I'm gonna have Christmas in July, but the third pic you posted in #1 looks a lot like my tug/tow, except my F-150 is white and a 6.5 bed. I'm slobbering all over my keyboard...

One thing i wish escape would do is if they are going to paint the added insulation under the trailer black, paint all of it. It can not be that expensive to finish the rest of it. They could also remove the overspray from the insulation that get on the lower fiberglass. Other than these two small issues im satisfied with the quality.

Padlin, nice setup. In your opening post you said you had to adjust the hitch...I am guessing you plan to lower things a bit? Looks great. On the f150 did you get the Heavy duty payload? Looks like it. Happy travels and congrats

What refer vent cover are you referring to? The side vent outside?

ETI sends the trailer out for the foam spray and upon return they spray any visible portions black. On my 2012 unit it was all unpainted and mustard yellow, the black is something new. As far as overspray, if I can not see it I'm not too worried.

Okay, the little plastic tab that holds the refer vent attached? They are early replaced, ETI can mail you a replacement tab. In the meanwhile, attach a small bungee to insure it does not fall off with just one tab holding. I do this anyway even with both tabs working, jut in case.

Hi Don, Yes, I dropped the hitch down 2" so far, can go 1" more. I had raised it all the way up and moved it all the way back for the most leeway in taking delivery. Even down the 3" max the trailer is still too low for the truck but it's as close as it's going to be. Could have used the trailer raised up a couple more inches.
I do have the heavy payload pkg and 4x4, which adds E rated 17" rims/tires and whatever extra they add to the suspension. It's almost the height of the SuperDuty's.
