    just placed new order for 2019 22fbs caliber but wife has some advice/input for order

    just placed our order for a new 22fbs caliber


    my wife has asked the salesman when placing the order with your factory to as two things.


    1. the stove top folds rear to create a backsplash for cooking yet there is a decorative faux tile backsplash on that back wall getting no use. couldnt you put the faux tile on the wall to the right of the stove to protect that wall from hot grease and such..


    2.caliber states a double steel sink in the kitchen. wife prefers the large open square steel sink there. is that the std type in caliber now or will we need to mention this request also...

    You should call Heartland Customer Service at 877-262-8032 / 574-262-8030. Ask for North Trail Sales and they will be able to tell you if your build can be customized. But please be aware that in a high volume production system, customizations add unwanted complexity in manufacturing. So don't be surprised if the answer is no.

    Or if the answer is $$$$. Also you won't get a direct answer here. You need to call the Manufacture to ask these things, because by the time anyone from there sees this post your unit will probably be on it's way. I assure you Heartland doesn't have anyone sitting at a terminal reading all the post on the forum all day and night.

    1) You can add a full backsplash easily and remove whatever partial backsplash comes with the unit. Great products are Inoxia Speed Tiles, Fasade Backsplash panels, and Smart Tiles.

    2) Large open sinks are available aftermarket and can be installed pretty easily. Make sure your water lines are tight and no leaks. Also make sure you caulk with a flexible caulk that will move a bit with the trailer as it expands and contracts in hot and cold weather, but still holds a tight, waterproof seal.

    Have fun with your trailer. We just ordered the same unit 22FBS in the Tiger Cherry Caliber Edition and are going to pull the couch and dinette, put in dual recliners, a full residential King Mattress for a full walk around bed and a few more mods. Will post photos as we go along to help others.
