Thanks, Carl. You did a fine job of showing us the trailer. I'm not clear though about that heater under the bed. Did you say it was for the bathroom? Is it gas or electric? How does the heat get into the bathroom?

The heater is 1000 watt electric. It is an alterative to a cube heater on the floor or having the optional strip heater in the A/C. It does put some heat close to the bath. The propane furnace on the 21' is now located in the cabinet by the bed anyway.

The bathroom door has a space at the top and bottom to allow heat to get in. On cold nights it helps to leave the door ajar to minimize cold seat shock.

A couple of threads relative to electric heater mods:

We were the other lucky one's to grab one of the last two 21's for Dec 2015. We waited 8 months and it was Christmas! We just picked ours up on Dec 28th. Very nice present.

Life will be ever so much poorer if we don't get to order one when they open up the new 2017 schedule.
Stephen, you can always use extra time with the trailer if you can get it a little early as there are so many things to get straight. A few short trips will tell you a lot. Then you can have it all in order for something long before the time comes.
