Very nice!
Can you tell me which faucet you ended up choosing?
And, did you purchase the electric heater, ship it to Reace and have him install it?
Only 32 nights to go for you now :<)

We found a faucet at Ikea. One with a high arch and without a large footprint on the counter.

For the heater there will only be a roughed in opening and I will have to install the heater. I believe Escape is unable to install heater due to regulations.

In our 17B the storage around the bed/dinette was for clothes, in this trailer it can be used for kitchen items.

Standard view of ongoing construction

View of the sleeping area also showing captains lights that will hopefully be good reading lights over the shoulder. The framing near the power jacks is for the stairs which also have storage.

Those are the highlights from the first set of photos, Ellen and I are looking forward to getting more and finally seeing it in person

Some More Photos of the Ongoing Build

Just over 2 weeks until the delivery of our new trailer, 16 sleeps . When the order was placed last October it seemed like a long time away, things have happened pretty quick the last few weeks.

[/IMG]

A picture to prove that Escape Trailer Industries is building our trailer.

[/IMG]

Picture of the optional big fridge, as mentioned earlier it was chosen so we would not have to carry a cooler for beverages. There is lots of storage in the 5.0 compared to our old 17B so we don't think the deleted storage will be missed. At the bottom of the fridge you can see the cut out for the 120volt wall heater I will install.

[/IMG]

Kitchen before drawer fronts and things

[/IMG]

The high arch faucet we selected and " slate sequoia " formica counter tops.

[/IMG]

Cupboard doors,drawer fronts and stainless steel range hood. You can also see the fabric we chose on the valance.

[/IMG]

View up to the sleeping area, and pantry on the right. For those that don't know there is also storage in the bottom stair.

We kinda went with a leap of faith on the fridge. The new standard fridge would have been smaller than the one we had in the 17B, and there were times it was FULL.

Being that it is so voluminous there may be a challenge in keeping things from moving around during travel if it is not completely full.

If there is enough beverages in there, they can act as a temperature sink and help keep temp consistent.

The beer glass is half full

Up early and heading for the ferry

Today is the day we pick up the new trailer. Lots to do as the hitch has to be installed as well today.

No more sleeps
