Thank you everyone for the encouraging comments. I'm a retired engineer so technical stuff like electrical, etc. are easy to decide - colors and patterns, not so much.

I feel much better about our choices thanks to all of you.

Sounds like my husband, except for the retired (not quite yet) part.

He made an easy decision about the custom flooring, counter top and fabric. He let ME make those decisions! Although I'd drag him along to help decide, we both knew it was entirely my decision. I did let him think he had a bit of a hand in it by turning down some formica choices. I had already decided I didn't want them, but don't let him know that! HA!

That's what's so great about these trailers. If you want to pay the extra bucks, you can get what you want and be quite happy with it for many years to come (hopefully).

Now to wait until it's ready. BTW, we're getting black formica as well.

I love your countertop! What is the name or number?

We have the stock fabric for upholstery and love the combo.

We have couple more pictures of the interior in our album if you are interested. These pictures were taken on an early spring, overcast day:
Your dinette in the background of this picture also looks interesting. Can you tell us how it is mounted?
