New 19ft. in Washington

I went and picked up our new 19 foot on Friday. The Escape team is outstanding. It is about two and a half hours from Chilliwack to our home. I could hardly notice it behind our Ford Expedition. I posted photos in the Gallery (be sure to log in to get to the user photo galleries) of it's arrival on a snowy weekend. After we ordered the trailer, I headed up to the factory to figure out options. Reace was genuinely helpful in explaining the options and challenged me on whether we really needed some of them. I can tell he is proud that base set up is an excellent trailer and wants to make sure everyone gets a trailer that meets their needs and they will be happy with for a long time. Here's a list of options we selected. We'll have to get some trips in during the next few months in order to provide feedback on what we find most useful.

1. Air Conditioner, 2. Bike rack ready, 3. Cot, 4. Duel 6V batteries, 5. Exterior Shower, 6. Extra Insulation and thermal windows., 7. LED lights inside and out, 8. Storage Box, 9. Oven and 3 burners, 10. Stainless steel sink, 11. Removable power chord, 12. Door in seat bench, 13. two way hot water tank, 14. 2-12V outlets and a 12V wire to front shelf

My wife and kids did not get an chance to see an Escape live until I got it home. Luckily they love it.

Jeepers. Which options didn't you get? And why?

I am envious.

And I see, you got the new box on the front! That's destined to be a standard for sure.
I know you can't wait to get out there with the wife and kids....may you have many happy campfires

Re: New 19ft. in Washington

Robin: I liked the pictures, The problem i have is the more i read on this site the more options i keep wanting. Our 19 is to be built April 20. I can see the benefit of the removable power cord and it is going on the list for the next call to tammy. You know it may be easier to list the options that we dont want.!!!
If you have more pictures could you send them to me as we have only seen one 17 and living on PEI canada east coast it is not an option to go to the factory.

Re: New 19ft. in Washington

What is the benefit of the removable power cord? Eliminates one portal for creature invasion when hooked up....but also brings in the possibility of losing it somewhere (maybe that's just me that forgets things). Just asking, since I've seen more and more choose it.

Hi: HokieEscape...Dan, even with the power cord attached, I still managed to pull away on our second morning, with the plug jumping in the grass!!! Alf

More "hidden" options that don't get listed in the website If it wasn't so much fun lurking around the forum, one would become frustrated by the options available on Escape trailers but never mentioned any where else.

Our 17B is just about due for finalizing the option sheet and I would hate to miss anything useful.

Re: New 19ft. in Washington

I plan to change my power cord to a removable one. The prongs that are on the slide in one are broken now due to using in a bunch in sub-zero temps. Also, you have to stow the 30A adapter because it doesn't fit stowed on the cord, so might as well store it all. I have had a few times where the cord got tangled with other stuff when pushed in under the bed too, and that is a real pain to untangle, the hardest part being to convince the missus that she has to crawl in there.
