Yeah, that is easy for you to say.

Exciting to see it come together, eh?

It would be easier to tell you what we left off. . In the end we ordered it pretty loaded because we wanted to do it one time with no regrets. Off the top of my head, we left off the screen room, outside propane connect, oven, led lights (we will replace them later), no heat pads, tv arm, and no stereo/DVD. It is a good thing we didn't have any more time to change our mind.

Nice - very good decisions. Your build sounds very similar to ours. We left off the same ones except we did get the LED lights. In the 10 months we've had it we've used every option except the bike rack and cable connection.

This summer I fashioned a screen room out of some screening bought when Zellers went out of business. When I've tidied up the details I'll make a post on how successful (or not) I felt it was.

Other than that we've been very pleased with the choices we made. We're very excited for you!

Thanks, I'd love to see your screen room idea.

I think you made good decisions.
You would have to compare the Escape LED package with other options. We replaced with LEDs as we experienced the trailer. We have them where we read and they have spread to the food prep area ( but that's only because we put the bright white LEDs there - they had been replaced with warm white for reading ).
As for the screen room, we've yet to use ours. Last camp, we headed for home rather than fight them.
