instance, have the larger black tank that is now on a 19' installed on an older 19', so I would suppose that that precludes installing the 21' black tank on a 19'. You can always ask. You can get the bigger refrigerator for $200. See their options list and features list on their website.
