A trailer for the rest of us

Im posting this here as the new 21 has got some great thinking and talking started.
My goal is a trailer under or at 3000lb with a full size bed. Could this be made using the 17 ft without bath model, making the rear dinette a 2 person, moving the kitchen to the passenger side, then adding bath and frig on drivers side? Basically a mini 19 without the wardrobe. You would have under bed storage and a very close to full size perment bed in the front.
Just thinking inside the box, as 2 people with dog who thinks there is a place for a small light easy to pull trailer.

Re: A trailer for the rest of us

Hi: dave1...Certain items can't be moved...they're part of the mold. The wheel wells and the door/window placement are set in fiberglass so to speak. The kitchen must go over one wheel and the fridge over the other. After that anything is possible...just ask Reace. Alf

Somethings can't be swapped from one side to the other... because of the door. There isn't sufficient "wall" space.

I was wondering if instead of the mini dinette at the front in the 15 plan A,
bunk beds could be put in. I saw something like that in another brand, and thought the bunks were ally cool : potential storage when not in use, then sleeping for 2 adults in case of unexpected adult kids dropping in for example.
