Couple more shots, with the screen room attached.
Awning is neutral grey ( see the part hanging down at the front ). Screen room is white vinyl and grey mesh.

Tom and Cheryl I do like that blue! I can see why you'd want the awning to match. and thanks for the additional details.

Jim it's tempting to change dates and actually have the trailer, but our present plan is to drive out to Chilliwack in June -- we would go to Montana anyway to see our son -- pick up the trailer and spend time out there before coming back. And we're not ready to confirm the build list. But it is tempting.

NIce looking dog Glenn -- I think I can live with that awning color. And that's the first headon picture of the screen tent I've seen. My final decision on that is to not get it and maybe buy a free standing one. But then I waiver. It will be good when the build sheet is finalized!

Our awning is a light beige in the front and lighter on top.

That's a better picture and ours is the same. Oh yeah, our campers were built side by side.

The option list in 2010 was limited compared to 2014. I had trouble with the power cut off switch as to where it was placed under the dinette. Legs sometimes turned it off without us knowing. The Power panel was another problem your leg would tap it and the door opened. I finally used a magnet for a catch. I had a handle bar added in the bathroom. I did order a light over the front box and the service side of the trailer. That idea came from Bigfoot. The remote propane valve was only used once, the flow was slow and it took forever to cook anything. Not an option I would order again. If the new option list has a power bathroom fan it is a nice thing to have.

See trials: So far --am liking all my add-on option choices. No regrets, no shudda done-its, not yet anyway. (OK, the microwave was maybe un-necessary, but…) Glad for the one extra window, the extra insulation, the dual 6-volt batteries, 2-burner stove, standard fridge, and the no air conditioner, no big storage box, decisions. Love our custom fabric choice.

The following issues will likely require attention:
  • Need a hook hanging over both sides of the bathroom door. Towels on the inside, clothing, garbage bags on the outside.
  • A way to hang a clothesline without drilling holes.
  • A way to make sitting up against the wall while in bed more comfortable. The window shade’s plastic spool digs into my back and I just know one day I will lean too hard and bend or break that thing.
  • Long skinny shelves about 3 inches deep around the bed head area, for quick and easy storage of eyeglasses, a book, coffee cups, ball point pens, a portable radio, etc. I likely will address this while simultaneously fixing number 3 above.
  • A soft, low-key, night light placed maybe underneath the range hood for midnight pit stops. I like the red lighting you see in submarine movies. Lets you see just enough to get around without disturbing others.
  • An on/off battery controller switch under dinette that is not so easily switched by mistake. A more aggressive dinette table slider locking mechanism.
  • A fridge thermometer, and a ten inch fry pan that fits nice and flat in the storage bin under the fridge. A flexible funnel for manually filling holding tank water.
  • A bigger-surfaced step, out the door. Ballerinas might love it but I found that fold-out step way small for a clumsy bigfoot like me.

To get you started: Interlocking Mesh Drawer Organizers | Kitchen Drawer Organization | Rubbermaid

We use these. They hook on to the the window frame in our 17B. I don't think they work on some of the new windows being used now, but you may find a way to make them work for you. Cheap, light weight and multiple sizes.
