It's not Friday

We couldn't post any "Friday" pics, as Kim left during our build, so here are a few pictures of our new 19.
We picked up on the 22nd and spent 4 days on our return trip to Utah. One night at Bayview state park WA with full hook ups to test all systems and 2 nights dry camping. We originally were going to dry camp every day but the border crossing/traffic forced a last minute change of plans. The new 150 watt solar worked great, keeping the batteries topped up even on cloudy days. We filled up the tanks at ETI and made it 4 days on 20 gallons (lots of cruising experience - we know how to conserve!) Our only concern was the furnace, it's really loud and can't image sleeping with it on, seems overkill for a small camper. A bit of a concern as we will be doing a lot of high altitude camping.
The 19 stuffs so much camping luxury in a small trailer, we were more than pleasantly surprised, eating ice cream camping just didn't seem right.
Our layout, is a little different, we keep the front dinette made up as a full bed and the rear "lounge" has a 12 inch filler that makes up into a twin at night, we used 3 inch Costco memory gel toppers and just moved the rear topper to the front in the daytime. For meals we just used a small portable table. A few trade offs but a "hangout space" was a priority for us. This is our first camper, so nothing to compare, but we are very impressed.

Hang out space was important to me too. Can't wait to see your pics

Might as well be FRIDAY, because we see PICS! Cool, looks like you got the extra filler board and cushion? I did... love that rear "lounge" with the view out the rear of the trailer.

Quality photos. The first one looks like a Calendar pic. You should share it with ETI.
