More choice for personalization

We are expanding customers choice within standard pricing for fabric, flooring and countertops.

For some people this will help with the options paralysis.

Customers can still provide their own custom choice as per previous.

I would be interested in your thoughts on a new wood or other interior to supplement our Oak and Maple choices. I have spoken with some customers who want white and others who want cherry.

Looks like the original stock was champagne fabric, sunset beige for the floor, and gallo for the countertops. So now we have 6 more choices making 6 to the 6 th power in additional combinations...what about trim colors, still the black. brown, and white?

Very nice to have more choices ! What about improving the exterior hardware ! Having had our trailer for 6 years now the interior is not too bad . But the exterior really doesn’t hold up especially where you deal with UV’s . Have replaced most of ours with stainless . Pat

Well cherry could be a nice rich look but might be too dark for us to consider, white if done with some interest could be nice. White wash, analogous to just painting the current oak with white might be one way to go, or perhaps solid white with some light wood (maple) accents. Not sure what folks were thinking when the suggestions were made. I like the selection of standard colours, we have already come up with potential options : )

I would be pretty excited about cherry...love the warm look and I don't think I've seen much cherry used in trailers.

What items are you replacing? Vent and a/c covers is a normal replacement item, what else is there?

If we were looking for a new Escape...I would like to see a “Barn Wood” gray finish like that offered by your (I think) sister company Northern Lite Campers here in Kelowna. I think this finish hides a lot of dings, scratches, mismatches as it is expected in the Barn Wood look.

While you are over there at Northern Lite, how about borrowing some of their other nice touches like their Thermal Pane Windows and Double Dome Fantastic Fan. Those acrylic windows really stay warm and clear in the winter, I had them on other campers. The double dome lid is another nice touch to keep the warmth inside.

Sooner or later it was inevitable that something new would come out and make #5 irresistible for you...

I really like the barnwood style grey also and the acrylic windows, especially for the escape hatch. I'm also partial to a mixture or painted cabinets with wood elsewhere. Hickory is one of my favorite woods for cabinets.

Love that you have those new choices for fabric and flooring and countertops. I also like barn wood as a new wood finish choice. It's very different from oak and maple and is trendy right now.

Most of these are classic design issues, when the 2ndG came out most of them disappeared.
