It would save everyone so much time to simply keep a spreadsheet list extracted from build sheets with all the allowed mods.

Absolutely! This is what I have done, some thoughts extracted from others ideas, but also a lot of ideas unique to me too. Once complete, a discussion with Escape will reveal costs, and what they can do for me.

About 4 weeks left for the reveal. Any friendly speculation?

How about no more curved entry door changed to the industry standard flat door....and a non wood composite floor.

I like the curved door on my Escape. I think that if Escape modified their door design so that it has the same shape (matching the curve of the exterior of the trailer) but was much stiffer, it would perform better and provide a better seal around the door gasket.

I like the door too. A flat door on a curved trailer looks weird to me YMMV. This is a Trillium Jubilee, a bit flatter trailer, but the door would look better if it didn't look like a after thought.

Door is great as it is, the newer ones are now heavier as they are insulated. There is no floor issue re:wood vs composite as there is no rot. New frameless windows, new pedestal table, maybe Atwood water heater, new style awning like either Oliver or Airstream that have the protection built in.

Mine was done in late 2013 and I believe it became standard right after that, if you got the thermal package. My 2012 Escape had insulated window in the door, but the door was not insulated. When ordering the 2014 Escape I inquired about that disparity and was told it was corrected now.

Awning....good guess. Maybe those bump out legs that attach to the lower shell could be solved since they would not sell Reace the machine that made the legs flat and flush. You senior forum members will remember that.
