I think I just found my next purchase, wish list would be an optional double sink, a compartment that would fit a Honda 2000 generator with a transfer switch, 30LB propane tanks, a 2 door fridge/freeze and ducted heating.

You asked for it Doug and Eileen... and they kinda make it. It's called an Oliver... but add approx. 15-20 THOUSAND to the purchase price over a similarly sized Escape. Oliver is building a 22' trailer with most of those things. It looks like a Casita... stretched and the entire interior is gel coat. Kinda like living/sleeping inside a refrigerator

...and looks like a hospital on the inside, what with the stark white interior.
A well build, albeit very pricey, trailer though.

Reace, another wee thought, and maybe it is just this modified image of the trailer, but could the awning be a couple feet longer, extending the support right to the rear. This would allowing for a larger access hatch on the curb dinette side. Just a thought.

I really gotta quit looking at this, our 19 does work quite well for us.

Jim, I thought the same thing.. then I remembered, that "first" trailer was a prototype. When I saw that at Bandon... hummm, no one would want an awning leg right blocking a window... I supposing they slapped on a 19' awning. After all, Reace and Tammy and the girls left Bandon for an extended vacation in that "brand new 21' " trailer to check out everything. Since they were headed for Death Valley (in July ) they had to have shade... even if it was short.

Checking the specs... the difference in the length between the 19' and the 21' awning is 12'-3" for the 19' vs 13'-5" 21'

I'm thinking everything is just as buyers would expect.

I love the new layout, but we had a garage built for our current 5.0 with no extra room for anything bigger. Too bad, it sure looks like a winner.

Jim, I own a Ford F-150 with a Triton V8. LOVE my truck. It's getting a bit long in the tooth. But I figure GO BIG or stay home Actually a new truck is in my future too... sigh.

One of my favorite bumper stickers is:

"Spend your childrens inheritance. You will enjoy it more than they will."

My child... are you listening

I already set up some college funding for my grand children, so I'm footloose and fancy free to spend my inheritance as a retiree.........

You have been pining for some time now, and with these new improvements, it might be time to act. You deserve to get yourself one, and you know it.

That is SO me too, Donna. Worst case scenario has me working just over 4 more years. If I take good advantage of the current economical boom, it should help the retirement fund enough.

Donna, you make me laugh so much!

After talking so much about the new 5er, I now get the rolling eyes :,so I got the hint.
I wait til I'm alone to go over options lists, look at fabric and just stare at the floor plan , starting to feel like a criminal!

I know Vicki... I'm pathetic : Going through my budget to see what I can possibly cut out to save money. Let's see, I drink A LOT of coffee. Not that boutique stuff unless someone gives me a gift card, but the home brewed stuff. BUT... if I cut that by half, in a year I'd probably save enough to buy those cool aluminum rims for that new snazzy 5er.

YEAH Jim... I DO deserve it... now I just have to convince the CFO that I should have it (I'm the CFO )

I remember Alf when you bought it and I though HECK he beat me to it! And you sold the Tours Light and, and, and. Time moves along.

I still have one rod in the body shop, two in the garage and one under the carport. I'm a vehicle hoarder...

Shoot, we're all talking about a trailer that's only on paper right now! I have plenty of time to win the lottery

Hi: Donna D... Before you know it it'll be off the paper and in the mold. Why I bet there's a line forming to grab your Scamp already. I think I just might be tempted to go bigger or go HOME!!! Alf

Hi: Donna D... I'm so lucky to be half of a balanced couple. She's the saver and already re tired, and back to work again. I'm the spender and 3 mo's. from re tiring. The lucky part is my Co. uses electronic banking which I know nothing about!!!
Why... I probably have enough $$$'s to get a new 5er and don't even know it. Alf
