We have a SMEV 2-burner flush mount with glass top. We have it shipped to ETI for installation. I'd love to have the flush mount sink as well but we run out of counter top space in the 17".

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:
what is the black thing below your stove?

Really? Is it possible that ETI has different covers to match the interior?

I think the furnace covers are all the same color. I spray painted mine when I changed out my refer panel.

A new-enough trailer (of any model) might have the new model furnace (Atwood AFSAD12), which has a different grill from the original (Atwood 8012). In most models (including the 17) the new furnace is in the same place as the original.

Furnace change topic: Furnace change on Escape 21 a shocker

Trailer: building 2015 17B for December

Thanks for the advice Karen. I am ordering a 17B for Dec 2016. Didn't think I cared about the interior but really like the dark counters with SS. Just ordered samples from Formica. The -58 code ETI installs seems to be all matte finish. Will the matte be okay? several people mentioned radiance in their posts.

rvbill.... We got a black radiance -think it's called Mineral Jet - love it. We are just coming home on our maiden voyage....picked up our Casa Blanca on Sept 8th... I don't think you would be disappointed with the radiance finish!
Good luck with whatever you choose!!
