We just received our first photos, and I can't sit in my chair at work. They're just the shell on the frame, but ...It's really happening.

Here's a couple. The shell has the solar already installed, and the fender washers for the solar mounting are visible on the interior roof behind the framing for overhead cabinets.
It appears that the lower and upper frig vent openings are the same size for our 3 cu.ft. as the larger size frigs.

Edit: I can't believe this is really happening. Aaaaaah!
Congratulations Teresa and Don ! Won't be long now ! Pat and Linda

Thanks, Ellen.

Yeah! After years of planning our retirement and gawking at trailers, we finally retired and looked at a Casita (which is what I thought would be our perfect trailer). Upon seeing a Casita, it seemed too cramped. Then we discovered Escape---there was no turning back. We then needed to decide which trailer we wanted to buy (I wanted the 5.0TA, but my husband didn't want the added weight). The first and only Escape we viewed was 19' and a couple of hours away--we fell in love. Thanks Jan and Ellie! We had so many questions we followed up with many more e-mails to ETI.

Escape offers so many alternatives and options it was overwhelming. Once we put down a deposit to purchase our 19' there were hours of discussions on what is necessary and what would be nice to have. Of course we would be happy with the basic model but because we can, we did. I agonized on the interior and found fabric that both my husband and I would like. I made colorful pillows to add color so I have the option of changing it up in the years ahead.

Can't figure out how to upload photos but I'm enjoying all of yours. We are so excited and are looking forward to a 6 week road trip!

Your story sounds, oh, so familiar. It is a fun adventure.

Look at post #7 for photo-posting help

Congratulations Don and Teresa!!! I'm so excited for you guys. Please post lots of pictures as my 17A is due late October. After turning ... in my build sheet ... I thought .. no big deal, I'll just wait my turn. Now after seeing your "Sister Ship" forming, I feel my blood pressure rising! Its going to be soooo much fun.

Wow, a great Friday set of pics. Everyone's trailers look awesome and interested to see the 17A progress as I don't recall seeing one of that layout built. Ours is due in Nov and these builds are really making it feel like it is finally close. Sent all of our passport card apps in this week to prepare for the pickup trip.
Everyone will be picking up these trailers before they can blink. Drive safe and can't wait to see more pics.

We're not picking up until the 25th, so we can then head to the NOG on Oct. 1. It will be hard, come Sept. 14, to wait... so if you see a 21 with purple ("berry") graphics, snap a pic, will ya? Maybe we'll catch up to you later...
