Only one window, in the bedroom, on the driver's side. No cross ventilation in the living area and could be dark inside. Nice big bathroom.

Hmm...I count 5 windows.
Maybe just me, but I would prefer not to have the galley in a slide.
Nice big bath.
I wonder how you keep pets in a drawer. Mine wouldn’t like it.

We want a couples trailer with a dinette on the door side to watch over the animals...
Why would anyone want to sit and look out at their neighbors camp site with most couch/dinette slides???

Why would you want a bath at one end and the bed at the other? Will you have blinds over all the windows, or just streak?

We spend the majority of our time outside and stay in campgrounds with more privacy than most, so the view from inside really doesn’t matter.
Is the linen closet easily accessible with the head in front of it?
Our bath and bed are at opposite ends and we like it that way.
OK, so is the pet drawer for food and water?

You use bathrooms for more than just bathing. Kind of nice that those associated noises and smells are that far from the bedroom. The big bathroom is a major selling point to me.

I don't mind streaking. [emoticon]

They are my favorite wood constructed trailer, but I've seen several with really poor workmanship.

Grand Design has really done some cool stuff and has influenced the industry in a positive way in my opinion, but their quality is not always that great the last few years.

Pay close attention, especially to leak prone areas, and be proactive about preventive maintenance.

nice to have bath close to door so when your outside you don't track all the way through the trailer. but, I'm also one for not having any utilities in a slideout. the kitchen counter looks to be a nice size, wish i had that in mine. i also like the fact that there is no slides on curbside so you can enjoy the awning.
