Which Floorplan is best?

We currently have a 2010 17z which we bought used on Craigslist last year. We have 2 boys 5 and 6. I would just like a little more room. My husband would like a model with the door on right side or middle, but we don't want a table to climb over to get into bed. Looking at the 20e or 18d or 19h? Any suggestions. We also noticed that the new models have a shallow tub, don't think I like that; too much splash on floor?? We don't mind having a single door frig. I actually think I like it better, more room in frig then and we don't need to freeze much?? I am also not liking the Chocolate color interior, I do like the Copper though, hard to find though. Any thoughts on awnings?? My husband would like a manual over electric due to having to bring it in if stormy and we have patio lights on it. Also, my husband is worried about having a slide because of malfunction and water damage????

Don't need a double sink, like more counter space. I like the 19h because of the drawer space included. Even looking at Rockwood Roo's but their beds are not as comfortable and have springs in mattresses. Rockwood is nice though especially the 21ss and has ducted air. Any advice on ducted air, does this work nice and fast cooling especially for bed around corner in back?????

Looked at the Palomino Stampede, nice but beds are bad I thought. Memory foam goes down to the boards when lying on it.

I am very picky I know, but want to make the right choice or we just keep what we have.

Counter space on the 20e is not very good which is the reason we moved up to the 23b. Sounds like a 19 or and 18 is what you want. But all the stuff you said you don't want is what we wanted. Slides add a lot more interior space. We don't spend much time inside, but with two adults and two boys, it really helps. I like the electric awning - so easy to put in and out. You should be putting manuals away in a storm anyway.

Well, what are you using to tow your current camper? Have you looked at something like an x23f? That would give you 3 bunks which would give each kid their own bed.

we have a 2009 silverado V8 which could pull anything but we don't want anything longer than a 21' closed length even though we do have a long driveway to store. I also recently read a complaint about the a/c not reaching back bed on the 23 model??

Anybody have any comments on the Rockwood Roo's new bunk end attachment. We looked at one yesterday and it's just glued in the corner sloppily with skirted edge to catch rain and rivets on the sides. I would think letting the rain gravitate down over would be better. Don't know but doesn't look good.

We have the 19h and like it alot. two adults, two boys and the dog . A/C works good, reaches both ends. It has the couch and booth dinette, no crawling over. Electric awning is great, no going out in the storm to lower or roll up, just push a button. And to increase counter space, I made a piece of counter top that sits on the stove top and is held there by the grate. That gives us all the room we need. We started to look at the 17', but forgot about it quickly when we stepped foot in the 19H.

I have a 19h as well and love it although I have a manual awning.
