Good idea. That was our thinking the few times we evacuated south Louisiana. Ended up living in our old TT in our driveway for many weeks after Katrina while I rebuilt my house.

I've got a 2016 21DS and it has a shower curtain. I prefer it to the enclosure because of weight savings plus the curtain provides a little more "openness" in the bathroom. $.02

the new enclosure looks nice, and should eliminate water getting on the floor,......but I didn't mind the curtain or the small shower, but DW(99# soaking wet) never had enough room in the shower,....go figure,.........................

I did read about the water leakage issue with the shower curtain on the previous models, but I have mixed emotions about the doors on my 2017. I like the idea of fewer leakage issues and the DW does appreciate the classier look, but I'm more weight conscious than an Olsen twin right now considering my truck. I guess that means the 12 pack will have to wait until I get to the campsite!
Thanks again for the input.

Good eyes! Actually, I was getting ready to back the trailer up into my driveway so I had already removed the bars from the Equalizer WDH before I took the photo (note the concrete block under the tongue jack in my original pic). The rear end sagged considerably without the bars in place, I barely cleared the curb getting up into the driveway. I'll never tow without my WDH in place!

Looks great! Re the skylights-- we bought one of those insulated foil-backed cushions that fit snugly in the skylight over our bed. Camco part 45192. Now we can sleep past sunrise! Easy to use and store, about $10.

So far I love this trailer. My dedicated 30A circuit means I can work in air conditioned comfort while parked in my driveway, at least for now. I already did some of the easy stuff, like bathroom towel hooks, but my first big challenge is replacing the unimpressive mount for the little TV (the Furrion, not my Frontier!). Not only do I want a slightly larger screen and more capability like a Roku, but I'd really like a mount that swivels away from the wall and clears the shelf that partially blocks the TV in the current setup. Right now the TV is too close to the wall for good viewing.
I still want to be able to utilize the outside mount, so I'll have to get creative and kludge something together using my original bracket with a good aftermarket telescoping mount. Has anyone had any luck in this department?
Thanks again for all your encouraging comments.

Thank you! Yet another addition to my Amazon queue. I need to buy stock in Camco...
