Took delivery of our 195 just over a week ago and completed a short 3 day shakedown.  Traded in our 182G and do miss the "garage" but love the bigger fridge, 11 foot awning, and rv queen bed.  Combination of solar panel and inverter took care of running the fridge without consuming propane while on the road.  We did add 2nd battery.  Narrower fenders look strange.  No more side marker lights on the fenders...I may add those myself.  Ladder to the roof makes it easy to look at the fir needle collection.  Storage space is huge.  Makes up for clunky profile at the rear.  Word of caution for future 195 owners:  cover panels under the cushions in the little seats can bounce loose and the rear one can (will?) jam underneath when deploying the slideout.  Mine did and nearly ripped out the pantry door frame.  Devil of a time getting it loose and now I have repair job to plan and execute.  Oh, and the fairly roomy dry bath is a very welcome change.  We're towing with a 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee V8 and cannot feel any difference in over the road behavior compared to hauling the 182G.  Did add aux mirrors to improve vision around the wider "box".  In total: lovin' every minute of it!  Even during the downpour at Millersylvania SP in WA.  Have fun out there!
