Lots of good questions. The electric roof raise is nice feature for us short people side walls is not too bad either with the latches that I can reach. I like that part best because I can be the one to raise it up. Inside where the dormer is you simply put up the sides and the roof by hand. Ezy peezy. We think our decision to trade in our 194 HW Rockwood Aframe for this 214HW was right one. The bathroom is a Hardside and yes there is a shower curtain inside that's very easy to set up. There is also a roof light for the inside of the shower. Love that too! The only thing for us short people is the fantastic fan is a tad too high to reach even for my hubby who is 5'11." All in all I'd say set up with a Aframe is better and easier than a popup. We go to RV parks now because it's easier to set up plus we don't have to disconnect from the TV for over night.
