Just noticed this, and it may be the best option. (It was posted on my birthday, while I was celebrating on the beachfront with my family at Emerald Isle, NC. )

Another option looks promising, because it uses propane.

Congratulations! I am late to this party since I've been camping but my two dogs and I have used our 17B for approximately 250 nights in the last four years, many of them boon docking. I loaded it with lots of extras since I had no idea what I wanted or needed not having had a trailer before (other than my parents' motorhome as a kid).

I use all my options except one - I ended up buying a grill that I can't find parts to connect to the quick-connect propane so I have a small tank when I use it. I have the bunk bed option which works great for my needs and I have the outdoor shower which I thought would be for the dogs but I end up using it for myself a lot. If you have any questions later, feel free to contact me!

Thanks, Nindy! Not to worry. You're out there having fun, and I'm looking forward to doing the same!

Now wondering just how much power my laptop is going to use up each day as I respond to emails and posts, plan the next trip, and research how to either fix or work around breakdowns. Going to have to get smart about a myriad of things that are well outside my current area of general knowledge. Should have paid more attention to the sciences and less to the arts. Ah, well, here's hoping that, whatever they say about teaching old dogs new tricks, I'll master enough to finally understand how everything in the electrical system works together to keep me going - battery, solar, inverter, etc. Don't want to burn out my battery before I've barely begun! And, of course, there's the plumbing. God forbid I neglect that!


One day at a time Ö.

Happy travels!
Ava

Having had my older 17B for 2 yrs with many months living/traveling in it... hereís my 2 cents worth. I like the idea of the the ĎUí seating you propose. My trailer came with the custom single mattress for the front dinette/bed. Itís perfect! Comfy and still have table option. Iím 5í 10.
Size is great for 1 person and easy to park, tow, and no WDH needed with my Jeep Cherokee.
Have fun.

Thanks! I decided to keep the 2-person dinette but will make it a semi-permanent bed with a mattress my back can tolerate.

Continued happy travels!
