No one has one of the new 5.0's yet to give verified measurements, it's 20'2" including the bumper. If someone with a 21 knows how far the bumper on theirs hangs out you can deduct that from the 20'2" to get a pretty good guess.

If you mean the small counter to the front of the door, I was wondering the same thing. it's on the print as "drawers", may or may not be finished in the photo Reace posted so I figured I'd wait for the next set of pics before asking.

I superimposed these for equal trailer width and length of the beds, before putting them side by side in the picture. The originals were probably not drawn exactly to scale to begin with, but gives an idea of the comparable lengths.

This thing looks amazing! Can't wait to see one in person, hopefully at the rally.

Measuring from the just above the belly ring to the outside of the tire on the 21 is about 10".

The 19' body length is/was 15.75 feet and the 21' is 18" longer, so 17.25 is my number. Thus the new 5th should be 18" longer or 19' body length. That is my calculation.

Good morning

The short cabinet on the front side of the door will have one drawer. We planned for more but the stairs have become an issue. The lower section will have an exterior access hatch.

The old 5.0 had a similar overhead at the kitchen. Same principle for the overheads in the upper bunk.

I will post an overall length later today. The body is exactly 20'. On the new unit, the pin box is pushed forward 6" for better turning radius.

#3 comes out of the mold today! woot woot!!

British mostly, but that would be our prime heritage. I know lots of folk around here that use it. Great word to describe excitement, eh?

The roofline slopes down from a peak over the bunk area, so the available height to the roof depends on where you are along the trailer, which is presumably why...

I had to ask questions about local phrasing here in Washington when I moved from Arizona. Makes life interesting.
