Charlie, I'm thinking you'll need to revise your measurements slightly for the 2017 models, since there's less curve to the outer walls.

I wonder if those measurements should be metric, not imperial. Made in Canada, eh!!
Sorry, couldn't resist the opportunity.

Tammy did say there would be a bit more room in the cabinets but not much. When the 21' is completed and ready for viewing, I plan to go up there and take wads of measurements (and photos, of course!). I could do it with the 19 as well, when it's ready for viewing, if folks want that. I'll post both bits of info here on a different thread, when the time comes.

Probably not much more depth horizontally as the size they use now results in 4 strips cut from a 4x8 standard sheet of wood; less the kerf cuts. Any wider and their cabinet makers would be wasting wood.

I watercolor in my 19 - you can fit small sketchbooks, paint etc in the upper cabinets, but for paper, gator board supports etc, I use the wardrobe or the storage under the bed or dinette. Even my travel easel fits nicely.

Most of the change in shell shape is not so much a replacement of curves with straight lines, but a removal of slope in the sides in favour of straight up and down - the areas with windows and lower access doors (much of the wall height for most of the length) are still flat and all the corners are still curved. That does affect cabinets - the further you are from the seam, the greater the difference. How much difference? Well, at the bottom of the body the wheels (and frame to match) are moved four inches further apart:

The change in interior width - perhaps all found in the cabinets rather than the passageway between them - should be a similar dimension (4" total of both sides).
