Wow Steve, you surprised me! Congrats on your purchase. Planning on breaking in the 21 on the Alcan Highway?

Gotcha Robert! We have been considering this for a while. Really, really like the 5.0 TA but just can't give up the pickup bed. We saw Marv and Vicki's (gen 2) recently and that sealed the deal. As to the Alcan, maybe '18. Not a good time for us southerners to be heading that far north in October ❄️!

Great! You are going to love it. That long wait time might shrink when they get their expansion online.

Anybody keeping count of the 19-21 migrations? Only aware of one in reverse, however that is likely to change in a year

Steve, could'be sworn you said you didn't like the floor plan on the 21. What changed your mind?

Well it wasn't me so much me as my wife was not too crazy about it. But we recently spent a lot of time going over Marv and Vicki's 2nd gen and this changed things for her. My biggest negative on the 21 is the black tank-wish it was the same size (30 gallon) as the 5.0TA. But there are always compromises and the advantages out weigh the negatives. And in 2018 we may be traveling most of the year so the larger size will work better.

Hey Steve, are you sure that black tank is only 22 gallons? I know that's what the spec says but I thought I remembered the new one was larger.

My other thought is, you know there is a ton of space under the bed. If you want a larger tank, they might be able to install one for you.

Marv,
I did confirm with Sarah the tank capacities at 28/28/22. I do intend to ask Reace about a larger black tank. Hopefully he will go for that.

With the bathroom at the front a 30 gal. tank will add 66.72 Lbs. to the tongue weight plus the additional weight of the tank. You may not drive much with it completely full but Reece has to use that in the calculations. That can affect the kind of tow vehicle he can recommend using to pull the trailer. They may also have to consider the full propane tanks and loaded storage box in the worst case scenario.
