Would like to view 17B with gaucho in Midwest

Good morning fiberglass friends,
We are working on our options and need to make a decision on the gaucho beds. We have seen the pictures, video as well as read the threads and feel that we only decide if we try it out. The downsides seem to be claustrophobia and getting in/out of the top bunk. We are 65 and average size. Tha upside is that the rear dinette would then be available for our inevitable collection of stuff. Will call ETI to see if they have a lead, but thought I would post here as well. We are in southern Wisconsin, near Madison.
Thanks for any help
Tony and Darlene

Hi Tony,
I see you have the 17B now.
Did you get the gaucho bunk, and if so, how do you like using it? Did you need to add extra cushions to the standard cushions?

Radar 1,
We ultimately got the regular layout. Never did see the gaucho layout before we decided, but did at a rally last year. DW was correct that the bunks would be claustrophobic and there is the issue of figuring out how to get up there.

Thanks Tony,
I was looking at all options for using the 17B but I think we will just get the 19, I'm afraid I would get the 17 and then get the dreaded "2 foot-itis".
