Surprised by the changeover to the swing down galley. That must make it impossible to load the fridge, or even the floor area, with the top down? Access was great with the side flip.
The swing down galley does take up floor space, no doubt. However, the microwave and plate/dish/cutlery box fit under the main table with some room to spare. There is still 16" between the front of the galley and the cupboard door (our large Coleman cooler fits that area fine. The BAL leveler fits under the 2nd dinette along with the BBQ that came with the unit. Plus another 18"x26" in the entry for a 2nd propane tank and misc. Our 4 folding chairs fit on the cushions. Cooking gear, tools, misc gear, pillows, sleeping bags, etc all fit nicely under the seating storage areas.
Compare to the 8' trailer we had previously, this has loads of room.
Looking for a set of crossbars and 2 bike racks for the roof as this model has the channels already built-in.
