We've boondocked for about a week, and with regular use, we were unable to fill the 18 gal black tank on the SS. We might have been able to get an additional 3-4 days out of it. We found that the 18 gallon black tank, though smaller than the 33 gallon black tank on the 25 W, is still plenty for 3 people for a bit over a week with some reserve space to spare.

33 gallons would be a lot of capacity...and when boondocking, you'd prob run out of battery power before you could fill the black tank.

Karyn is right about the holding tank size and John McG made an excellant point about the width of the dinette. Janet and I sat side by side at the dinette and it would be extremely cramped for four adults. A friend of ours keeps a couple of nice wooded folding chairs on his motoryacht to seat extra people for dinner. I think the credenza and a couple of chairs would be more comfortable than the dinette. When we car camp we carry a screen house and pitch it over the picnic table so we can eat outside. Kitchen counter space is limited in a 25 too. Looking at the 2005 floorplan, is it possible to mount a folding shelf at the end of the stove by the door?

The galley in the Classic and Safari 25' continues to be a disgrace - one which 20 years of practice does not justify. The sink is too small for a divider (but it has one), and too large for the counter. A two burner unit cooktop is offered in some models, but is not even an option in the 25'. Airstream, are you listening? If so, take a look at my photos and see what CAN be done, and done oh so easily!

But back to your question. A shelf such as you describe has been offered as an option from time to time, and may be yet. If the factory will not do it, it is an easy thing to make.

There is a folding small cutting board type collapse type device in the area you describe already on the 25 C, not sure about the other 25s.

Additionally, the sink has 2 covers that can convert the sinks to counter space (at least they do on the 25 C).

I guess to each their own, but we traded up to a 25 & have found it to be just what we desired. We opted not to go with the full dinette, but have the fold down table. Being just the two of us, we figured that the room saved by not having a full dinette, would give us more room. Also we do have a fold down shelf at the end of the range by the door, along with covers for the sinks. I would concurr that a 2 burner top would be sufficent. If you need more burners than 2, then perhaps it's time to eat out. Ditto for the sink size. We've been real pleased with the unit. Now if I could just get the "soft" spot in front of the range fixed!!!!
Best,
