All floor bench seats front and back have upper and lower vents. (Eg. Top right, bottom left). This helps move air around electronics to keep them cool (very important with inverter etc.) and to minimize trapped moisture which is inevitable.

4 months almost to the day that we picked up our trailer.
I am sleeping in it for my first time - in my driveway! - at my cottage!!
I think I am 10 years old again. Lights are on in the driveway- just in case....
Still smells new.
Dog thinks we are crazy, won't settle.
Wife is a trooper - I'm sure she would rather be in the cottage in a normal bed. She smiles, fainltly.
I am lucky.

There's an entire Facebook group called "Camping @ Home" that's dedicated to staycations. Hey, if you can't get out.. you can still enjoy! Once the blinds are down, your imagination can take you to any camping site.

For those who may have forgotten, our 19 was build last month, and, according to Reace, may be the most optioned out trailer he has done to date....(Not Her fault - mine).

Here are a few things that some of you might find helpful to see if you are considering your build list.

U-Shaped Rear Dinette. Extra drawer below wardrobe. Mid-sized 3 way fridge. Custom Fabric & Countertops. Microwave.

Full 3 burner Stove & Oven. Extra flip out shelf (3 in total). Stainless exhaust hood and sink / faucets. 2 way hot water. Front power plug ( split shore / inverter).

Front bench seat access door. Venting of storage bench ( all).

Extra tail-lights (high). Twin 55 watt backup floods. HDTV / UHF antenna. Rear hitch.
More pictures when you have time!!! Our 19 has Oct. 1 comp. date.
U-shape dinette, what made you choose and do you like it?

Esp. pictures of inside showing TV placement and cabinets, storage areas. Your thread & the comments from owners have been so helpful in our thinking through these options for ourselves. I am concerned when you say the larger frig is no longer available.
Have you stowed your "stuff" yet? How is storage working out?

How about Escape making this standard,
Black tank flush, you can scrub down the interior of your holding tank so matter does not cling to the sides.

My homework assignment for the day was to read all 16 pages of this great build thread. Currently tent camping at the Californis Bluegrass Association's music workshop week, wife playing/learning and me slumming. (Nevada County Fairgrounds, Grass Valley, CA).

Lots of really good insight, idea sharing and stories throughout the thread. I don't know that I'll ever have to haul a moose out of the woods, but I appreciated every contribution and consideration. We're still in the planning/shopping phase and it helps to see how others have approached similar issues.

Mostly paying attention to all the options/items that can be done without.
