Interesting ideas. Not many windows. And I would expect to see all those fold up things fall apart shortly. Not sure if I would like a bed with a fold down the middle.

I like that idea. It did look very roomy. I hadn't seen a sofa like that one. Also a good thing.

hummm would need to remember to take the table down before going to bed... otherwise I KNOW I'd trip over it on one of those midnight excursions! Interesting concept tho.

Wow, what a nicely done layout! And what a great bunch of features for the money. But, it IS a sticky, so for us, nope . An egg with that type of floorplan would definitely get our attention. Having the stove next to the door is smart. And since it's just the two of us (plus Macgregor our Border Collie), having only one bed is perfect....and a queen size at that!

I guess when I'm 75 and have only a couple years camping left I could go for it. But wait, that's only in 11 years, I think I'll still be in my 86' Burro 17' by then. Maybe I'll wait a little longer.......

I like the Queen bed for sure, as for being a Stickie it is hard to call something not made of wood a stickie.
Aluminum Framed Superstructure
EPDM Rubber Roof
Exterior Fiberglass Surface
Vacuum Bonded Laminated Construction
It is not a molded fiberglass, but hardly a stickie. We need a new buzzword for this type of construction, IMHO. But again maybe it is just me. There may not be many wood stud constructed travel trailers being made anymore.

I can see maybe calling them Framies.

Here's a link to the floor plans and the love seat is an option and it is a 17' 4" trailer.
http://www.palominorv.com/site/default.asp...;series=Gazelle

Nice sized holding tanks and fresh water tank. Model G150
Dry Hitch Weight 153 lbs. (69 KG )
Unloaded Vehicle Weight 2,507 lbs. (1,137 KG )
Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) 3,653 lbs. (1,657 KG )
Cargo Carrying Capacity TBA (TBA)
Exterior Length 17 ft. 4 in. (5.3 m)
Exterior Height 9 ft. 6 in. (2.9 m)
Exterior Width 91 in. (2.3 m)
Fresh Water Capacity 30 Gal. (114 L)
Gray Water Capacity 31 Gal. (117 L)
Black Water Capacity 38 Gal. (144 L)

Getting from the galley to the sleeping/living room seems a little strange, must cross through the dinnette.

Could be a nice one.

Thanks!

How bout calling them "Alumies?" or "Lumies?"
Maybe instead of "stick built" they could be "metal built."

Even better we could call them "Leakies...."
