Might want to rethink this one, NG is also a common acronym for No Good.

This is the same issue as with cars, which is addressed by identifying the model year. Since trailers don't follow such as well-known model year progression, just specifying the year might not be as effective a descriptive tool as it is with cars... so some indication in the name might be beneficial for this reason.

Although a meaningful change in dimensions, structurally there seems to be no greater change than the detail tweaks that occurred from 17' to 10', or 19' to 21'. I see this as next model revision, but nothing fundamentally different... but it will still matter to most buyers which version they're getting.

The biggest technical change is those beam axles and leaf springs (instead of Torflex), but I don't think that should drive the naming or the declaration of a "next generation".

Actually Brian, there is a big difference between the 19 and 21 frames. According to Reace the 21' is totally new 2x4 frame vs the other 2x3 frame and has more cross members. Supposedly a lot stiffer and has the larger axles/wheels.

The biggest different I notice between the Classic 5.0 and the new build will be in the kitchen area, then too it's flipped. Refer now on drivers side, sink on door side. Besides that new loooong counter. Swoon!

The 19' now also has the 2X4 frame. When Reace built the 21' frame he liked it so much he wanted to use it on the 19' too. I spoke to Reace about this a while back and he decided to go ahead and put the change into production sometime just before ours was built in August. He said the new 19' frame only weights 40 lbs more but is a lot stronger. I know ours has the new frame but not exactingly sure when the change was made.
