Looks great, Ellen! You must be so excited! That red and black are something!

What color are the graphics? Why is the exterior light low? Is that the case now on 17's?

It's beautiful Ellen! I bet you can't wait until the 15th!
Is that a mattress in front where the 2 seat dinette usually is? Didn't know that was an option?
My 17B won't be hatched for a while, little less that a year to wait, seems like forever. What were your final build options? Congrats!

Ha, I just saw our Escape calendar with a 17' on it and that is where the light is located. You don't necessarily notice these things on other models!

Good for you, Ellen. Can't wait to hear of your travels.

Thank you. Yes, I chose the permanent bed to be in front since I'm flying alone. I do a lot of art so love having the space of the larger dinette.

My main options (which I could never have decided upon without the support of the cool people on this forum are:

Rotate stove 90 degrees for more counter space
Additional horizontal brake lights
No A/C but A/C ready
Aluminum Rims
Exterior shower
High Lift Axle
Hitch Wheel
LED interior light package.
Opening window in Bath
Power jack
Solar Panel
Spray Foam insulation for under trailer
Stainless sink and chrome faucets
Storage box
Surge protector
Thermal windows and extra insulation
Foot flush toilet
Cell phone antenna install.

I plan on doing 90% boondocking which is the reason for the solar and extra insulation.

Believe me, the time will FLY. I am continuously reminded how lucky I am to have had the full year for decisions and preparation.

Congratulations and enjoy your year of anticipation!!!
