    Looks great. Particularly like the cushions. Look a lot more comfortable than the ones in ours.

    That is my dream pup right there. Love everything about it; the slide out, the amenities, the exterior color. Looks great.

    Nice looking tent trailer with slide... Looks like alot of room inside... I like the slide out for the dinette and wrap around seating...

    Just curious where you have your HDTV setup for watching...

    This is our floorplan and we use the storage cabinet next to the fold over sink/stove setup for our HDTV. Works out great for us with our wrap around seating... We can swivel the HDTV to watch while laying in the front tent bed if we like... We sleep in the front tent bed area and since there is only the two of us the rear tent bed becomes the day time storage area of items... We usually eat outside sitting around the patio area and the table shown here is lowered and makes up the wrap around seating into a day-bed so to speak... Perfect for the two of us laying in and watching HDTV in the evening hours..

    I love it!!! We have a 2516G, and while I am absolutely in love with our "Rocky", I do like your wrap around dinette more than our standard bench-type slide out dinette. We also have a longer sofa, which I don't find it necessary to have it longer -- I'd prefer to have that extra cabinet that you have instead of a longer sofa! For us, though, we really needed/wanted that extra storage trunk that we have underneath our king size bed and didn't think we'd use the outdoor fridge (we don't even use the indoor fridge, except to store spices, plates, etc) so we went with the 2516G. I really wish we had that dinette you have though!!!!! Wouldn't it be nice to be able "build" your popup to your own specs; ie, "I'd like a 40 inch sofa, an extra cabinet instead of a toilet, etc etc?" Maybe someday! [CC] Enjoy your rig - she's a beaut!!!!!!!

    I am still trying to figure out TV placement. The factory cable line is below the storage to the right of the dinette. The only negative to this is that if you want to sit in the dinette and watch tv. I thinking about moving the line to over across from the stove, but we will see. We have only made one trip with it so I may spend some time in it and see what is best.

    We also went back and forth on the 2716G and the 2516. Our deciding factor was the U-shaped Dinette. With a 8 and 5 year old it gives a little more room for game nights. I do think storage is important but there is a ton of space under the dinette. I do wish we could customize one but this was the closest I could find to what we would build.

    I ran into another problem later on with my tent trailer top will move a good 6-inches in and out when wind is blowing against it. I walked in one time and found my HDTV laying on the floor... Didn't do any damage but could have.... I can stand in my door way and reach up high and push back and forth and have alot of movement so I have to make sure anything I have sitting on the cabinet tops and/or shelving must be better secured to keep from blowing over... It was an easy fix but I could have broke up my HDTV pretty bad with it blowing into the floor area... Later on I did a more permanent fix by adding 1-inch eyelet hardware in all four corners of my trailer roof and now i can run 1/2-inch ratchet web straps down to earth augurs to really stabilize the roof movement. I use four of those 3-inch screw into the ground type earth anchors that leave no marks in the ground when removed...

    My setup works real well for us watching TV as we can sit anywhere in our wrap around seats and get a good view or when we go to bed can rotate the TV around towards the bed and it works out great... Your wrap around seating in the slide doesn't give you much options here it appears...

    I can definitely see going with the "U" shaped dinette - it's pretty sweet! Especially with young'uns. You won't believe this, but usually it's just my husband and I camping (and 2 spoiled pooches), and we STILL don't have enough room for all the crap I bring! [LOL] We've got every single little spot (including our truck) "packed" with gear. Unreal! I think back to the days when we just tented it, and to before that when I backpacked a lot, and I'm not sure how I managed! I'm sure if we get a TT some day, I'll have that filled to the brim as well! :laugh:

    We only used our dinette table one time as an eating table but it was too small to really do anything with and setup out in the precious walk space we have. Now we just leave the dinette table as part of the wrap around seating to make it into a day-bed so to speak. This give us room to use two of those ACTION PACK storage containers (WALMART) and the day-bed is great for setting and also great for stretching out during the evening watching the HDTV setup... There is only the two of us camping and we will eat setting on the day bed inside or outside sitting around the patio area...

    Since there is only the two of us you can see what we do with the tent bed area behind the day-bed. This area becomes our day-time catch all area. We can pull the curtain to keep all of the day-time junk out of sight. It is all nice and cozy for us...

    I also set on the right side of this photo to get to my HAM RADIO CONSOLE remote heads and speakers mounted to the side of the fold-over sink/stove section when I am yakking on my ham radio radio. My duty laptop and monitors are fixed to a board using Velcro and this is usually sitting just behind the seating cushions in the tent bed area here. The keyboard and mouse are wireless items... I can also get to my computer features just fine using a logged in tablet.

    As you are aware the floor space is very limited with the popups but we get along just fine with ours... Most of the time we are outside sitting around the patio area and only end up inside (in and out) between 6PM and 11PM before retiring for the night... Your slide with the seating and the table would work out good for us as well...
