Thank you all for the 411. It all sounds great. We are picking up a 2619 inFlorida. We have not seen it yet except pictures but it looks very well loved and takencare of. We currently own a compact Ii. It is 13 foot. But one thing it does have is cabinets but only 1 bed.The table turns into the bed and I have to stand by the door so my Dh can make the bed. So this camper will be an upgrade defineatly.

Ohhh are you getting the one from the St. Augustine Camping World??? I went in it Saturday and it is in perfect good as Brand NEW condition. All the next owner needs to do is wash the out side. It looked like it has never been slept in and it is a 2009.

We found.ours on rvtrader. It is a 1997 2619. From the pictures it looks great. Well cared for. It is in Jacksonville. the couple want to give up camping. We looked at one in our area but it was in real rough shape. We already own a 1973 compact II. It is 13ft. And it needs a lot of work. We just want to camp.

CherylTh: Our TM is a 25/18 and just got back from camping for five days up in the Central Oregon Mountains. There is not as far as I am concerned a real big difference between the 25/18 or 19. When we originally bought ours the gentlemen had the closet not attached which naturally we put back in when arriving back home after purchase. It now sits on a storage shelf in the garage as we get more use with the plastic drawer units that you can buy at the bigger hardware places. We get three of them to sit on the counter where the closet used to be. You can then lift them down one by one and proceed to stretch a bungee cord from the handle on the bathroom fold down to a handle on the three drawer built-in chest. Holds them all in place.
The wife puts all kinds of cooking stuff around the oven area and keeps a rubber tote in the bath with nested pans. We put our sleeping bags on end in front of the pota potti for travel. We also keep a few rubber totes in the dinette area. Our use is just camping so far and being 68 it makes the camping a 100% better experience for us as we can still go to our favorite places but with much shorter set-up time as compared to tent. We loved it but cannot handle that type anymore. We had one extra adult besides the wife and I on this last trip and so bought an tension curtain rod along with a couple of panels of curtains for modesty and everything was great. Ours is rated for six people but I would never go over four and not use the dinette for a sleep area. Old and slow need more elbowroom to get in or out. It's all going to be trial and error for you but in the end it will all work out on the storage issue. This forum is very good for suggestions.

There was only DW and myself that used our 2619, so we stored a lot of stuff on the floor in crates and suitcases when traveling that was moved to the front bed when we set up. We also removed the wardrobe and never used the hanging cabinets. We had plenty of room, but it is a bit of trouble moving the stuff everytime we setup. We liked the 2619 a lot though... congrats on yours and I hope you enjoy it as much as we did. You'll come up with your own methods for packing.

Soon as we got back from our first trip a couple days ago, we removed the 'closet' that lays on the floor during travel and stands on the rear counter top next to the bed in our 2720sd. Just took too much of the floor space during travel. We're gonna try some plastic 'milk crates' to keep stuff in on the floor when moving, and stack them on the shelf like little cubes. We just don't normally camp with clothing that needs to be kept hanging.
I removed the closet within 15 minutes of ownership of our new TrailManor. We instead use flip-lid plastic boxes and in our 2720SD three of these boxes line up side-by-side perfectly on the counter where the closet would have been. One box has my clothes, one box for DW clothes and one box is the dry food box. This is suitable for the weekend campouts. On longer trips a second dry food box stacks on top of the other dry food box. The nice thing about these boxes is that they stack so nicely in the truck without sliding off of each other.

We generally have no ability to open up the trailer to load it up with clothes and food before we leave.
