Gather everyone is happy with their trailer, but I was wondering if you could build one out again what would you change, remove or request added? Why?

I wish we'd had more time for the return trip. There are so many places to see and we only had 3 weeks

Opening loft windows instead of the double pane. Replace the holding tank sensors. Still undecided about the spray foam, if I ever have to work on anything down there I'll update this post.

I would have gotten solar and had it pre-wired for AC.

If had to do it again the only thing I would do different would be to order the front storage tool box. I could kick myself every time I think about not ordering it.

Works fine for the 2 of us, nice to put up the legs once in a while, also provides a fair amount of extra storage. The table legs make it a bit awkward to access the back cushion so sitting along the back doesn't happen much. Does make the table considerably smaller, but it's still decent size. All in all, we like it.
