We are getting the solar and dual 6. What do you use the inverter for?
Any idea what the $21 fridge fan is?
We use the inverter for coffee maker and vitamix and Costco air pump/charger unit, plus anything else we need to charge.

The $21 fridge fan could be this, which can be had for $13 from Camping World.

We hung clothes in the 19, and plan to in the 5.0TA. I put 2-3 shirts per hanger. I know others like the shelf space, but we really like hanging. I think the usable space does not differ, it is just in different places.

I would just do the counter extension at the left of the galley. If by chance you thought you might want another, they are real easy to add.

I will not be getting an inverter. It all depends on your camping style and what you bring. We have nothing that requires 120V when we camp, it is just our style.

I like the idea of a wireless fridge thermometer, and easy way to keep track of things without heat getting in the fridge when you open the door.

Formica, fabric and flooring, so much good stuff to choose from. Have fun with that.

I have used one of those for 20 years now, and they make a great difference on the evenness of the temperatures in the fridge, especially at getting the cooled air into tighter spots.

Does the fan just sit on one of the shelves in the fridge?

Yes it does, and mine is the one from our 2010 17B. Rudimentary but sturdy powered by 2 D-cell batteries.

$21 CAD is $15.97 US currently.
Got to keep currency exchange in mind when comparing prices.

Looks to be a good thing to have whether at $13 or $16. I'm in.

Yep, 30K is pretty much my goal too. With current exchange rates you can get a nicely equipped 21 for about that.

The closet shelves I have seen from ETI are fixed in place. Don't know the spacing. I chose to install adjustable shelves and pull out drawers as the closet is over 21 inches deep without any lights.
