emptynesters

we purchase our new jayfeather 228 two weeks aqo. It was a toss up between the 221 and 228. We decided on the 228 because i found the dinnette in the 221 was cramped due to my size 6' 4".We are also having a skylight put in the shower area. Ours was built sept 2011 so i guess thats why we don't have the skylight. We also figured the bunks might come in handy for storage and better resale not to mention we just found out we will be first time grandparents. We are picking up our trailer in mid april and hope to get needed advise from the forum. its all new to us. Sorry i ment to put this in the official jayfeather 228 spot.
