This is our 3rd travel trailer but first with the smooth front surface and no windows (reinforcements around the window frame buys a lot of stiffness I think) so we’ll just keep on trucking and see what happens down the road.
Same here. I'm keeping an eye on the caulking just to the edges of where it is pushing in on the corners. It would seem that area might have more movement impacting caulk adhesion. So, I'm watching that. And, How have your "graphics" decals held up. Ours aren't doing too well, I will have an Apen Tral here soon... We also love the floor plan. She had her list of "requirements" and I had mine. My core was length. Hers was the private bedroom and "full" bunks. The outdoor kitchen was not required but we both wanted. This is, I believe the shortest meeting all those requirements by about a foot. She had been talking about a fifth wheel and I didn't want one. After 18 days in it she has now said this seems to meet her needs as it checks all her boxes. We love it.
I did put a new "suspension" (Road Armor) on mine as I drive quite a few national forest miles hitting some "hidden gems" Nat Forest campgrounds here in MT. It's nice but not inexpensive, but the inside sure shows it after a drive with everything still where it should be. There are decent less expensive ones. They supposedly result in less wear and tear on the "structure" over time. If you drive nothing but highway, no need really.
And how do you like all the access under the sink...you can't get to? I did another post where I put a door in on the backside of the sink. https://www.dutchmenowners.org/forum...mods-9040.html
IT was very easy with no cutting except the door itself as the "luan" panel pops off. It has been a godsend for storage.
