Oh what a fun choice for you both.

I can see the right bedding would really set it off.

A beautiful job, Julie, so happy and fun! The wait is almost over:^)

You're right, this forum is a great community of folks--very knowledgeable and supportive. As new Escape owners, we have all been very fortunate to have this site to help guide us along!

All the best to you and happy travels~
Peace,
Gae and Ike

Love the extended bench on the front dinette! You are going to love the open space. A mere 6" reduction on our 17B closet made a huge difference for us. We would have deleted it completely only if the closet wasn't crucial for the gaucho support. I am so going to do that in my next 17B (in about... 14 years?)

Congrats!

I really love the colors you chose, and the floor goes perfect with it!
Reminds me of 50s diner or soda shop!

Hey I bet you've got your trailer by now! We have just decided ( yesterday) to ungrade ( should I say 'upcomfort') from our trusty windproof Eureka tent, and are heading to Chilliwack next week to put in our order..very likely the 17b as well. I do like your modifications very much. The checkered floor and the bench seat in a bright colour echo me back to a vintage 1950's trailer feeling. I found your photos easily under your profile.

Thanks to everyone for such warm wishes. Our orientation went well. Although it was tiring and a little overwhelming for us who are new to rving we were suprised at how much we remembered when we got home. We are certain that watching the orientation video numerous times over the past few weeks made the whole thing easier.
Our short drive home (an hour and a half) went well. We are using our Jeep Liberty to tow with and were happy. We may opt for a different vehicle in the future but for now it works.
Our Escape received a warm welcome at home. The family had chalked arrows down the road and into our driveway and sketched out a landing pad with "Escape Here" with balloons all around and even champagne!
We will comment later on how we feel about some of our modifications when we actually get out camping. What we can say is that we are soooo sure we made the right decision in choosing an Escape. The quality has surpassed what we were expecting.
Julie and Jose
