Happy Days are Here Again

Greetings from Poulsbo, WA! We are Greg & Linda Plow, happy to be back home with our new 21' Escape that we picked up on the 28th of April. It's currently parked in front of its new home, just waiting for me to clean out enough junk so that it nicely fits inside while awaiting its next adventure. I also included a few photos of the interior. I know how much we appreciated seeing the inside of other Escapes when we were trying to design ours, so now it's our turn to share. Most everything in our trailer came from other people's good ideas, but we did venture off on our own when it came to the U-shaped dinette.

We came up with a "bistro table" type design mounted on a stainless steel gas rise pedestal. It fits our dining style nicely for smaller, simple meals most of the time and easily lowers and locks into place for use as a foot stool when relaxing, reading, or watching TV. The full size dining table, since we left off all of the hardware, nicely slides under the mattress for storage and is easily retrieved when needed to place over the round table when making up the extra bed (camping with grandchildren). When we need a larger dinning table (board games, large meals, etc.) the plan is to place a thin non-slip rubber pad on top of the round table and place the larger dinning table on top. Since the bistro table is rock solid with that heavy duty pedestal, I think the plan to simply float the larger table on top of the round table will work well.

We will be at the Escape rally that's coming up soon and are looking forward to seeing many of you there.

Happy Camping,

Greg & Linda

Wowser, beautiful!

Nobody has asked, so I will. Where did you get the post for the table? Maybe you've already answered elsewhere on the forum and I wasn't paying attention?

Thank you, Donna, for your kind compliment. To answer your question, the pedestal is made by Springfield Marine and the model number is 1660230-SS. The range of adjustment is 13 inches to 27 1/2 inches. Since the high number was just a little low for us, I used a wood block attached to the steel mounting plate, and then the table top mounted on top the wood block. I purchased the pedestal on Ebay. I believe the aluminum versions of this product is more readily available at a variety of retailers (like camping world) and function just as well; the stainless version is hard to find and I think we got lucky finding one on ebay.

Hi ! Your trailer looks great !Could you tell us more about mounting plate and diameter of the pedestal . You are right could not find stainless at this time but hate the 2 pole setup in our trailer and would love to do something different . Any more info would be gratefully appreciated .Also is this for boat Seats or tables or it doesn't matter . Pat
