The magazine racks were a great idea! I may steal the idea of acrylic mirrors - I had no idea such a thing existed and currently am hoping that my mirror tiles adhered with double sided sticky tape don't come crashing off.
You have a great trailer!

I see you posted Camping World as the source. Burlington store? I'll drive down if that was where you found them.
Don - I ordered directly from the website and had it shipped to "Ship Happens" in Sumas, Washington.

Ship Happens - locations

The shipping is cheaper and quicker with a US address and ship happens only charges $5.00 per parcel. I wasn't charged anything at the border either. (It also gives me an excuse to cruise down to Bellingham for the day!)

CAUTION WILL ROBINSON!

I noticed you have a Dri-Z-Air canister sitting in the sink (good choice btw), BUT do yourself a HUGE favor and put it inside a plastic tub (like the kind you use to wash dishes on the picnic table). If the water overflows in the sink, it will PIT the stainless. Much, much better to be safe than sorry!

Our new Escape

Actually Donna, that was the Dri-Z-Air canister from our tool shed. We bought one of those stainless steel marine canisters for our Escape. Talked to some boating friends that swear by them so we bought one at the RV show. Ours is mounted vertically on the side of the wardrobe. Seems to work great - when the inside changes to pink, you just place it in the oven to reactivate it. Good warning though - I've heard about people forgetting they left the Dri-Z-Air container on the counter and ended up with a bad spill or stain.

Please tell me more about the stainless steel marine canister you use for your Dri-Z-Air. Sounds like a great idea. Can you tell me the brand name and places I might find such a thing other than at an RV show? Posting a picture would be great too. Thank you.

This is my first post. I will be picking up my beautiful Escape 15A next May,
Carol R

They are called H20out and were sold at the Chilliwack RV show last year - the exhibitor was Wright Mariner Supply.

H2Out Space Dryers: Available in 4 sizes. Perfect for removing moisture from boats, cars, RV's, tents, garages and homes. Can be reactivated indefinitely, easy to use and no risk of spillage.

It was not cheap - we got a large one and I think it was around $100 but we figured it was a lot easier, safer and cheaper in the long run than the Dri-Z-Air. Looks nice too! Seems to do a good job but as a few have stated, breathing in any confined space adds the most moisture so unless you're prepared to stop breathing, they'll always be some moisture present.

Thank you so much for the information!
I found them on Amazon. Now I just have to decide

The counter tops are Formica brand:
Pattern color is "Mineral Jet" with a Radiance finish 3450-RD.

My color scheme was black, grey and cream so I wanted a laminate that pulled all my colors plus I wanted black edging for my trims - I supplied that.

We have one canister and picked the larger size recommended for the cubic area of our 17B. Here's a picture of it mounted below our magazine rack.

I will agree with everything except cheaper. Dri-Z-Air canisters are less than $10 and the crystals, if purchased on sale, are $1. I use 2-3 bags a year. It would take about 30 years of using Dri-Z-Air to equal one of those $100 products.And the Dri-Z-Air canisters never wear out.
