It is looking really good.

As for leg room, close is okay, and I don't mind a good game of footsie now and then.

Thanks everyone - I obsessed about the upholstery and colors but we love it. The blue counter and table are really navy - the flash makes it look more royal blue but in real life its much more toned down (the last pic without the flash is closer to real life).

CP I asked that they delete the metal stove cover. I had seen the cutting board stove cover at Camping World. It's made to fit the stove top and stays in place during travel (it has rubber feet that fit over the grate). Also - one or two can take the table down

We can easily seat 4 - maybe more and we can put our feet up too (we're not super tall tho') There are pros and cons to both. We are very happy with it.

Kathie

PS I made the big pillows. If anyone's getting the 21 with the standard dinette I highly recommend them. They are 20 inch forms and I cut the fabric at 19 1/2 with 1/2 inch seams.

Puts Dave on the "Not To Play Cards With" list.

Jim, what do you mean by travel mode? This may need to start a new thread.

Wow, that kitchen is amazing. And I love your choice of colors and fabrics. It looks very comfortable and soothing to the eye. And the colors blend well with the window shades. I hope you have many happy travels with your new trailer.

Love the fabric. It has an elegant quality. We've decided to not customize the fabric and counter top. The standard fabric etc look okay, and there is already a bit of sticker shock with the options we've chosen.

I can honestly say that pictures on the WWW don't show the true nature of these trailers. I spent several hours in Dave&Kathie's 21' on Sunday and it looks more elegant than these pictures show. The Formica changes color in the light. When Kathie originally showed me a 2"x3" piece, it almost looked black. So, depending on outside light and lights turned on, the look changes. How neat is THAT!

I found it was safer to tow with the table down, mine came off the legs on one trip, did some minor damage.

Neal and Sharon, I thoroughly understand . My build sheet has changed so many times, I think I'm on revision 59. I've decided to look at the items I can add in the future... fabric is one to be considered... along with solar, etc. (Getting it wired tho!). I've mentioned before that I thought Tammy and Reace have chosen well when it comes to the "default" soft items. Besides you can personalize your trailer with throw rugs, pillows, etc.

Our thoughts as well. We've already been thinking about throw pillows etc. and have purchased a couple of "area" rugs to cut down on tracked in dirt.

Surprisingly, all these decisions are kinda fun; not nearly as stressful as I first thought.
