Congratulations - I'm sure your happy to see it actually coming together!
How long has it been since your trailer entered production? (ETI emailed this morning that our 5.0 just entered production, so I'm wondering when we'll start seeing our build photos)

Got the email stating that it had entered production on 11/3. About the same time differential as when we ordered our 21C. They wait until the floor is in, at least. In this case, they waited until the cabinets were installed.

Love that Maple!

Interesting to see the 'grain' running horizontal on the long kitchen / OH cabinets and bench faces (eliminates taped joints when run vertical more than 4ft wide like in my 5.0 kitchen and OH cabinets)

Why the molded-in front window area? Looks weird.

I don't think that it looks weird and it adds stiffness to an otherwise flat area.

It really looks great...so excited for ours in April.

What countertops did you select?

We selected the same floors with Maple and Silver Quartzite countertops in the Twin Bed version.

Is that the fresh water tank next to the hot water heater in the bench? Looks nice! Thanks!

I agree - I think it looks good. I would have liked to see a window as an option similar to my E19. I like all the natural sunlight I can get!

Knowing Bob (known Bob for about 10 years) I'm guessing he has 4 LiFePO4's.

Are they offering a front-window option? I haven't seen photos with one.

Guessing that the vertical pleats are for longitudinal stiffness.

Oh, Ron already said that.

If I was making an expensive mold, I might want to leave the option open for other floor plans in the future.

Elemental Stone, I think.

And you would be right. It was a, “You can’t take it with you”, decision.
