While Donna was dancing, ETI finished our trailer!!! So, this will be our last photo contribution for a while.

Now the real waiting starts - our pickup date is May 5. I better get started on chores like installing the brake controller, picking out a radio system, finding 12 chargers for the laptop, etc. No rest for the weary, as they say.

Enjoy...

Congrats, looks great! I like the blue fabric choice. Is that kitchen sink and faucet the standard ETI or did you provide it?

The sink is the "Donna standard upgrade sink" - a Franke BMSK802 bar sink. (Larger than the typical bar sink by an inch or two in all dimensions. Sourced it from Home Depot.

The faucet is a Moen S61708, ASCENT™ Single-Handle High Arc Pull Out Bar/Prep Faucet. Sourced it from Amazon.

I packaged them together and used the US Post Office to mail the pieces to ETI.

Postage and insurance, if I recall correctly: 80USD.

This looks beautiful!! And it's awesome because even though we haven't picked out our trailer yet, I have selected my custom fabric (and formica) and it's a blue that's close to what you show here. I'm hoping to use ultraleather which is the fabric used on Airstreams. It is thicker than other fabrics so I'm not sure if Escape will be able to work with that but I sure hope so. Has anyone else tried that?

Also, is that an optional extra window at the foot of the bed (above the cabinet)? Not sure I've seen that before. If we get the 21 we were thinking we would add a window at the head of the bed (if possible) but I'm wondering if what you've done might make more sense?

The window over the drawer cabinet at the foot of the bed is an ETI option for $200.

A window at the head of the bed is exposed to high velocity rain and road debris while under tow and didn't seem to be a good option.

Wow! You did a beautiful job, Alan. Our turn is coming soon. We have a March 9 completion date, but won't pickup until late May. The 21s are beautiful rigs and perfect for two adults and a 4 footed friend!

Boy I like the looks of your 21. We have the same exterior color but do not have the storage box. That window over the night stand is a great option. That's the problem with buying early, you see all these cool ideas that I never even thought of. Escape is special in that way. They just keep evolving.
