Those are great pictures David -- it was a section of the Forum that I had overlooked. And I can see how the buffet would serve the purpose of handing food back and forth from the trailer to outside. It actually might be better than having the kitchen area adjacent to the door because it is a whole other space to put things.. I don't think that having a smaller trailer will be a problem for us because when we last used our trailer there were 2 adults, five kids and 2 cats living in it for three months at a stretch. After that a 19' or a 5.0 for two adults will seem spacious. When we had the whole family, we didn't spend much time inside the trailer.
I just want to figure out the best way to utilize that dinette space.
