Mine doesn't have a dinette and the frig is where the rear end of the dinette is on this one. We have more storage on the other side of the trailer just in front of the aft bedroom. It was made by Sun Trek (not Suntrek, as I erroneously posted elsewhere) and is called a Vista. We bought it new and still have it. It solved the leak and wall separation problems of the Award design and is much heavier -GVWR is 7000 lb. But once it is up to speed I averaged 14 mpg with our Odyssey and more than 16 with our diesel Jeep Grand Cherokee. That's because of the aerodynamics fore and aft, and low sidewalls because of the peaked roof so very little sidesway in crosswinds. Have thought of moving up to a Class A used motorhome, but this one is so cheap to maintain, that may be a mistake. The one thing it doesn't have is slide-outs, but they are heavy and can break, so we're happy having no repairs to worry about so far after 13 years.

Hi Terry,

Any issues with your frame? It's an unusual weight saving design. It was the part of the trailer that concerned me the most as so few were made that I did't know if there was a sufficient sample of users to accurately tell if it was a sound design. The frame on the Vista is also a completely different design than I have seen on Award trailers.
