Wouldn't be hard to go backwards a bit, remove the microwave and have ETI ship you the drawers. Microwave could plug into any outlet, so just make it portable and get your storage back.

A waste of space? Where would one store the bread and muffins without one?

It's easy to get overwhelmed with all the options and customizations that you can get with your new Escape. It got to the point it was freaking me to to some extent.

I'm getting a 19 and am putting the microwave under the cook-top. I opted to move the two galley drawers to the left and lose a bit of storage under the sink, but added two drawers under the closet and put 3 shelves in the closet, which more than makes up for the galley storage.

Similar to my kitchen remodel, I wanted my sink, cooktop and microwave together and the frig needed to stay in the factory location.

I focused on the options that needed to be done by the factory, such as drawers, U-shaped booth, etc and can further personalize my 19 as needed myself. Once I submitted my build sheet, I stopped focusing on the many factory customizations that I may have over looked and just wait until I can pick her up (2 weeks!)

Overall advise, try not to over think it. Remember, it's your camper. Set it up the way it works best for you.
Don't make excuses for failure, seek ways to succeed.

In the huge cabinet that the small microwave goes in. All our dry foods go in that cabinet, which is arranged with wire shelving. Mind you, we usually have little for bread and muffins.
