I should have archived the ETI website's information about the 15' while it was still posted, but from memory, wouldn't that apply only to the 15B? As Karen has shown there is a front seating/sleeping area in the 15A.

There is an overall weight difference between the 15' and a similarly equipped 17', and (depending on floorplan and other configuration choices) there is also a tongue weight difference. As previously discussed in this forum, that means there are some tow vehicles which - depending on passengers and cargo - may have sufficient capacity for the 15' and not the 17'. Since the differences are small this will be a rare case (apparently rare enough to not continue the 15'), but it happens between any two sizes.

The 15a has dinettes on both end (no bath). The b has one only.

The 15a weighs less than the b by about 250# IIRC (could be off), and both are lighter than the 17, of course, but I don't recall by how much.

Our 15A has a permanent double bed in the back and we use the smaller dinette in the front for eating when not eating outside.
