Re: Almost Done!

That is right, Steve. The existing one already goes under the dinette seat a bit.

That is where my BBQ gets stored, which wouldn't work with the larger tank.

Which brings to question, how many folks out there have found the existing black tank to be too small?

It's always too small when you have to empty it. I've had to hitch up a couple of times just to dump. Wasn't really that big a deal, except I had to drive a half hour into Merritt to dump at Canadian Tire ( free ). Of course, I did pick up some more beer.

Re: Almost Done!

In our Casita we came close a few times to filling the black tank. Seemed to be able to get close to a week before having to hit the dump station.

Re: Almost Done!

Looking good, Steve. I hope you have a safe pick up be it in Chilliwack or Southern CA although I'm hoping the weather enables Chilliwack to work out for you b/c getting to tour the factory as well as meet Reace, Tammy & the rest of the Escape crew is a great experience. Regardless, I'm sure it'll be great to finally get in your new trailer & start using it. See you back in TX.

Re: Almost Done!

Hi Jackie,
Yes we will be at BB. Looks like I will have to wait a few more weeks to get it. I was supposed to be there today for pickup but last weeks winter storm prevented that. So I will be "tagging" on with a delivery going to So. Cal. next month. By the way, really like your new enclosure.
