I am probably going out to ours tomorrow and can measure. I think it is double, but one of the corners is cut off at an angle. Any other measurements you need? We have a 2018 also.

To answer some of your questions. We purchased second hand in September and have about 10 nights in this trailer. We use it about once a month:

--We tow with a weight distribution hitch. When we purchased this trailer, the hitch and bars came with it (bought directly from owner). We did have the dealer/service department we use check/set up the hitch for us after we picked up the trailer.

--We don't use a swivel mount for the TVs. The TV mount that was in place in the living area is the 4 x 4 inch plastic plate. Both parts are 4 x 4. The TV in the bedroom required a 4 x 8 male bracket. Wall bracket that we installed in bedroom is 4 x 4. We purchased extra brackets (male and female) from dealer parts department.

We put the TV in the living area on the mantle (we use it with the base installed). We hung it, but that made the top of the mantle unusable. We lay the TV on the bed while towing. We mounted a small TV/DVD built in on the wall of the bedroom.

--Mods: We had a topper installed on the slide by our service department. Also had them install a battery cut off switch. We are planning to replace the two puck lights above the head of the bed with dimmable reading lights. Magnetic, rechargeable motion sensor bar lights are nice under the shelves in the pantry; above the shelf under the TV; one under cabinet in the bathroom.

--Hacks: Most of the interior storage is in the pantry and under the dinette benches. I use adjustable lid racks to hold pots/pans vertically in the pantry. I added shelves and bins to keep things organized and in place. I use spring tension curtain rods to hold stuff in place while towing. We have had condensation on windows this winter. I did buy a small dehumidifier that we run while camping.

This so so awesome. Thank you. Didn’t know those toppers existed. But makes total sense. We had a smaller trailer before. So we are seriously upgrading hahah. We bought it yesterday. We pick it up next sat! Very excited. That’s so smart about tension rods. We were thinking buckets too!

So here are the bottom bunk measurements. Starting with the window (outside) wall, moving clockwise along the edges: Long edge, outside wall-about 73" (tape measure was only 6 foot); short foot wall (perpendicular to side wall)-30"; angle cut-27.5"; short wall, parallel to side wall-53"; top wall (back wall of trailer)-50".

I have another question for ya! Lol. Do you de winterize ur own trailer ??? I use to do my old one. And my valves to route water to hot water tank was under the bench. In our trailer it’s in the storage area at the front. How do you access that valve? Is there a way to access the valve from inside??? Do I have to crawl in that storage area??? I hate paying 100$ for someone to switch two valves and run some water hahaha.

We sort of winterize the Cherokee: drain the water heater and low point drains; ensure the fresh water tank is drained. If we were to have really cold temperatures forecast for extended time, we would do the antifreeze. We live in north Atlanta metro area.

Our Rockwood had easy access to the pump and a separate port for antifreeze. Water heater bypass was also easy to get to from inside the bathroom (remove one panel). We did do antifreeze in the system a couple of winters because it was pretty easy to do.

We have not tried to access the water heater valves yet.

Look under the mattress at the head of bed driver side. My 2021 has a hole cut for accessing water heater and water pump valves.
