Ellen, you are more than welcome to stop by and visit Ten Forward, green balloon or not. I'll be camping so the poor 5er may not be pristine neat/clean. Just know that!

We have been in our new 19' for 5 months since April.
perhaps raise your dining area 3 - 4 inches? It's an option and really makes looking out the window nicer.
We got the screen room. It's nice, but there are others one can buy which also allow for zipping up of solid plastic walls, for when it's cold, rainy, and windy. In retrospect, we wouldn't have got the Escape screen room for the reason it's not 'convertable'.
Lastly, put in LED lights for all lights! They're great.

I second raising the dinette. It's easy to do during the build but harder after the fact. You should sit in a 19 and think about window height. Your mileage may vary but the seats were too low for us.

Thanks.

Raising the dinette 4" is one of the best options we added. It will also add 4" of depth in storage to the benches, since the raised floor doesn't extend under the benches. Now add a Springfield pneumatic 3 stage pedestal (self installed in about 20 minutes) and you have one great setup.

Just wondering why the 3 stage single pedestal is such a big improvement, especially if one never intended to make the dinette into a bed? Thanks

Personal preference, if you stay with the stock set up there is no need for any change.
