Hi again. :-)
To all the Escape owners who will be at Quartzite this weekend…
I just realized…. I have read many threads here on this awesome forum, and poured over the options list…. made spreadsheets…
and have owned a Casita 17' for four years (and read just about every thread over on the two Casita forums) so am fairly familiar with how a fiberglass travel trailer works….
But my wife, daughter and I have seen an Escape only once, a 21’ for about an hour in total. We plan on ordering a 2017 21’ Escape travel trailer April 1st.
We are about 20-ish years away from retiring… but with our young daughter we love to camp, when we can.
This weekend at Quartzsite there will be at least three 21’ Escapes (yay!) and I may have a chance to see some variations in what people did on their build sheet…..
The things I would most like to *SEE* this weekend, if anyone has any of these things on their Escape
… and would be willing to show us….
… in no particular order, would be:
The stock sink (FWIIW we only want 2 burners, and would turn it sideways to maximize counter space)
The stock Formica (to get a sense of the color)
The stock floor (to get a sense of the color)
The stock fabric (to get a sense of the color)
LED Awning Light (went up to $170 - ouch)
Tadi Brothers Model # 90117 backup cam.
Under trailer insulation (just to see it… i have read the threads)
“extended cabinet above drawer stack” (although I don’t even know what that is…)
The $475 Pro Series 600LB Trunnion WDH& sway control
the $625 Trunnion- 92-00-0600 WDH& sway control
(it is my understanding that they dont install Andersen anymore. The Andersen had the big advantage of not needing to remove the sway bar before backing up…)
Does anyone happen to know if the two Trunnion models I mention above, [that ETI DOES currently install, that have sway control] have a sway that can stay *on* when backing up ?
Let me know - - - either post on this thread, or a personal message - - - - thanks! :-)
Los Angeles. (hopefully arriving 9-ish pm Friday, leaving probably around 11 am Sunday)
