Took delivery of 19' on Oct.17

and diving into set-up and mods.
Very pleased with workmanship!
U-shaped dinette so that with a chair in 'hallway' can place 4 around table.
Added bonus- table is smaller (just two of us to eat at it) and the slide is towards front of trailer, therefore more floor space coming in & out of trailer.
Requested the edges of cabinet & drawer doors be routed. A woodworking detail well worth the addt'l cost.
John in midst of making storage under bed & fitted board across ceiling & attachment for curtaining off bed.
Diane's non-dominent hand in cast due to arthritis surgery, so one handedly lining drawers, cabinets and finishing the board.. Sewing eyelets in curtain. Figuring which storage containers from old 5th wheel work and figuring placement of our stuff.
Just finally figured out putting our pin on map!!!
When it isn't a shambles inside, will try posting photos.

Hopefully tomorrow board over bed for curtain & tub storage under bed completed. Then we can put stuff. Then learning curve on putting photos on Forum starts!

I really like that contrasting trim on the countertop, is that available @ local Home Depot
Good idea on the microwave.

I was disappointed the pretty red trim disappeared on the journey here...... Ha Ha!
Because of larger refrig, micro went under stove (which turned 90') & added drawers (sacrificed one door under sink)

How do you find using a M/W installed that low. I know we have installed a couple directly under countertops in kitchens, as the customer did not want it anywhere else. Some people have reported back that it is a bit tough to read and program things in. Other than that, they do like it out of the way.

John & Diane

Was your trailer delivered with Jim & Kim's from Kentucky? They are friends of ours and I know theirs was on the truck with one going to Michigan.
