thanks much for posting these.... looks great!



does anyone happen to know if it is easy and cheap to later swap out the panelling on the front of the fridge/freezer? (for traditional stainless look, or similar)

i'm not a huge fan of the wood front look.

The graphics are black and it is the standard refrigerator. We considered a different refrigerator but realized that after camping in tents, a sticky trailer, and two different motor-homes, this was the largest refrigerator, we opted to stay standard.

when Escape provides the actual dry weight to you after it completes production, it would be great if you would post the actual dry weight here so we can compare it to the new 2017 Escape 19 that has been delivered to another lucky camper...who knows maybe some campers will change their mind to an Escape 21 from a Escape 19! Thanks
The raised dinette floor is not an option on the 2017 model. I believe there were some changes to the trailer framing that now require a raised floor on all models.

I am also interested in the actual dry weight. My plan is to have it weighed right after we get the NY registration and taxes paid. I will be sure to post the actual weight.

Yay on the trailer!
Yes, the extended cabinet will have the shelves installed. Must be one of the last minute tasks that need to be done.

Yes, very easy. I bought this panel at Lowe's and had my son cut it to size in his shop. As I recall, the panel was about USD$20.

You can also have a poster print made of one of your photographs, mount it on 1/8" Foamcore, and use it as a face for the refrigerator. There are not too many places to display a large photo in any of the Escape trailers...

So that's how you did it. The result is nice. Thanks for the info.

Only thing is you have to be able to take pictures like Jon that are also super high resolution.
