I appreciate that option also especially when temps are just above freezing and it's raining / snowing. Of course with you living in a tropical region of Wisconsin it is less of an issue.

and talk and write with an accent. My sister lives near Madison and
my wife and I can hardly understand her. I studied how to speak southern at the University of Tennessee at Knoxville but I failed miserably. We had 21 below F this morning so enjoy your warm weather , I will just keep hauling firewood.

Nope, I'm married and she's fine with the choice, it was her idea. We've been negotiating back country outhouses for years. She was claustrophobic in the standard 19, deleting the bathroom opened it up a lot.

Do the dogs sleep on the permanent bed and you get the smaller one for yourself? Not exactly small dogs, are they?
I'll grab a picture when the snow melts a bit, that may be a while, it's drifted in at the moment. I have 2 cabinets with drawers, the counter space that goes with that, and another window. It really opened up the trailer and gave the 19 some much needed counter space.

My wife lowers the dinette for the dogs, because nothing is too good for our babies (grumble).

So if you have no bathroom, where do you do your business?

Most campgrounds have restrooms or pit toilets. Backpackers always seem to manage out in the wilds.

We love the bath but that's the cool part - you choose what's right for you. I can see where the 19 would have a whole new look without the big enclosure for the bath. Heck, probably looks bigger than a 21 inside!

Nope, 19 isn't as wide as the 21.
