The lights... but what do you call a person who does obnoxious things?

Exactly what I intended by my comment.

Maybe it's just me but I actually prefer a NO light pollution view of the heavens, northern lights, fleeting meteor showers vs the best night view of a poorly lit travel trailer.
But I don't leave my porch light on all night. (unless i forget) Running lights are always turned off after arrival and all have admired the fiberglass glory.

Totally with you on this. We only have our porch light on when using it, not left on for a beacon like some do.

I don't see any reason for lighting up the trailer like a Christmas tree just for the sake of generating light. We normally camp without electrical services, so any lights going are eating into our battery reserve. I will have the porch light going when we are sitting out at the campfire late at night. I will also have the porch light on on occasion when I make a late night trip to the campground washroom, as the orangish color is quite distinctive and helps me to find my way home. I generally only use the front light and street side light when I need to access something on those sides of the trailer in the dark. But other than that, the lights usually stay off.

Maybe you should back off on the amount of spirits you consume then Dave, so you don't get lost so easily.......just sayin'.

Jim, I used to have all kinds of problems finding my trailer in campgrounds where all of the campers look the same. You know, like when you have a few too many and head for some sack time, but when you wake up the next morning, you find that you are in a trailer that is not even yours. That can be really embarrassing. Of course, since I got my Escape with its unique shape and its bright orange front porch beacon light, I have not made that mistake again.

Donna, wait till you try washing it, much bigger then I had imagined. Do you experienced FG trailer folks wash the roof every time you wash the trailer?

By the way I measured it today, overall 10'3"H x 21'9"L x 7'9"W. Includes Spare, awning, and the Jack Antenna.
