Is the goal to not have to move, bend or twist one's body at all?

That is part of it, and ease during use. Being creative maybe has a bit to co with it too.

One thing I found in our 19, is that the table was always too far from the backrest of the bench, unless we sat both on one side. With a 4 way slide, and a U-shaped dinette (I am slowly becoming a convert), we could sit one at the back, and one on one side, and each could adjust the table as close as they like.

You are too rough on yourself, Robert. I would have not been so harsh, and would have just said lazy &^%$^&.

Jim,
Will you also convert to air conditioning and solar in your new unit?

Air for sure, as we hope to head south a bunch. Solar of some kind, just not sure what yet.

We went to a michigan fiberglass get together today and looked at a 2015 19. It had very few options beyond standard. Air,bike rack ready, TV mount, and antenna were the only options I noticed. It was a lovely trailer that anyone could be happy in.

The standard dinette was comfortable even when I stretched out to a lounge position. I'm glad I made my last minute change from the u shaped to the standard dinette, it felt more open than the u shaped we looked at before ordering.

Another thing some have done is put a flat board with edge against the wall and under the cushions to add a "lounge" capability. I think ETI would make a cushion to fit (if asked)(and wanted).

We were pleased the top burners on the oven are piezo ignition; the oven still takes a lighter to fire off (great for morning cinnamon rolls and cookies!) I had them install my stereo (with Bluetooth and Sirius XM), speakers, rear view camera, and external cell phone antenna (all shipped direct to ETI.)
How has your stereo worked out? Any suggestions for models to consider?
