I can get around the bike, if I really suck it in, but if I get any bigger, forget it! To add a door there, I would only have to move the wardrobe. I can't believe I just said, "only!" Then where would you put your clothes? Why not add a popup second floor! So, on my wish list I want bigger windows. I like the big window in the smaller Wolf Pup 17 (seriously). I have to stay away from that darn caf-f-f-feine.

Still trying to figure out what drives some of FR's designs
I would like to see it. I visited a 25RR and really don't see much improvement, I think the AC was forward, but it does have a much bigger window passenger side, which I like. Say, have you ever seen a GW with smooth fiberglass sides? I saw one on the road, but wasn't sure if it was a TH or not.

The smooth sides was an option in 2011 when I first looked at the 19RR.
I dont like the floor plan in the 25's, there is a whole bunch of galley room with a nice big window but otherwise kinda useless space.
Even the mount for the TV is awkward for viewing..........

That was my first impression... wasted space. I think somebody at FR said, "ya'll watch this"; grabbed a big window waiting for a big 5th wheel; cut the hole installed it. Lets call him the window guy. Then the interior guy said, "who put this big window there, nothing will fit around it" but did the best he could, which was basically nothing. Forgive me Lord. If I was so darn smart, why am I sitting here unemployed and "them" guys are working. Say... essness (S 'n S? I just noticed). They are up there building campers making retired-old-fart jokes.

That's true about the wardrobe. I also shimmy behind the bike, walk along the couch, step over the front fender and I'm in. It would just be a lot easier if the door was by the bedroom. I think FR should think about that as an update as well as redesigning the door/ramp for motorcycles. They need more support down the middle of the door and the pitch is too steep for many bikes (mine included). I have a ramp extension on mine but its barely enough.
