Last week I made a trip to Chilliwack to have the newly available fiberglass tongue storage box installed on our 19' Escape. The new box replaces a metal box that we were using. My younger son, who also uses the Escape, thought it would be a good idea to have a storage box on the trailer front and obtained the metal box and Reace installed it for us when the trailer was being built. The metal box served us well, but when I saw pictures of the new box that metal box didn't look long for this world. This was confirmed at the Spring NOG, when I checked out Hippo's box on his 19 footer. This was déjà vu. When I had a Casita and saw the 19' Escape at the Oregon Gathering, the Casita was history and so it is when I saw the new fiberglass box, that metal box was history.
Reace and his crew did a super job of installation and I could not be more pleased with the new fiberglass box. If anyone of you is thinking of ordering an Escape or already have one, do give serious thought of adding the new fiberglass box, you won't regret it.
Here are some pictures of the old and new boxes (I hope the pictures come out!!!)
Also added were additional rear lights that Hippo has on his Escape. After my wife recently got rear-ended and while going to Chilliwack and seeing a very l o n g traffic backup on westbound Provincial Route 1, additional lights made a lot of sense. Again, the install was super - the employee who mounted the lights spent considerable time measuring where to mount the light and drill the required holes. He could have been a brain surgeon when he drilled the holes and not damage the interior wall covering.
Here's a picture of the new lights.
With this trip to Chilliwack, I got to see the new facilities. And it is nice, very nice.
This was, I think, my 5th trip to Chilliwack and each time Reace is extra-ordinary helpful and accommodating and Tammy is gracious as always. As we all know it's a genuine pleasure to know and do business with them!!!!!
