Congratulations to you both! I wish you many happy traveling years!

I heard you are so excited that you have weighed all your clothes, food, all the stuff that goes in the trailer.

Here's a picture of the two mods I had Reace build for me. I'm happy with them both; used a fold up tv table when I wanted one. I also planned to have Escape's folding tables installed at the foot of the bed, and on both sides of the dinette, but came home with them uninstalled as I'm not sure if I need them.

Option I didn't know I really needed and am grateful for: the removable power cord. When one is breaking camp early in the dark and the rain is pouring down, it is priceless not to have to stand outside in the wet threading the cord back into its receptacle!

The Anderson hitch is very easy to hook up, to my pleasure. The 21 tows very well,, in headwinds and pouring rain it was barely noticeable behind the Highlander. Going over the Siskyous the slowest we went was 40mph, and that only for a short time. Granted it is only 4000+ feet, not the Rockies, it is a long straight uphill pull.

Sally,
Did you have Escape put your hatch on the side of the bed vs the foot? I see a handle in the edge of the last picture?

Those drawers with the hanging closet look great.

I've got a hatch in both places. Couldn't decide so took both and I'm glad. Makes that storage space more accessible. I have so much storage now maybe I should open a junk shop?

I could use help deciding where to put the paper towel holder. Also the bath towel holder and the toothbrush one. If I put a ring towel holder under the mirror on the bath door, will it be sturdy?
