One thing though for new folks to watch, wait and consider, is that with the 2017 model, the water heater will not likely need to be tipped for the exterior fact to fit the previous slope of the mould. This will bring the overall height of the seat down a bit. I had discussed this with Reace, but until he gets the new 21 moulds (the same at the rear as the 5.0TA moulds), he won't know just how much height he can save. It still would not hurn to have the converter raised though.
The book does explain a bit about you.
I had a subscription for many years too.
I'm also wondering about all the other dimensional changes above and below the belt line.. With the overall width of the shells remaining constant but straighter walls the top and bottom of the envelope is gaining some useful girth
In our compact interiors sometimes every little bit helps
Im assuming the counter top depth remains the same but the under bench storage will grow quite a bit with useful extra room especially right a floor level. New inner fibreglass moulds for the bathroom should yield us bigger guys more room for our feet and shoulders in there regardless of which way were pointing in the bathroom
The pictures of the raw interior shell show the carveout for the new awning is probably going to reduce the size of the passenger side overhead cabinets a bit but that is offset by the space potentially gained on the drivers side cabinets.
Im loving all the changes to the moulds that Reece has been consistently making through the years as much as the changes to components like windows and doors. Not a revolution but constantly evolving the most fundamental part of our trailers
I can't wait to see what he has in store for 2018 after he and Tammy have all the 2017 changes squared away
