Re: Ron&Jeans 19 ft Escape "Leap of Faith"

I just cannot wait to get my 17'B..... The wait is already now bad, and I just ordered last Thursday/Friday... Bolerama sounds like lots of fun, hmmm. Something to consider for 2010.

Thanks for sharing this great shots!

Gerda

Gerda, the wait for me was not quite that long, but was still over the winter. It does seems long, but it is worth the wait.

Re: Ron&Jeans 19 ft Escape "Leap of Faith"

The wait for us was magnified by the fluctuation of the Canadian dollar.If I had paid in full shortly after I ordered I could have gotten the trailer for quite a bit less.The longer I waited the worse the exchange rate got.
Our trailer is Born

Re: Ron&Jeans 19 ft Escape "Leap of Faith"

At least my wait is "shortened" by how busy I will be until 2010. And all the holidays, inclusive a visit to my family back in Germany over Christmas... 8)

A few more photos.This bed is HUGE.After sleeping in a 13 ft Uhaul for the past 7 years the queen bed is truly living in the lap of luxury.

But Ron, you have your heads at the wrong end of the trailer.

Re: Ron&Jeans 19 ft Escape "Leap of Faith"

It only appears that the head is at the wrong end.If you look at the facts you will see that it is really the only way to go.Because my head is next to the counter space I can reach my water in the middle of the night.I can also plug in the coffee pot with a snap of my wrist as it sits on the counter next to the plug near my head.The TV is also mounted on the wall next to the refrigerator so it is easier to view from the door side. Not to mention that I can leave the protected widow open at my head on a rainy day.

Re: Ron&Jeans 19 ft Escape "Leap of Faith"

We sleep with our heads at that side of the trailer too because I keep the little flip up counter always up (too difficult to put down with the thick cushions and our foam topper)
And yes with the awning you can have the window open and a bit of rain won't matter..

Re: Ron&Jeans 19 ft Escape "Leap of Faith"

I have a need to face the door of anywhere I sleep, same as sitting. Weird, I know. Besides, we have our TV mount and connections (if we ever use it that is) at the end of the cabinets, and instead will use a magazine rack/shelf mounted on the wall of the fridge for putting stuff down. We often have the same window open on rainy warmer evenings, though we have seen little rain on any outings so far with the 19, maybe 3 outta 35 so far.

I had a request for a shot of the dining area so here it is in live in condition. The table is really kool as it slides left and right for easy seating.
