Sadly I have no more pictures at the present. Was so busy today and forgot my phone.
We love all the storage areas in the trailer. The pantry is very large and there are several overhead cabinets that are great spaces. The island is large and has four very large drawers and of course the under sink area. There are drawers and cabinets all over.
The only drawback which is not actually a drawback for us is there isn't a huge amount of counter space. The table has two fold down leaves and the top also hinges up and there is storage area under it. The dining set usually come with two straight back chairs and two folding chairs. We hated the folding chairs and found them uncomfortable. When we ordered the unit we ordered it with four of the straight back and it was a great choice for us. They are comfortable and they actually match. The folding chairs were shorter at the back and we just didn't like them.
We travel with another couple and they will be staying in the bunkroom just off the kitchen. Very nice space with actual sliding doors that can close. It has a sofa that pulls out to a decent bed with a bunk over it. I took the bunk out as it will never be used and it really opened the room up.
Our bedroom is very cozy. I installed our sleep number bed today and it's super comfortable. Bathroom is nice. We have no issues with it. Large linen closet.
There are tons of windows with the rolling shades. I always hated those shades with the strings. Cant remember what they are called. Too much of a hassle.
Large basement area that has plenty of storage. I've also got the outside sink and small refrigerator in it's only compartment. I put my coffee maker in there as I always get up early and have coffee outside when we are camping.
We're stoked. We really love the trailer. I checked all the systems and had no problems. The PDI went well. The technician answered my questions and was very informative. All in all a good experience.
Will be taking it out in two weeks for a short little test trip before out big trip in May.
