21' ?s

Does the 21' come with a shelf over the bed and two LED reading lights; in addition, is there a door to area underneath the bed as a standard or option? First of many ?s prior to completion of build sheet finalization. Thanks in advance for responses and your patience.

Yes on shelf (if no front window) and lights. Standard door under the bed is on the long side of the pedestal, aimed down the aisle.

I don't see one being nicer than the other Jim. Yours looks great to me. I didn't line mine with anything. What you see is the vinyl padding. All I did was put a floor in it to cover up the cut edges of the vinyl. Hope the vinyl holds up OK? I also ordered some edge molding, U-channel I think it's called. It should be here soon. I plan on applying it to all the new cutouts for the new cubbies.

Yes, I got some of that last year at Osoyoos from ETI to cover all the cubby edges.

Yeah, I figured I'd need cataract surgery sooner or later. My mom had to have it years ago, and like me she was blue-eyed and spent decades outside in the Florida sun.

But I understand that the FDA is about to approve a replacement lens that magnifies, like The Six Million Dollar Man. I'll hold out for one of those if I can. Then I can enjoy Pensacola Beach even more.

They have been doing lens replacement (as for cataract treatment) for correcting vision for a few years now.

A lot of the far sightedness that comes with age comes about because the natural lens stiffens with age.

I'm guessing it's just a matter of a few more years before the artificial lenses they use for lens replacement are flexble enough that you will regain a lot of your youthful ability to focus closely, while at the same time getting your myopia corrected.

When that day comes, you'll find me in line at the opthamologists office...

Thanks to all. TAFraser and Alf, the pictures really help. I thought the underbed area came already divided - apparently not. Still not sure which door I'll choose, but probably closer to the bathroom due to the added separation between the 2 doors.

I will ask about a standard light under the cabinet above the drawer stack - sounds better than a captains light for that purpose. The outlet beside the bathroom sounds like a good idea too. I don't plan to use a hair dryer (I will be camping right?) but it would be good to have that available just in case (long hair).

As always you all have great input. Especially as someone who has not had a trailer before, I really appreciate it!

That way you can use a night light at night time there and later install a built in electric heater that keeps your bath warm and toasty. See post #66 here Planned modifications to BlackJack….
I saw Jim's trailer and really liked the added heater. I ordered the extra power outlet so I could add the heater. I was disappointed when I picked up to find the access door next to the bath where I was going to mount the heater. Ended up mounting on the 45 and liked that better anyway.
