More importantly standing at the stove and then trying to open the fridge with the floor all the way out to the edge of the dinette would be awkward and I remember ChrisR speaking to this ....had to bring this link up for those who missed it. Love that curve but that is for those much more skilled

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
How Reace explained it to me when I was out there on Feb 29, was that the point above the side moulding, in the 19 where the bed height would be, would be the same, and it would got straight up and down from there. Not sure what is gained destance wise at the top, but at the bottom there is 2" on each side, so I imagine with the bathroom moulds, you will have the same elbow room, but 2" more foot room.

Any loss of space for the recessed awning is somewhat moot, as it is up so high, it is highly unlikey you will store much up there.

I agree that the new changes are definitely for the best. I know Reace was quite excited for them this past year too, which definitely leads to my confidence in their merit.
