Picking up where we left off on the tour:

backside of the cabinets - over 90% of the wood contained in an Elite II is right here.

Insulation is only the start of "stuff" going into the bottom.

Whereas all the business of these trailers happens between hulls, while nowhere near as pretty, I actually prefer the old style build of the kitchen drawers where the back is almost completely open. With those new cabinets, if getting to the rear area is needed those Kreg screws will never come out, once the cabinet is installed. I would prefer that they had the cabinets made with the assembly hardware accessible from the inside. As an example, the propane line runs up the back wall behind the right side drawers, completely enclosed back panel, the water lines run along the floor behind the whole cabinet and the fridge outlet tends to sit on the floor on the left side.

 

For structural integrity, I would much rather see 3- 2" strips, one at the bottom, top and middle and one across the top rear too. The only time anyone will ever see that back area is when they NEED to, and by the time they're done with it, pretty won't count anymore

I agree, but these cabinets look to be better built then ours were last year with more space used. But I still see a lot of wasted space inside there that could really be used. Taking off the back and adding 2" to the length of the drawers looks feasible. The oversized magnets that I had to put in ours, holds our drawers securely in place on the road. These are custom built cabinetts, so seeing the new and improved style here in the pics do look a lot better then the 2017 style that many of us had to rebuild ourselves.

Happy Camping,

Good to see that they're putting an actual drawer in front of the sink now instead of that useless tilt out thing.

 

Like a lot of customer mods that Oliver said 'can't be done' until they do it themselves and decide to make it standard.
