You're welcome! Did you see the entire thread I posted with photos of that demo trailer? If not, here's the link:

New 2017 17' Trailer - interior and exterior photos

You're on your own for wrestling over bed space with your tiny little doggie. My kitties are smaller, but they still manage to hog more than their share of the bed.

I'd also ask them which orientation is standard. Normally, what's shown in the photos is the rotated position, so I was rather surprised to see that in the demo trailer.

I have a 17B to enter production soon. On the 17B at least, I think the rotated 90-degree stove is now the standard position. My final build sheet eliminated the $50 option for rotating the stove, as ETI said it was now the default to position the stove as in Laura's photos.

Again, I am just talking about the 17 foot, 2017 model.

Looking at the pic of the two-burner rotated, with the cover and wing open, it appears you gain a narrow strip of counter space between the sink and the stove. You lose access to the space along the outside wall and the side wall ( where I keep my knives ). Also consider the same set-up with the sink cover removed ( for rinsing veg or whatever ).
If it costs nothing to rotate the stove, I still think the normal orientation is better.

I think that's just it -- the new "normal" orientation is rotated 90 degrees on the 17, according to the photos of the demo trailer. You'd have to specify mounting it side by side now in a 17.

I actually find the top of the wardrobe convenient for some kitchen prep, as long as I haven't covered it with other stuff. I like the height for mincing garlic.

It's settled then. I'd get a 19'.

Well it's 2 doggies but thinking the front side dinette may work. Laura I look at those pics several times per week. You have no idea how helpful you have been. Thanks so much.
