Planned modifications to BlackJack….

Made or rather performed my first modification to Blackjack, replaced the incandescent bulb in the stove overhead with a led wedge bulb I had on hand. Now I'm 100% LED in and out.

It's about time Jim BlackJack has been in your possession for more than 48 hours. What's with the 'foot dragging'? :

Shoot, I'm still waiting to hear about the two unplanned changes that ETI did to your trailer Jim! I may want to add them to my build sheet

How do you like the big Blackjack after owning a 19ft?

It's amazing what 8" in width and 16" in length can do. It feels so much more spacious and I love the "U" shaped dinette in the rear with the panorama view. The counter and storage space is a lot more than what these 8x16" open up. It is just a better and more efficient layout, IMHO. It is nice being able to sit on the bed corner and put your shoes on, something the 19' did not allow one to do.

size of 21

Jim the 8" width increase is of course a inside measurement as the outside is 4" wider. Years ago looking at RV's we always told sales people that we wanted one
40' long inside and 20' long outside to keep both of us happy.
I believe our 21 is just about finished and ready to go, I have registered for the Bluebonnet Rally, (thanks Donna D. for the heads up).
