The round bowl sink and above-counter stoves were both standard. The recessed sink and stove (SMEV) were mark-up options during that period.
Interesting. Well, as I said, the hatch and hose were installed prior to the coach being painted, so it may have been a special-order add-on. I don't think that the recessed sink and stove were available for '04... at least I've not yet seen photos an '04 with the recessed bowl and stove.
I have the original sales receipt in my files, so I'll have to go over it more closely and see whether it was a special order coach, or bought off the showroom. I've spent so much time on deferred-maintenance repairs that I've just not explored that much. The coach was sold new by Colonial Airstream in NJ and the original owners lived in NJ. I bought it from a dealership where the original owner had consigned it.
